    Guilty Gear Strive is a milestone 2D fighting game that raises the bar for anime-like fighters in terms of its visuals, online netcode, and sheer creativity found in all aspects of its design. It’s definitely a different flavor of Guilty Gear, with a heavier focus on fighting in the neutral and a slightly slowed down pace, but it maintains the series soul with absolutely wild character designs, flexible combo system, and a level of creativity both in its presentation and mechanics that is second to none in the genre.

    Overall, Guilty Gear Strive is a fantastic entry in the series that should be given a shot by anyone who enjoys fighting games or wants to get their fingers on some hyperactive 1-on-1 action with friends or the online community. Now I’m jumping back online as I just cannot get enough of the smell of the game.

    Guilty Gear Strive is one of the strongest proposals on the fighting genre right now, both in terms of mechanics, sound, plot and visuals.

    Guilty Gear Strive is a very competent modern fighting game that will appease both veterans and newcomers alike. With a gripping plot, enjoyable cast of characters, and steady learning curve the game is set to be one of the series’ most popular entries. I know for myself, I am keen to get stuck into the nitty gritty as I get deeper with the game, and will eventually take my skills online for the real test against actual human players. While I am disappointed the story side of Guilty Gear Strive is relegated to a cinematic story, the plot is rich with drama and stands toe-to-toe with actual anime productions made for TV. Some variety in the battle dialogue and narration wouldn’t have gone astray, either, but in the grand scheme of things is a minor ding against an otherwise brilliant fighter.

    The fighting in Guilty Gear Strive, though, is impeccable. And that's what matters most. Like all Guilty Gears, it is a game of extremes. If you've tried the series and fallen off because of its complexities, I wouldn't expect a different outcome. If you're up for a challenge, or just want a cool, sharp-looking fighting game to mess around with, Strive knows all the right moves.

    In summary, Guilty Gear Strive is an excellent evolution of a series that’s always provided players with a unique and interesting approach to weapons-based combat, and now it’s slightly less impenetrable for newcomers. It’s got room to grow, but it’s a stylish, standout fighter whose strengths absolutely outnumber its flaws.

    The visually stunning Guilty Gear Strive is a stellar series entry that reworks the familiar combat to make it more newcomer friendly, while retaining an absurd amount of gameplay options.

    guilty gear strive is one of the most enjoyable fighting games i played in a while being an arc system game i bought it after having so muchguilty gear strive is one of the most enjoyable fighting games i played in a while being an arc system game i bought it after having so much fun with fighterz and although i have a lot of experience with fighting games like mortal kombat tekkken and fighterz guilty gear is its own creature there is so much depth in every character you actually have to learn everything about how your character plays and all the other mechanics like roman cancel dust combo and all the others im already 12 hours in and i cant get enough of this game plus the net code is super good you can play online with no problems what so ever and because of all that i really have no complains so ill keep the review very short and simple the game is fun and very beginner friendly so if your a fan of fighting games please give this game a try even if the roster is a tad small i think this game deserves the recognition so in conclusion my score to guilty gear strive is a 9 out of 10 Expand

    Good gameplay, good netcode, questionable lobbies. My main criticism is the lack of single player content as well as the laughable unlockablesGood gameplay, good netcode, questionable lobbies. My main criticism is the lack of single player content as well as the laughable unlockables that come through fishing. Youtube trailers, character art and shoes for your avatar... really ArcSys? Will you ever step up and give us any sort of incentive to grind in this game? Maybe some costumes, unlockable characters, color palletes.. anything outside of irrelevant stuf that can be easily accessed through the internet. There's also a lack of steam collectibles for this game. Story is also a big long cutscene, which adds to the very little content there is to do for offline play.

    It's a good game, but only for the people that are planning to go hard online. Outside of that, game doesn't offer much outside of a very good and detailed tutorial mission.

The combat system shifted in the wrong direction and especially when the previous parts were really top. I'm really bothered by breaking through the walls in arenas, it's annoying mechanics that destroy the dynamics of combat. And that embarrassing story? Too bad to write about it. Street fighter 5 game went to stone all when it came out of only 16 game characters and here no one minds that there are only 15 of them, which is absolutely ridiculous. Very disappointing and of course without crossplay support for the PC, which in translation means that in a few months it will not be possible to play online due to lack of players. Expand
