    Ok, other game of the Guilty Gear saga (or best say Guilty Gear 2 saga), Overture have good points for do a great game, the graphics, story, gameplay and other things. But the big problem in this new game is intent have two different genres. Good game.

    I rather enjoyed myself, playing this, and the online is great, though it sucks to hit lag from time to time. 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.

    This game is severely underrated. 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
    This game is severely underrated. 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.

  1. With crawling load times and a story that reeks of awkward Japanese translation, a glance should be all you give this game. [Oct 2008, p.109]

    But the gameplay is unnecessarily complicated, with the busy HUD being the worst example. [Nov 2008, p.75]
  3. The suspect RTS elements, when combined with the premium price tag, make it hard to recommend Guilty Gear 2: Overture as a release-day purchase.
