BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is the update and continuation of last years masterpiece, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, this little gem was crafted by the brilliant minds at Arc System Works. Fans of the original or fans of the Guilty Gear series will no doubt want to purchase this, if for nothing else at least for the story mode, you have never experienced a deeper or more complex story in a fighting game...the thing is, it's actually interesting...unlike Street Fighter(which I love, don't get me wrong).

You will get a lot for your $40, newly added Tutorial Mode, Challenge Mode and Legion Mode from the portable version are present. The tutorial is a great place to learn the basics if you are new to BlazBlue and it is the best way to learn the advanced techniques as well. The new challenge mode is pretty much like challenge mode in SFIV and SSFIV. There are 10 challenges per character, each challenge is comprised of several different tasks though, once you get to the advanced combos for a character of your liking it could take you a very long time to clear the challenges. These games are easy enough to play at a casual level but it will take a lot of patience and skill to hang with some of the people you will meet online.

There are 3 new characters right off the bat, Tsubaki is a Valkyrie of sorts, fights with sword and shield and has a drive attack that charges her moves for added strength, she is a very simple character to use and I would recommend her to newcomers. Hazama, better known to veterans as Terumi, is another story. Hazama is tricky but unbelievably good, his drive attack sends chains out at his opponent both for attacks and to rapidly close the distance between players. He is fast, dangerous and unpredictable...

Besides the old SNK King of Fighters games, it is my personal opinion that, only Arksys has been able to create such complex 2D fighting games; this developer took all the experience from the Guilty Gear series and developed BlazBlue, which is a game that requires a lot of skill to pull out all the combos that are available, thus is focused for the hardcore gamers. This brings the first big problem in Continuum Shift, there's too much content that was brought from the previous title, and it feels this game is just an expansion rather than a new game.

This version has a detailed Training and Challenge section that teaches newcomers how to pay the game like pros and the Challenge is an excellent benchmark for gamers, if you cannot complete at least 30% of them, then you know that when you play online your chances of winning are not that good. It is highly recommended that this ought to be the starting point for beginners.

The story mode is the best I've seen in any fighting game series, there's an average of 3 endings per character and it's very well written, although sometimes it feels it drags more than what it should. The narrative is really good but not the presentation, for instance there is a turning point that determine which ending you will see and then there's an option to save; but if you want to view the other branch of the story, then you need to back track and read it all over again; now, doing this for 14 characters feels like the game is punishing the player. One personal suggestion for Arksys would be to have the save point before the turning point.

Online mode is good but has a minor flaw, if the opponent withdraws the match, you won't get the points; instead the game will show a status of incomplete.

Blazblue is a wonderful, fast paced fighter. Like most fighters, players choose one of several characters from a large roster, each with their own style of play and special moves. However, Blazblue sets itself apart with it's crazy, unique cast of characters. Each has a very distinct feel to how they fight, making every character feel like an entirely new game to play.

In terms of personality and appearance, each fighter stands apart just as well. Hakumen, the mysterious knight. Hazama, the manipulative man with Michael Jackson's sense of style and grace and an internet troll's enjoyment of toying with others. Rachel, a young girl with a cultured disposition who is actually hundreds of years old. Entire paragraphs can be written about each character.

The story is surprisingly good for a fighting game. It mixes lighthearted humor with drama and enjoyable character interactions. Where most games shove their stories aside and carry just enough of it to justify why you have a ninja and a robot fighting each other, Blazblue manages to be intriguing enough to hold your attention and keep you going.

Not that it needs to. The game itself is refined and balanced. As stated earlier, each character is a new experience, though the simple basics of the game remain the same. Learning the ropes is easy, as the game includes a tutorial with it's own humorous dialogue narrated by a mocking Rachel. Part of the fun of any fighting game is mastering the characters themselves, so the simplified basics and thorough tutorial lets you get straight to the fun part.

Actually learning the characters is the challenge.
