Story
Several years after the end of the Second War, multiple branches of the Librarium reputed to command a force as powerful as an entire nation’s army were suddenly and utterly destroyed. Inexplicably, the hidden cauldrons within each branch were also completely decimated. The few survivors spoke in hushed, shaken tones of a single man who had
appeared out of nowhere, cutting down all in his path.

Main Game Features

Master a whole new way of fighting with Relius as he uses his marionette, Ignis, to turn the tide of battle.
  • Enhanced Story Mode: Relive and rediscover the events that took place in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger or venture forth into one of four all new story scenarios!
  • New and Revised Game Modes: Take on the strongest of foes in Unlimited Mars Mode or fight your way to the bottom of Abyss Mode!
  • Fully Revised Combat System: All characters, new and old, have been thoroughly rebalanced and armed with all new strategies and combos to take your game to the top!

Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend is by far best fighter I had Played on PC. It has moments and it's not perfect to say the least.

Likes
- The ost is Godlike. There isn't a single track I dislike. I find myself just listen to the music alone.
- Stages are graceful appeal to them. Some best stages I seen in fighting games. None of them are boring.
- GamePlay is fun and but same time somewhat tricky you can get hang of it rather quick. Don't worry learning combos Challenge help me a lot. I cleared all of Hazama, Ragna and Jin in Just the first Hour or so.

Dislike
- There really Bad frame rate issues at first I had. I mange but still at times it frame would drop like 33 or speed up to about 71. Luckly I got stick around 55 to 50.
- The Story is a hot mess. Sorry. People say it's great...it's subpar at best.

Blazblue is an amazing game.
Great mix of fighting game and visual novel.
Visual aspects are superb (backgrounds, characters both in fight and in dialogues), intriggy story (true, a little bit confusing) and A-W-E-S-O-M-E soundtrack. Of course, lots of great fighters, story modes, unlockables etc etc...

A classic...and a good warm up for Chronophantasma! :)

Pretty good port, netcode is much better than USF4.

Its not BBCP, but its a start of getting more games here on steam (looking at you GGXRD).

Would recommend if you're into fighting games.

Max FPS 61, 1920x1080p (not sure if you can go higher)

Well, here it is. The second chapter in the Blaz Blue series.

Pros'

+ Decent net code.
+ Enjoyable story mode, with endearing characters, and well written dialogue.
+ Fairly balanced, even the low tier characters can be viable if you understand the gameplay mechanics.
+ Abyss and Unlimited Mars modes are both fun for casual and hardcore play, if you're looking for some single player action outside of Arcade and Story mode.
+ Lots of content.

Cons.

- Price tag. I can see why people who already own this game wouldn't pick it up for $25 - $30.
- Unlimited Mu-12 is a cheap ♥♥♥♥♥.
- Watered down acheivements. Seriously, where's all the character specific acheivements at?

If you haven't played this game yet and enjoy a good fighting game, a dungeon crawling experience masked in a fighting game, or some good old fashioned visual novel storytelling, than do yourself a favor and pick this up.

I was only 9
I loved Hazama so much
I mained him since CS1 and owned his dakimakura
I pray to Hazama everynight, thanking him for being A tier
"Hazzamer is love", I say, "Hazaman is life."
My dad hears me and calls me a scrub
I knew he was jealous because he played Noel
I called him a noob
He slaps me and sends me to play Skullgirls
Im crying now, my hands hurt
I lie in bed, it's cold
Suddenly, I feel a warmth and Gluttony Fang tune hits my ears
It's Hazama
I'm so happy
He whispers in my ear, "Who-ho-hoah there!"
He grabs me with his Ouroboros and puts me in front of my PC
I'm ready
I spend the next ten hours wrecking Hakumen
He won't stop spamming 6B
It hurts so much, but I do it for Hazama
I can feel my thumbs blistering and my eyes start to water
I do a CCCCC air spam
I want to please Captain Hazzamer
He laughs and Astral Heats Hakumen
My dad walked in
Hazama looked him straight in the eyes and said, "Git gud."
Hazama micro dashes through my window
Hazzamer is love, Hazaman is life

As an introduction, I am a veteran player of Guility Gear and Blazblue series. I've won numerous tournaments in all versions of Blazblue and held the rank #1 spot for several characters on Xbox live. As i write this review I will be as neutral as possible.

Blazbue is a very unique fighting game franchise, many call it the sister of Guility Gear. Blazblue is an air dasher, high speed, combo heavy fighting game. The game is very visually satisfying and has one hell of a soundtrack. People who have a history in Street figher, SoulCaibur, DOA, Tekken, etc. Tend to somewhat stray away from Blazblue. The game sets itself apart by its core engine mechanics and unforgivable mistakes.

But fray not, the game is very newcomer friendly. Unlike many other fighting games, Blazblue Extend has an ingame voice over tutorial that guides you step by step on EVERY single game mechanic while teaching you combos at the sametime. After you go through the tutorial, you are encouraged to try "challenge mode." But don't get the challenge mode in this game twisted like the one in Street fighter or Street Fighter x Tekken.

90% Challenge mode combos in this game actually teach you Basic "Bread and butter" combos that you will be using during live play. Even high level pros use some of the bread and butter combos you will see in challenge mode. They are very practical and meter efficient. Once you feel comfortable training and getting your challenge mode combos down you can take the fight online.

Online BB extend has a few differences from the console. You CANNOT turn off your ingame mic and you CANNOT see your opponents ping levels before the fight. The only way to estimate the lag is by actually engaging into the battle. With that being said, there are players from all over the world playing online. If you wish to play in player matches simply name your lobby in the general area of where you live. For example, I live in South Carolina so I name my lobby "Southeast USA", that way people can get a better estimate of the ping to be expected.

But for the sake of keeping the wall of text down, Blazblue is a great fighting game franchise for newcomers and experienced fighters. You will enjoy the incredibly unique and flashy combos by all of the characters. The game also has an interesting and yet paradoxal story which you will have fun trying to figure out on your own! Also check out the blazblue anime online if you have a hulu subscription.
If you have an specific questions regarding the game, you can reply to my review or send me a message on steam.

EDIT: Mics can be muted or turned off ingame now.

It doesn't matter if you're a veteran of fighting games or new to the genre; "BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend" will provide lots of fun!

This version has TEN game modes to keep you occupied for a long long time. Between them, it has an top-notch (and very funny) Tutorial for all skill levels; the traditional Arcade mode; Versus (including vs CPU); Score Attack (compete for the leaderboards); Unlimited Mars (fight tougher versions of fighters at the highest difficult level); Training mode; Challenge (combo practicing); Abyss (fight waves of enemies and upgrade your character); Story (from BlazBlue Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift) and Online (ranked, unranked and team battles).

The BlazBlue series has one of the most complex and deep stories ever. If you watched the anime (Alter Memory) and you're considering purchasing the game to discover what the fuss is about, but don't know nothing about fighting games, don't be afraid. BB:CSE has a beginner option that let you press one button to perform an special. It makes the things a lot easier for newcomers and with more practice you can abandon this option to play more seriously.

BB:CSE isn't the most recent version of the series, but it's still worth it. Even with this pricetag I can't recommend enough. You'll get the bang for your buck and will experience one of the most deep and satisfying fighting games ever created.

*As its been announced that Chrono Phantasm Extend is coming to PC, I thought I'd make this review*

This review is lengthy and If you don't have time to just sit and look through it, read a shorter condensed review.

Rare, very rare is it for me to find a game that actually will allow you the chance at a tremendous gameplay and story. Myself, I've never liked the 2d fighting games, but Blazblue really helped change that if only because of its incredible story.

One thing to note though: My original intention for me buying the game was for the story, but the fun gameplay and character variety changed that.

Story wise you won't find much that can compare to some of the complexity that Blazblue is. If you played the original Blazblue and didn't look up anything to understand what was happening and trial-and-error it yourself, you are a trooper. The story is so complicated at times that its hard to distinguish the "right" path from the "wrong" path. Some people take this either good or bad.

For this installment however, they changed the story portion around a bit as its not as complicated to figure out. They also added a bonus for people who did (or didn't) play the original Calamity Trigger. However, that story was reduced in depth and for those who played it, will notice a lot of dialouge change. That however wasn't a bad thing since it gave us a better grounded way to understand this game.

One of the major perks I found with this game's story: It's entirely voice-acted. EVERY single character has a unique voice that's different, they all have a personality, and MY WORD does Hazama sound bloody awesome. Sometimes I wish that Ufotable would just take the dialouge, then animate it into glory. For most of the between people dialouge, I just sat back, closed my eyes, and after the end of their talking, casually hit the A button to proceed to the next. It's so much fun to understand this story.

A flaw to this game however (and to MANY people) is that the story is quite frankly, complicated as stated before. Each characters story takes place at different set, key points, and if you don't have a guide on you, your gonna have a hard time pieceing the story together. To newcomers however I say --- DON"T GIVE UP!!! There is a magnificent story behind this game and you'll miss out if you don't work to understand!

Gameplay is the typical 2d fighting with various moves that are unique to each character. However, they all have a unique way of playing style, feel, reach, and all add some sort of variety to prevent that "stale" air of copy and paste fighting characters. That itself helped me like it more.

For those who know it, theres nothing like pulling off a Astral Heat against an opponent. Oh, the satisfaction.

A great game that shouldn't be missed, wonderful story, characters, completely voiced, hilarity, fun gameplay, and more.
