    Looks aren't everything, though. Black Rock Shooter gives players a clever blend of action and RPG. It's not really a shooter, and it's not turn-based. Black Rock Shooter: The Game takes elements from a variety of genres and puts them together in a unique and addictive way. The world hasn't seen a game quite like this before.

    In the end, Black Rock Shooter: The Game isn’t quite the standout title that will entrance the world’s audience, but it offers a glimpse of what could have been and makes me hopeful for the future of the series in the gaming medium.

    Black Rock Shooter is competent at what it does and, for the most part, entertaining to play. However, it could use a bit more polish and imagination in its design. It doesn't turn the genre on its head, but with my guns blazing through the chaos, I found a more meaningful story than I expected.

    BRS is not actually broken, but there's nothing about it that will make you glad you put even 10 hours into it.

    There are many other options for PSP out there, so unless you're a fan of the character or you're looking for a brand new game to enjoy on this handheld, there are no too many reasons to highlight this title.

    A no-brainer if you're a fan of the series, but for anyone else it's really neither here nor there. If you like young girls with big guns and have a penchant for middle-of-the-road action-RPGs, this may well be for you.
  7. 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gameplay, a by-the-numbers story, and graphics from a bygone era leave this PSP port stuck between a rock and a really outdated place.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]

    I loved this game. 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. Expand

    Just don't ask me how addicted I am to Black Rock Shooter The Game! Crisp visuals, good story and good graphics. Rpg fans will crave this title. The story is about Shooters in the next dimension who stop Fighters. The movie and comics link together for a good time on PSP. Go buy it right now. Expand

    Even though this game came out about 2 years ago originally in japan, it still rocks! (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!

    Though the game leaves much to be desired, the simple combat system and fast mission based story mode makes the game a lot more bearable. That said the games age shows. With copy-pasted areas, jagged edges, vague story, and lack of characterization for the main character as well as the villains; the game leaves much to be desired. However, with all that said the game is still worth picking up. Its story, though vague, is original and a few characters are memorable. Collapse

    Although it does not look like it,the gameplay is repetitive and one may actually find joy if their preferences includes quick reflexes to beat their opponents Expand

    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.
