Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R Review | Metal Arcade

Metal Arcade: Jason Bakker writes:

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R is a fun and unique, but extremely challenging fighter with one huge, inexplicable omission.

As a casual fighting game fan, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into when reviewing Arc System Works' Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R. As it turns out, this game most certainly belongs in the "hardest of the hardcore" category, with one of the absolute steepest difficulty and learning curves I've experienced - not to mention the game's severe case of SNK Boss Syndrome. After many hours with the game (during which I've still yet to defeat final arcade mode boss Ino - who makes Mortal Kombat's Shao Kahn look fair and balanced), I've come to the conclusion that while this may not be the fairest or most balanced fighter ever, it's certainly fun and challenging, with some of the best music in the genre. (Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, PS Vita) 7.0/10
