Horrible

I am a fan of 2D fighters, while i prefer the third "D" i can still roll with only two. That said the guilty gear series has my respect, while I think the combo system could use a bit of work as it isn't very realistic, they are still good games. But what happens when you port this game onto the Wii? Well you get this: A fighter from a great series of games, with some of the worst controls i have ever seen in a 2D fighter. If you have played the other games, you know that the combos take a lot of skill to pull off, but it can be done. Well not any more, Accent Core on the is nothing more than a button-masher with a pretty title. There really isn't much else to say about the game, except, get in on the ps2.

Good

Good game, maybe not so well suited for Wii

I've always loved guilty gear, so I'm probably giving this game a higher rating than it deserves.

This game has really interesting (bordering on absurd) characters, hilarious heavy metal music, and good looking, heavily stylized backdrops. Fights are interesting as ever, with each character having their own unique special moves and style of fighting. For overall design I would give this game a 10!

But the controls for this game are pretty bad (using the Wii remote/nunchuck). To punk and kick you have to shake the nunchuk (it varies depending on how hard you shake). And to do a slash and heavy slash you shake the wii remote. OR, you can bypass these and simply use the D-pad. Using the nunchuk and Wii remote, fighting sequences take a lot longer then they should for a 2D fighter like this. But if you use the D-pad you can do combination sequences much more quickly, although its more uncomfortable on your hand.

If you're really into fighting games, definitely DON'T use the Wii remote and nunchuck. If you're like me, and don't mind shaking them about and having your guilty gear characters fight a bit slower (and perhaps clunkier) than you are used to, than this game is pretty good.
