Excerpt: “Heaven or Hell, Let’s Rock” – This sounds more like it should be a quote from a Guitar Hero game than a fighting game. Anyway… we have been brought this version of the Guilty Gear series from Aksys Games. Some games have quite skimpy game manuals included in their cases. The Guilty Gear XX Accent Core manual has quite a bit of detail in its intricate design. Hopefully this effort transferred over into the actual game as well as in the manual.
Excerpt: Heaven or Hell? What’s it going to be, pal? You’ve got thirty seconds to choose. You going to go the good-natured paladin, or are you going to go with that flame-spouting anti-hero? How about the woman with the sentient hair? No? What about that aristocratic vampire? Not your style, eh? How about the swashbuckling womanizer, or the prepubescent pirate girl that’s pining after him? That veiled assassin with the pool cue looks like fun, too.
Excerpt: 2D fighting games may not be as popular as they used to be, but Arc System Works' Guilty Gear series has continued to chug along over the years. The newest edition in the series is Guilty Gear XX Accent Core, and just in case the title didn't make it obvious, this is the latest edition in a long-running series with a lot of different features that have evolved over time. Even so, casual fighting-game fans should be able to get into the game rather easily.
Pros: New gameplay features should appeal to Guilty Gear veterans, New background stages and voice-overs, Weird cast of characters may freak you out
