Game 007: Guilty Gear X Advance
Guilty Gear is one of the more popular fighting game series, so it’s reasonable to say that it should get a handheld port, and around the time of Guilty Gear X (the main game in the series), the only one out there was the GBA. Well, at least Sammy tried to be faithful to the source material in this port….
I pick Milla Rage, the girl with the really long hair. Now let’s do this!
Uh-oh… That’s not a good sign there….
Yeah, why in the world would they use the EXACT same sprites, but downsized? I know for games like SFII Turbo Revivial it wouldn’t look too bad, but Guilty Gear sprites are extremely big, and they look terrible this small.
A minute or two later….
Yeah, notice MY health bar.
Wow, great post-win writing for Milla…..
And some arenas just look completely fake, like this one. I don’t remember problems like this on the original.
I get the same exact background 2 matches later, too…
The ending. Wow. Definitely the easiest fighting game I’ve EVER played. Even Mortal Kombat 4 for the GBC was harder than this (Shinnok using Scorpion’s moves did help with that =P)! I looked back and saw this was on easy, so I played it again on Hard, but it wasn’t much harder at all….
There’s a Guilty Gear for the PSP that came out a while back, so this game is already useless. Don’t waste your money on this one unless you really love the series, but stick purely to Nintendo systems and the PC, or something like that.
Bonus: Guilty Gear played at 300% speed:
