Licensed games are usually a shoddy breed but Treasure has successfully broken the mould with this. Everything about the game screams quality, from the wonderful 2D visuals to the tight and responsive control system.
DS fans have long had to endure the taunts of their PSP-owning brethren when it comes to the pitiful number of decent beat-'em-ups available for the system but now the tables have been turned. Bleach: Blade of Fate is arguably one of the finest handheld scrappers available to date.
