Rated 0 out of 10 by waffle-chan why did you do this?
When I saw the trailer for the Japanese version of this game on YouTube, i was thrilled to see an anime-based fighting game that looked like it didn't completely bite. It looked playable, and like it might actually be fun. I eventually learned the North American release date and patiently bided my time. I might have bought the English release too, until i found out your unpleasant little secret, namely THE EDITING OF THE ARRANCAR CHARACTERS FROM THE GAME. As if that wasn't enough, all bankai forms that have not yet been revealed in the North American dub will also be taken out of the game. I try to be fair, but that is something that can only be described by words that i'm not allowed to use on here. Did you have to do this? Couldn't you have just pushed back the release date? Either way, I will not buy this game. Instead I will opt for the Japanese release, even if I do have to pay more and buy more stuff to be able to play it on my Wii.
Rated 10 out of 10 by kimimaro87 This has it's doubts, but it is fun!
I've had this game for 9 months now! I still never want to give it up! Then again, I'm a Bleach fan, so I guess it comes second nature that I like this game. It is very responsive as far as controls go. Some characters are better than others. Hanatoro Yamada SUCKS! If you have the patience to play thru his story mode, then good for you! You need nerves of steel to control him! As for others like Ichigo or Yoruichi. They are fluid and easy to use. The combo system... well, there is no combo system! You basically just waggle the remote! Like I said unless you're a hardcore Bleach fan like me, then don't get this. Get Naruto instead. It really pains me to say this, but there are better games. I recommend getting Bleach Dark Souls this october if you want a good soul reaper fight. Finally, it has good graphics, voiceovers kick butt, but the game could have been done better. But I still play it.... So, you be the judge.
Rated 9 out of 10 by The Man With the plan This game is....
Awesome Completely awesome its very in depth,the characters are balanced,and The grapics are amazing!the sound is the only thing i was concerned with it just didnt feel right for the mood otherwise it was awesome... although im a big fan of bleach and theres tons of characters in here they only use the most basic ones to get a 10 from me theyd need more characters!however its got grimmjow and Ulquiorra 2 great additions to the perfect Bleach game.also i loved the new storyline it cuts of from the soul society arc and people fight for the Soukyoku shards which Ukitake And Kyoraku Crushed!people are trying to gain these for power!but at the end of each persons story mode you have to fight a boss named Arturo i think and he's easy.as a bonus after you win with all the characters in story mode you get Arturos Storymode its so awesome i would definetly recommend this for any Person who loves bleach
Rated 3 out of 10 by bleachcrazy!! Worst anime game of all time
I was surprised at all the things that were lacking in this game. It had a horrible storyline and it was too short. The characters dont have enough health and the bankai doesnt stay very long. On characters like hanatro and inoue there is no way they can beat a person like ichigo. The graphics were okay and so were the voices but a disappointment to any anime fan. It didnt have enough modes and after you beat the storyline there was nothing left to do. I expect more from this game. The controls were fun. The storyline took me about 2 hours and a half to finish. If you like a game just to hack and slash at then this is your game. To all bleach fans dont buy the game if you really want to play it just borrow or rent it. The next game is so much better hopefully it comes out in america its called bleach crusade rivals.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Gannan the Viking Chef BANKAI!!!!!!!
Bleach:The Shattered Blade is a fun, if basic, fighter for Wii.There is a good variety of characters to choose from, each with their own distinct fighting style, and power-up, activated by shaking the nunchuk controller like a madman.There are like 3 in-game controls:swinging the remote 2 different ways plus the power-up, as I just explained.There are "special" characters, but they're WAY too hard to play as.The storyline is different for each character, but sadly boils down to the same thing for everyone:gather Sokyoku shards for a good purpose, only to find out you have been tricked into reviving a super-powerful Arrancar who instantly tries to kill you.All the actors from the Bleach anime provide voices for this game, which for once suprised me.Anyway...this is a great game.I highly recommend it to Bleach fans!
Rated 0 out of 10 by kurosaki^^ it looks good does'nt it?
i bought the imported jap. version last year...played it on my wii for about 30min it was so fun!then a while later i got so bored...all you do is run around sereitei fighting this one arrancar named arturo plateado(he escapes from sokyoku hill) who impersonates various figures ranging from the gotei 13's captains all the way to zanpakuto spirits.graphics are ok they're no different from gamecube's (just a little better).there are 32 playable characters which made it so much fun at first you can also play as some arrancar such as grimmjow and ulquiorra.but in the end its very boring trust me this game isnt as fun as you'd expect i give it a 7.0 for graphics, action,shikai's,bankai's,and of course many of the gotei 13's captains and lieutenants.
Rated 0 out of 10 by The Kaganader good but wont have everything
I've played the Japanese version of this game, and that one has all the characters in there, forgot how many but around 42 of them with all there Bankais. and its a totally great game, but for the american version there going to take out many characters and most of there bankias due to the fact that here in america we are not that very far into the bleach episodes as opposed to japan. We are about 1/3 behind japan and due to that we wont have all the awesome characters and there bankias but hey its Bleach! It would be nice to have everything the jap version has but if they do that then it would show bankias and characters not shown in the series yet.
Rated 6 out of 10 by blazinmonkey7 Bleach deserves better than this
Big let down after a few hours of playing. Finished the game in a few hours easy. It was impressive at first , but then it became very tiresome. After you do the story mode there nothing else you can do expect fight with the computer or friends. The sword fighting is horrible! Anyone can win in a sword fight if they just do a strong hit constantly; theres no way to block it and good luck trying to avoid it!! The banki on the other hand gave the game some justice. Nice evenly matched bankis, so no one can just get a certain person and expected to own. The sound and graphic were okay ,but overall dont recommend this to a friend unless they're real beach fans.

Rated 5 out of 10 by DAK075 Too Easy.
Yeah, this game was awesome, especially since I loved Bleach at the time I played this, but it was way too easy to win. All you have to do is hold A and flick the Wii remote and you can win easy, since A attacks cannot be blocked. Plus you can just flick the remote as fast as you can for an insanely fast combo. To offset matches from becoming infinite slash fests, they gave you a meter that depletes with each attack you do, and it'll deplete quickly if you continue attacking, but it also recovers quickly whenever you are not attacking to keep gameplay fast. Not only that, but characters do have balance issues such as Grimjow, (however you spell his name, been awhile since I last saw the anime) since he is insanely powerful and can lay waste to enemies in no time if all you do is A attack. Story is short, and once you beat it, just play arcade mode to unlock the rest of the characters. The controls are not bad, but the Wii remote has problems in detecting the 3 different types of attacks you can do. Vertical slash, Horizontal slash, and Thrust. The Wii remote isn't sensitive enough to accurately tell which move you are doing all the time. Sometimes it'll work, other times (which happens too often) will give you a completely different attack. Newcomers to fighting games would love to play this, but hardcores gamers such as myself will be disappointed. It wasn't bad, but it was too easy.
