Bleach: Soul Resurrección Review - 8.0

Platform Played On
Bleach: Soul Resurrección
PlayStation 3

Before I get into the review I would just to apologise for the delay in getting this review up. I had hoped to have it online by Friday, the games release day here in the UK, but I was unable to. So I apologise to my readers and to Temco Koei who were kind enough to send me a review copy of Bleach: Soul Resurrección.

The Good
  • Characters look great
  • Plenty of replay value
  • Easy Controls
  • Moves look powerful and destructive

The Bad
  • Main game is a bit short
  • Loading times a tad long
  • Game is a bit tough

Review Summary

Bleach: Soul Resurrección is a hack and slash game, in a similar vein to Dynasty Warriors, but it shouldn't be dismissed for it. Bleach: Soul Resurrección is a great looking game, it successfully brings the Bleach Anime/Manga to the PS3. Whilst the Story mode is short, with only 14 story levels, there are 28 Missions and 9 additional levels in Soul Attack. These extra levels, combined with how the game dishes out trophies and the various difficulty levels, do mean there is plenty of replay with Bleach: Soul Resurrección. The game can get a bit tough in places, but levelling up characters isn't hard. The overall story that is told via the game is pretty lacking, but for Bleach fans who have seen the Anime this is never a problem and it covers most of the main battles and fights. I had fun playing this game and happily recommend it to any Bleach fan, Hack And Slash Fans, or PS3 gamers looking for a fun challenge.
