I have played a lot of video games but this one just missed the mark for me. Another user said that the game play was hard but i found it to be very simplistic. After about five min i training i jumped online and was able to perform a massive combo by pressing three buttons and down,forward,triangle ... ? I love 2-d fighting games but this one was no fun. I say if your looking to rent a 2-d fighting game find another. i felt like i wasted my time waiting for this game and was disappointed when i got it. SSF4 is a great choice or wait for Marvel vs Capcom 3!

I had this game out on Gamefly at the same time I rented Marvel v Capcom 3 from blockbuster. Let me tell you: if you want a 2d fighter, definitely go for MvC3.

My sister and I played BlazBlueCS for about 20 minutes. We were disturbed by the characters, first of all, for two reasons: 1) they were actually distracting to the point where they were more entertaining to look at than to fight with; and 2) we could pick out characters from Guilty Gear and GGX2 that these characters were very similar too. It was no where nearly as fun as Guilty Gear though.

The fighting was entirely too complicated. I couldn't make heads or tails of the controls, and I like to just pick up games and go. And after coming off of the high of Marvel v Capcom, it was just not fun at all to play BlazBlue. The simplicity of other fighters is nowhere to be found here.

The rendering of the characters and the backgrounds was excellent. The orchestral scores for this game are absolutely immaculate as well. But you are not playing this game for those aspects alone. This game would make a better anime, in my opinion.

We went through the entire character wheel, and immediately repackaged BlazBlue and got ready to ship it off. After that we popped in MvC3, at which point we played it for the next two and a half hours.

I rented this game and played it for about 20 min. Although the music in the game is incredible the game play is kinda slow and not fun. I think guilty gear x2 was way better and I'm disappointed I rented this game.
