BlazBlue: Continuum Shift (Xbox 360)

 

Last year, the deep and wild 2D fighting of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger made the game a favorite among those who like their characters crazy and their action complex. BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is more of a refinement of the original game than a...

Super Blazblue? Continuum Shift looks to revive interest in Blazblue while improving many aspects over the first game, Calamity Shift. Does it have the chops to have your money again?

Challenge mode is almost exactly like the Trial mode from Super Street Fighter IV with a few welcome additions. Each trial is loaded one after another with no loading times in between, and you can skip to any trial with zero loading in between. Also...

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

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Review Xbox 360. Developed by Arc System Works Blazblue Continuum Shift is the latest game in the relatively new series stemming from Japan. Calamity Trigger released in the west in 2009 and so to see another game a ye...

Continuum Shift might seemingly pale in comparison to the Tekkens and Street Fighters of this generation in terms of realistic and 3D looks, but as a 2D fighting game it certainly delivers a ballsy well rounded and expertly crafted experience. Its...

The revival of the 2D fighter continues.

Rock solid mechanics; terrific 2D art and animation; extensive educational materials; numerous ways to enjoy the game; reasonably priced

Should have been a full sequel; tiresome anime jibberish; requires a good bit of work to get the most out of it

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.

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?

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.

In the world of fighting games, there's a very clear and distinct rift in the community. On one side are the hardcores. These are the guys who count individual frames of animation, know nine different variations of a character's juggle combos, and...
