For a series that has a strong background in the 2d fighting arena this game takes a step back. Horribly. It's a cheap Dynasty Warriors knock-off that does it wrong. Guilty Gear is known for it's lightning fast game play a myriad opportunities for crazy and flash combo's. This game barely gives you 6.
The only returning characters to the fold are Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske. For those looking for a little bit of nostalgia those are the only two that will give it. There are a couple of more characters that are new and made for this game. Interesting character concepts that Aksys' is infamous for. But apart from a 6 character list that is all there is to play.
Game play is horrendous. Like I stated before, it's a cheap Dynasty Warriors knock-off, which brings shame to the Guilty Gear series and doesn't give credibility to the next game that might be brought on the next gen. It's efficient enough to pound the attack button, and while you're at it throw in a couple of jumps, to affectively beat this game. The enemies are laughable unless a "Master" shows up, then be prepared for spamming and evasive maneuvers until you can back them into a corner/wall.
Guilty Gear's first leap into the next-gen arena burns up like the Hindenburg. For a true next-gen Guilty Gear game, you might as well download Guilty Gear X#2:Reload from the Original Xbox section in the Xbox marketplace.
(This review is not the one that was originally suppose to be posted, my computer pretty much slapped me in the face and erased what I was working on at the time. So this is done hastily and not to the par that I want it. Take it what it's worth.)

well the guilty gear franchise take another step backward with this one. I am a HUGE fan of their fighting series (even isuka) but this was a giant step in the wrong direction. The lovable hand drawn graphics are gone and replaced with playstation 2 quality 3d environments. The gameplay is very similar to Chaos Legion (ps2)controlling groups of troops to take over other areas and the enemies. This game was a waste of time and a waste of space in my queue. Not even worth the rental. Stick to what you know...2d fighters...thats what everyone loves and what everyone wants......
I guess if you are true to the franchise then this would be considered a "good" game but I'm not and I thought it was pretty bad! What's the deal with all of the text-over over half the screen? You can't see anything! It was very aggravating. and the combo moves? What up wit dat? I don't know, I didn't like it at all. There are tons of other games to play before you should get around to this title!
