Rated 10 out of 10 by OC Maker An awesome Bleach game
I love this game! Or at least, I will love it. I have the first one, The Blade Of Fate, and I am hooked on it, despite it's mildly low selection of characters. In my opinion, all but one character, which is Bonnie, completely deserved to return. It has players that only had a speaking role in the original in the spotlight. Characters that had no role whatsoever in the original, like Shuuhei and the Hollows, also have some spotlight in the fighting. I don't think you'll be missing too much if you get this before the first. Another thing I love about this, which also took a while for me to grasp, are the controls. The touch screen doesn't get too much action in these games unless you want a constant repetition of their special and super moves. The controls help them do their moves, such as B for their Flash Step, A for high, Y for low, and X for medium height. It took me a while to get good combos due to those controls, but you can do awesome combos once you grasp the controls. So I recommend this game as well as the original.
Rated 0 out of 10 by OC Maker The Impossible made Possible
Treasurer and SEGA have really done it now. Making a sequel to one of the best DS fighting games, if not the best, is going to keep this game on sale for months! I have the original and playing the 28 characters they have available is unbelieveably addicting! They have lovable oldies like Hollow Ichigo and Renji, while bringing some new ones like Urahara and Kukaku. I only know about 7 new ones out of the additional 16, but I'm ultimately psyched to find out! The release date couldn't come at a better time or whatever... The graphics and moves have been updated as well, along with the fighting skills. With newbies like Kukaku and Matsumoto (since I'm partially familiar with a couple of Urahara's), you'd be just itching to see their techniques. This is going to be greater than the already awesome Blade of Fate, and that's something to be proud of! My fellow Bleachtards, look forward to this game, because if you like fighting RPGs like Pokemon and Naruto, this game could most likely blow other fighting games way out of the water!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ice_wolf An amazing game
This game is by far one of the best games I've ever played. When it came out back in 2008 I didn't even own a DS but I wanted one just so I could buy the game. It has amazing graphics, an excellent story line that goes with the final episode of the first half of the Bleach series, and a good number of characters to play as. It's not like most games that make you stay as the main character for the whole storyline, but rather in some levels you get to be different characters. The levels are hard yes, but not so hard to where they're unbeatable like some games. The special powers that they give to the characters for battle actually keep to the anime/manga story, which again, most games don't do that. I've played some games that give the characters less powers or new powers they never had; this game gives the characters the exact same powers they have in the anime. I would recommend this game to any Bleach fan.
Rated 10 out of 10 by cudicutie Superior Fighting Game for DS!!!!!!
There is a lot I can say about this game other than it being great. First of all the gameplay is just great. Its top notch were you can pull off some insane combos or hits one after the other. The music is great from the intro to the title screen and until the ending. The character graphics r great and look really smooth in action, but maybe the stages could have been slightly better. Still great though. A couple things to say is the character roster is large for a ds game and every character has there way to fight. There are mutiple stages from being bored. This game will keep you interested for a long time since this game let's u customize a lot of things such as the wallpaperand the sound of your favorite character voice for the game to say things. Overall this game is a must have for any bleach or fighting game fan.
Rated 8 out of 10 by RUN This is a Great Game!
I really enjoy this game and had a great time playing the first one too. There are many characters in this game and beating the game once doesn't get you every thing. That's what I like about games. Also you don't have to replay every part of story mode. You can go back to the parts to complete parts you didn't complete yet. If you are a fan of the Bleach series, then this is a must play for you. The story line doesn't complete go with the TV series. I'm not sure if it follows the manga series because I never read those yet. But overall this is a great game. Unlike some other fighting games that have mass of characters to play with. The characters in Dark Soul have their own special and super moves. As an overall rating I give this game an 8. Hope this review answers some of your questions about the game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SailorPokemon Great for Bleach fans~
Overall I thought this game was pretty awesome! I thought the graphics were great, considering I only really play DS and/or GameBoy games. The storyline was pretty fun, a lot of fighting, but that's a given in most games like this. There were more characters and cool new Bankai moves than the last. My only problem with the game was that Aizen doesn't do a 'cool Bankai' attack like he did in The Blade of Fate game. But then again, I'm an Aizen fangirl, so it may not bother others as much. Oh, and once you finish the story mode, you can go back to what you want to later. (Also, the game has alternative endings, which I found interesting..). So if you like fighting games, random stories and fights, [Aizen- cough], or anything like that, I bet you'll like this game! I hoped I helped someone.
Rated 10 out of 10 by jinpartyji A Great Ds Game
This game took the first game (Blade Of Fate) and said ok here's what were going to do. Keep the same format and give you more characters and balance everything out (or try to at least). My only problem with this and the first game is the card base assists feature (but you can turn it on or off for this one, I don't remember if you can for the first one.) But even that can be a big game changer. The fact this game has 1v1v1v1's and tag battle and so forth is great, the whole line battle is great for free for all's or tag battles. And the best thing is the fact you can ds download play with any of your friends who don't have the game and use anyone you have unlocked, so if you have everyone it's going to be fun for either single player or multiplayer craziness.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Kankuro Rules Zaraki Kenpachi
This is the best game for the DS in America I think because you can unlock and play as almost every single character in the show even hanataro and Kon (But no one uses them they suck). The Storyline is weird because instead of ichigo going back to his hometown he stays in soul society and theres a festival and then osme dude finds a whole rack of mos souls and they turn into hollows and you ave to defeat them i still havent unlocked everyone. But they made Kenpachi suck (or I just dont know how to use him) hes slow and has weak attacks. The person I use the most is the commander dude ( I cant remember his name) and Ichimaru. And you can buy different costumes for every character even though it's just different colors. I wish they would make it easier to unlock characters

Rated 9 out of 10 by IceNeon AMAZING Audio but Graphics Could be Better
I am a Bleach fan myself and I LOVED this game. I recently bought it and have not put it down since. It has tons of combos to memorize but if you don't want to memorize them all, the touch screen comes in handy for this. The graphics durning game play could be a lot better but this is a DS game so its pretty good based on the standard. The graphics not in gameplay (i.e. chat) were awesome and well thought out. Audio was amazing and really close to the series. I have yet to use the Wi Fi option but I loved that highlight as well. Definatly worth your money if you're into fight / action games.
