Conclusion: Aside from the multiplayer mania of arcade and versus modes, Isuka has another noteworthy mode: GG Boost. Taking a cue from greats like Final Fight and Double Dragon, Boost mode transforms the Guilty Gear landscape into that of a side-scrolling beat-‘em-up (complete with co-op option), where you can use all your arcade-mode moves to obliterate wave after wave of fodder characters (and smash power-ups out of barrels).
Excerpt: I have nothing but love for the Guilty Gear series. Word is bond. However, this may be its compulsory misstep. Every long-running series, no matter what the genre, has to have at least one game in the series that no one wants to talk about. It's the black sheep of the line, the serious misfire; it's the Wand of Gamelon , the Street Fighter: The Movie , the Mortal Kombat: Special Forces . Guilty Gear Isuka is one of those games.
Excerpt: With SNK finally jumping its King of Fighters series into 3D, things were looking a little bleak for fans of 2D fighters. If anything, Guilty Gear Isuka proves there is still plenty of life left in 2D fighters. Guilty Gear Isuka takes all of the forward progress made it last year's Guilty Gear X2 and pumps it up with new backgrounds, music, play modes and a brand new fighter.
Conclusion: Two new game modes have also been added, first being a side-scrolling beat ‘em up mini-game a la Streets of Rage called Boost Mode, where players take one of the games characters and pound away on hordes of mindless thugs. The second new mode is a character-building, RPG-esque mode where characters take control of a robot that can slowly learn every move in the game.
Excerpt: Video games are at a point in which certain social and political issues are playing an important role in the development of characters and environments. The Grand Theft Auto series delves into the issue of violence, the Sims recreates everyday life, and the Guilty Gear series raises questions, questions such as: “ Is it right to kick a transvestite child in the face?” Or, “How ethical is it for a paper bag headed physician to hit someone with a scalpel?
Excerpt: Après un fantastique volet X2, Guilty Gear revient vers la PS2 pour y jouer la carte de l'originalité en se focalisant sur des combats jusqu'à quatre joueurs. Sur le papier, ça a l'air tout à fait prometteur, mais une fois la manette en mains, ça donne quoi ?
