At the outset of the game, the only playable characters are Ichigo, Rukia, Ishida, Sado, and Orihime but 18 additional fighters may be unlocked as conditions are met. In the Story Mode of the game, players choose one of the five characters and then engage in objective-based battles as well as collaborations with a COM-controlled fighter against another duo of warriors. The Story Mode features new interactive storylines for the characters to follow and starts off with a battle where Ichigo fights by his lonesome. In subsequent clashes, Ichigo teams up with fighters to battle opposing duos. A Mission Mode starts off with 5 available scenarios to enjoy but includes a total of 50 missions to play and dominate. The graphics are cel-shaded and the fluid animation lends itself nicely to an all-around competent fighting game. «NCS Game Notes»

The overall aim of the game is to earn a total of JPY1,000,000 per diem while under the wing of a grimacing boss/dispatcher. By earning oodles of cash, taxi cabs may be upgraded with performance enhancements such as speed boosters, a satellite navigation system, and improved cornering ability in addition to other upgrades. A tricked-out cab is conducive to getting passengers to their destinations quicker and lends to improved comfort for the ridership. Some passengers need to get to their destinations quickly while others are less pressed for speed but still demand a certain level or professionalism. Still other passengers may get carsick easily if your handling is less than optimal. Weather also plays a part in the game where the elements look to deter the passage of a cab through the canyons of the metropolis. «NCS Game Notes»
