About This Game

A new Gear arises, its name Leopaldon. As they threaten to lay waste to the world, you prepare to mount your offense. The good news? You won't have to face them alone.

Guilty Gear Isuka introduces the brand new mechanic of cooperative gameplay to the tried and true fighting madness of the Guilty Gear XX series. With support for up to four local players (either on teams or as lone wolves), Guilty Gear has never seen more hectic action.

Key Features

  • A Cast of Misfits - The colorful characters of Guilty Gear XX #Reload return for an encore, and are joined by newcomers A.B.A and Robo-Ky Mk. II! On top of the 23 characters available by default, who knows if there are even more waiting to be uncovered...
  • Beat-Em-Up Action - Isuka goes from fighter to brawler when you dive into GG Boost Mode. Punch/kick/cut/grapple your way through waves of formidable opponents, and feel free to invite a friend to help; two-player co-op can give you that extra edge you need.
  • Make an Abomination - Newcomer Robo-Ky Mk. II can be retrofitted with the moves of other characters, making him the ultimate doppelganger. Brutal command grabs, a projectile or two, almost nothing is verboten when it comes to the murderous art of imitation.
  • Beautiful Characters and Environments - From the tiniest bounty hunter to the largest brute, from sunny beaches to moonlit cemetaries, Guilty Gear Isuka's sprite art oozes character.
  • Jaw-Dropping Heavy Metal Soundtrack - From the mind and frets of Guilty Gear creator Daisuke Ishiwatari comes some of the most intense rock you'll ever roman cancel to. Buyers of Guilty Gear Isuka on Steam will receive a digital copy of the Official Soundtrack for free!

Guilty Gear Isuka is... difficult to recommend. On one hand, Guilty Gear will always be a great fighting game even with a few detriments, and the soundtrack is arguably worth the price alone. On the other, besides the unique soundtrack, this particular version of Guilty Gear is pretty much pointless to have now that there are others on Steam. It's really just Guilty Gear, with a more novel than truly enjoyable four-player gimmick (that I will admit I never played with four people) that's bogged down by a flawed (though necessary) change, namely the need to press a button to turn around. There is a beat-'em-up styled mode along with it, but again, it feels more novel than fun, never really feeling fleshed out to something good. Even the new characters aren't worth it alone, with A.B.A. being in a standard Guilty Gear game now, and Robo Ky Mk. 2 feeling more like a gimmick than a character. The included soundtrack isn't even the full one, missing songs like A.B.A.'s theme (which is my favorite track, so that's a downer). I just can't recommend it unless you really want all the Guilty Gears on Steam, you don't mind an incomplete soundtrack, and it's on a decent sale. Otherwise, go with one of the X2s that are available, or Xrd -SIGN- now that it's here too.

Pros
+The idea of a fighting 2D party game is nice with two different planes to fight and up to 4 players can brawl with each other
+Boost mode GG is a beat em up mini game
+Factory mode lets you customize character colors
+Arcade mode lets you enjoy challenging fights against solo opponents or team opponents
+Great cast of characters to play as
+The ability to customize your game's setting with its own separate configuration tool - lets you customize controller button placement as well and some limited visual settings
+Great OST

Cons
-No Story mode at all
-The changing planes mechanic can make the game an annoying cat and mouse type of disaster
-Due to the fact that they added two planes - they had to add a button that lets you turn around - this causes a difficulty spike to occur due to how different it makes the gameplay compared to other guilty gear games.
-Boost Mode GG has harsh difficulty in terms of the boss fights - bosses fight exactly like they do in arcade mode NPCs however the fact that you lose the ability to jump puts you against a unfair handicap
-Lack of graphic options make the game seem like you are playing it on a 1990s or early 2000 PC
-Lack of Online Multiplayer Option

Terrible straight PS port, no PC options, game menus map to PS controllers, no effort whatsoever was put into porting this game to PC.

Not sure why they released Isuka instead of, say, XX reloaded or even Acent Core. Why in gods name did they make a button to change the way you face? Perhaps if they just had a button to cycle through intended target rather than changing directions. Even the 1on1 matches are more difficult because of this bad design.

This game DOES have local multiplayer, which is misleading in steams classification, but NO online multiplayer. Also the graphics look very choppy on this port. Best thing about this game is the sound track.

*Edit* Looks like steam updated it to LOCAL CO-OP, which is misleading since there is also versus. local multiplayer would have been better used.
