  • Summary: (Also known as "Bleach Wii: Hakujin Kirameku Rondo") Bleach: Shattered Blade enables gamers to wield the Wii Remote and Nunchuk as their weapons - slashing, jabbing, and lunging in furious battles like a real Soul Reaper. Bleach: Shattered Blade offers an exclusive storyline created specifically for the Wii with 32 characters to choose from. Once a new character is unlocked, players can replay the story episodes utilizing the characters' special moves and weapons which brings a whole new perspective to the storyline. On the Wii, each character can perform special attacks that inflict massive damage on opponents with powerful weapons and super power attacks taken straight from the TV series. Characters can summon supernatural allies for battle support such as a giant serpent, a samurai titan, or a tidal wave. Gamers can also square-off against friends in high-speed multiplayer combat in 3D arenas and environments based on settings from the series. [Sega] Expand

  1. Bleach: Shattered Balde is a great casual fighting game. [Nov 2007, p.62]
  2. 75
    In the end, Bleach: Shattered Blade is a great fighting game that takes advantage of the Wii contextual controls in a very good way - not perfect, but certainly a step in the right direction.
  3. Overall, I was solidly entertained by Bleach: Shattered Blade. Even though I had to look up some stuff to get a general idea of who everyone was, I found myself sucked into some of the cool combat features, such as the "clash" mini-game.
  4. 60
    Hardcore Bleach fans and those looking for another fighting game for their Wii might want to pick this one up, but for everyone else there is better elsewhere.
  5. 60
    A fairly enjoyable experience, coupled with an interesting take on the Wii-remote fighter experience.
  6. Even with a year to polish it up, Bleach feels like a rushed Wii launch job. Very poor. [Mar 2008, p.59]
  7. This is not even a good game for rabid fans, as they are the ones most likely to be offended by Polygon Magic's horrible whitewashing of their favorite fantasy.

    Bleach: Shattered Blade is a good fighter, it has a great selection of characters, the graphics are great, and the sound and voice work is superb, the story mode isn't that good and falls short in the end, but it's a good way to unlock the characters, with to few versus options and not many other modes to increase replay value it gets stale after a while, but if you enjoy Bleach or fighters you will have a blast with this game even if only for a little while.

    Oh man! I love Bleach. I already read about 50 manga books. I also got DS game and it was pretty great. I had so high expectations for this. Loading times take forever. There's no story mode just crappy episode mode. (where you have to fight 8 guys - in one episode with ****ing Hanataro Yamada). Sega came up with their own story and it sucks. Combat is horribly mindless. You have three choices weak attacks which don't do almost anything. Strong attacks which you have to spam. And special attacks (you have 3) which suck and most of time you use other attack than you want. Dubbing is BAD!!! Expand
