Game System Details

Guilty Gear 2 uses 4 buttons- Punch, Kick, Weak Slash and Feirce Slash.Most of the controls from Guilty Gear 1 are still present in Guilty Gear 2 such as the Gateling Combinations (chain combos).

The Tention Meter
In place of a POW meter, GG2 uses a meter called "Tention Meter". The tention meter rises when the player takes any offensive actions (ie: dash forward, attack, foot sweep, etc), but decreases if the player takes any passive actions (ie: backdash, back jump). When the Tention meter builds up, the poalyer can execute special attacks such as guard cancels and super attacks.

Faust's Dust Attack

Dust Attack
Launches the opponent into the air for an aireal combination. Unguardable when blocking low.

Dead Angle Attack
Uses some tention meter to execute Guard Cancel attacks.

Faultless Defence

Faultless Defence
Uses some tention meter to create a barrier feild. During the faultless defence, no tick damage from specials will be taken, and a distance can be created from theopponent as well.

May's Super.

Super Attacks
When the tention meter is up to a level, each character can execute supers (rapid combos, power-ups, etc).

One hit Death.

One Hit Death
By pressing all attack buttons at once and then executing a special command depending on the character, players can execute the One hit Death. While the Tention meter bar itself will disappear once the One hit Death is executed(returns in the next round), if the attack hits the opponent will be KO'ed in one hit. Unlike Guilty Gear 1, the One Hit Death only brings in one round and not the whole game.

Not all characters have been revealed yet- more new characters are to be revealed in the near future.
