    Overall, Blazblu Chronophantasma Extend is a must for anyone who is into their fighting games and this is right up there with anything on the PS4.

    Otherwise, BlazBlue remains the slick, fast, competitive and vibrant fighting game that we saw in previous versions.
  3. 90
    Even though it stands as more of a refinement over its immediate predecessor than a genuine leap, this latest entry in the BlazBlue series stays true to form by overwhelming players with a deliciously deep combat system, brilliant cast of characters and a veritable avalanche of content.

    Those who already own Chrono Phantasma can probably wait a bit, but if you’re new to the franchise, there is no better jumping off point than this game.

    Simply put, one of the best 2D fighting games for PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and even PS Vita consoles. A magnificent game in every aspect.

    While there's little to recommend upgrading from the PlayStation 3 version of the game, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend is a confident execution of a title that knows its strengths.

    It's the same brick wall of a problem Netherrealm Studios has been running into since Mortal Kombat vs. DC, of trying to add depth where it's mostly unnecessary.

    One of the best games I have ever played in my life. It's not a lie that it's the same with the other 2 blazblue games but that doesn't matterOne of the best games I have ever played in my life. It's not a lie that it's the same with the other 2 blazblue games but that doesn't matter at all. Blazblue has an amazing story and an interesting fighting system I manage to put 130 hours in all three of them and I enjoyed every single minute of it. The cons are that you have to play the other 2 blazblue games to understand the story and that the end of blazblue is not yet revealed so if you love the story just like me you will have to buy the next blazblue when it is out. All in all I think blazblue is a great game and a god damn cheep one if you ask me all three of them cost 60$ so if you should go out and buy this game now even if you don't like fighting games the story is more than enough for you Expand

    So many characters... Such great combo system... Fun fight mechanics... Terrific fighting game. The story mode, as with the other BlazblueSo many characters... Such great combo system... Fun fight mechanics... Terrific fighting game. The story mode, as with the other Blazblue games, is quite interesting and doesn't feel like a chore to get through. The graphics continue the Blazblue tradition of "sprite-based" characters, which is gives it its own unique visual charm. Even though this is one of my worst fighting games (in terms of skill, which I lack), it is an absolute blast to play. Expand

    For a visual novel style story mode and a fighting game, I could not ask for much more, it is competitive and challenging in this last aspect.For a visual novel style story mode and a fighting game, I could not ask for much more, it is competitive and challenging in this last aspect. On the other hand, the visual novel is great and I enjoyed a lot to go through all the arcs. The characterr design is great and there are a lot of them too. Maybe this is a review more based on the fact that this is my first Blazblue game played, but honestly, I think that is you already played any other of this saga, you could not expect actually bigger improvements on the gameplay, which is great.

I gave this game an 8/10 on Playstation 3 mostly because it didn't offer much to those that have owned the original version. However, this is the first game from the BlazBlue series on the Playstation 4, and if you love fighting games, you owe it to yourself to buy this game.

    For Playstation 4 and Xbox One owners, you're getting the definitive version of BlazBlue as the first title from the series. The gameplay is extremely flashy, stylistic, fast & engaging. The characters are all unique and very fun to play as. The visuals are beautiful and the music is absolutely fantastic, easily being one of the best soundtracks in a fighting game.

    The story mode takes some getting used to, but it's engrossing once you do. It's very lengthy, being about as long as a Zelda game in length, and very well voice acted.

    One of the best parts about this game is that it has an excellent tutorial mode that explains pretty much everything you need to know about not just the game, but fighting games in general. It explains what a mix-up is, it explain what a wake up is, it explains the advanced stuff of a fighting game and the challenges mode teaches you how to do the combos for each character.

    There really isn't much wrong when it comes to this game other then the balancing being a bit skewed, and the story being a bit tough to swallow, but overall, Chrono Phantasma is a fantastic game and one of the best 2D fighting games on a console to date.

    Unfortunately Blazblue series is marking time in one place. Its like every-year FIFA which has minor changes but same game anyway. PS4 editionUnfortunately Blazblue series is marking time in one place. Its like every-year FIFA which has minor changes but same game anyway. PS4 edition doesn't have a technical update and looks dissappointment. Still repetitive still boring soundtrack. If you play Blazblue CS Extend you definitely can skip this game. Expand
