    A great Bleach 'thing' but it lacks the grace that holds the show's combat together. [June 2009, p.70]

    Bleach: Dark Souls is a great 2D beat 'em up for hardcore fighting fans but I can't see it bringing in many new converts to the genre.
  3. This is a great 2D fighting experience for the DS. With impressive graphics and entertaining super moves this is definitely something that Bleach fans will enjoy. There are few new features to be found here when compared to the predecessor though. A multiplayer mode that only requires one cartridge is a big plus for the experience.
  4. Bleach: Dark Souls is a good fighting game, focusing on the most important aspect: its playability. It might no be revolutionary, but it's a good game considering that it's based on a license.

    Bleach dark souls is a very fun fighter for the ds, there are alot of great characters and alot of your favorite bankais are in here evenBleach dark souls is a very fun fighter for the ds, there are alot of great characters and alot of your favorite bankais are in here even ikkaku's bankai, story takes place right after the events of saving rukia and is basically like a filler in the series, this game feels great, fighting is tight very responsive, character roster is very large, a very flushed out story mode, arcade mode, survival mode, versus the only negatives i have to say this game has is the inclusion of worthless characters, you can play as a nurse and a random soul reaper who throws rocks and little hollows who serve no purpose, there are sometimes slowdowns when you fight with four people on the screen only happened in the final fight, but other than that a great game and worth owning !

    Sweet game, i love bleach,but feels more of an expansion from blade of fate and some character choices were terrible.
