  1. Once again, the developers at Treasure have done a hell of a job on nearly every aspect with this title. It's safe to say Bleach is the best fighting game on the DS but nothing like a console game.
  2. Even if the branding were stripped from the title, this game would still be a solid and enjoyable fighting game. Bleach fans will enjoy the title more due to the nature of the storyline and the general presentation of the game.

    When it comes to multiplayer options, Bleach kills 99 per cent of known beat ‘em up stars – even the excellent Jump Superstars – dead. [JPN Import; Apr 2006, p.94]
  4. If you're prepared to ignore its shortcomings and get to know it, there's an approachable beat-'em-up in here, even if it yields to your whim far too easily.

    I have never been a fan of the fighting genre but this game certainly changed my mind. The easy to pick up fighting mechanics and wide I have never been a fan of the fighting genre but this game certainly changed my mind. The easy to pick up fighting mechanics and wide assortment of characters to choose from makes this game fun for anyone. I especially liked the touch screen buttons that replace the annoying button combos of other fighting games. I have tried the DS download multiplayer and it is excellent, they do nothing to limit the experience just because all of your friends dont have the game. The only thing that leaves a something to be desired is the story mode, but, if you care about the story you should watch the first three season of the tv show before buying the game. Full Review »

I haven't tried the online or wireless play yet, but even if the wireless part turns out mediocre (I've read it's actually really good), the single player is already worth a 10. Full Review »
