GamesRadar: BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Review

GamesRadar writes: "With fighters and Gallery items to unlock, a progressive character-specific Story Mode (told via static dialogue scenes, but funny despite that), and lag-free online play in both ranked and just-for-kicks matches with players from around the world, BlazBlue has everything we'd want from a hi-def, 2009-vintage Guilty Gear. It's not doing anything revolutionary, but it's great to see that the evolution ARC System Works had put in place continues to roll on".

terrible review saying it doesnt do anything revolutionary

i read their street fighter 4 review got a perfect 10 so i guess street fighter is revolutionary even though it downgraded from alpha

Street Fighter 4 wasn't anywhere close to revolutionary. In fact, I can't think of a single thing it did that hadn't been done before (often better). SFIV is my biggest gaming disappointed of this entire generation so far, and it's the only game I bought brand new that I actually regret buying. I was bored of it within a week. Just didn't do it for me. Can't say my opinion falls anywhere in line with the ridiculously high reviews that game got. Oh well.

Nah, has nothing to do with that. It just got such rave reviews I expected something more. I didn't do enough to prove itself worthy of 60 dollars to me. I never feel the impulse to play it. I'd rather play SF III Third Strike, or even some of the Marvel/Street Fighter crossovers. SF IV was just plain vanilla, unimpressive. I actually started to resent the game because I'd expected it to be so much more than it was that I regretted purchasing it. It just doesn't have what it takes to be worth 60 dollars to replace the fighters I was already enjoying, and have been enjoying. Not in my opinion at least. Within a week of buying it, I couldn't help but sneer whenever I looked at it on my shelf, thinking "I paid 60 bucks for that?" If you enjoy it enough and got you hooked and you keep going back to it, that's awesome for you. I wish I could've enjoyed it that much, but I didn't.

This game hits a 9/10 for me. I'm not by any means a fighting games guru, but this one has me hooked. It's a shame that online the people play extremely panzy like with turtling and corner molesting, but that's not the games fault it's the communities.

The online net code, the great diversity in characters, the artistic style, the challenge, etc etc is all top notch. The only real "flaw" is that I wish it had more animated cut scenes instead of the walls of text dialogue that goes on, but honestly for a fighting game it had a great story line.

Simply put its the best fighting game so far this year for fans of the genre.

sf4 does not feel right, especially online due to the reduction of negative frames. sf3rdstrike was the best streetfighter bar none. sf4 feels like a step back, also the 3 frame throw system is just broke....jumpkick, block, land, then throw. worst tactic ever yet very effective in sf4.
