DJ Killzown Jones of RGN writes, "BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma does what a sequel should in that it fixes the problems of the previous titles in the fighting franchise while keeping what made the series great. This being said, there is nothing in this title that makes it feel like a sequel. The series hallmark gameplay is still there and as fun as ever with plenty of modes to throw-down in, but nothing that really makes it stand out from its predecessors or other fighters on the market. There are other fighting games, however, that have not addressed the problems with their game and the lack of content in their series overall and Arc System Works deserves credit for that. If you’re a fighting game fan and have never tried a BlazBlue game you are in for a treat and veterans to the series – get ready to “Rebel” once again with this definitive entry into the Blazblue series."
