    The sheer amount of unlockables and additional content ensure that you'll have plenty to uncover. Extend might not be original, but it is built upon the best.

In terms of single player game modes this wipes the floor with Super Street Fighter 4. The problem is the online mode, not that there's technically anything wrong with it but it just seems like there aren't enough people playing this game which is a shame. You often find yourself being matched against the same couple of players and getting anyone to join a team match is pretty much impossible. If you want a 2D fighter for multiplayer get SSF4, if you want a 2D fighter for single player get this. Full Review »

I went from SF4 to Blazblue at first. I just though it was funner. But it just couldn't hold my interest like SF4. I don't care about story, I don't know why anybody does in a fighting game (I actually no longer care about story in ANY game. Give me gameplay, that's why I play games). I wish there was a tag mode. The characters are incredibly diverse but that brings me to a problem: i like fighter weird chars but I don't like playing as one, and this game only has a few options for normal chars. I know that's the point, but it doesn't quite work for me. It's a personal thing, but as you can see by my score, it doesn't bother me that much. A great 2d fighter, and one of the reasons I play 2d fighters the majority of the time (nothing beats Virtua Fighter though). Full Review »
