BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Limited Edition
BlazBlue is a must have Fighting Game!!
BlazBlue is not only a very challenging and wonderful game, but it is also stunning graphics wise. Even though the game consists of 2D fighting, the visuals and the backgrounds are something to awe at. The luscious color in the background and the vibrant contrast of the lighting in the fighting locations are amazing. But enough about the graphics, this game is overall wonderful. The fighting is complicated and very intriguing to say the least, but it isn't too hard for a beginner to grasp. This is my first 2D fighting game and i picked it up fairly easily. You can set up the controls the way you want them and set them the way that suits the player. Even though there are only a dozen characters to choose from (including the unlockables) each is unique in their fighting style. Mastering one character takes much time and effort but it gives you a major sense of accomplishment in the end. I definately recommend this to anyone who is new to fighting games or is used to them. It's really fun
BlazBlue with Style
I currently am residing in Japan and stopped by a local arcade and played this game. I have to say, it was a whole lot of fun. I personally went through the game with Ragna and Bang, and just those two characters alone offer totally different play styles. The main problem I have regarding this game is the relatively small amount of characters, there are 12 confirmed so far, most likely not any more. (The arcade has 12) That being said, it's a lot of fun and the characters all play so very differently, but whether the replay ability on consoles stands out or not in an age where 2D fighters have many characters is the real question. Definitely worth at least a rent, it's a really fun game.
Great Game, possibly needs a bit more though
BlazBlue is an excellent game. The Story, Versus and Arcade modes are all top notch!! There are lots of great unlockable achievements for the 360 version. It has great gameplay and great character moves, as well as excellent animation. Though it is a 2-D game, I would highly recommend it. The reason I rated it somewhat poorly was for 2 reasons. 1) I believe the 10-person character base is somewhat limited. I feel there should be a few more characters that are available for the Arcade, Story, Versus, and Networking modes - sort of like the previously created game "Guilted Gear", or even a game like "Street Fighter IV". And 2) I feel that the downloadables need to be expanded upon. The only real downloadables for XBox 360 are more-or-less Ultimate versions of 4 out of the 10 characters on the game, which can actually be unlocked just by playing out the story and arcade modes. I think if the creators are able to add in a few more characters to the game, through downloads on both the PS3 and XBox 360, this game would be rated 10 out of 10 stars with no questions asked!!
Great Game hopefully more to come
This game is pure fighting game awesomeness great characters awesome graphics and brilliant story (unlike most fighting games). The graphics are bright and colorful while they aren't like street fighter 4 the gameplay is alot faster. The game features your basic stuff Arcade mode, Time trial, survival, practice and story mode. the story mode has multiple endings win, lose, finshing matches with diffrent moves i've had the game for a few months already and i only 100 percented 1 characters story. The online competion is tough enough said. the games challanges ranges from easy to rage quit hard some character s are abit over powered *cough* tager *cough* like being able to cancel out yout combo and hitting you withan over powering attack but thats only 1 character all in all great fighter biggest let down is the lack of unlockable characters but hopefully we see more in a hopeful sequal.
It is that good.
I play this game every chance I get in the arcade down in Chinatown. And it truly does live up to the Guilty Gear legacy, but the combat system is much friendlier to the recreational gamer. Unlike Guilty Gear I can see Blazblue with a bigger fan base just because you don't have to be perfect to keep up with friends that are better than you. I also have not seen a game in which you see such a variety of different characters are used throughout a tournament bracket. And even the most serious of local gamers seem to just enjoy playing it more than I thought they would because they can pick up characters that they wouldn't normally use and mess around with friends. I'm really looking forward to the console release. Between the smooth mechanics of the game itself, and the gorgeous art of the characters and backdrops themselves this game is gonna be a must for any fan of fighters.
Guilty Gear with another Name?
First of all there is an arcade mode where you fight ten other characters and between the fourth and the eighth character i believe you get into a little dialogue just as you would get in street fighter alpha game. Then there is story mode with no animations, which would have done wonders to this game, but sadly enough are just stand alone drawings with voice overs. Story mode narration can and will get annoying even if you can hit the skip button, it will just put it in fast forward mode, and this must be done an incredible amount of times if you want a one hundred percent completion on a single character. There are other modes such as practice and versus but other than that not much more if you have finished everyone else in arcade mode and story mode. Overall I have played only one other game such as this and it was guilty gear on the wii, and this game is full of characters that have many similarities between the two but you pretty much get just another guilty gear. Bottom line distributors felt justified to over price the game because of the inclusion of the two music cds and bonus video disc you could easily watch on video website. Why is it over priced you asked? because the latest guilty gear is about thirty bucks.
one of the best 2d fighter this year
This game will destroy all other competition in fighting games this year. After sf4 this may come in second for most sold. This game has 10 characters plus 2 unlockables. Coming this summer the premium pack will be awesome. Choose different fighting styles and different characters with different personalities, a more than 30 hour storyline with each character, you can't ask anything more than that. Pick from strong to fast to defensive characters and have a blast with your friends and family (that will play it). This game is worth your time and money. Get the bonus material before it gets sold out but ** dollars for such a fun game and such a big pack, its worth it. Get the game you won't regret the decision.
This game looks slick. Character designs are nice as well and the pre-order pack is amazing. The story mode will be great, its confirmed to involve all the characters and take over 30 hour to beat. The story branches and you make choice adventure-game/visual-novel style. Your character may start with an advantage or a disadvantage depending on what choices you make. Online play is confirmed as well, and a new super move for each character is available that wasn't in the arcade version.
This game is amazing!
I've recently had the opportunity to play this game while at an anime convention and I must say that it was fun, intense, and definetly one of the best 2D fighting games i've ever played! If your familiar with games like Guilty Gear (the same ppl who made this game as well) and King of Fighters, then you'll feel right at home with BlazBlue! With its insane combo potential it's a must buy for the hardcore fighting gamers out there!
Simply The Best 2D Fighting Game Of The Year
What's there to say. The creators of Guilty Gear are making this game. The look and feel of the characters from Guilty Gear franchise is great. The storyline was also phenomonal to say the least. Now that they're making a new franchise for next generation systems. You already know what to expect. Arc System Works never disappoints.
