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!

If you're a fan of fighting games, you should definitely play BlazBlue series. BlazBlue is a fine series with a complicated story. Story itself is mainly told through images and voiced text, there are no 3D cutscenes or anime-style movies. The main Gameplay is very complicated and takes a long time to master, however BlazBlue Calamity Trigger is a Single-Player Only title. If you're looking for competitive multiplayer, you should buy Continuum Shift version.

I'd highly recommend Calamity Trigger to all Fighting Games fans simply because of the amazing story and intriguing gameplay. Soundtrack is one of the best too and you would be getting it for free, what a bargain!

Actually online battles can be enabled, but through the old Games for Windows LIVE overlay. There's a guide somewhere explaining it. Leaving that aside, this is one of the most challenging and entertaining fighting games I have played. The Drive attacks are so deal-breaking, an instant approval. That's one of the things that make this game unique. Second, the Score Attack mode. Do not let it fool you, this mode has a difficulty setting higher than Nightmare, so prepare to get killed. And finally, the story. So captivating, it has an overlay and mechanic proper of VNs, and dont forget Mrs. Litchi's tips.

9.9/10
P.S.: If you manage to activate this game in GFWL, you'll realize that this game will count as a XBOX 360 game, that's because it's a port from the console version, featuring cross-platform functions. The online matchmaking is also affected by it as well.
P.P.S.: This game also includes hyper buffed versions of the characters known as "Unlimited characters".
P.P.P.S.: In case you're inclined for GFWL online battles, let me know.
