Average User Score: 8.1Mar 6, 2012As a fan of the series I am let down a little by Extend, it feels like this could have been an online expansion in the same fashion as Continuum Shift II. The new game modes Unlimited Mars and Abyss are welcome but the removal of the Legion game mode irks me and feels like a step backwards.
Despite my grievances the core game still remains as fantastic as always. The BlazBlue series has always been a breath of fresh air even for the most hardcore fighting game fans. Providing both a compelling story mode experience (something I feel many fighting games lack) and unique mechanics to fighting games. One thing I enjoy most about BlazBlue is that each character has a button dedicated to their "Drive" moves, these are a type of normal attack but are very specific for each character. For example all of Jin's "Drive" attacks will freeze opponents on impact, this adds to the experience and makes each character feel really unique.
If you do not have a previous version of Continuum Shift and enjoy fighting games this is a must buy. If you have played it before I personally don't find it worth the money unless you are a fan of the series.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.5Mar 6, 2012As a game? Asura's Wrath falls short. The combat is lacking depth in comparison to it's peers (Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden, etc), the shooting sequences are repetitive seem tacked on and both the combat and cutscenes are crammed with quick-time events.
As an experience? Asura's Wrath presents a compelling story and a thrilling experience overall, complimented by the game's charming graphical style. If you go into this game looking at it as an interactive story experience and less of a game you will enjoy yourself much more.
Sadly I have to give it a 5 due to the "video game" components of Asura's Wrath being rather lackluster. Despite this I recommend this to anyone looking for an exciting story.… Expand
