Guilty Gear began on the original PS1 and immediately stood out from the deluge of fighters at the time due to it's high-end production values, hard-rock ethos and magnificent character design. I played the original to death and still occasionally break out the old game now and again.
Sadly, I fell off the series' radar after that. I elected to return to Nintendo and hence missed all of the (I'm told excellent) PS2/Xbox installments.
I was overjoyed to find that Guilty Gear was back on a platform I actually owned and I'm equally happy to state that I still love the franchise. XX Accent Core Plus is so smooth and refined, fine-tuned to perfection with brilliant character designs, a great soundtrack and a plethora of game modes.
I own Tatsunoko vs Capcom and if I were to choose between them, Guilty Gear is the fighter to own on Wii - so long as you own a classic controller. I haven't even bothered with the Wiimote/Nunchuck combo, it's just ridiculous.
Accent Core Plus is marginally different to the 2007 Wii release of Accent Core but a story mode is at long last included, along with yet more subtle refinements to the fighting system. I would still recommend a pick up even if you own Accent Core as long as you can find the game at a reasonable price. For fans of the series this one is unmissable as it is the last ever Guilty Gear. Sadly I've read that Blaz Blue on the other consoles has replaced this great series. But what a way to end!
If you love fighters, especially old-school 2D fighters, then this is one of the best you will find. However deduct a star if online play really, really matters to you.
