Manufacturer's Description

BlazBlue is a new experience in 2D weapons based fighting making exceptional use of the Hi Res power behind the Next Gen consoles. The game is created by Arc System Works (Japanese developers of the Guilty Gear franchise). The 3D one-on-one fighting stages and 2D Goth-Anime characters are pure over-the-top Japanese. Fighters seamlessly combo from standard attacks into specials using the four-button control scheme (weak, medium and strong attacks). Every character also has a unique special attack called a Distortion Drive. Take the fight online in lag-free player ranked tournaments

Product Description

 


BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger by Aksys Games is a 2D one-on-one fighting game, which features an original cast (including many weapon fighters) and uses a four-button control scheme (weak, medium and strong attacks plus an EX button which makes your character perform unique special attacks). The fighting system is based around the ability continue combos when opponents are in a down state. On the defensive side, you'll have a number of ways of getting back up when down, so combo attacks don't pummel you. BlazeBlue employs the Type X2 arcade board and mixes 3D characters and 3D backdrops.

 

  • Brand new music, animations, backgrounds, and a fully fleshed-out story mode have been made exclusively for the console release
  • Train your skills online through ranked and player battles, create online lobbies where up to six players can battle each other or spectate from the sidelines to gauge their opponents
  • Take advantage of Barriers, Counter Assaults, Rapid Cancels, Barrier Bursts, Ukemi Tactics, Distortion Drives, and console-exclusive Astral Heat for all characters

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been waiting for BlazBlue for so long now I can't remember! However the wait was well worthwhile. It's probably one of the most fun fighting games I've ever bought. If you know what I mean by "fun". Firstly the controls are very easy to manage and there's not too many choices you have to make before you can get on with things. And once you do you won't look back. Like any fighting game you've got to get beyond the button mashing if you want to experience the full range of moves available. I started slowly with the training mode and got an idea of how to link moves together. Ultimately you have some extraordinary effects through the Drives. But I've yet to get an Astral Heat off the ground.

BlazBlue feels quite different from the Tekken and SF games I've played before. I don't know if it's because they're becoming samey-samey (though still good) or if BlazBlue is fresh because it is a new game. I'm no expert of the genre.

It got all the standard modes you'd expect - Arcade, Versus, Training, Online, etc. But it's also go a little gem hidden inside. There's an innocent looking choice called "Story". That's all it says "Story"! But when you select it you're off into a new experience completely. It's deep, intricate and plays exactly like an RPG Adventure game. You learn everything about the stories that brought each of the "really weird" characters to the 13th Hierarchical City (can't remember the full name, but it's quite Japanese). I won't spoil anything, but you also find out what BlazBlue is all about. The commentary is mixed between sugary sweet and dark anger. Very well put together.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to get into, very deep to master! 5 April 2010
By misty-O
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You can just jump in and enjoy brilliant graphics and well balanced fighting without reading any manuals or watching tutorial video.
It feels like playing in the anime and 'easy special' (right analog stick) enables very colorful combo attacks very easily.

Once you go to network mode and playing with other people online, it is a different league. You get good motivation to be better by watching DVD and learning all the tricks, which was not difficult at all and reveal the depth of the game.

I do recommend this game to both regular fighting game fans as well as RPG fans. Good to look at, great to play!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Slick and Sexy Street Fighter Replacement... 21 May 2010
By Ben Fox
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Now don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the Street Fighter series but it did somewhat pass me by, and by the time its most recent iteration came along I felt a bit 'out of the loop.'

Then I found this...

...a game which proved to be stunning on every conceivable level, from the fluidity of the animation to the stunning anime artworks which litter the narrative of the title.

Now for those who are looking for a long and consistently engaging story you may be slightly disappointment, especially as most of the humorously camp Japanese translation is supported often only by still images and occasionally slightly animated figures. At rare points there are full anime sections, but to give a hint of their rarity, even the opening sequence was a selection of still frames and text. Personally, these didn't phase me and allowed me to appreciate the artwork on its own, although if you're not a fan of anime or Japanese campy fare you may feel slightly underwhelmed.

But this if of course not what the game is about and is in fact the only negative I can pick out. The meat of the game lies in the explosive fighting being displayed on one of the most stunning 2D planes gaming has seen. The 2D visuals are incredible striking and crisp and hold up very well in this age of HD. Being the spiritual successor to the Guilty Gear series a long term fan will see immediate similarities between the protagonists and will be right at home with the combat system.

The fighting is swift, well animated and easy to execute. I've only played the original Guilty Gear on ps1 and the special moves involved ridiculous button combinations. In Blazblue they are all mapped to the right analogue stick making it all too easy to be pulling of spectacular moves.

5.0 out of 5 stars The anime fighter that became a surprise hit 12 May 2010
By dvd pen
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been interested to play Blazblue for a year now, since hearing positive responses from America, and can safely say it was worth the interest. Blazblue is an anime styled fighting game, that is able to grip beginners and experts to the fighting genre with its simple way of executing special moves (toggling the right analogue stick), to each character having their own strategic, fighting style, most notably the characters Carl Clover and Rachel Alucard.

The characters are all unique in design and personality, with some characters, however, tending to be stereotypically anime, like Taokaka's innocent stupidity or Noel Vermillion's broken self-esteem (probably to appeal to the 'otaku' fanbase,), which some may find childish or irritating, but nonetheless are all likable in their personality quirks and traits. While the game only features a small 12 playable characters, compared to the the mass rosters of Tekken and Soul Calibur, it is, however, able to give more time to develop the characters throughout the game's Arcade and Story mode, which is less apparent in other fighting games.

As with other fighting games Blazblue also has your Arcade, Versus, Training, Online, Gallery mode, but where it shines from others is its Story. You are able to play as all the characters, with some being unlockable, in their own unique stories that intertwine with the other characters' providing a fun, engaging, story telling method, as well as, branching story decisions, giving alternate endings and more replay value.

The soundtrack adds its own depth of beauty to the game's style, with its Japanese, Gothic, Techno, Heavy Metal, Opera feel, that entices the gameplay in its own distinctive way.

Overall, Blazblue is a unique and well played fighting game, with a highly thought out story, and striking soundtrack that should be experienced by PS3 and 360 owners.
