Shaken by the merciless beating, it takes a brave man/woman to press restart, but a brave man/woman strengthened with the knowledge that, sophisticated combat be damned, in the land of Bleach the nimblest button masher wins. Fast and furious is the flavor of the day. With complicated button combos thrown out in favor of touch screen special attack activation, instant gratification is on hand for all.
Battles are often decided by the speed of touch screen pawing, but this results in a brawler true to the anime’s eyeball frazzling balminess. It could benefit from some time on the quiet step, but Bleach is still a premium DS brawler.
