Summary: This is a decent strategy game but it has its issues. But if you like strategy games and wanted to know the history of all the characters from Bleach this is a good game. It is simple but enjoyable.
Summary: Granted, the dialogue scenes can get a bit tedious, but for a fan of Bleach and RPGs, it's a dream come true! Play as many classic Bleach characters, and create your OWN Bleach character to immerse into the Soul Society. Puts you in the action, follows the game-stories and the anime-story very well. Very pleased, but I'd ONLY recommend it for Bleach fans, not the causal RPGer.
Summary: Phew! only played for 2 hours and the game is just beggining. love it! will probably play over again, and again since i am a bleach fan. thought would be dull like other games to shows or movies. i'd recommend it to people who arent so picky and wanna play a bleach related game on their DS. have fun!
Summary: While I found this game enjoyable, as it lasts for a while, and definitely a must have game for any Bleach fan, it is the pace of this game that leaves more to be desired. The in-battle pace is very, very slow, which can be a bit frustrating, and there is no way to change it.
A Bit of a Disappointment Compared to Previous Installments

Summary: I'm a big fan of the Bleach series over all, and I own the previous two games for DS released in the United States - The Blade of Fate and Dark Souls. Compared to those, Third Phantom is a bit of a disappointment. First, your choices in the game are very limited - you chose whether to play as one of two twin soul reapers, neither of whom is featured in the show. Second, be prepared to deal with a loooong back story. This game is very story intensive.
