Short Version: Just like all the other versions of Guilty Gear Xrd, Rev 2 is a fantastic fighting game. Everything you see here is a compilation of subtle and small improvements that makes some pretty big differences as a whole. If you love Guilty Gear, or just fighting games in general, this upgrade is a must.
Long Version: As much as I like Blazblue, I have still yet to play a fighting game that’s better than Guilty Gear. It’s stylish, fun and has an awesome soundtrack to boot. All the characters are entertaining and interesting to use in their own way, and of course, the visual aspects of Xrd are mind blowing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still completely in love with Blazblue, but Guilty Gear definitely takes it up to the next level, especially with their updated versions over time. This upgrade definitely feels like the culmination of three years of work, which can be seen in pretty much every aspect of the game.[You can go ahead and read the rest of the review at The Buttonsmashers website. This was one of the last reviews I made for them before I left, so technically the review belongs over there. Take this as a little preview for the whole thing. Either that, or you can just watch the video above. All reviews that I write from here on out will be post on both this website and my Youtube Channel.]
