  Brilliant!.................if you own the classic controler!

This is another worthy instalment of the guilty gear franchise filled with beautiful character animations and kick ass heavy metal (if you haven't played a guilty gear game trust me the music really works even if you hate metal). This is a top notch fighter with a good learning curve, provided of coarse you practice a bit first. The final boss on the story mode is difficult yes but when you beat her you feel invincible and more than makes up for the harsh difficulty spike.

This is all great stuff but unfortunately the motioncontrols are clumsy and often result in death. There is no precise feeling to the combos and specials are often pulled off by luck rather than skill. This really marrs an otherwise fatastic game.

The other slight issue is there is limited modes apart fom the typical survival and story. This is a game you need to absorb yourself in for seversl days to get really good with all the characters and you've done all the modes. Basically the life span of this game comes from your own obsesion for the game.

This game is up ther with the very best fighters on any system today. The graphics are incredible and the characters well balanced and beautifuly constructed. If you are thinking of buying this game then be prepared to put the hours in to enjoy itdsmany subtle treasures. You will also need to buy a classic controller to play properly. Without the classic controller take away 2 stars.

Now just to start off i havent played the guilty gears series before, this is my first one and yes i have played it.

When i started to play this, it instantly reminded me of jo jo bizzare adventure on the dreamcast, the moves, the mania, the gameplay, all just like it. The problem is the game gets very repetitive too quickly, its good for short bursts, some things are annoying, such as the annoucer saying rock on before the fight? no idea why.

But overall its a good game, not to everyone tastes, but its better to look at some of vids on youtube first, in order to see if this title applies to you.

  Unfairly Difficult

Guilty Gear continues it's huge flashy heavy metal 2D fighting series with Accent Core.
But this is where the fun parts end. As I found out the hard way; the final boss is unfairly difficult to defeat and with nothing much to do other than fight all the time it doesn't carry the fun mini games that the DS game Dust Strikers had.
If you enjoy hacky, flashy and rocky then buy this game, otherwise get a better fighting game.
