Masterpiece game and greatest fighter of our time
A lot of westerners in the fighting game community have already imported this game due just to the amazingly complex mechanics that force players to develop and adapt to combat and hold tournaments everywhere (like CEO in Orlando.) But the US release is great news for us who also love the epic visual novel of a story; a story mode always worthy of being a stand-alone title. With excellent netcode, unmatched visuals and legendary Arc System Works gamecraft under the hood, the only complaint someone may have about this game is that it's "too hard" (it's epic for a reason. Will have to be willing to get a Goku-mentality about training if you wanna be good) and that it's only on PS3 and Vita with Arc not planning to make any MicroSoft ports.
Amazing fighting game that's not just an expansion
Blazblue Chronophantasma is the best Blazblue game to date and one of the best fighting games on the PS3. The fighting game system is terrific and exudes polish. The online play is relatively smooth, even if your connection isn't the best. Connecting with players is made simple through the online lobby mode which lets you customize your own avatar and fight opponents in a very arcade- like manner. There's also a VERY extensive tutorial that teaches you all of the game's mechanics quite thoroughly. This, in conjunction with the "stylish mode" that lets you perform short combos by simply mashing buttons allows new players to jump in on the action quickly and easily. The single best thing about this game is the amount of content within it. This game isn't just for hardcore fighting gamers; it's for any anime fan who can enjoy an extensive visual novel story, though I recommend that you play the first couple of games first, or look up the story online to get some background knowledge. The story can get quite complicated, but looking past that provides an engaging experience. The characters all have personality and that shows in their fighting styles. No two characters are the same; there are no clones, which is another issue many other fighting games often have. So picking up a character feels more personal and rewarding as well. There are also countless modes to play through, and many pieces of in game art to unlock. The soundtrack is filled with many memorable tunes, most of which are adrenaline pumping rock and remixes from the previous games. However, many including myself prefer some of the older versions a bit more, but that in no way means that this soundtrack is bad; far from it in fact. The only things that I can definitely complain about are minimal. Some of the voice actors are lacking compared to their former counterparts, but the dialogue can be switched between English and Japanese, and nothing from either side is really too ear-gratingly bad. There was also one DLC character that turned out to be EXTREMELY broken, but a patch was released that toned her down a bit, so balancing isn't too much of an issue. To sum it up, this game has amazing gameplay, amazing online play, and a ton of modes for extensive replay value. Some may say that this is just an expansion, but 7 new characters (2 of which are DLC), a whole new soundtrack, a new, fulfilling story, redrawn and upgraded graphics, new movesets, and ample modes say otherwise.
An Improvement On Perfection
I must admit that my gaming genre of choice is fighting games, but even with that set aside this game still gets my approval and as of yet should definitely be considered for FIGHTING GAME OF THE YEAR at the next VGAs for a number of reason. To name a few: the network battles load quick and are seamless with virtually no lag, the character roster is robust and well balanced (unlike other fighting games that shall go un-named LIKE ULTRA STREET FIGHTER IV) sorry that slipped out, and there are modes and collectibles galore to give this game enormous replay value. A must have for fighting gamers and casual gamers alike.
