Bleach:Blade of fate is one the of Ds's only 2d fighters, and in that respect, acquits itself rather well in that respect. The gameplay is simplistic and easy to get the hang off, and if you're not the best at doing special attacks you can just tap the specials in the command menu, which makes the really difficult,but useful specials quick to come out.
However,the game completely falls apart everywhere else.
The storyline consists of Bleach's first main story arc, with the player in the spot of Ichigo(the mian character), and proceeds through the different fights. Now this wouldn't be bad in of itself, but fans of the anime will find that the story is completely different from the actual Anime, and is mostly nonsensical to anyone else who Doesn't. The story also wraps itself back around to add more fights, frequently making you fight the same enemies time and again, and without more than one or two easily beatable additions to their fighting style.
The whole game will net you maybe two, three hours of enjoyment by yourself, though you can play with other people who own the game via the DS's built in wireless connection.
All in all, it's a fun game that's ruined by short story, horrible writing,bad voice acting, and low replay-ability
