    The best indicator of whether a given gamer will appreciate Black Rock Shooter is its visual style. The game offers moderately entertaining combat and sad girls in snow, but these can be obtained elsewhere at a fraction of the aggravation. At its core, the story is a familiar one that isn't able to justify its retelling with a new twist. There is something to be said for a game that embraces zoning out and rhythmically blowing things up, but it's not always a straight-up compliment. Look, but don't touch.

    Basic gameplay, a by-the-numbers story, and graphics from a bygone era leave this PSP port stuck between a rock and a really outdated place. [July 2013, p.100]

(get it?) it's an action game with rpg elements, not as complicated as monster hunter but still pretty in depth if you're into that type of thing, the action is the best part, story is good specially if you're into the BRS Anime/Manga or you've watched the OVA, buy this game, we can still make the psp last a couple more years!

While the battle system is pretty fun, it quickly gets repetitive thanks to the limited amount of enemy types that require the same tactics to defeat. Furthermore, the rest of the game is pretty bland. Character models are nice, but the environments and enemies are mostly boring and repeated far too much. The story is ok, but it isn't amazing.

Epic dystopian storyline with great characters, superb moments and twists, always exciting (unique) battle system with tactics and action, huge boss fights, varied surroundings with distinct atmosphere, top-quality interface design, graphics absolutely OK for psp possibilities (don't know how anybody can even complain about this point), mission based progression system makes it even more rewarding. Game let's you experience things you might have never imagined. I'm impressed. Full Review »
