Summary: I've been playing 2D fighting games since the days of Street Fighter 2, Samurai Showdown and World Heroes. This game is what I've been hoping for, its like playing an anime, I think they've nailed it with this series.
Summary: Most fighting games lose their charm after you climb the initial tree and beat the final "boss." You play through the game with your top 2 or 3 characters and then pick a few others when you have grown tired of the repetition of your "chosen" character(s). This is where Blazblue differs. In order to see the full story, you HAVE to beat the game with EVERY character. In other fighting games the move set is basically the same.
Summary: After giving the Samurai Shodown Anthology a try, I had little hope for any fast action fighting game on the PSP. Then walking around Anime Expo 2010 I saw Aksys booth running a sale on this, picked it up. This game just completely makes a mockery of poorly ported fighting games by being an almost near perfect port from the big consoles. Granted it is a 2D fighter but still, this game is fast and fluid.
Summary: This is a must have if you're into 2D fighting games. It lacks the online fighting that it's big brother on the PS3 has, but still has everything else packed into it. This game is easy enough for button mashers but is even better for those that like a little bit of the complex combos that are in here.
Summary: BlazBlue Portable is a great way to have this game for travel. The only thing truly lost with it being portable is that I can't dual my friends easily. With none of my friend even owning PSPs this game looses a lot of value in it simple versus mode. Not being the biggest fan in fighting the AI. Though the Ai in this game is overly smart and even by me could be beaten.
Now you can take BlazBlue with you wherever you go in this great port!

Summary: Let me start by saying that I absolutely adore BlazBlue. It was easily my favorite fighting game of 2009 (possibly my favorite game period of 2009), and is right up there with the Guilty Gear series as my favorite fighting game of all time. That being said, I was overjoyed after hearing that a portable version of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger was heading for the PSP. The idea of being able to take BlazBlue with me wherever I go was an exciting thought.
Summary: A almost perfect port of the PS3 version. With added unlimited versions of every character, and legion mode, this is a great way to enjoy BlazBlue on the go. The combo system and solid gameplay transfers over perfectly. A must buy if you want a fighter on your PSP.
