    If one already has Blazblue: Calamity Trigger or never picked it up, is this game worth the purchase?

    Rated on July 26, 2010 by ChibiMaddiChan

    Let's get straight to the point: I'm sure a few people may wonder: is this game a legitimate sequel or is it simply an 'upgrade' from Calamity Trigger? Most definitely, the latter, though the storylin...

    BlazBlue is back with improvements to its already solid design.

    It wasn't long after the console release of the first BlazBlue entry subtitled Calamity Trigger that developers Arcsys (makers of the legendary Guilty Gear) unveiled the next: Continuum Shift. It's be...

    Truly one if not the greatest 2-D fighter out there so far. BB: CS is noting short of excellence in a console fighter.

    All right hello Meta77 here giving his first review ^^. Let's jump right into it. Blazblue is by all means one of the greatest 2D fighters out there. After putting in the disk and watching the great...

    An Expansion? A sequel? I can't tell really...

    Rated on August 12, 2010 by Readial

    It seems that all fighting games has this tendancy to change very little and call it a sequel and also change a lot and call it an expansion to the original and by this logic, I am slighty confused to...

    A comprehensive fighting game experience.

    Rated on August 25, 2010 by bubbleboyii

    Blazblue: Calamity Trigger remains one of my favorite games. It's fast, flashy, and damned good fun. So it seems natural that Continuum Shift is even better (and it is!). Continuum Shift adds 3 new ch...

    Blazblue CT is so unique it is really hard to describe it in words. If you know anything about Guilty Gear, then the bizzare and stylish look designed by Arc System Works shouldn't surprize you. Bla...

    Everything the review said minus the weak story telling. Nothing weak about it.

    Rated on October 06, 2010 by Gnosis13

    Best fighter on the market, no contest. Slightly difficult for newcomers ( but that is why game developers create an easy mode). The story at times seems to drag on for too long ( I'm looking at you, ...

    Blazblue is a game for the hardcore fighting game fan.

    Rated on August 22, 2011 by LiuKang3000

    Blazblue is a 2d fighting game made by Arc System Works. It is the counterpart to Guilty Gear. Actually, a Guilty Gear fan will be able to see similarities in these characters with GG characters. ...
