    BlazBlue really is gorgeous. Every character is animated in such a way that every movement they make reinforces their personalities. Every environment is a living, breathing thing that sets a meaningful scene and helps build the world around the characters. Because everything is 2D and quite flat, it’s easy to wish that all that storytelling and character building was funnelled into a more natural fit, but then again, with BlazBlue being such a successful franchise for so long now, it’s hard to argue that the developers and producers are making a mistake.

    Central Fiction adds enough characters, mechanics and fine tunes its already nearly flawless gameplay into something that feels as amazing to play as it looks. It’s currently my favorite fighting game on the market, and I have no doubt that I will be throwing dozens of more hours into it in the months to come.

    With tons of content the best story mode ever created for a fighting game and its well known great fighting system, BlazBlue: Central Fight is the best 2D fighting surprise we’ve had this year.

    It packs in pretty much everything past games have offered, and then brings in several great new characters and one of the biggest stories in fighting game history.

    BluzBlue closes its storyline with one of the best episodes of the franchise. Another great game for 2D fighting fans.

    Central Fiction has the most gameplay content and the best gameplay of any title in the series. Longtime fans will be satisfied, and newcomers have more reason to jump in now than ever before.

    BlazBlue goes out in a blaze of glory, and although it lacks new ideas it certainly isn’t short of characters, game modes, or thrilling action.

    Awesome game. The characters are in depth the soundtracks are awesome and the story is definitely interesting if you have followed the seriesAwesome game. The characters are in depth the soundtracks are awesome and the story is definitely interesting if you have followed the series for the past 7 years. The mechanics are unique unlike any other fighting game and the game is for I must say. I don't feel like a character is overpowered or being owervused. The input lag is not bad probably about 3-4 frames which is average. Online has a legit lobby system where you can customize your avatiar. There are numerous colors for each character. I would have to say this is the fighting game of the year: Expand

    Very great game comes with years worth of content I should know I did a 100% completion quest with it since i am a fan of the franchise arcadeVery great game comes with years worth of content I should know I did a 100% completion quest with it since i am a fan of the franchise arcade mode alone racked up 2 months worth of my time since every characters arcade route had 3 acts each lasting 30 minutes or longer depending on the difficulty mine was hell, the story was great and had the best cinematics of the games however it falls short since like Chronophantasma the story isn't organized well and when you think you are done you realize you missed a lot of sub episodes that answer questions that popped up during you're playthrough also when you have played the previous entries of the franchise its very apparent that some of the game was rushed or cut which is why I gave this game a 9/10 and not a 10/10, there is so much more to cover that the game has but I have already wrote a novel here but overall I highly recommend the game to any fighting game enthusiast and fan of Blazblue even though they would already have it XD Expand

Y mas importante que eso, hacia años que no nos divertíamos tanto con un título de este género.

    Su online tiene fallitos, pero fácilmente solucionables con algún parche que arregle su código net. Y si no conoces la saga con anterioridad, este no es el sitio para empezar, ya que si no disfrutas su historia te estarás perdiendo el 60% del título.

    Si eres fan de esta saga, dudo mucho que le vayas a poner muchas pegas a esta entrega, que posiblemente se convierta en una de tus favoritas dada la calidad que ofrece en todos y cada uno de sus apartados.

Story mode is pretty interesting, but couldn't get my self to read all the dialogues and ended up skipping several parts. Online multiplayer mode is awesome btw, this game deserves a 8/10 Expand
