    Without a doubt, I can recommend GG Xrd Revelator REV 2 to any fighting game fan. If you've played the previous versions of Xrd, there are enough additions and changes that make this upgrade worth it. If you've never played it before, this version is a great starting point. It is an absolute blast to play and even watch, and should not be missed. If you aren't a fighting game fan, I believe this game may just turn those who experience it. Definitely a Winner.

    Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 isn’t the final version of this amazing fighting game, but the most complete one at the moment. The new characters are amazing and well balanced with the rest of the cast, and the overall gameplay is still over the top.

    It's still the best fighting game around, and the "new" characters are great, but it's not as big an update as Revelator, and the new story scene that follows the ending makes one thing clear: it's not going to be the last.

    All in all, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is a welcome upgrade for fans that own the previous iteration (they even get a discount), and an especially meaty experience for newcomers, even if the story will be far ahead of their level of understanding. With Injustice 2 and Tekken 7 falling in the same month, it’s been a heck of a comeback for modern fighting games.

    If you haven't got the last game, then this one comes with a much better content. It is no doubt one of the best 2D fighting games available right now.

    I am not a big fighting game player and would say the only FG's I ever played heavily were SF2 and Tekken 3 back in the day. I had the itchI am not a big fighting game player and would say the only FG's I ever played heavily were SF2 and Tekken 3 back in the day. I had the itch for a good fighter and had been trying to decide between Tekken 7 and Injustice 2 but I stumbled upon this little gem and decided to give it a shot since I loved the art style and it was $20 cheaper than the others.

    I'm glad I did and I have become super into this fighter. The characters are all pretty unique with great designs and the art and animation is phenomenal. It has incredible depth and tons of mechanics for hardcore fighters but there is nothing to daunting and you can still have tons of fun and not be semi competent even with out mastering/understanding them all. The lobbies and rooms one of the coolest setups for online play I have seen in any game. The player base is not huge but it's enough that I have never had too much trouble finding people of my lowly skill level to spar with no matter the time of day.

    If you have even the slightest interest at all in this game give it a shot and you will not regret it.

Though there are a lot of mechanical difficulties toGuilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 is yet another expansion of an already vast and diverse fighter. Though there are a lot of mechanical difficulties to overcome, the game itself does a wonderful job of teaching new players the complexities of the game. However, due to these complexities, it does make for what I would consider to be an often overcomplicated fighter. If that's your thing, you'll love this, but some obstacles feel unnecessary. Expand

    This is technically a new game because they have released another disk for this game but its basically a glorified patch for Guilty Gear Xrd.This is technically a new game because they have released another disk for this game but its basically a glorified patch for Guilty Gear Xrd. So if you’re a big fan of Anime Fighting games then this is a no-brainer to buy. Everyone is going to be moving onto the newest version so it makes sense to move along with them.

    For me personally, I like a more basic fighting game. Guilty Gear is one of those games where it starts to get a little too complex for me. The combos are very long, the characters are all very different and quite honestly the core game mechanic is, everything is cheap. Every character has unblockables and mix-ups for days and it’s a steep learning curve.

    I’ve always liked the more “basic” fighting games like Mortal Kombat, Injustice, Street Fighter or Killer Instinct. This game is more for the very serious fighting game scene. This will never be a mainstream fighting in American Culture. People who are buying this game are going to tournaments.

    The game itself is zany and wild and lots of fun to play with the kids, remind them that age and treachery will always defeat youth andThe game itself is zany and wild and lots of fun to play with the kids, remind them that age and treachery will always defeat youth and skill... But I'm giving it a mediocre score because of the menus which are among the most irritating I've ever encountered. Maybe my copy is wonky, but just getting into the game is a challenge. Begins with a menu asking if you want to use an existing save or go on without one. Either option will usually land you back at this question again and it doesn't seem to let you through until you've answered it a few times. After that you're bombarded by other menus and menus within menus. It all just feels really clunky.

    That said, the characters are really creative and fun.
