My opinion on this game is that... it is the best game I've ever played!!! PRO: Pretty much everything! But here, I'll be more specific. Great fighting system, thanks to the DS's touch screen, we don't have to press a hundred buttons to do a special attack. It's based on around episodes 20 to 63, so you can relive 44 episodes of the series! Play through 23 stories in Story Mode, and play as characters like Kon and Tatsuki, plus 26 other characters. That adds up to 28 characters to play as. My favorite character is Sosuke Aizen. My least favorite character is Kenpachi Zaraki. He's really strong in the show, but he's the stupidest character in the game. He has NO attacks that are helpful, OR that do damage, and in a two-on-one fight, you'll be lucky to survive with what would've been three or four more heavy attacks you would've been dead. Aside from Zaraki and his story, the game is 100% PERFECT! If you're a Bleach fan, or someone looking for the perfect fighting game, this game is for you. Best game I've played so far, buy it if you're a Bleach fan, or are looking for the perfect fighting game as I just said, and you'll agree with me, I guarantee it.

This game seems to lean more towards the anime fans more than the gaming community. Although the game play seems pretty solid and it allows for and auto feature which helps the begginers out by blocking and chaining combos for them. Other than that it really seems to be geared to the fans of the series with nothing about it that would make it stand out from any other fighting games out there now. Still it has it's moments such as the soul card system allowing you to have temporary power boosts or de-buffing your opponents. The wi-fi capability of this game is my personal favorite with a ranking system mode allowing players to gain points and move up the ladder so to speak of the Soul Society. With a starting position at the 10th seat and 1000 points you battle up to 3 other people in a regular battle to increase or decrease your rank. Besides story mode and VS mode there are also a few other modes such as Arcade, Training and Challenge modes. Challenge mode is basically a series of 8 or so combos that get harder each time. There is 8 challenges for every character but you can only do their challenges when you unlock them. Arcade like any other fighting game has you pick a fighter and go through various stages until you have either lost or beaten every opponent with your score being ranked. Training is just as it sounds, boring, it has no tutorial feature in it it's just for fiddling around with moves. That is about it over all great game but I am a fan of the series so I have a bias. Worth the pick-up if you just like fighting games though.
