  1. BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is probably a game best suited for people who have been playing fighting games for a long time, but even then, its style seems to be deliberately divisive. It's certainly worth trying out if you're a fan of the genre, but it's entirely possible that you'll find the whole thing to be a big, loud mess.
  2. Overall, for all its bizarre dialogue, crazy stories and weird looking characters with strange voiceovers it works this game is amazingly entertaining and slightly addictive!

Never get boring and lovely to play with friends. Al characters are based on metal music and the soundtrack is awesome. Every anime game lover should buy this game. Animations are perfect. But there is one thing i i disliked. There are not many characters. But a fighting game that has a nice story? Never saw it before Full Review »

BlazBlue gives you everything. Beautiful, crisp high definition 2D characters on top of gorgeous blended 2D/3D environments. 12 TRULY UNIQUE characters with independent fighting styles. No clones here. An excellent soundtrack inspired by the famed Daisuke Ishiwatari. Online features that should make Capcom reconsider their lack luster offering in Street Fighter IV. The only reasons to give this game anything less than the perfect rating it deserves would be personal preference or a lack of ability to see the facts. BlazBlue is the number one fighting game of 2009. Full Review »

The anime characters are a bit cliché and expectable, that aside the game is enjoyable whenever you play it online or with your friends in the versus mode.

    If you are a fan of fighting games, you should consider this into your collection. If you're a casual gamer that likes anime characters in fighting games, consider BlazBlue.
