The same kept fresh somehow.

The original Blazblue was a new and unique game. This title kept the same format of fighting but they tweeked every aspect about the game. They made the combo's harder to do and they made the moves not as easy to perform. While it may seem like it is for the hardcore fans, that is not the case. You can simply learn the game with the tutorials and advance tutorials they give you. The graphics are stunning to watch as two of the fastest characters go toe to toe with each other. While the street fighter franchise didn't change much except adding more characters, Blazblue Continuum Shift brings a whole different kind of game that'll keep you hours and hours hooked.

Fist of all i must say that i rented the ps3 version and was so sidsappointed the network is so slow and there is nerver any players online . so back to the game it's a pretty cool game's easy to learn for the new comers and the combos are easy to master all the characters combos are pretty similar in my opinion it's one of the best fighting games if you play online, the story though it can use a litte work but you get what you pay for so the game new lounched at 30 or 40 dlls not the full 60 like others, there is enough character to chose from and if you are hardcore the score attack will give you the challenge you whant if you like fighing games put it in your game fly list and check it out 1-10 it' an 8

Welcome to the zany world of Blazblue,where the start of the story
is in a hiearchial city called Kagatsuchi.there are other places,but
never mind.lets get into the good stuff!Blazblue heats things up with
a well worth it tutorial,just to show you the ropes of how this grit
your teeth grappler rolls.then Arcade,where you can dive right into
the madness,harnessing the power of a unique Beginner Mode,letting
you waste the opposition with killer combos,like the proffesionals!
Whip out powerful abilities called Distortion Drives that are unique for
each brawler,and the destructive finisher called an Astral Heat!learn
more combos to leave competiton in the dust with Challenge Mode,
and grip Kagatsuchi by it's hair in the white knucle Legion Mode!test
your mettle in Survival and keep the game going with an impressive
Online arena.or you can kick back and listen to the killer musical
score,all while enjoying cool artwork.Graphics are flawless and ah,
Music is again,killer!Character designs are wild,colorful and strong,
which is pretty important to the gameplay.Controls bite back and do
take a bit to adjust to without Beginner Mode.Voices are wonderful
but the speech does get kinda hard to listen to due to the language.
Blazblue raises the standard for fighting game finesse to the highest.
Cartoony battlers like your King of Fighters 12 or your Street Fighter,
can't quite hit the mark as well as Blazblue does.Listen,greatness has
Shifted in Continuum's favor.A must play!!SERIOUSLY!!
