    Visually appealing and off-kilter enough to remind even the worst cynics that games can actually have a fun core and work out from there — rather than building something then trying to figure out the fun part — BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger offers an interesting distraction, which might not be enough for hardcore fighting fans (who probably played the game to exhaustion years ago), but I'm not one of those people so I actually had some fun with the game.

    Never owned a PS3 or Xbox 360 up to this point (which sucks, because I DO enjoy fighting games more on consoles), but I am a huge fan ofNever owned a PS3 or Xbox 360 up to this point (which sucks, because I DO enjoy fighting games more on consoles), but I am a huge fan of arcade fighters, even though I am terrible. I had heard many great things about the BlazBlue series, and so I decided to start with the first game and give it a try. As the first entry in the series, it's an awesome game. It has charming "sprite-based" graphics and really well-polished fighting mechanics. The story, which of course is optional, is actually really interesting and it didn't feel like a chore to go through. (Even though the PC version has no online play, it's still great fun to play with real life family and friends.) Expand
