Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R is the next installment of the well-known series of two-dimensional beats, created in the Japanese studio Arc Sytem Works, which has been specializing in this genre for years. The title is a direct port of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus, enriched with corrections balancing the gameplay and strength of individual warriors. Accent Core Plus is an extended version of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core, which appeared on Wii and PlayStation 2 in 2007.
The basics of the Guilty Gear gameplay model are easy to master, even for those who have not had to deal with battles before. It is worth noting, however, that achieving the championship may take many months of hard work. Each of the many different characters has a wealth of movements and special attacks. Their execution often requires not only memorizing complex combinations of buttons, but also reflex, because actions can be easily interrupted or contrasted by the opponent.
We can fight against both the other person and the opponents controlled by the AI. The basic mode of the game is the standard Arcade, in which we stand for a series of duels with subsequent characters, getting to know their motivation and plot prepared by the creators. However, our knowledge of the world of Guilty Gear will be expanded mainly due to the new feature mode, which is the most important novelty in the Accent Core Plus version.
Players can also use the VS CPU mode, where we choose our opponent's character controlled by AI and set the rules and number of fights, as well as two endurance modes: M.O.M and Survival. In the first one, players collect medals/points, which they receive for leading them to the opponent's successful blows. In the second, we fight against the endless wave of ever stronger and more demanding opponents, with one health belt. So the more we beat our opponents and the longer we stay alive, the better our final result will be. Survival mode has been improved compared to the previous version by introducing the possibility of gaining experience levels. Finally, it is worth mentioning the training option, thanks to which we will test the game with individual characters. If we want to establish in it not only the arena of struggle, but also the strength and behavior of the fighting heroes.
The graphic design of the title consists of hand drawn and animated two-dimensional sprites of characters for which Arc Sytem Works is famous and full of background details. Also noteworthy is the soundtrack, which includes heavymetal and rock songs, referring to classical hits of these genres of music.
