  1. With stunning graphics and solid gameplay, you’ll be hard pressed to find flaws that take anything away from this game.

    Depending on how you slice it, it is arguably the prettiest game ever made.

    I was expecting a boring and slow-paced fighting title like "Tekken Tag Tournament," but what I found was one of the best fighting games of 2001.
  4. If 2D fighters are ever a crime, I'll heartily plead Guilty.
  5. The most serious complaint comes from a lack of options...Despite this, Guilty Gear's aesthetic beauty and rich gameplay are more than enough for fighting fans.
  6. Beautiful visuals, amazing depth and accessibility that few other fighters have been able to offer.
  7. The game is accessible enough that I had a chance to defeat a master that I rarely come close to beating on other games.

    It plays amazingly well and there's plenty of style and depth to be found here. [Dec 2001, p.161]
  9. 2D beat-'em-up aficionados are unlikely to be convinced by the game.
  10. 80
    GGX’s solid and responsive control scheme keeps the fighting exciting, although some moves are difficult to execute and require patience to master fully…if at all.
  11. It’s got a cast of characters unlike any other, complete with unique fighting styles and a slew of new gameplay strategies to master. The incredibly intense fighting and over-the-top and utterly insane style aren’t too shabby, either. It’s a far cry from the old Hadokens, Shoryukens and Psycho Crushers of old, but that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad thing.
  12. Does its job quite well--it's a graphically remarkable yet otherwise conventional 2D fighting game that plays well, sounds good, and offers a memorable lineup of cool characters with countless crazy moves.
