BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Review
2 June 2010
Excerpt: " BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger " is one of those games that has finally made it out in Europe after having been out in other territories for months and months. Despite the Guilty Gear heritage, is this game a Street Fighter rival?
Conclusion: Playing online games in this game will bring you right back to the old days of playing Street Fighter Alpha at the arcade. With the ability to have party's and spectators it just screams play me. I would only suggest a purchase if you are a hardcore fan though.
Summary: BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a decent, yet hardly original fighter. It does have a few issues that hold it back from the higher ranks of the genre, but overall it packs a serious punch and looks simply amazing.
Excerpt: Blazblue: Calamity Trigger is a 2d beat em up direct from the jaws of the Japanese gaming market. Although it is similar to the Street Fighter franchise, Blazblue: Calamity Trigger distances itself a little from the precise and sometimes geeky approach of its counterpart.
Excerpt: Learning curves are a bitch. And Arc Systems' learning curves are even bitchier. And when it comes to learning everything in an Arc Systems beat-em-up to play it competently then, well, the game is going to make you its bitch.
Excerpt: A game’s intro is supposed to get you excited by setting the tone, but all too often it just leads to disappointment. That’s not the case here though, playing BlazBlue looks every bit as good as its well produced anime-style intro.
Excerpt: Square Enix is hailed by many as the king of JRPG’s (Japanese role play games). If you forego the inevitable effeminate main characters and the usual Japanese insanity, Square usually come up with fairly solid games.
