Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN Review Round-Up

1 min read

Guilty Gear (3)


The reviews are in Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN, a game that I’ve been waiting perhaps too long for. Classic action, with some of that shiny new sheen that I’m a sucka for. Here’s what the critics have to say about the game:

Destructoid – 9/10

Guilty Gear (2)

Guilty Gear is still one of the most badass fighting franchises out there, and Xrd -Sign- honors that legacy. It looks breathtaking, the action is constant and in-your-face, and although the roster is smaller than I’d like, there is a lot of variation to be found once you start digging into the game.

Cheat Central – 4.9/5

Guilty Gear (4)

Like I said before Guilty Gear Xrd is complicated, and without knowledge of how the game works you are going to get frustrated. Usually, I take off points for lack of accessibility, but the game is just so good when you understand everything, it’s hard to do so. So just play the damn tutorial, ok?

IGN – 8.5/10

Guilty Gear (1)

Guilty Gear Xrd has enough wacky characters and well-crafted tutorials to be interesting for novices, but it’s those of us seeking a challenge that will find the most to love here. The online experience is a little rough, but its wildly diverse cast, and its dynamic, offense-oriented combat system makes Guilty Gear Xrd a triumphant, long-awaited return for this venerable fighting game franchise.

Hardcore Gamer – 4/5

Guilty Gear (5)

Guilty Gear Xrd is back to its challenging but entertaining roots, managing to be a happy medium between casual fighters like Mortal Kombat and longtime competitive titles like Street Fighter. It’s not without it’s plot-related flaws, the result of misplaced ambition, assuredly, but Xrd enters the generation as the go-to change-of-pace fighter that’s nearly impossible to put down once you get started. Thanks to a solid understanding of core fighting game mechanics, Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is the installment fans have been waiting for.

Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN will be out locally. Eventually. Pardon me while I go bug Prima for details.

    Great game! I bought it off the US PSN store on launch. New to Guilty Gear. Still learning the ropes. Highly recommend it! 🙂
