Product Description

Amazon.com

Guilty Gear X2 is a simple, fun 2-D fighting game with quirky characters and a variety of options that allow for a customized gaming experience. A perfect blend of old-school 2-D gameplay (think Street Fighter) and responsive controls makes it very easy to get started. You get to control a host of oddball characters (20 different fighters are unlocked at the start) who all have detailed profiles and continually animate during the game. Some characters come with guest characters that make appearances during or after the fight. Backgrounds contain detailed animations and changes in weather. A decent selection of generic fighting-game music rounds out the title.

GGX2 offers nine different game modes: arcade, Medal Gauge, vs. 2P, vs. CPU, training, survival, mission, story, and gallery. All modes are available at the beginning of the game. Story mode adds anime-style background and unlockable cinemas that can be saved to a memory card. Mission mode offers up a fully detailed system to control all aspects of battle, and Medal Gauge allows for new combos by building up a collection of medals.

Aerial battles are similar to a Marvel vs. Capcom-style game and allow for some amazing combo possibilities. A return from Guilty Gear X is the Gauge meter, which allows for explosive attacks that will sometimes fill up the entire screen. Instant Kill is also back in this version and is similar to a Mortal Kombat fatality--but occurs during the match.

Guilty Gear is one of the premier 2-D fighting-game franchises, and GGX2 lives up to the legacy. Instead of the series entering the world of three dimensions, we are given a two-dimensional feast of options, great graphics, and gameplay. --Carlos Rodela

Pros:

  • Zany characters
  • Great 2-D graphics
  • Wealth of options
Cons:
  • Story mode a bit confusing
  • Lack of save points
  • Instant Kills difficult to execute

Guilty Gear X2. This is an unique fighting game not seen around much anymore. A lot of kids will undoubtedly take one look at this game and go (insert sterotypical blonde voice) "ewww, that is SO 1997". This game doesn't use flashy 3D megapolygons. But it has so much style and is so well animated that it doesn't need the high polygon count. Animations are crisp, fluent and pack tons of style. This game does use pixels, along with a few CG flashes here and there. The game looks and feels like a live action controllable anime. That's what makes this game look so great! It is similar looking to the older games like Marvel vs Capcom and all those good times we had at the arcades. However, this game truly does stand out.
How so? This game has wild animation that NEVER rests in its background and in its characters. And each character is unique, adding huge variety. Everything from scary gothic-types with big scythes, to cute little 12 year old pirate girls with big anchors. Every character is either serious, hilarious, cool or just plain bizzare. Each character has their own style and will never, ever do the same things. I've noticed in other fighting games that developers like to rehash and use the same moves for characters. Look at Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, where Scorpion and Kenshi have the EXACT SAME SWORD MOVES. However, in this game, every character will do something different. Each character has true styles that will take some time to learn and master. Each character is balanced and well designed. Each combo is unique in this game. Allowing for long combos, flashy and brillant special attacks, and a new thing added to the fighting genre, the Instant Kill. Instant Kill moves are moves that are hard to pull off but do as their names say. They instantly kill the opponent in one hit!

Sammy Studios has recently released the follow up to Guilty Gear with Guilty Gear X2 for the Playsation 2. The 2D fighter now contains 20 different playable characters and a metal soundtrack that sounds absolutely amazing. Stunning visuals, outrageous fighting styles and several levels of play are what you can expect from the title. The story of focuses on war between humans and the bio-weapon Gears. Thought to be finished in Guilty Gear X, they are back and bigger and stronger than ever!
Is this 1985, 2003 or 2180?
Looking at the names of some of the characters and a listen at the soundtrack might have you thinking you time-warped back to the day when groups like Guns N' Roses and Testament were in vogue. That would be because the soundtrack sounds like it came right off the record of Japanese guitar idol Kuni or maybe the band Loudness. Also, the names of the people you'll match up against include Axl Low, Eddie, Zappa, Slayer, Testament, Venom and Chipp Zanuff!
Guilty Gear A La Mode
Each character has some pretty dazzling moves and attacks and it's up to you to beat the living tar out of your opponent before he/she does it to you.
You can practice your combos and perfect your attacks in the training mode. You can also set up the characteristics of your opponent for maximum skill enhancement.
Arcade Mode - finds you matched up against a series of computer opponents until you finish the game. A second player can enter the fray at any time.
M.O.M Mode - enters you into a one-fall match where medals are awarded to you as you utilize your combos on your opponent. The greater the level of the medal the more points you'll get.
Vs 2P Mode - finds you on the battlefield against another live player.

Guilty Gear X2 is a 2D fighting game that boasts gorgeous anime graphics, detailed backgrounds, great fight combos, and a soundtrack straight out of the 80s of rock.
First, the graphics. They are just amazing. The characters move just like anime cartoons (and with better animation than many out there) - complete with billowing smoke, ripple effects, zaps of lightning, and much more.
Being a 2D fighter you can't move into the scenery, but the backgrounds are well detailed and match the characters nicely. The fighting styles are quite detailed, each is unique. Characters fight with anchors, guitars, yoyos, jumprope chains, and much more.
The game is definitely themed to 80s rock and metal music. The background music jams and was done by great bands. The characters themselves are named things like Axl and Venom.
The fighting gameplay is great. You can play against other players, or in a variety of single player modes that are engrossing and challenging. There are numerous special moves including killer moves that can be done at any time in the game (if you can get the button combos down!)
Story mode is around 10 battles, but on the downside you can't save. So once you start a sequence, you can't save partway through and restart it later. Some battles can be incredibly hard until you figure out the right combo to win, so you can be stuck in one spot for an hour or more. Still, a game should be challenging sometimes!
Also, most of the dialogue is in Japanese, although they do subtitle the important parts in English. Even though it's in Japanese, some of the taunts can get very repetitive.
Highly recommended for any fighting game fan, especially for those who have another human around to play multiplayer with!
