im doing 2 reviews. First Street Fighter Alpha and Guilty Gear x2. This my first fighing game review so hope you can injoy. Before the review, Im not a good speller and that meens bad grammer so u may see errors here and there.
Street Fighter Alpha
Fighting games don't really need a story so im not going count much of the story part of the review. It petty much a tournament and ur trying to win it. The has a desent intro
There are 10 character and 1 unluckable character(I think). All the character have there diffent attacks besides Ryu and Ken. U can pick from menu, Arcade mode, Versus mode and Trauning mode. Training mode lets u play ur character to test there moves and combo on a non-moving cpu. Versus mode let you fight a 2nd player. Arcade mode lets u fight a group of fights and try to make to the end. On the Chraravter menu, U can pick of the color of character deppent on what bottun you press. Start is the origihal color. You can choose to make the game fast or it namel speed from the arcade street fighter 2. Once you fight, the holl point to get your enemy fighter to lose all it ho by seeing the Yellow line is gone to win the fight. You can also wait for time to run out and if u have the most hp, u win. You need to 2 win or more depenting on how you set option. There are 6 attack bottuns. 3 botton contan Punchs and the other 3 contans Kicks. How it orighaly set, Squarl is Low Punch, Tringle is Mid Punch, and L1 is High Punch. The same with kicks but, X is Low Kick, O is Mid Kick, and R1 is High Kick. Press Up to Jump and Down to duck. Character can do there speical attack such as Ken can do a spining kick by press Down, Left Down, and Left + Kick. Depenting on how long the spin kick with be on the Low, Mid, and High kicks. Ken can do a blast or more like the Ka me ha me haaa thing by pressing Down, Right Down, and Right + Punch. There are speical combos for each character. Ken can this uper cup 3 times by doing Right, Down, Right Down, Right, Down, Right Down, and Right + Punch. To do this, you must fill ur Level bar in the bottom left or right screem. Your max is level 3. It takes 1 level to do a combo. The only probablems with game is that it doesn't have a lot characters and the game doesn't till you have to do the combos. In the menal, it tells you how to do the special attacks and combo for each characher but the thing is that here is more then one combo for each character and the menal gives you one. This meens that you have to fine the combos on the internet.
The game looks better then the other past street fighter games. Intro looks nice and the animtion too. The stages are good to desent.
Music and sound
I found music intro nothing much. The menu nothing much and the stages and fights just fine to desent. The characters are japanese which is kind of odd cuz Ken is america but o well. The sound and music was desent
Music and sound-7/10
It won't take you long to beat acarde mode but playing with a friend in vs. mode is kind of fun but compair to street fight 2, there isn't a lot of new things in this game besides characters and graphics.
*Great with friends
*Game doesn't till u everything to know
*Not much new compar to street fighter 2
The game is a desent fighter. It $5 on the PSN and worth the $5. As for $5, the game won't give u a lot but can take some time away if ur not doing anything.
Guilty Gear X2
Again, the game doesn't a story mode but there is a small story to it in the menal. It say something abput I-no and her quest to destroy all perceived threats to her master or robo-ky who is a clone robot of Ky-kiske. There isn't much but it something sines I-no usely the last challeager. There is also a intro which I though was great.
See the preson on the left. He is a boy
I see the game fast and fun. The game menu has, Arcade, M.O.M., Muliplayer, Vs. CPU, Training, and Survival. Training lets you test your moves on the non-moving CPU. Survival is to try to survival the most fight as posable, ur HP will stay the same in each fight. Vs. CPU is fighting ofcause, a cpu. Multiplayer is fighing with a friend. M.O.M. is like Survival but u have to get these metals to get the most points in each fight. Arcade is that you have to fight a group of ppl and fighting the last challeager I-no. On the Character Menu, there are 23 character all with there special moves. Depenting on what botton you press will depent on what color ur character will be. Sqraul is the origihal color for the character. The holl point in the fights is that you need to get the enemy hp to where u see the bar line is gone or you can wait till time runs out and u have the most HP. You need to win 2 matchs to win the fight. You have 5 attack bottons. You have a Kick Botton(X), a Punch botton(sqraul), slash botton(tringel), special slash botton(O), and Dusk botton(R). I like as Briget becasue I like Yo-yos but Im going to tell how his special attacks are used and his combo attacks. A special is a small attack by press 2 or 3 bottons. Some of theres botton attacks work the same way for some characters. A special can work by pressing 2 or 3 bottoms such as Down, Right Down, and Right + special slash. To do a combo is by pressing 2 or 3 bottons. Most combo for some character can be Right, Right Down, Down, Left Down, Left, Right + slash. This will do a lot a damge. To do a combo, ur Tension bar on the bottom left conor. If it alest half full, u can do there combos. The Burst lets u fill that Tension ar by press 2 bottom and the R bottom on the enemy fighter. Do it right and you will have a full bar. You can KO the enemy one shot by pressing All the bottoms to be in a rage then press Down, Right Down, and Right 2 times then press the Special slash too KO the enemy. If u miss then ur Tension will be gone and you won't be able to attack with combos till next round. In this Rage, the Tension will decresse. The arcade mode is challeaging even on it easy mode. Hech, I can never beat the last challeage I-no cuz she so hard. I didn't much probalem with the contols or fighting. overall, the gameplay fast and fun and challeaging.
The graphics and animtion looks really great. The game had a nice intro and the Characters look detailed. The Animtions in fight look really nice and kick @$$. The stage are really detailed with stuff happening in the background. I do wish the game had more stages cuz most characters have the same stages. I-no stage in acrade mode looks emty but looks cool.
Music and Sound
The music intro was great, it fitted the theme of the game. The music in the fighting screem sound great to desent music. The only music i didn't was the menu screem. The characters spock in japanese which i don't mine but at lest they could put the option to at sub.
Music and sound-8/10
Playing with friends, this game is fun but by your self, You can have fun with the acrade but get ready for a hard challeage.
Lasting play- 8/10
*Fast and fun
*Graphics are nice
*bad menu music
It a nice Fighing game which is fast and fun. This game cost $20 on the psn store but can get Guilty Gear x2 core for wii and ps2. Best played with a friend so best getting for that.
