Ultimate battle action!

Using the previous installation, "GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE CORE" as the base, players can perform "Gatling combos" by simply pressing attack buttons in sequence; or launch their opponents into mid-air with the overhead "Dust" attack; or cancelling their character's current motion to allow for more follow-ups with the "Roman Cancel"; keeping everything that makes a GUILTY GEAR game, while fine-tuning everything to reach optimal balance!

Full 25 characters cast!

Accent Core Plus marks the return of fan favorites Kliff Undersn and Justice, rounding out the cast of 25 playable characters. And in the latest Plus R version, they have been fine-tuned for more competitive play!

Refined skills, polished strategies

The entire cast have their core concepts revised and re-evaluated; balances are in place to bring out the most variation among the cast, with the ultimate aim to liven up the heat of every battle!

People , this is the definitive version of 2D Guilty Gear , before the arrival of Overture and Xrd.

Cheap and reliable , i advice to try if you're fond of 2d fighting games : This is a diamond you have to try at least one time.

All the qualities of a AWS game is here : Charismatic characters , lots of mode (the solo isn't forgotten) , epic bgm...
So i definitly advice to try this game before other ASW games , just to discover a particular type of fighting game easy to learn-hard to master, where the lore and universe isn't forgotten : The ASW fighting.

Guilty Gear XX accent core plus R is the definitive Guilty Gear Experience. Highly Balanced Gameplay, great visuals, tons of content and the largest roster of playabel Fighters in the series. Its fast its fluid its fighting at its greatest whats not to love. Now if we could just get Guilty gear xrd, Blazblue chronophantasma extend, and Persona 4 arena ultimax on steam aswell.

There's no Quit Game option in the menu.

But then again, why would you need one?

One of, if not, the most technically complex and refined air-dashers ever made.
Good visuals and runs on toaster.
Huge roster, alternative versions of characters, story mode and tons of unlockables.
Metal music and 90s anime artstyle.
Highly recommended.
The only downside is wishy washy netcode, so you can only bet on playing with people geographically close to you.

While I do recommend this game, I cannot recommend it to anyone who
A) does not already play fighting games
or
B) is not prepared to spend a bunch of hours learning why GGXX (and beyond) is one of the best fighters ever!

Why?
Because it offers more freedom of choice than other fighters.
How?
For instance, in most fighting games, you're (rightfully) quite screwed if you do a bad jump. In Guilty Gear you don't stop thinking at the jump. Will the jumping character attack, air-block (or air-instant block, a sort of semi-parry) any ground normals, spend meter for blocking anti-air specials, double-jump, air-dash forward/backwards? (Not counting character specific stuff as triple jumping etc.)

The character (mechanics) design is quite extreme too, since almost every character has one or more exception from the standard game mechanics, like: triple jump, double air dash, parry, delayed wakeup on sweep, not being able to dash, being able to level up specials and supers, having a heat gauge that allows for more damaging normals but also running the risk of over-heating unless venting steam (yeah, really) and more...


Of course, my recommendation is quite biased:
I was a casual arcade game scrub since the start of the 1990s and took a liking for 2D fighting games. When I came across the console version of Guilty Gear XX #R and more importantly, people who played it seriously, GG almost became more than a game to me.

I played the game with my friends for hours on a daily basis. I went to tournaments, domestic as well as abroad. This was before there were any real prize money to speak of, meaning that VERY few (if anyone) would actually have their expenses covered. Still, I have zero regret for the time and money I have spent playing this game!

Finally this game comes out for steam.

I don't know how many times i dipped my chips to this game... But still got it, since its a really good fighting game...

This is the lastest version of GGXXAC series, but not GGXRD. Though its usually good news when more Japanese publishers pour games into steam!

The steam version though is pretty much like playing on PSN, 4:3 format with the 2 bars on both sides of the screen.
Not much on graphical changes since this game was on PS2 but the GGXXAC+R has its changes from the last update. It does change the game quite a bit. Brings back good memories at the arcade. SP plays just fine, MP is a lagfest but didn't expect MP to be great anyway (My expectation from PSN for MP wasn't great to begin with). Hopefully games like GGXRD will fix that... right???

Any way, I'd recommend this game for hard core fighting game fans and if you like Blazblue series, you'll like this diverse game.

If you're into SF Series, give it a try, it may surprise you. A friendly reminder, all the characters are different. Watch out for the yoyo guy. Yep i said it.

This review is from the standpoint of a competitive player already familiar with the game, intended for those who are also familiar with the game, but unsure about the quality of the port.

Pros
  • Offline gameplay is smooth and runs at full-speed easily.
  • Mechanically identical to the most recent arcade and console releases.
  • AC+R mode is toggled on by default. If you want to go back in time, switch to AC mode in the Game Options menu.
  • Adds arcade-only sidebars!
  • Dev team seems committed, some issues already patched out in the first 24 hours.
  • Self-published, adds a glimmer of hope for future releases.
  • Controllers and arcade sticks recognized by default, and full keyboard bindings are available as well as a separate menu.
  • Netplay allows inviting via Steam friends list.

Cons
  • Connections always read as 4-bars, and delay is significant across the board. Connections that were acceptable on PS3 are slower here. (Upside: connections are significantly smoother, no bursts of delay. Hopefully the standard delay is fixable.)
  • Not much in the way of resolution support, and playing in fullscreen has issues. (If your monitor is >60Hz, the game will read 60fps but run faster. Fullscreen also seems to add additional input delay.)
  • Windowed by default, and resolution options are limited. (Default is 1280x720, native res, good enough imo.)
  • Game reads controllers, but assigns buttons incorrectly - though prompts will read "B" to cancel, you need to press "X", for example.
  • Windows decides who is Player 1 and who is Player 2 - the game does not ask you to select a side when you start. This also leads to issues like Windows treating you as Player 2, forcing you to bind keys for that side, while netplay only uses Player 1's binds. Only a serious issue re: netplay, since every offline mode works fine as 2P.
  • Tabbing back into the game if it wasn't on top causes brief (1-2s) slowdown.

Summary
It's AC+R on PC. As things stand now, it's only good for offline play, but netplay stands a decent chance of getting fixed. Keep your expectations realistic (we won't be seeing GGPO, for example) and it's absolutely worth a purchase.

In fighting games, the trend has always been that a game's released, the game isn't well-balanced or very fun to play in-depth due to the unpredictable nature of meta-game evolution and a lack of understanding of the systems that were being implemented in the original release, and so the game receives update after update, refining it and adding new characters and concepts built with the understanding gained from previous releases. The updates each do worse commercially than the last, because refined things aren't as sexy as brand new things. It's hard to sell people on a better version of a thing they already have. So eventually, the carefully polished game is pushed aside for a brand new one, full of imperfections but fresh visuals and ideas.

Those final versions of those games, however, tend to remain loved by a cult following. After all, they're the result of years and years of player feedback. Sometimes close to a decade of it. Fighting games like Super Turbo, 3rd Strike, The King of Fighters '98. They're all final love letters to their most loyal fans before their respective series ventured off into brave new directions.

Accent Core Plus R is that love letter for fans of Guilty Gear XX, and it's written so well that it's hard for newcomers not to swoon over it, too. It's a game literally ten years in the making. With the exception of newcomers Kliff and Justice (who had previously been included as bonus console characters with no consideration for balance), the characters as they're represented in Plus R are based on years and years of player feedback. When Xrd was released later, it turned back the clock on its returning characters in an attempt to simplify them and not overwhelm players. As Xrd continues to see updates, that'll change. But for now, most of the Guilty Gear characters' Plus R iterations are the most interesting and fun they've ever been.

That said, there are definitely problems with this package. Getting the game to run without heavy input delay requires some fiddling with settings, both in-game and via NVIDIA Inspector (though you could get away with only adjusting the in-game settings). Additionally, the netcode is bad, and makes playing online both a chore and, often, a much, much less pleasant experience than playing someone offline. Lobbies are limited to two players at a time, and there are no replays, either. Meaning there's no way to watch others play, and potentially learn from them.

Still, though. Plus R is the most fun fighting game I've ever played, and is fun enough for me to happily put up with those shortcomings. The game's an absolute joy, and if you've got people to play it with locally, then you absolutely have to at least try it. If all you've got is online play, I'd still encourage you to give it a chance! There are Steam and Discord groups specifically for trying to find opponents with good connections!
