4.0 out of 5 stars Great beat em up for the ds, 19 May 2008

= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bleach: The Blade of Fate (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
This game follows the plot of episodes 1-63ish of the bleach anime, so if you don't want spoilers, don't buy it.

The game has very simple controls and is really easy to get used to, the impressive moves are all easy to do, thanks to the touch screen. Characters have special/super (shikai and bankai for the soul reapers) moves which they can perform by building up spiritual energy and spiritual pressure, by both attacking and defending.

Auto gaurd is one thing i love about this game, as I am very lazy and never think about defending, it makes it really easy for me to get past the stages with quick attacking charaters.

The graphics are really good for a 2d beat'em up on the ds and the anime story filler bits are nice to look at.

All the origoinal voice cast do the voices for this game and you can unlock the voices by buying them in the urahara shop. While some of the more powerful characters are a lot of fun to fight as (soi fon, ichigo, renji-possibly my favourite, gin, byakuya, yamamoto-all very easy to master) the main non soul reaper characters I dont find as much fun to play as (uryu, orihime, chad)one particularly frustrating thing about uryu is that he's really hard to get the hang of but really hard to beat when you face him! some of the less popular soul reapers are also very hard to get the hang of.

The spirit card aspect of the game is something very new to me, and I have to say I quite like it. It's just the best thing in the world when you are playing as soi fon and you get you meter up to 3, hit you opponent with that butterfly move which escapes my attention, and then you get the max spiritual pressure card and hit them again, killing them instantly! But i can see how this could be annoying if you are the opponent...

on the whole, as a bleach nut I love this game alread, I've only had it 5 days. It's not a really hard core beat'em up, but a bit of fun for bleach fans. I haven't tried it on line yet but I think I will soon!

If you like bleach you should buy this game

4.0 out of 5 stars Best fighter on the DS... For a while, 23 Jun 2008

This review is from: Bleach: The Blade of Fate (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Bleach: The blade of fate for the DS is a very enjoyable Fighting game for a Bleach fan such as myself.

I don't usually play fighting games but this one is very easy to play with 3 difficulties to choose from, 27 characters to choose ( majority of them have to be unlocked ).

Story mode is pretty decent, nearly every character has a story, 23 stories to choose from and new characters are unlocked by completing them.

Other modes include, Arcade Mode, Time attack mode, Survival Mode, Training Mode and Online Wi-fi Battling.

The Wi-fi battling is terrible due to very bad lag, this is not because of connections ( i was playing with a full green bar, as was my opponent) but the online mode lags because of the Cards you use which cause the battle to lag.. So i just avoid online mode and stick to the offline mode.

Fighting is very easy to get used to, You don't have to learn every combo in the game as you can choose the special move you want to use by pressing one of the buttons on the touch screen. This is a very good feature to the game if you keep forgetting the button combinations.

You earn money from most fights in the game and money can be spent in the Urahara shop on many items such as, New voices, New spirit cards, New costume colours for characters, Art pictures and music.

This game is an excellent game for Bleach fans and fighting fans and i think it is a very enjoyable game, But don't expect an amazing online experience but stick to the offline.. its much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best fighting system on the DS, 19 Mar 2009

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bleach: The Blade of Fate (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Im not usually a big fan of fighters. But this game is just awesome. With 28 characters, there are plenty of challenges and battles to keep you entertained. The wonderful fighting system uses many good mechanics, like the fact that you can choose between light atacks, heavy attacks, and medium attacks. You can also use super and special moves (Super Moves require spiritual pressure, Special moves need Spiritual power), like bankai, by using combinations of buttons, or the hot keys on the touch screen. You can also use cards, which either raise your attributes, lower your opponents, or have an effect on all players. You can purchase these, among other extras in the Uruhara Shop. The only problem with this game it that, for such an excellent game, the story mode is far too short.

However, if you want to play WiFI on bleach: Blade of Fate, then maybe you should go with something else, as it's WiFi is laggy.

Overall, if you are a fan of fighters, or just love Bleach , then this is the game for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Bleach fan, 9 Mar 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bleach: The Blade of Fate (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Well, it's Bleach game so of course, it's a must for Bleach fans. The controls are easy and for someone like me who always have trouble remembering all the combination for special moves (which include all shikai and bankai moves), there is the convenient auto mode that you just touch whichever move you want to perform on the touch screen. Then there is the all good flash step.

It says it stays true to the original storyline but because episode 1 is Ichigo-centric, it's actually not THAT true although the backbone of it matches the original Bleach.

You can adjust the difficult setting and if you set it easy to begin with, it's hard to die even on your first play. It gives you chance to get used to controls. Spiritual cards are another that you can use in battles to help you but in admist of all frantic pushing buttons, sometimes the light touch on touch screen doesn't quite reach the character.

But each character has moves that has been aired on the original anime, not to mention kidous as well, like Byakuya's favourite bakudou 61. There are bankai as well for those characters that have already showed them off including Ichigo.

There are 23 episodes in total but except for Ichigo's one, the others are all relatively short. There is no spoiler for any story from Soul Society arc onwards so if you are watching Bounto arc or further ahead, you are safe. Otherwise, I say don't play this game till you finish Soul Society arc 'cuz it'll be major spoiler.

As it progresses, you have to fight against two, three characters at once. Pairs are what you would expect ie Tousen and Komamura/Kyouraku and Ukitake. I haven't played medium/hard difficulty yet but at easy level, it's easy enough to win in auto mode.

The voices are done by English actors, not original Japanese actors. As one who hates English dubbing, the voices made me cringe but it actually had the orignial opening song, Ichirin no Hana, which I thought was nice touch.

I've got Bleach Wii as well and the gameplay system, I think DS is easier (simpler?) than Wii, although it's just my opinion. I liked Wii as well since it's got slightly different play system and moves. Well, if you are a Bleach fan, just getting to play your fav character -and shouting bankai if yours has one- is worth getting this game, I say.

4.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE TOSHIRO, 28 April 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bleach: The Blade of Fate (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Oh my gosh. Everything I expected and more. I'd searched for this game for a while and when I finally got my hands on a copy, I was not dissapointed! I would point any Bleach fans in it's direction as there are episode like parts to the game and then the game it's self. You can play as most charcters from the soul society saga in the anime and their abilities on the game match those from the series including the use of bankai. I love it although it didn't take too long to complete. It did, however, take a while to understand how to set up the vesus mode but when I'd done it once, it was easy. I gave it 4 stars because it could have been better and was over too quickly but it's still a very good game that I still play despite completing it.
