BlazBlue Continuum Shift II
« on: December 30, 2011, 06:50:44 pm »
I've been playing this game so much lately and decided to review it.
BlazBlue, incase you don't know, is a series of 2D fighters. It's also spiritual succesor to the Guilty Gear franchise so if you've played any of those you know what your getting.
anyways time to start my review

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II is a port/remake of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift for the Xbox and Ps3 that is available for the Sony PSP and Nintendo 3DS. The Graphics are a beautiful blend between 2D character sprites and detailed three dimensional backgrounds. The game boasts 15 playable characters including Ragna the Bloodedge, Noel Vermillion, and Jin Kisaragi. The PSP version includes Ad Hoc multiplayer but the 3DS version does not. The story is quite amusing and quite hilarious. Every character has a unique fighting style that makes them different from others and makes it to where you'll never get bored. The music is remarkable but not all that memorable.

Overall I give the game a 9/10
Score:
Graphics: 10/10
Music: 8.5/10
Story: 9.5
Gameplay: 10/10

Thanks for reviewing :D
I have this same game and I highly recommend it to everyone who likes fighters or is new in fighter genre. Thanks to "stylish mode", even newbies can do hard combos like more advanced players.
Music is beautiful, but because of UMD's memory limitations, character voices sounds damped. Graphics are beautiful, but backgrounds are missing some animations. BlazBlue Continuum Shift II is easily one of the most beautiful game for PSP. However, there is also chance of slowdowns in some parts (for example: the end of Ragna's astral and if there is two MU-12's summoning particles), but they doesn't affect much to gameplay.
There is also in game-shop, which allows you to buy extra things. For example more color variations, announcer voices and stronger characters.

If you are not familliar with fighters, give it a try ;3

E: Remember, 3DS version is just a port of PSP version!

she answered that there were too many books and
far too little time. And there she was absolutely right."

No problem  :fox-:): I think you reviewed it well. However, you could define characters more, so reader gets an image about them. For example: life sucking Ragna, freezing Jin, two gun shooter Noel, trolling Hazama, etc. :D

Oh yeah... i think that the characters are better balanced now, in the first version (can't remember the name of it) people like noel were overpowered, while ragna would be severly underpowered

(I assume you mean Calamity Trigger)
I agree characters are more balanced now, but I disagree with noel being overpowered. I believe Tager was (and maybe still?) overpowered and unlimited Ragna was so wrong. And Carl was joke.

Well... In the beginning of the game i used noel, and mauled people without any skill involved as i had just started the game, and i wasn't good at it at all, eventually i did get skills, but i was beating about 60% of people online who weren't using noel, tager, or nu, maybe that was my experiences, and the people did have skills

I typically use Hazama so I'm pretty good at getting a safe distance away from Noel.
