Conclusion: Just like an RTS-only affair, Overture is about capturing a number of territories that show up on an exploded map. The story dictates which territories are attacked in Overture ’s case, and, instead of going about it via an iso-view commander, you’ll be partaking in much of this action while wearing your hack-and-slash hat. But you can’t be at two places at once, and sometimes to win a percentage of the battlefield, you’ll have to rely on issued AI units.
Excerpt: After a brief glance at Overture you might mistake it for a Dynasty Warriors clone. You'd be wrong to do so. While Overture is largely a hack and slasher that sends you speeding across large battlefields and slicing through enemies by the dozens, the game also adds RTS elements. While this strategy twist could have made the title shine, it's marred by too many problems. When your units cluster together it is difficult to select specific units.
Summary: Guilty Gear 2: Overture is the newest installment in the Guilty Gear franchise, deviating from the series beat'm up norm by not calling it GG X, as well as by adding RTS elements where you need resources to gather your army and destroy the enemy's base.
Conclusion: Guilty Gear 2: Overture is not exactly another fighting game from the Guilty Gear series. Overture takes the hack and slash formula and ruins it with its strategy flair. Fans of Guilty Gear may want to at least try this one out. For now I would at least wait for a price drop, Overture is just not worth the asking price.
