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.Read more ›
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.
- Unable to map buttons.
- Graphics too small
- Menu interface is clutered and confusing
At least you get all the characters from console versions
