Start the fight!
This is one of the first games with a graphic HD engine for the sceneries and characters. The game looks good and runs smooth, manga-style 2D artwork is great. Stages are very detailed and the characters are very well defined. There are lots of characters in this title, like Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, Millia Rage, Chipp Zanuff and many others. This PC game continues the gameplay mechanics of the previous installment with kicks, punchs, air combos, fire balls, etc. You are free to fight the CPU or your friends in 1 versus 1 by choosing one of its modes. You just have to press the shift button in your keyboard.
How to play
The story takes place a few weeks after Badguy defeated Justice, Guilty Gear finds another gear rising and, fearing another war, a tournament begins. Fighters will face each other in best out of three matches to show who is best. Now it’s your time to defeat the new rogue and win the first prize.
This game is identical to the first Guilty Gear, with one notable exception: Instant Kill has been minimized since the last game. In the previous title, destruction moves allowed you to end the fight absolutely. Now those moves will give you just one round. You have three bars on screen, one for the energy, one for special attacks and other called “Gauge Meter”. This one checks how much you use your defense. If the player blocks too many hits, the bar fills and causes all hits you take to be considered as counter hits.
Guilty Gear X comes with one new feature which will change the gameplay, called Negative Penalty. When a player constantly escapes from his opponent or just defends, a message shows up in screen. Ignoring this message will cause your special bar to drop.
