BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Review

GamerNode
7 August 2010
  • Excerpt: In the world of fighting games, BlazBlue sits firmly between the insanity of the Versus series and the strict strategy of Street Fighter, just like its spiritual predecessor, Guilty Gear . It allows for crazy, multi-hit combos, but still allows a deeper level of strategy where spacing, player position, and setups can be used. It’s a series that is still young, but has already carved its place in the genre.

  • Excerpt: The top down shooter is a genre cluttered with lookalikes and imitations. The formula has been used so many times, over and over again, you’d think the ovaries of that golden goose had long since dried up. However, just because a genre is cliché doens’t mean it can’t produce a gem every now and then, as Assault Heroes 2 demonstrates.

Expert Review

Video Game talk
19 June 2008
  • Excerpt: XBox Live Arcade is a sea of arcade ports and other unique, sometimes quirky games. A sequel being released for an arcade game is something of a rarity. However when the predecessor was a successful title, it really shouldn't such a surprise when a new title is released.

The Second Time Around

Cheat Code Central
5 June 2008
  • Conclusion: AH2 is still one of the best stick-shooters currently available on the Xbox Live Arcade. It takes everything that worked in the first game and makes numerous improvements that help to advance the series. There are some minor problems that keep this game from perfection, but all in all it succeeds at being an excellent follow up to an already great title.

Saving Progress
20 May 2008
  • Conclusion: There are already too many dual analog shooters out for XBLA and PSN, and this one sits near the bottom if the pile. It takes a lot for me to admit that, mostly because I have purchased and played them all (yes, even the sequel to Mutant Storm ). Assault Heroes 2 took what was good and buried it under needless additions, losing the simplicity that worked in the first game. Remember Smash TV ? You moved, you shot things. How do you screw that up?

Assault Heroes 2 Review

GameSpot
14 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Assault Heroes 2 follows the stereotypical path of the sequel to a tee. The additions read like a veritable checklist of expected upgrades--bigger levels, new vehicles, and different weapons--without implementing any drastic changes that would mess with the tried-and-true game design of the first. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing.
  • Pros: Surprisingly long, Ice gun is a blast to use, Almost perfect controls, More maneuverability leads to less frustrating deaths, Smooth online play
  • Cons: The behind-the-ship levels are poorly implemented, New vehicles are far too limited, Lack of different play modes
