Sans doute un des meilleurs jeu de combat du PS1. Guilty Gear est un compétiteur sérieux pour les pionniers du domaine tels Capcom et SNK. Bons effets visuels en bonne soundtrack. Les améliorations à porter au niveau du son, possiblement au niveau de la sélection de personnages et des modes de jeu. La série Guilty Gear est à recommander à tout ceux qui ont déjà eu ne serais-ce qu'un minimum d'intérêt pour les jeux de combats. Même si j'suis prêt à dire que la trame sonore à elle seule vaut le détour, en général, premier titre de la série sera plutôt convoité par le gamer hardcore.

If 2D beat-em-ups are moving toward extinction, they really are ending on a high note with stuff like this. 3D really just doesn't have that same old-skool feel when it comes to beat-em-ups. Still, if I wanted something to remember the genre by, Guilty Gear's just as good an example as anything, creating a less-than-subtle blend of Street Fighter Alpha, 20 cups of coffee and a class-A drug. The visual effects are astoundingly fluid, the controls wonderfully responsive and the overall experience pleasurable. I shall come again.

Une réussite qui vient enfin proposer une alternative valable à l’hégémonie de Capcom dans le domaine du jeu en 2D. L’action est omniprésente et on arrête que quand les ampoules au bout des doigts commencent à se faire trop sentir :).

Guilty Gear may fall just short of the greats but it's still deserving of classic status. It's a wonder that such an excellent game came virtually out of nowhere. If you consider yourself a fighting connoisseur, it comes highly recommended. No true fan of the genre should be without a copy.

To summarize the Guilty Gear experience is to look to the best parts of other four-star fighting games. Fast, furious action, with truly awesome characters and moves worthy of the Darkstalkers series, Guilty Gear is one of the few non-Capcom or SNK 2D fighters to make any sort of impact on the genre. If you like 2D fighters with a little flair, GG comes highly recommended. With its excellent gameplay, surprisingly good graphics, secret characters, and kick-ass aural experience, Guilty Gear (minus some spit and polish) is as good as it gets.

Ce jeu de baston 2D était déjà sorti il y a quelques temps en import. Une sortie officielle un peu tardive donc, et en simultané avec Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Ce dernier est un poil meilleur tant au niveau des graphismes que pour l'intérêt de jeu.

En cualquier caso, Guilty Gear es un gran juego de lucha 2D que puede ofrecer muy buenos momentos tanto en solitario como acompañado por un segundo jugador en el modo “Versus”. Además, los fans del heavy metal disfrutarán con la cantidad de guiños a canciones o grupos que inundan el juego (que os invitamos a descubrir por vosotros mismos). No está a la altura de Street Fighter Alpha 3, pero es una opción para tener en cuenta, con pocos fallos pero muchas virtudes.

Guilty Gear has some interesting original features, like special moves listed on the load screens (great idea), health meters that "peel off" layers (not so great), and eye-popping "instant" kills (ouch!). I like how this game retains its original Japanese voice samples, but that grinding guitar background music has got to go. I was also disappointed that high scores and rankings are not saved to memory card. Still, Guilty Gear is fun to play, and 2D die-hards will certainly want this in their collection.

Dans le cas de GG, nous avons un soft de combat en 2D rapide, violent, et présentant des personnages originaux. Mais nous découvrons aussi un jeu avec peu de combattants, des décors laids et une technique de combat qui, même si elle présente certaines originalités, n'en demeure pas moins répétitive.

Sub-standard 2D beat 'em up that doesn't come close to the Street Fighter series. Just don't bother.
