    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.

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.

    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 Full Review »

    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. Full Review »
