  1. A 2D fighting game fan's dream come true. It's got all the flash and pizzazz of "Marvel vs. Capcom," the finely tuned balance of "Street Fighter," numerous unprecedented gameplay enhancements that push what we expect from the genre and some of the best hand-drawn graphics to ever grace a videogame.
  2. This game is so good that it is easily one of the best values you can find on the Xbox!
  3. If you're unfamiliar with Guilty Gear, then be prepared to get blown away - and possibly overwhelmed - by the incredible depth of this underrated fighting franchise. [Aug 2004, p.50]
  4. With a cast more than 20 strong, and move sets that are as well-balanced and diverse as they are visually incomprehensible, #Reload's gameplay parallels its absurd-but-charming title in terms of completeness and gameplay sophistication. [Oct 2004, p.62]
  5. At $20US Guilty Gear X2 #Reload is a steal for those that are passionate about their fighting games. Snatch it up!

    #Reload doesn't bring anything new to the table from the other GGX2 releases. It is simply a slightly more detailed version of a fighter that's starting to show some of its age.
  7. Forget the 'this isn't what Xbox was made for' cynics. Gear is fast and exciting and we love the 2D approach. Sadly though, there's no real originality to keep you coming back for more. [Xbox World]

    While I only have the Japanese PSP version, I see no reason to doubt that this is just as good. Smooth, precise controls, addicting gameplay, great PSP graphix, and an awsome cast of characters. Forget Street Fighter, buy this now! Expand

    One of the best 2D fighting games, awesome soundtrack, was great on PS2 but its back with a new character and XBOX live support.

    I'm a huge fighting game fan, and it's nice to see a title with something unique. It's 2d, but plays a little different than many other 2d fighters. But personally, I find the ultra Japanese style (read weird) a bit unappealing at times. If you don't mind androgenous men and ultra cutesy girl fighters, then add 1 point to this score. Expand
