"One of few ways to show support for Arc System Works fighters on Steam. An outdated version lacking netplay, I can only recommend it for the story mode."

About This Game

The first hi-res 2D fighter from the creators of the Guilty Gear series! BlazBlue is a traditional 2D fighter where two characters participate in a duel. The story of the game involves dissent and destruction among a powerful council, known unofficially as "the Library," which controls a great power that once saved humanity, but which now wields its power in protective, some say repressive, ways.

A round is called a "rebel" and one match can consist of one to five "rebels". To win a round, one player must either incapacitate the other by inflicting damage through various attacks to reduce their opponent's health to zero or by having more remaining health than their opponent after the clock runs out. Every character has a weak, medium and strong attack. Also every ones has a "unique" technique, called a Drive attack, which is different for each character.

Key Features
  • 12 unique batants to choose from! - Choose a character that represents your own fighting style like the lightning-fast Taokaka or the wickedly powerful Tager.
  • Drive your way to victory! - Use the unique Drive Attacks specific to each character to decimate your opponent. Depending on the character control the elements like wind and ice or even absorb the life force from your opponents.
  • Experience the beauty of high-resolution hand-drawn sprites on 3D backgrounds all in glorious high-definition.
  • Various modes - Arcade, Versus, Score Attack, Training, Gallery and a pletely fleshed-out Story Mode that tells the tales of each character.
  • Bonus Contents - 2 CD's worth of OST included with a total of 42 music!

I'm not a big fan of anime or 2D Street-Fighter type fighting games in general. That being said, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a huge exception and although I have only really scraped the surface of the game so far, I enjoyed every minute of it! Here are some of my observations:

-The number of characters to select from is relatively small but this is no doubt made up for with the fact that they are all so unique in playstyle and personality. Some of them even use their own energy systems to pull off combos, which really adds depth to the learning curve.

-While learning every characters unique play-style is difficult and time consuming, the basic controls are pretty easy to grasp. The combat seems to be mostly based on momentum and pulling off sick combos that hardly let your opponent hit the floor, but that is not to say that it's impossible to come back from a beating. I wouldn't recommend using a keyboard to play this game though. It is much smoother and enjoyable with a gamepad or preferably a joystick setup. I got by just fine using a gamepad.

-There is an overwhelming amount of content as far as the story goes. Every one of the characters has an interesting, sometimes silly, story line with many twists and turns depending on how you play.

-10/10 on the soundtrack, it's pure gold. It compliments the games style perfectly and is one of the best things about this game in my opinion.

-Currently, online multiplayer is non-existent and this definitely hurts the games replayability quite a bit. Thankfully there is a lot to do with the story and offline vs. bots, but I can't help but feel that the game is incomplete without online capabilities.

All in all, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a great game despite it's lacking of multiplayer, and if you are a fan of anime, you're sure to fall in love with it right away! :)

I'm not really a big fan of anime, to be honest. 'BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger', on the other hand, looks amazing and is probably (one of) the best looking 2-D fighter game out there.

There are 12 characters to fight with (or against). Not a very big number but at least every character is unique and plays totally different. The gameplay is great, fights get your adrenaline pumping and there are lots of special moves.

There are a few modes you find in every fighter like; Arcade, Time Attack and Story mode, so nothing special there. Also, there's no option to play vs friends online, which is something a game like this should have.

There are also a few things I did find weird, probably because I'm not into anime. Things like; a round is called 'rebel' in this game? and before every match a voice says "the wheel of fate is turning"...

In my opinion, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a great game but it wouldn't hurt if there was more content. Still, if you don't mind playing story mode or have some friends to play with locally, you can still have lots of fun with this one.
