At first, I thought this game would be a lot like any Mortal Kombat game, but it is completely different from that. The people fell more alive and their stories can tell you a lot about them. The characters and gamefly are great for anyone who is an expert at any street fighter game and other mortal kombat games. If you played games like dragonball z and naruto, the game is a 2D fighting style, but it makes up for it with vibrant fighters, detailed and colorful moves, combos that leave you shocked and proud of yourself for doing and moments that leave you speechless.

If you love the Marvel vs. Capcom series fighting action like I do then you will really enjoy this game. A good fighting game starts with controls, and this game defiantly has that. It doesn’t matter if the graphics aren’t awesome if you don’t have solid controls you don’t have anything. You can’t just mash buttons together, or keep doing same cheap move and over and over again and expect to win. If you want to do that then play one of those terrible newer “Mortal Combat” games. Each character is well balanced and has its strengths and weaknesses. It’s hard to find your favorite character because there all so evenly matched. Every Character has a counter balance that really makes the game interesting. I have no idea who these characters are in the game, but that didn’t even matter because the characters are perfectly balanced, and controls are some of the best I’ve seen in a fighting game. I hope that all 2D games in the future take notes, and learn from this game.

Aksys's newest fighting game is excellent for both newcomers to the genre as well as veteran fighters. "BlazBlue: Continuum Shift" is the follow-up to "Calamity Trigger" and expands on what was done in that game. Again the roster is small but memorable, with each fighter utilizing a different style in combat, making them all unique to play. There are some new additions to the roster this time, as well as a couple of new modes to play around, like Legion, where you take an army of fighters through a stage against enemy forces. Strategy becomes necessary in this mode to progress as you need to figure out which fighter to use, and which defeated enemy to recruit that will serve your own forces well. Also in this game is a Beginner mode, which enables newcomers to pull off incredible moves. Of course there is a Training Mode to help hone your skills, and a Challenge Mode to put them to the test. The graphics are bright and done in an anime style, and the controls work smoothly. This is definitely a game fans of the fighting genre should play, and those not predisposed to playing fighters should give it a try as well. The Wheel of Fate is turning, and it turns quite favorably indeed for the universe of "BlazBlue". Enter, and enjoy!
