This review is from: BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Xbox 360 Game
Pros: Diverse Character Roster
Gorgeous 2D Art
Surprisingly in depth story mode
Cons: Not that much new content if you own BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
Character Roster is 'small'
Other Thoughts: BBCS is akin to Super Street Fighter 4 - an iterative evolution on a solid game that adds some much needed tweaks and polish.
For newcomers to the series, this is an excellent place to start - the character roster, while not large as many games, exhibits a breadth and depth seldom seem; Each character possesses a unique "Drive" system that completely changes the way they play - one character has a wide array of pouncing attacks, while another slowly builds a curse upon their opponent, another controls the wind and still another can summon swords around the screen - and that's just a sample. The roster is fairly well balanced, each character is a truly unique experience - and a well built tutorial and challenge modes help get you up to speed on the intricacies of gameplay.
Graphically, the game is gorgeous, with beautifully animated and well detailed sprites as well as 3D rendered backgrounds, BBCS is visually quite pleasing as well.
Recommended for any fighting game fan.
