Acceleration of Suguri X Edition Review (PSN)

Posted by Christophor Rick (TheSuperGuido), 38 days ago

Acceleration of Suguri X Edition is a game I had not heard of prior to Rockin Android announcing they were bringing it to the west. While I’m not a major fan of some of the titles Acceleration of Suguri X Editionthey have imported I am always willing to give them a go. The ultra-hardcore shmups that are so popular in Japan only appeal to me when I am in a certain state of mind, generally one of tolerance and calm because they are frustrating at times.

Acceleration of Suguri X Edition is all about high-speed, 1-on-1, mid-air combat as you and your opponent dodge and attack up-close with melee or from a distance with projectiles. You’ll have 12 characters to choose from (each with their own unique fighting style), arcade mode, two story modes (falling wonder and pudding deity), local 2-player versus mode, YouTube replay posting, trophies and leaderboard support.

Normally when I play a game for review I use normal mode, in this case, I used easy because I wanted to actually get through some of the game. Even on easy I wouldn’t say it was all that easy and on normal it was almost exponentially more difficult. Pudding Deity was more difficult than falling wonder as well.

The Acceleration of Suguri X Edition story modes are really just a sort of tournament style with a fairly long drawn out story that you have to read through which is told in almost all dialog. After the first 20 lines or so I got bored and fast forwarded as it wasn’t all that interesting.

Acceleration of Suguri X Edition

The gameplay in Acceleration of Suguri X Edition is exactly as described above. You are in a round airborne arena where you must fight enemies to continue. A single loss results in the game ending though you can continue.

 Our Rating for Acceleration of Suguri X Edition Review (PSN)
6.0
Replay
Maybe on occasion with some friends but once you play through everything itís got little value if youíre not the competitive type.
7.0
Graphics
Anime-inspired graphics are nice but they arenít impressive or all that memorable.
5.5
Sound
Generic techno and heavy metal do nothing for this game in the slightest and the flat battle sounds match that to be all around uninteresting on the audio front.
7.5
Gameplay
When you can do one attack over and over and over again and win with a perfect fight, thereís something wrong with balance in the game.
6.5
Multiplayer/Online Content
Two player local but with certain character match ups the winner is a forgone conclusion from the outset.
6.5
Overall
Itís not a great game but itís not terrible, just in the middle ground. Game balance is off, sound is flat and graphics arenít eye-popping. If youíre a fan of Japanese imports you might see this through more rose-colored glasses. But for the rest of us itís not all that outstanding.
