Guilty Gear 2: Overture isn't a 2D fighter. Games Radar's first big look at the game has shown them that the series is going in a totally new direction for GG2, which is now a hybrid between the action and strategy genres. There are still elements of a fighting game, but it's not what they expected. You control one of six heroes with the ability to deploy servant units while zooming around the battlefield in real-time and helping your growing (or shrinking) army fight your opponent.
There's still a flair for using fantastically powerful attacks, summoning fierce behemoths but still throwing in oddballs - like the banana peel traps - in the same way the GG series has always done. The fast style and myriad of attacks makes the game an assault of awesome on the eyes.
