This is a uniquely awesome game. Graphics/Visuals are the best in any 2D fighter around. Gameplay, although advanced, is fun. This is an excellent start to a new series of fighters. Online play has been, for me, lag free....unlike Street Fighter IV. If you like a bit of a challenge, I recommend this game. It is highly enjoyable. I had to buy it. You will see why!
This is definitely something everyone should play. The story's complex, the visuals are amazing, the characters are unique, and all fight differently, and it controls pretty well. The only complaint I have is it only has 12 characters. In short, this is the best fighter since Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, hands down.

This game reeled me in with the initial stunning anime graphics. I don't feel enough fighting games go in that direction. I waited for it in anticipation hoping for a game that rivaled Tekken.
Ultimately I was disappointed I tried playing the Arcade mode first. It was extremely choppy. I realized then that this was a game my friends could not pick up and just play with me. The flow to the fighting sequence was unavailable for the casual gamer. It occured to me that I might just be garbage so I went to do a little Training. I picked a couple different characters till I found one that worked for me. So I went to Story and tried my luck, but to my dismay I had to sit through roughly 10 minutes of story line before getting to my 1st single round battle. Another 5 minute interlude, before another battle occured, also just a single round. I got to the fourth battle before I lost and it just kicked me out to the story select. After the 30 minutes that was my BlazBlue story mode experience I was not thrilled about running back to it.
I cautiously moved the cursor to Online mode hoping for a different experience. Which is where i found something nice to say about this game. The Lag that is so much a problem for other fighters (tekken, ufc, soul calibur,etc) didn't seem to be a problem here. It doesn't mean it was fun. My first match up was against at lvl70 opponent ??!?. I seriously got PWNd by this opponent. I was not allowed to move He hit me once and pounded into the ground, letting me get up once before finishing me with and all to easy to use super combo which can performed by pressing down the R3 stick. The next round didn't go well either because he used the same move over and over and... well u get the idea. I joined another room that was filled with a bunch of japanese kids. Where the didn't even allow me to play. Unfortunately they were the only one's on.
So I placed the disc in it's packaging and shipped it off. Very similiar to CapcomVMarvel, but CVM ruled
