Bust out some fighting moves with the characters from the Bleach anime TV show! Here’s our game review.

The Bleach anime is about Ichigo Kurosaki - a fifteen year-old who can see ghosts and who suddenly becomes a powerful Soul Reaper. Now it's up to him to help ghosts into the next life and battle the gruesome Hollows. He has some help from Rukia, a weakened Soul Reaper who gave him his power, Kon the stuffed lion and other characters too. And, with Bleach: The Blade of Fate for Nintendo DS, you can control 28 of the characters from the anime in 2D battles! Here's Gary's Bleach game review.

What's Going On?

Bleach is a 2D fighting game starring the characters from the anime. You can play a single-player adventure, but the real action is from the insane variety of multiplayer battles you can have with up to four players! You can jump around the multi-level battlefields and pull insane combos, plus there's a card system that lets you power-up your battle.

Soul Reaping Action!

Wow. For starters, it's easy to play, it's also loaded with excellent combos and seriously smart action. Not only is the fighting good, there's lots of it! 28 characters and tons of modes, plus the card system and more multiplayer options than you can shake a giant sword at means you'll be having fun for months with this game. Especially since you only need one copy for your friends to join in!

Soul Sucking Misery

There are only two things to complain about in this game. The first is that the AI can turn around and clobber you with cheesy combos every now and then. The second is that you have to re-download the whole game each time you have a multiplayer battle, even if you just played with the same person!

Wow or Ow?

If you're a Bleach fan you need to quit reading and go get a copy, now. If you aren't a Bleach fan, it's still an incredibly awesome fighting game with tons of options, strategy and characters. It also has downloadable multiplayer so your friends don't even need a copy and internet multiplayer so you can challenge people all over the world. It's packed full of fun and is a seriously sweet game!

Thumbs Up:

  • Easy to play, with lots of combos to master.
  • Lots of characters.
  • Tons of game modes.
  • Hordes of multiplayer options.
  • Thumbs Down:

  • Some stupid combos can mess you up.
  • Re-downloading the game for each multiplayer battle is annoying.
  • Game Rating: 5

    Available for: DS.

    What's Up With This Stuffed Lion?

    • That's Rukia - she put her soul into it after Ichigo absorbed her powers.
    • It's a Hollow that wants to be good!
    • It's a temporary soul that animates Ichigo's body when he's in Shinigami form.
    • It's haunted by the spirit of Ichigo's dad!
