I am an avid Blazblue fan, so this review is obviously going to be somewhat biased. I have played tons of visual novels in my day and I can say this one is the best I have ever played. Aksys said this was going to be a big budget game and they were NOT kidding. Ill divide up my review so you don't have to slog through an entire paragraph.
Edited 7/9/14

Shipping/Box/Bootup:
Shipping was timely as usual (seeing as it was directly through amazon what did you expect), The box is really pretty with the typical colorful "Blaz" feeling to it. The game installed quickly with no updates.

Interface and controls:
This game includes FULL touchscreen support. By Using the touchscreen, there are many commands you can do such as swiping down for backlog, swiping left for autoread, and tapping to advance the text. It is really nice and should be standardized on all games imo. The interface is really sharp and futuristic looking. Menues and navigational screens are like blazblue, colorful, sharp... and well.. futuristic looking. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Like other VNs you know how you can take different paths to get different endings right? In this game you have to... Ehh, how do i say this without giving away spoilers.. You have to constantly make choices. After you make those choices you will happen upon an event that is a direct cause of the choice you made earlier. Depending on the events you chose, you will get one of many many endings. Ehh youll see. This is awkward trying to explain it without giving it away!

Graphics/colors/visuals/Music:
The graphics are incredibly sharp! Like holy crap it was jaw dropping playing something with such super vibrant and sharp colors on the vita !

I have not played a single BlazBlue game and know absolutely nothing about its universe. But XBlaze caught my eye because of its striking and beautiful art style. This is also my first foray into visual novels. I've always wanted to try out the genre, but never got around to it. I'm glad that XBlaze Code: Embryo could be my first.

I really enjoyed this game, with its beautiful art (which you will have plenty of time to admire as you progress), excellent soundtrack, and great voice acting. I also really enjoyed the story and characters, and found it to be very interesting and engaging. For those of you who know you won't enjoy this game, there's no convincing you. But to those who are familiar with anime, Blazblue, or the visual novel genre, or are on the fence about this game, I say give it a go as there will be a lot for you to enjoy in this game. This will make a great addition to your Vita (or PS3!) library and I'm really glad I picked this up.

First of all, this is a visual novel and the game does not have any major interactive sections. However, the game looks great from what I've seen so far and the description is interesting - A visual novel prequel to the fighting series. Play a new type of visual novel where it's not about the choices you make, but the information you gather!" Sound like fun - is it? Well, I did find the story interesting and compelling - but the interaction was not as much as I would have liked. You do read information via TOI and this changes the story - different but I wanted more.

The story is funny at times and does include several sections of "Fan Service" to put it mildly. The voices are all Japanese which for some is a plus - with english subtitles. I got a bad ending at the beginning of chapter six and found a walkthrough that helped me get past that in another play through.

Overall - I enjoyed the graphics and story and found the characters compelling. If you are a fan of the fighting games this one is a natural - I hope we get more of these - this one was very interesting and a solid addition to the VITA game library.

Xblaze Code: Embryo is an enjoyable visual novel, with an innovative decision system. The TOi system, as it's called, feels more integrated, since your choices reflect your interests. This makes it seem less artificial and more organic.

While the story and characters aren't groundbreaking, they're well done within the genre constraints. Character designs are appealing and the story fleshes out some of the franchise mythology. The terminology does fly fast and furious, but that isn't unusual for the genre, and even BlazBlue novices can follow along with a modicum of effort.

The downside is that the bugs aren't nominal, as they affect the save system, both the auto-saves and the manual ones. Freezing and even application shut downs are increasingly common as one progresses through the game. To be fair, if you don't mind shutting and restarting the application numerous times, they don't affect progression for the most part. The exception is a trophy that currently cannot be obtained, due to the utter inability to save during the relevant chapter. If you don't care about trophies or seeing every bit of content, it won't affect you, but if you like to 100% games, that's currently impossible. Otherwise, the game runs well, and the grammatical mistakes I noticed aren't dire.

Bottom line, if you like the franchise and VN's, this is a no brainer. If you hate VN's, nothing in this game will make you change your mind (pretty much every mainstay from VN's makes an appearance, complete with wholly gratuitous, albeit tame, fan service scenes). If you fall between those extremes, and are patient with save errors--and aren't a trophy hunter--this is a good, competent entry in the genre.
