Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator Reviews
When all is said and done, Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- is a great addition to Steam's stable of fighting games.
In many ways, Revelator can be seen as the definitive version of Guilty Gear Xrd. Packing in more characters, more stages, more modes, and more unlockables, this is what -SIGN- should have originally been. Though it is a shame that this is a standalone release rather than a downloadable upgrade, the sheer amount of content available more than makes up for it.
Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- is one of these pieces of software that, although its level of quality is worthy of applause, as a product alone, is almost "offensive" towards consumers. To summarise, this is a great fighter… but approach only if you haven't spent any money on the previous instalment, since it's almost the same deal… Not to mention that half of its newly added roster is hidden behind a pretty high price tag.
I think the PC version of Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator is great and Revelator is still the definitive version of Xrd. However a few issues like the online mode not being to snuff and the lack of any noticeable improvements over the PS4 version make it hard to recommend at it's current price of $49.99 or $45 if you own Xrd on Steam.
Heaven or hell? Heaven all the way
As a fighting game fan, having new systems to learn has been great fun and the design of the characters and the world is instantly enjoyable if you like Japanese fighting games and/or anime. With the detailed tutorial and introduction of the Stylish control mode, it's far more approachable for new players, but the complexity of the story and how little it does to help people jump on quickly may rub people the wrong way.
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator ist sicherlich eines der originellsten Beat em Ups der letzten Jahre. Der Stil, die Story und vor allem die Charaktere stechen wirklich heraus und das alles kombiniert mit schnellem, gut ausgeglichenem Gameplay sorgt für ein grandioses Prügelspiel. Schade ist nur, dass 3 der neuen Charaktere, die sich auf den Cover des Spieles befinden und ein wesentlicher Bestandteil des Marketings sind, DLC sind, von denen ihr nur einen im Shop mit ingame Geld kaufen könnt und einer noch gar nicht veröffentlicht ist.

Guilty Gear Xrd –Revelator- makes some amazing innovations in tutorials, lobbies, modes, and new characters that no one will notice because there simply isn't enough here to warrant purchasing the game again at full price. It's a shame, too, because many fighting games can learn from its exhaustive teaching tools.
Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator will have zero complaints from new and experienced players, but Xrd Sign players who are less bothered about roster updates will find less to enjoy.
Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator is a fantastic fighting package offering lots to love for both series fans and newcomers alike. This is a flashy, modern fighter which boasts both gameplay depth and an anachronistic punk aesthetic.
Guilty Gear Xrd: -Revelator- is a nostalgic look back on the golden age of fighting games that also manages to wrangle a ton of modern digital beauty and function into the mix. The result is a top notch fighting title that begs to be mastered. That mastery will not be an easy ride, but with the gorgeous design, heavy music, and plenty of fun, it will be easy to overlook the very frustrating, but minor control issues. Lay off the junk, and run to the sexy rock- and- roll violence of Guilty Gear Xrd: -Revelator- instead.
Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- is available now for the PS3 and PS4. It was developed by Ark System Works and Published by Aksys Games. The review covers the PS4 version of the game.
Guilty Gear XRD Revelator feels more like an expansion than a legitimate sequel, but this isn't a bad thing, as the fighting is still highly engaging and the numerous teaching materials allow newer players to get up to speed nicely. No English dub after Sign's decent dub is a bit of a black mark, but if you're not bothered by fighters in an anime style, Guilty Gear XRD Revelator is the best of the bunch.
Rounding it all out, Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- adds enough new content to appeal to both hardcore and casual fighting game fans alike. Although the game isn't as much an evolution of the franchise as Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- was at its release, it's still more than easy enough to recommend.
It's an absolute joy to play and one that I believe will stand head and shoulders above the rest of the anime fighting game crowd for some time to come.
An excellent fighting game no matter how you slice it complete with superbly detailed yet very accessible and inviting training modes that can take you from total newcomer to master if you put the time into it. Fighting fans can't miss this one.
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator may not be a huge step up from Sign but it does enough to make it a must-own 2D fighter.
Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- is easily the king of fighting games released up to this point, at least in this generation. It's not only accessible for new players but keeps the hardcore players satisfied as well. Arc System Works has outdone themselves with their fantastic art and animations. The additions of new and old characters are welcome to the already vast and unique lineup of fighters and it's awesome and daring story mode is what makes -REVELATOR- my favorite fighting game to come along this generation.
Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- is a fantastic looking game and definitely a joy to play. Featuring an intriguing and deep story, complex battle mechanics and now a stylish mode that caters to newcomers making -REVELATOR- a great title to pick up for new and old fans alike.
The important bit, the actual combat, is where Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator genuinely shines
