Sengoku Basara X Cross
    


   

ABOUT
Sengoku Basara X (cross) is a 2D fighting game developed collaboratively by Arc System Works & Capcom; based off of the series of the same name. Fans of the Basara series will find a ton of fan service, from the dialogue & character mannerisms to backgrounds & music. The game looks and plays very similar to the likes of Guilty Gear X and Hokuto No Ken
 
 

Could the colors of that guy's outfit possibly be more tacky?

 

Sengoku Basara X
features 10 playable characters inspired by Japan's feudal era and a "Reinforcement" or assist system. Each fighter has a special "engun" character that can be called in for an assist technique during gameplay. Each assist character can perform 3 different types of assist moves, each depending on the main fighter's current situation. There's a default assist attack, a counter assist attack (occurring when the main player receives damage), and a special attack (occurring while the main character is doing a special move). The Japanese-only PS2 version features two additional characters over the arcade version.

 

Uhhh, dude... I think it might be a good time to duck.

BOTTOM LINE

  

  

 

Final Words:

As a fan of the Samurai Shodown series (and many other weapon-based fighting games), I kind of wanted to try out this Arc System Works-developed 2D fighter... I haven't gotten around to it due to not having an Japan import-compatible PS2. I probably would've bought the game day one if it got a localized western release, but sadly, that didn't happen.

Overall, Sengoku Basara X Cross has a Guilty Gear X vibe in terms of visuals... some of the backgrounds and sprites are impressive, yet pretty "clashy" at the same time. I heard the gameplay is broken, but if I ever get around to playing this game, I'll give it a fair shake.
