VictorU10As someone who plays nothing but fighting games I can honestly say that you'll only appreciate BlazBlue if you are competent in the capacity of competitive fighting games. 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.… Expand
Beautiful game, however not the best fighting game on the market. The anime characters are a bit clichÃ© 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.… Expand
JohnnyT7I played a lot of Street Fighter II and MK back in the day of the SuperNintendo and SFIV kinda got me into the genre again including some boards on the internet. BlazBlue had some underground hype going for it and I bought it on day one since I was super excited about the premise of an easy to pick up game that I could play against friends who didn't spend as much time with the game as I did and still have an equal challenge. Thing is: This is MUCH MORE COMPLEX than SF since its all about who cancels who and details as such. That doesn't make it a bad game but it something I would only recommend for the most hardcore audience.… Expand
GregM.0It's like Groove on Fight, but half as interesting, fifty times more Anime, and poor controls. Nothing like having the soundscape blaring the shrieks of 13-year old girls! As soothing as drinking a piece of barbed wire.… Expand
