However, Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 may be a production that perfectly adapts to the meaning of updating, and although the changes and improvemen
ts made are evident from the second one, we are not facing a major change that can be detected by an outsider to the genre or the franchise. The good news? That the miracle has been done: after years of claiming Arc System Works, the company has decided to sell Rev 2 simultaneously as an independent game and as an expansion, saving good money if you have Revelator in any of the three platforms that premiered.
The decision taken by the editor to accommodate new ways to sell his work seems to have given him wings to put on the shelves one of the shortest extensions that are remembered in the history of the franchise. Beyond the changes made to the characters and the addition
s mentioned in the arcade mode and the fighters who did not have such mode in the previous game, in Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 follows everything practically the same as in Revelator. Put another way: Rev 2 in an expansion dedicated to expanding and leveling the roster of players, updating the game and allowing fans to stay on top of the game.
Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2 fixes some questionable elements of the game system, but unlike in other important updates of the series, does not provide great news. Of course, you still have the elements that have made the series great again after many years of wandering in the two dimensions of XX delivery. The most novel at first glance is in the visual, adding new cameras and
The two main novelties are in the already extensive staff of 25 fighters: Answer and Baiken . The first is a totally new character in the franchise, is the deputy of President Chipp Zanuff, and is a sort of ninja secretary who does not stop consulting your phone duri
ng the battle; the second is one of the most mythical fighters of the game, which debuted in the original PlayStation Guilty Gear in the late nineties. Although many lamented his absence in the original Xrd, the wait has been worthwhile, since the samurai is better than ever.
Guilty Gear has not stopped expanding its universe with dozens of ways since the franchise debuted in the 32 bits, and although the story of Rev 2
is the same as that enjoyed in Revelator, a small conclusion has been added that adds a new datum to the already delirious plot of the series. The fishing system, which allowed you to spend money from the game in exchange for content in the form of images, music or avatars for online, has improved by adding the possibility of buying the extra content separately by paying a little more. Luckily, what you got in Revelator can be recovered in Rev 2, so you will not have to fish again.
Technically rarely has a game like this been seen in 2.5D
As for multiplayer , everything is still as pampered as ever in Arc System Works. Already in BlazBlue Central Fiction I highlighted the great work he did with the lobbies and game rooms, but in Xrd they have decided to improve up to the NetCode of the game. The games with Spaniards barely have a delay of 2 frames, an optimal figure to enjoy online games. Delicious game environment where you can meet other Guilty Gear fans from around the world and enjoy epic battles.
The new Rev 2 seems a bit soulless, right? Do not get me wrong: there are two types of players who will enjoy the game and I think th
Why would it be 9.5? Easy: there is no fight game on PS4, PC or Xbox One that combines such refined playable concepts as Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2. The franchise touched the sky with Accent Core a few years ago, but its developers have been
smart enough to contribute a new way of playing that, despite maintaining the style, opens its spectrum to new players willing to enter the Guilty Gear franchise. Not satisfied with planting 25 incredible characters and reinventing the technical bases of
the series, offers a tutorial that is the envy of the genre: never a developer has shown so much fervor to invite its users to enjoy their game.
In the multiplayer everything is still as pampered as ever in Arc System Works
Amaestrar Xrd is synonymous with having on your console (or computer) one of the best battles that you will live at the controls of a fighting gam
Guilty Gear and music: a marriage of almost 20 yearsJack-O is the name of the pumpkins that are made on Halloween. The name of the Instant Kill of the character? I Want Out, one of the most famous songs of Helloween, group in which its main singe
r was for many years Michael Kiske, who lends the surname to the co-star of the game, Ky Kiske, who takes and adapts the name of the also ex of Helloween Kai Michael Hansen, who was part of the Gamma Ray group, which has given name to one of Dizzy’s movements. Have you found other references to heavy metal and rock groups in Xrd Rev 2? Naturally! The game is full of them!
I understand that the previous statement clashes with the conclusion of the analysis and the final grade, but I think that all the good and necessary to understand the conception of Xrd was already said in the first review of the game in 2015 and that we have limited ourselves here to gut. 2 as an expansion, not as an independent work. That Arc System Works is able to updat
e the content and improve it with each extension is a very good news for followers, but when evaluating an entry as Rev 2 it would have been difficult to understand if, as has been usual in the series so far, we they would have gone through the box to buy the whole game again.
Arc System Works has been modernized, yes, and that’s good for our pocket, but it may not be so much to engineer new content in future installments of the series. And if I say Dust-loop, Isuka, Atomiswave and you know what I mean … Guilty Gear Xrd R
ev 2 is more Guilty Gear XX #Reload than Guilty Gear Accent Core, but like what happened with the premiere of Reload in its day, after trying it , you will not want to go back to XX.
