    BRS is pretty disappointing. 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.

    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.

    There are better RPGs on the system, but for fans and those looking for something a little different, Black Rock Shooter will hit the spot for a while.

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gameplay, a by-the-numbers story, and graphics from a bygone era leave this PSP port stuck between a rock and a really outdated place.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