Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator
Top Critic Average
This is the best Guilty Gear title in the series, hands down. If you're new to the franchise, this is the perfect game to start from. If you're a longtime fan, this should be a no-brainer.
Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator is the best fighter of 2016, and with Injustice 2 being released not even in the next six months, I'm pretty certain it will keep that title. It's attention to detail is refreshing, it's models inventive, and it's gameplay hooking and enormous in depth. It's hard to think that fighters can get any better than this, but Guilty Gear continuously sets the bar.
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.
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.
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.

The biggest issue with Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- is that it is so similar to -SIGN-. We have some new characters and a new narrative, which is always a great thing. However, the core engine and gameplay are almost identical. This makes this latest game in the series feel more akin to an iterative upgrade than a true sequel. As a full priced game, that could prove a difficult pill to swallow for those who already own -SIGN-. As a result, your mileage may vary. That being said, on its own merits, Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- is a fantastic game and one of the best fighters I have ever played and absolutely worth a look if you get the chance.
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 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.
Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- offers up a wonderfully entertaining, complex game, and the addition of stylish mode makes it the perfect starting point for those looking get into Guilty Gear. It's addictive, frenetic, and varied, not to mention absolutely stunning. If you already own Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, you may have to take a harder look at this improved package, but for everyone else, this is one of the very best fighters on the market.
Guilty Gear Xrd is continuing to stand out as the game that deserves to bask in the spotlight.
