BlazBlue: Continuum Shift


It's time for the rebel; again. When the original BlazBlue landed last year it was met with critical acclaim, but was also overshadowed by the release of a certain brawler...

Characters feel unique ; Challenge mode ; Superb online model ; Gorgeous visuals

Legion mode lacks replay ; Roster does feel small

Gamertell Review: BlazBlue: Continuum Shift


Arc System Works is known for creating intricate, 2D fighters, and in June 2009 it released BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, a spiritual successor to the Guilty Gear series of games. Now, a little over a year later, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift has blasted...

New beginner mode makes it easy for anyone to play, some characters have been rebalanced, Legion, Tutorial and Challenge modes have been added, DLC characters will be made available, lots of gameplay modes, trophy support, story mode has multiple...

Some bosses are beasts, even in beginner mode and easy mode difficulties, which may catch people offguard, initially. Only comes with three new characters on the disc

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift


In case you hadn't heard, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger - a new fighting game from the dudes that brought us Guilty Gear - was released. Also, for those who missed it, it was pretty damn good. It had a lot to offer for casual players with its multitude of...

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is a worthy upgrade from Calamity Trigger, and is probably the best fighter on the market for catering to casual and competitive players alike. Here's hoping a new version isn't announced in two months.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift


I consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable about video games, but I've got to admit - -I've only just heard of the BlazBlue series. Hell, until a friend corrected me, I pronounced it as "blaze-blue," cause you know, that's logical and all. Imagine my...

I was going to give BlazBlue: Continuum Shift a higher CHEATfactor score, but then I saw that one of the listed cheats was to see the credits, which requires you to beat Arcade mode in a certain way to see them. Really?

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift


In the world of fighting games, BlazBlue sits firmly between the insanity of the Versus series and the strict strategy of Street Fighter, just like its spiritual predecessor, Guilty Gear. It allows for crazy, multi-hit combos, but still allows a deeper...

An excellent fighter for both fighting amateurs and steeled veterans. The numerous tutorials, challenges, and inclusion of the Beginner's Mode will help newcomers, while the deep fighting system will keep fighting fans busy.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Review


Following the successful release of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger a couple of years ago, Arc System Works releases its second installment in the BlazBlue series that features not only new characters but improved gameplay mechanics as well. For hardcore...

For a game that is $39.99, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is a great purchase for gamers who love the fighting game genre. Despite the small cast of characters that are playable, there is an option to add three more characters to the cast via purchasing the...

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Review


Note: We normally don't put any catch-up reviews (reviews on games that came out over 1 month ago) on the main page, but SO many people requested this, and I just had to do it. Apologies on the delay

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is about as excellent as fans would expect. If you liked the first, there's almost no chance you won't like the sequel; the only question - as I stated before - is whether or not you think it's enough of an upgrade to warrant...

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift


The sequel to 2009's anime-flavored fighting game, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift introduces three new characters, added play options, more stages, and other refinements. Those new to the series can acclimate themselves to the combo
