Description of Guilty Gear X

Read Full Description

Guilty Gear X is a very interesting fighting game. It introduces plenty of new ideas to the genre, is the first high-res 2D fighting game ever released, and is probably the best 2D fighter outside of SNK and Capcom's games.

Now, the first thing anyone would notice would be the visuals. Guilty Gear X's visuals are downright amazing. It's incredible what high resolutions can do for hand-drawn visuals. The effects are excellent, the backgrounds are beautiful, and the characters look wonderful. The only complaint I have with GGX's visuals are the animations. While they aren't exactly lacking, they don't look quite as good as they could have. Still, this is easily one of the best looking 2D games ever released.

As one could expect, the sound isn't anything special. The effects sound as they should, with some exceptions (the air dash sounds very out of place). The synth-guitar music is pretty average, though it fits the game well. Then we have the gameplay. Guilty Gear X is unique, to say the least. The new gameplay features introduced are interesting, and are a nice change of pace. First, you can build up your special gauge simply by moving forward. While that's nice, you actually lose your gauge if you don't make an advance.

Next, there's the Roman Cancel. For the cost of half of the special gauge, you can press three buttons to cancel the recovery of most attacks, even after collision detection. This can lead to some very over-the-top combos. Of course, these aren't all of the unique features of GGX; some of the others include "Instant Block" (similar to Just Defending in Fatal Fury: Mark Of The Wolves), "Faultless Defense", and "Instant Kill". Yes, you heard right. It is possible to kill the opponent with a single attack. Thankfully, these usually only work against the most foolish opponents.

Overall, Guilty Gear X is a very impressive game. I wouldn't say it beats out Mark of the Wolves or Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, but it's easily worth a look, especially since good fighting games for PC are few and far between. This rare English PC version was ported from the better-known PlayStation version by Cyberfront Studios.

For those having trouble with the pccfg_E.exe program (or when pressing 2 when it launches) and having the config menu be mostly grayed out:

Download the iso file instead of the installer. Mount the iso, this will create a new drive (should open automatically, it's with the other drives) from there click on pccfg_E.exe and the menu should pop up again. This time select install, the game should then install correctly and you can change the keybindings under config.

If you don't do a custom install and have lost where the file went then you should be able to locate it by right clicking the application when you search for it in your search bar (it's named guiltygearx) and then click open file location. From there you should be able to find the config shortcut.

Keyboard and pad config is not working, but you can play smooth with a mapping controller such as antimicro, the mapping keys are:

Really needs a controller fix. Even with DS4Windows it's not looking too good. Can't move diagonally, so no jumping around or special moves, and the general controls are whack besides that. Really needs a fix. And thanks to the writer not knowing how to title games, it's hard as hell to find any info on GGX.

To change the controls open pccfg_E.exe from there go to keyboard config and then click the buttons that say stuff like "UP" or "X PUNCH".

I downloaded the game, installed it and it runs perfectly. The only problem is... I can't configure the game!
When I run the game, I press '2' to run the configure option but I can't press any of the buttons.
