Guilty Gear Strive proves there’s still some fight left in 2D gaming. Between the gorgeous visuals, rocking soundtrack and highly-polished gameplay, Guilty Gear Strive delivers the total package when it comes to making a great fighting game and is one of the best modern 2D fighters. A lot of care went into making this a contender for gaining a strong online presence, but the developers also didn’t skimp on single player content.

Guilty Gear Strive is an overall excellent package with a few bumps, but nothing to derail it off the tracks. Many consider this the first true next gen fighting game for the 9th generation of consoles. By all accounts then, things are off to a fantastic start.

If I was looking for an on-ramp to understanding Guilty Gear or even one-on-one anime fighters, this is the game to do it with; and what’s here looks ready to act as a platform for more to come, as there will no doubt be balance changes and new characters to come. I can lament what it might be missing, but Guilty Gear Strive is also what I needed right now: a good, solid, very online-capable fighting game with plenty of big swords, charging dolphins, and doctors with questionable credentials to go around.

Guilty Gear -Strive- is an intense experience that should ultimately exceed the expectations of veteran players. For those curious about this franchise and are looking for a great way in, there's no better time to do so than now as the fighter is more welcoming than ever.

Guilty Gear Strive is a milestone 2D fighting game that raises the bar for anime-like fighters in terms of its visuals, online netcode, and sheer creativity found in all aspects of its design. It’s definitely a different flavor of Guilty Gear, with a heavier focus on fighting in the neutral and a slightly slowed down pace, but it maintains the series soul with absolutely wild character designs, flexible combo system, and a level of creativity both in its presentation and mechanics that is second to none in the genre.
Mike EpsteinJun 11, 2021
The fighting in Guilty Gear Strive, though, is impeccable. And that's what matters most. Like all Guilty Gears, it is a game of extremes. If you've tried the series and fallen off because of its complexities, I wouldn't expect a different outcome. If you're up for a challenge, or just want a cool, sharp-looking fighting game to mess around with, Strive knows all the right moves.

Accessibility and style are both Guilty Gear -Strive-'s strongest suits but some baffling omissions and online problems keep Arc System Works' latest from entering the pantheon of elite fighters.
Eric HallidayJun 15, 2021
Despite some delayed modes and some missing features, Guilty Gear Strive is still a masterful fighting game filled with brilliant moves, perfect controls and some of the greatest art I’ve ever seen in a fighting game. All it takes is watching one fight in this game and you’ll need to own it. That’s how it was with me.
Michael BreienJun 16, 2021
To conclude, Guilty Gear Strive is an excellent, genre-defining fighting game experience barred by some weird development decisions and technical issues. All issues we can expect to be solved by the developers within the coming weeks or months. As it stands, Strive is a must-play for fans of the genre, and a better introduction for newcomers than even Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Guilty Gear -Strive- is a superb entry in the 2D Fighter genre, and has the looks, sounds, and stability to back the claim. While smaller compared to other titles, the initial roster of fifteen fighters feels distinct, and most picks have a fitting theme to complement their personality and playstyle. The Story Mode does a great job showcasing who these characters are, while providing a good narrative to boot - and while the act of getting matched with other players can be a pain, the online play experience is incredibly solid. Let's rock!
Sean SmithJun 09, 2021
Guilty Gear Strive is a real triumph for Arc System Works, fast becoming the gold standard of the genre, and it is going to be extremely fun to see how it plays out in coming months.
Ronald GoncalvesJun 08, 2021
Haciendo de su maestría una costumbre, Arc System Works afianza aún más el valor y relevancia de su saga insigne a través de un Guilty Gear -Strive- que se alza como una adquisición imprescindible para todos los fanáticos del género de lucha. En su rol de perfeccionar el afamado estilo que ha caracterizado a la franquicia, esta nueva iteración cumple a cabalidad con lo encomendado y se perfila a convertirse en uno de los títulos más disfrutables de todo el año actual.
David OñaJun 08, 2021
Guilty Gear Strive viene a realizar una llamada, un grito de guerra que persigue reunir a más luchadores en torno a una entrega que no teme reformular ciertos aspectos, mientras mantiene su particular esencia. Sigue poniendo el estilo por bandera y utilizándolo para atrapar al jugador y retenerlo a base de un plantel de luchadores interesante que se presta a repartir combos de lo más satisfactorios. Un imprescindible para los amantes de la lucha.
Fernando SalinasJul 03, 2021
Guilty Gear -Strive- es un juego de calidad que va por muy buen camino, a pesar de sus problemas. Esperemos que en actualizaciones a corto plazo mejoren sus servidores para tener una mejor experiencia de juego.
Salva FernándezJun 08, 2021
Guilty Gear Strive es un reinicio para la saga, con lo bueno y malo que eso supondrá para nuevos jugadores y para veteranos, pero también un punto de inflexión para el género. Hablando de lo primero, el título llega simplificando algunas mecánicas y olvidándose de otras, algo que generará dudas entre los veteranos de la serie, pero a la vez manteniendo ciertas características y apoyándose en un Roman Cancel repleto de opciones, así como la inclusión del nuevo Wall Break y su importante papel en el desarrollo de los combates.
Matthias SchmidJun 23, 2021
In puncto Grafik und Präsentation toppt -Strive- alles bisher dagewesene - das gilt sowohl für das optisch famose Arc-System-Portfolio als auch für die komplette Genre-Konkurrenz. Die englischen Stimmen sind stark, die Charaktere cool, angenehm japanisch und flippig obendrein.

Guilty Gear -STRIVE- est un bon jeu de combat, qui est un plaisir en ligne grâce à son excellent netcode. On retrouve l’ambiance propre à la série, avec des nouveaux personnages très réussis. Cependant, il est difficile de comprendre la vision de l’accessibilité pour Arc System Works, qui rend les choses à la fois plus simples et d'autres fois plus complexes en fonction des situations.
Pa Ming ChiuJun 27, 2021
Guilty Gear Strive cherche l’accessibilité et la trouve, ce qui pourra décevoir certains fans parmi les plus hardcore. Il reste quelques mois pour éprouver le jeu mais une fois de plus le gameplay est solide et c’est le principal.
Aligi ComandiniJun 08, 2021
Messe in conto le sue attuali mancanze è dunque impossibile non premiarlo, anche perché gli Arc System sembrano volerlo aggiornare con frequenza, e crediamo abbia la concreta possibilità di diventare uno dei loro migliori giochi di sempre. Già adesso, comunque, merita un posto piuttosto alto nella lista.
Silvio MazzitelliJun 08, 2021
Guilty Gear Strive riesce nel suo intento di proporre un titolo maggiormente accessibile ai neofiti, mantenendo però un sistema di combattimento molto stratificato e ricco di opzioni per ogni tipo di giocatore. Visivamente curatissimo e con una colonna sonora potente ed evocativa, il nuovo picchiaduro di Arc System Works sembra, a ogni scontro, un anime in movimento.
Samet Basri TaşlıJun 10, 2021
Harika müzikler, alışması kolay oynanış, neredeyse 4 saati bulan film gibi hikayesi ve mükemmel çevrimiçi dövüş sistemi ile Guilty Gear -STRIVE- herkese önerebileceğim bir oyun.
محمد زمانیJun 21, 2021
سرنوشتتان در هر راند بازی بهشت یا جهنم (پیروزی یا شکست) باشد، Guilty Gear Strive به هر حال شما را به‌شدت سرگرم می‌کند و این یکی از بهترین چیزهایی است که یک بازی مبارزه‌ای می‌تواند انجام دهد. ساخته‌ی جدید «آرک سیستم ورکس» علاوه بر اینکه تجربه‌ی لذت‌بخش مجموعه بازی «گیلتی گیر» را به‌سوی تکامل برده است، این توانایی را دارد تا راه ورود بسیاری از افراد را به دنیای فوق‌العاده‌ی این بازی مبارزه‌ای هموار کند. Guilty Gear Strive یک بازی مبارزه‌ای تمام‌عیار است که می‌تواند بسیاری از علاقه‌مندان به این ژانر را مدت‌ها مشغول خود کند.

Guilty Gear Strive je rozhodne najambicióznejším dielom série, ktorý môže byť pre mnohých ideálnou vstupnou bránou do šialených súbojov v štýle anime a metalu. Aj keď príbeh je už po toľkých dieloch komplikovaný, hra ponúka rozsiahlu knižnicu, časovú os a diagramy spojení všetkých postáv, ktoré vám načrtnú túto epickú ságu. Hra vám to však nijako nevnucuje a do zápasov sa dostanete rýchlejšie, ako by ste čakali.
Παναγιώτης ΠετρόπουλοςJun 09, 2021
Το Guilty Gear Strive είναι ο καλύτερος διάδοχος που θα μπορούσε να ζητήσει κανείς. Πρόκειται για μια αλήθεια που αποτελεί σπουδαίο επίτευγμα για ένα επί χρόνια αξιοσέβαστο franchise που το μόνο στο οποίο χάνει έδαφος είναι η δημοτικότητά του. Οι μάχες του είναι εκπληκτικές, τα animations εντυπωσιακά και η μουσική του θα κολλήσει στο νου από το πρώτο κιόλας παιχνίδι.
