  1. Guilty Gear 2 may be an interesting experiment in cross-genre game design, but it's mostly a shallow mess.

    A dull, dreary game. [Dec 2009, p.88]

    Problem is that neither the strategy nor combat elements are developed in any meaningful way. All but the most strategy-savvy gamers will regard the capture-and-hold mechanics as primitive, and as for the combat...well, I really wasn't kidding with the Dynasty Warriors comparison.
  4. The combat system is too watered down to be compelling and the strategic aspect too simplistic. The only real challenge derived from the game lies in balancing these two aspects, which is satisfying for brief moments.

The action aspects of it blow games like Dynasty Warriors out of the water (and yet this game commonly gets worse reviews). The strategy aspect could definitely have been better, but they certainly aren't bad at all.

    Pros: Very fun action, effective strategy, many different and challenging difficulty levels. This is a game that can occupy your time for very many hours.

    Cons: The graphics could definitely be better for a 360 game. The story is a bit hokey if you're unused to Guilty Gear.

The online community for it is great, and if you're actually a fan, it gives you quite a bit to think about, story-line wise. I'm rather glad I picked it up on release day. Full Review »
