Guilty Gear -Strive- Review

As an outsider looking in, the Guilty Gear franchise was historically defined by three things:

  • Incredible anime art style
  • Rocking soundtrack
  • Gameplay mechanics so complex you needed a Ph. D. just to be competent

While the franchise’s core audience love it for those reasons, my limited time playing Guilty Gear Xrd was a real struggle. Even with my prior experience in other fighting games at a competitive level, its layers of gameplay systems and character-specific systems immediately overwhelmed me.

Complexity doesn’t necessarily make Guilty Gear bad. In fact, with fighting game design as a whole moving towards a more streamlined approach, Guilty Gear was one of the last bastions for 2D fighters with that level of depth.

The Guilty Gear -Strive- Beta Is a Mess, But One Aspect of the Experience Deserves Rave Reviews

During the last Guilty Gear -Strive- beta, I flagged a number of major complaints with the game’s online experience.

  1. The beta was wildly unstable. Outages happened for hours at a time, leaving many anxious fans out in the cold.
  2. The Habbo Hotel inspired lobby system was an absolutely horrible way of connecting with other players.
  3. Combat was driven by inferior delay-based netcode. Fights suffered from inputs getting delayed, which compromised the integrity of battle.

This time around, things are…different.

  1. The beta is again, wildly unstable. Arc System Works extended the beta to compensate for lost time.
  2. Despite overwhelming negative feedback from the community regarding the Hobbo Hotel style lobby system, Arc System Works kept it in the game. At least you can matchmake through training mode in the beta.
  3. Delay-based netcode was replaced with rollback netcode. And…
