    This game is an incredible fighter. Fantastic online will keep you coming back. BlazBlue > SFIV... seriously.

    Honestly, an 8.0 for this game makes NO sense. It's quite disgusting actually to rate a fighter of this calibur so low. SFIV got a 9. I've yet to meet someone that prefers SFIV to BB. Not that I...

    It's a hype for sure. But if you are not addicted to 2D beat 'em ups you might be disappointed.

    In my opinion BlazBlue (BB) is better than SF4. Especially it's more easy to learn it for beginners. And i guess i'm a beginner too though. And it's much more faster. The online mode is incredible....

    Beautiful, fast paced, amazing, and did i say beautiful?

    Rated on September 04, 2009 by Howken

    Alright I'll say this strait up right now, this game is not for everyone. BUT If you like old school fighting or want a new spin on old school, get this game. Although its disappointing with only 1...

    My favorite fighting game. Ever.

    Rated on September 06, 2009 by bubbleboyii

    I'm a relatively new fan of the fighting genre. I started two years ago, dipping a toe carefully into fighting games starting with Tekken 5. I wasn't addicted, but I enjoyed it, surprisingly, consider...

    Never before has a fighting game tickled my fancy so.

    Rated on September 19, 2009 by Yazu13

    BlazBlue is a real surprising treat. It has to be if it's making me review it even though I haven't reviewed a game on Gamespot in nearly 3 years! In all of my years of gaming, I have never been so ...

    Good roster of varied characters, fully voiced personalities, fun gameplay that's easy to learn, but clumsy storytelling

    Rated on April 30, 2012 by Ghost-inZeShell

    BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is quite a gem of the fighter genre. I would have rated it a perfect 10, but there was one thing that bugged me, and everyone I know who's played the game, and I'll just ge...

    Hold back a little, this is not a game you can just dive into!

    Rated on October 04, 2009 by kairikh
