BlazBlue is a 2D fighting game made by Arc System Works. I never heard of it until I saw a video called Top 10 fighting games by Gametrailers. Although it wasn't in the top 10 ( it wasn't released yet ) it was briefly mentioned. I got the limited edition of the game ( it includes 3 extra discs ) and started playing it. So here is the review.
BlazBlue Calamity Trigger review Blazbl15
Graphics - The graphics are amazing. Even though that the game is 2D, there are some 3D stuff during the beginning of the match. It shows some spectacular scenery before the match starts. Now the 2D stuff. The sprites are beautiful and the backgrounds are great. However the game is in HD and some stuff are cut off when you have a non HD TV and when played online, the 3D stuff lags a little bit.

Gameplay - The gameplay is just like any other fighting game today. You fight for how many rounds you selected. There are 6 buttons. A, B, C, D, Grab, and Taunt. If you like playing with the D-Pad on the Xbox 360 version, well its not that good. There is the cheat button or whatever it is that allows you to do some moves without the button combination. You have a super meter that allows you to do super moves or Distortion Drives. They are great. There is also an Astral Heat that allows you to do finishers when the opponent's health is 20% and you must win all of you're rounds except for 1. There is also a Barrier Gauge that does a block that is indestructible. There is also a Barrier Burst that does a burst. If you do it, you can't do Barrier Gauge until the next round. There are lots of modes in BlazBlue. Arcade, Score Attack, Story, Versus, Training, and Online. In online, when you pick a player match, you go in a group. There can be up to 6 people. The host gets to choose who gets to fight who. In ranked, you just search for a match. The character selection is small but have different abilities. There are 12 characters.

Story - I don't care. I heard that its great. You choose from the 12 characters and go in the story of them. You face off people in 1 round. The story is about Ragna and stuff. There are also tips from '' the boobie lady ''.

Music - The music is great. The music is by Daisuke Ishiwatari. It has a metal soundtrack with some SoulCalibur music. Awesome. It kinda disappoints me that there are some music that i don't like ( SoulCalibur ) but the music is still awesome. There is a soundtrack in the limited edition.

Overall - It it a great game. Fighting fans, buy it. Other people, buy it. The best fighting game of this generation ( IMO ).

Graphics - 9.7
Gameplay - 10
Story - 9.3
Music - 9.0
Overall - 9.5

It only has few parts with anime. The rest of them in the game besides the gameplay are pics on what is going on.

Good review but it's definately not my kind of game. (I liked the pics too, that really enhanced it)
Btw is there any difference between this game and Chrono Trigger?
