Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II is the third fighting game to come out on the 3DS since launch. SSFIV3D was a launch title, and a few weeks ago Dead or Alive: Dimensions was released. It's an odd thing to see three pretty big fighting franchises released within the same few months on a new system. It's already seeming over-saturated with fighters.

To start off, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II is a port of the 2D anime-styled fighting game BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. It contains the DLC characters and costumes, but not much else. I've played all the the previous BlazBlue games, on the console and handheld. I picked this game up figuring I'd enjoy it, as I have the others.

This game is missing a few key features though: it only supports local multiplayer. There is no online multiplayer (which both DOA:D and SSFIV3D have). There is no StreetPass or SpotPass functionality. For a fighter to maintain its longevity, multiplayer is very important. However, this isn't the only problem. It feels like a super-squished down version of the console title. The graphics aren't sharp and smooth, and the 3D is very gimmicky. It doesn't feel as genuine as some of the other 3DS games out there. Also, the only controller scheme is to use the d-pad for character movement and menu selection. Normally, I would be okay with this. However, due to the position of the d-pad on the 3DS, it is very awkward. I have been using the slider for most games on the 3DS because it is comfortable. I don't understand why the option to use either was removed. It's not a matter of whether or not the d-pad or the slider is better, it's a matter of having the option.
Another very odd thing is, the game is missing sleep mode on the 3DS. In the manual it says, "Sleep mode is not supported.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best gift she could ask for January 8, 2013
By Noah16
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this as a gift for my girlfriend who showed interest in the BlazBlue series from day 1 when she beat me 5 out of 8, yet was unfortunate to have any system to play it on. Then after some poking around, I found this, a BlazBlue game for 3DS, the only system she had. When I gave it to her on Christmas, she almost passed out in excitement. For a while, that's all she would talk about. I took a look at it myself, and seeing BlazBlue in 3D was absolutely awesome. I wish I could give this game 14 stars as a rating for the game itself, and the priceless reaction she had.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed March 20, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
I love fighting games and I always wanted a BlazBlue title. Although made for 3DS, I feel as if the developers made this game initially for the Nintendo DS and tried to port it over. The most annoying things is that there is NO SUPPORT FOR THE CIRCLE PAD!!!! Which means you have to use the awkwardly-positioned D-pad. try doing Tager's Astral Heat with the D-pad in a crunch. Other issues include:

- Unable to map buttons.
- Graphics too small
- Menu interface is clutered and confusing

At least you get all the characters from console versions

4.0 out of 5 stars Blaze Blue March 16, 2013
By Requiem
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
The game is awesome but the D pad makes a little hard to move around. why 4 stars because the game is amazing, the music is wonderful, the characters are great and the story is good. My 2nd favorite fighting game after guilty gear. If you like fighting games or 2d fighting games or if you like guilty gear, persona 4 area, or king of fighters get this game. However if you have big hands I would get it on the console. My hands are medium so I can beat the game

The game is great, reslly fun and a wonderful although confusing story. I would give it 5 stars but it lacks a multiplayer with only a local mode. It has plenty of other modes for you to play although online is online.

2.0 out of 5 stars Third Strike August 5, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
On paper, Arc System Works porting its smash hit game to the 3DS was big news. But the company itself apparently didn't think so. Right off the bat, you use the directional pad to scroll through the main menu and move your character, while the circle pad is only used for special functions and you can't switch between the two. Even if BB had the friendliest directional controls around, there's no excuse for restricting the option of analog control where it's needed most. Of course you can always choose the simplified "Stylish" controls; no one has to know--especially since the game only provides local multiplayer.

Another valid complaint is the absence of a sleep mode for the game for when the 3DS is closed. This not only renders StreetPass and SpotPass useless (unless you completely exit the game), but also drains valuable battery life from the system and even causes it to overheat. Not something you'd want if your playtime is frequently interrupted.

I'm calling that one Strike 2.

It's a real shame because beneath the surface, BB offers a solid gaming experience. Among the tons of modes you can grind through for in-game money and experience points, there's the strategy-based Legion Mode, a new spin on Survival Mode called Abyss, downloadable content from the console versions, a multimedia gallery and the most engaging plot in a fighting game since Bleach and Naruto. One can look pass the compressed graphics and sound, even if this is one of the few 2D-based 3DS games. But what really hurts is that it doesn't have to stay that way. Nintendo's patch for Mario Kart 7 proves that portable games can be upgraded and repaired through downloadable content. And we didn't even have to pay for it. But for this title, that ship has sailed.

This game is rated T for Teen: Violence, Adult Language.
