Bleach: Soul Resurreccion



Based on the popular manga/anime series, Bleach: Soul Resurrección depicts the battle between the Soul Reapers and the army of evil Arrancars that threaten the peace of the world. Bleach: Soul Resurrección gives players the sensation of single-handedly destroying an army of monsters and evil spirits with lightning-fast swordfighting action. Gamers can re-live the experiences of various characters from the anime by closely following the original story. The environments are faithfully reproduced with beautiful cel-shaded 3D models that will satisfy even the most devoted fans. Bleach: Soul Resurrección will give gamers an unparalleled anime action game experience.
 I had fun with Soul Resurreccion for plenty of reasons. The combat initially looks easy because most basic combos can be executed by mashing the Square button. There's a lot more to it, though. With good timing, you can power up a normal combo. This gives you an incentive to do more than just pummel the same button for hours. Each character also has a bunch of special attacks that can be mixed into normal combos.

The subtleties of combat were clear to me after I spent a while experimenting with different techniques. With Ichigo I started by launching a few Spirit Attacks -- which send arcs of energy tearing across the screen -- and then transitioned into a basic combo. At the end of the basic combo, I launched my opponent up into the air, unleashed a few more basic attacks, and finished with a Super Move. 















It's not the most complex battle system out there, but Bleach: Soul Resurreccion gives you lots to do in the heat of combat. But beware, your enemies do fight back -- especially at higher difficulty levels. You'll need to keep your guard up at the right times, dash away from danger, and even counter attacks when you have access to the ability. It's an engaging system and it facilitates the process of collecting Soul Points.

Yes, Soul Points are the sweet, sweet candy of Bleach: Soul Resurreccion. They're green, they glow, and you don't even have to run around to pick them up -- they come to you when you defeat an enemy or destroy an object in the environment. Not only is it super fun to collect things, but Soul Points act as your currency for purchasing character upgrades. With enough Soul Points you can enhance your character and learn new techniques thanks to a stylish board similar to the Sphere Grid in Final Fantasy X (Anybody?).  


Soul Points give combat purpose, and you're rewarded for keeping up a combo with a Soul Points multiplier. This adds a degree of pressure to an already frantic, effects-heavy experience.

If the combat wasn't as rewarding, Bleach: Soul Resurreccion would be a sad story. The mission structure is formulaic and rarely deviates from "go forward, kill bad guys, beat the boss." The extra missions provide challenging restraints to work around, but for the most part Bleach: Soul Resurreccion is a repetitive game. I had fun with the activities I kept repeating, but it definitely runs the risk of getting old.

Speaking of repetitive, let's talk about the environments. There are only three background types in the whole story, so even though the stage layout changes, the scenery does not. It gets boring, and pales in comprising to the stylish characters and animation.

Lastly, if you're not already familiar with the story of Bleach, don't expect to follow this. There are more names tossed around in the opening narration than you'd find in an actual book of baby names. Chapters blur together, gloss over massive amounts of material, and don't do much besides contextualize the mayhem.
