    Short and sweet, this is a 3DS port of the console Continuum Shift, and as far as ports go there ain't much better. Besides it's lack of sleep functionality (?) and no wireless fighting, there is no better way to hone your skills on the go for the big battle on PS3 or SexBox. As a 4 button fighter there are few-to-zero button configuration changes, and the little sprites may not be asShort and sweet, this is a 3DS port of the console Continuum Shift, and as far as ports go there ain't much better. Besides it's lack of sleep functionality (?) and no wireless fighting, there is no better way to hone your skills on the go for the big battle on PS3 or SexBox. As a 4 button fighter there are few-to-zero button configuration changes, and the little sprites may not be as high-res but are as detailed and supple as you could imagine them to be. Backgrounds are lacking compared to the console version but BB is fast enough for you to ignore it. I'd toted DOA as the premiere 3DS fighter but have traded it and SSFIV, one fighter is enough in my life and BlazBlue is it. Expand

    I don't know why Japanese companies label games as sequels that obviously are not. This is no sequel as the "II" in the title implies. It is the Continuum Shift we were given on consoles only much smaller. They should call it BlazBlue Continuum Shift Portable or 3D, don't mislead with the title and make us think it is something totally new. That said, this is still a great game.

Its is loads of fun, packed with content, and looks great. As apposed to DOA Dimensions and Super Street Fighter IV 3D, the framerate doesn't take a hit when the 3D is on, which is a plus, My only problem with the game is that graphically the characters look too small and coupled with the intricately detailed environments and all the chaos onscreen, it can be a little difficult to tell what is happening. The game controls great, it is easy to pick up and play and there is a lot of depth to be found if you sink enough time into it. There are so many modes, Story, Arcade, Legion, etc. There is also plenty of training that comes in the form of a standard practice mode against a dummy, and also a tutorial mode teaching you the finer aspects of 2D fighting. There is also plenty to unlock and collect, so this game should keep you busy for some time. Definitely worth picking up if you like fighting games, unless you already own this on a console in which case you can pass. I just hope Nintendo releases more games that aren't in the fighting genre soon. Expand

    I've never played the console version so i have nothing to compare it with, but this game is awesome. i also have Super Street Fighter IV but in my opinion this game is way better. it has way more modes and the cool anime style is awesome. the more you play the more experience points an money you get which you can use to level up, and buy better stats for Abyss mode. story mode is alsoI've never played the console version so i have nothing to compare it with, but this game is awesome. i also have Super Street Fighter IV but in my opinion this game is way better. it has way more modes and the cool anime style is awesome. the more you play the more experience points an money you get which you can use to level up, and buy better stats for Abyss mode. story mode is also awesome, especially since it has full voice acting. it might have been put off having to read a lot of text in a fighting game otherwise. anyways its a good game, the only thing it's missing would be an online mode. i don't really mind, i don't even play SSFIV online. i give this game a 9, but if you really like playing online knock off a point or two.

    That said, if you want what is probably the best 2D fighting experience available on 3DS and don't mind the lack of online play, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II is the perfect choice.

    BlazBlue Continuum Shift II shines in its gameplay but fails in every other aspect, due to the many flaws of a lazy porting.

    This game has its own style and it has got a lot of options. But the truth is that there are better fighting games for sale for the 3DS.
