Good Condition, Not Original Case

Summary: The game came in good, working condition, but the case was just a typical DVD case with the games cover put inside of it, kinda disappointed, but oh well, for the price it was well worth it, and it plays well.
Summary: I'm not a fan of 2d fighting games but this is an exception because of the art and funny sub stories behind it. I'm terrible when it comes to online and vs someone besides computer. I enjoy this game as casual. but i kinda dont like that to unlock special characters like platinum, valkenhin, and makoto (my other fave) like 8 bucks each on the ps store. My friends and i just bought on and shared eachothers account on the ps3 XD but all in all i have yet to beat this game.
Summary: + Very nice animation. Despite being 2D, it looks great. Detailed backgrounds and cool effects. + Sufficiently deep combat system with multiple types of guards, combos that become progressively more difficult to chain as the number of hits increases, super bars, and a special bar unique to each character. + Challenge mode teaches players various combos. + Great character diversity. No Ryu/ken/akuma with the same moves.
Summary: folks who love good old hand drawn sprites in their fighters will like this street fighter alternative. the latest iteration brings more modes, charachters and extra balancing. but overall a great game to play.
Summary: BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is the refresh of last year's Calamity Trigger version, featuring new characters, revamping of the fighting system and a new continued story mode and great new console only additions. There supposedly will be another arcade update later in the year which brings in the console only characters (which are paid DLC add-ons) and further character rebalancing.
Summary: Had Blazblue Continuum shift for about a week now. You will love this game if you like Japanese anime and fighting. The best thing about this game is the characters, Each has a unique ability or (Drive move) Ranging from being able to freeze the enemy in ice, to magnetizing them so they fly towards you. The only constructive criticism I have for potential buyers is - The story line is engaging but very confusing, as I have not played the prequel to this game.
Conclusion: Lets face it, in todays games story is pushed to the back in favour of online gaming, we've all seen it in the Call Of Duty franchise and I think this is something that needs to be sorted, I like a good story to get my teeth into. Continuum Shift delivers a deep story along a range of characters, unfortunately it can be dull and boring adn the decent humour on hand just can't lift it.
