Weak

Guilty Gear 2 has indeed been found guilty.

I am going to be keeping it real with everyone. Guilty Gear 2 has to be one of the worst games that I have played in a while. I have to say that the mixture between fighting and RPG's in this case was not a good move. I wasted my time and space waiting for this game to make it's way to my XBOX 360. What else can I say about this? the graphics are like a 2 and the sound is like a 2 and the game play is 1. I know that my totals come out to 5, but I am taking a point away because of my time wasted, so -1 for wasting my time. I give this game a solid 4 and I feel that I am being nice with that.

It's like Dynasty Warriors mixed with some sort of strategy system.

You get to command an army of servants and they spawn from your master soul, then these other things spawn from ghost which are basically super weak and it's main purpose is to capture more ghost. Control your servants to take over the enemies master soul, but they can't destroy it, only you can! <<--- Right, that's what I said, "do what now?" I was so confused it made the game hard to follow. The good thing is you have a help menu system that will re-explain everything.

After I got the jist of things, the game went pretty smoothly for some time. After about the 5th hour in (not in one sitting oh gawd no), I realized, that I have done nothing but the same thing for the whole time I've been playing this game. Sure the game throws new bits and pieces here and there, new servants, new obstacles etc., but the main focus on the game is to take over the ghost and destroy the enemies master soul in various different maps

Now, Graphics, voice acting/sound and controls. The meat of a game.

Well, I have to say graphics were below average, voice acting bad, sound fit with the game just fine. No problems there and controls, it'll frustrate you for a while. I won't go into details because, I no longer want to continue this review, but I will close with this statement.

If you don't have anything else to play and nothing else is really interesting and this game seems like the only choice and you can't wait a month to get something else. I give you permission to get this game. It'll fill a gaming void temporarily. But only under those circumstances get this game
