Game Plot :
Once human beings suddenly appeared "Ki beast" was forced to fight. Was probably a matter of time due to the overwhelming power of the human race perish. At that time, six people appeared Yingjie. They force the old "magic" conveyed to humanity, and people it brings together the science, universal power "surgical procedure" had been completed. A New humankind has acquired the power to begin with Yingjie Ki counterattack against the six animals, the ends of the fierce battles, overthrew the beast finally Ki. Battle later in the "War Mage War I" called six they are "Heroes 6" was there to be handed down as a. Fabricated in large quantities in order to exercise the surgical treatment of this war "written Mage" to manage "world nothingness information control mechanism (control mechanism)," said the organization was formed. Control mechanism under the rule of the world, humans have got used to the new force, made a rapid development in all areas. Then the reconstruction of the world, and large pre-war appearance had greatly changed.
Flow of time from the start of decades of authoritarian rule by the control mechanism, the world was mainly by surgical treatment has led to a significant gap between individual capacity. Nori Hatsu discontent over the world, conspiring to eventually secede from the control mechanism "Federal gadget Starling" by "the Second War Mage (gadget war Starling)" broke out. This was the first war between humans by using surgical techniques. Hashi Kono By the end of the civil war that devastated the federal Gadgets Starling, control mechanisms result is the "other side of the blade to smithereens annihilation" was to make the world better idea. Gadgets Sada Tadashi years after the civil war Starling, a startling incident occurred. Control mechanism, a branch of the armed forces to have a force equivalent to one of the country, the man suddenly appeared, which of the following people and destroy them.
Some believe the kind dead and buried, but fighting games in 2D quality jostle recently on our home consoles. No platform is immune from this tidal wave. While the ancient mythical titles from Capcom and SNK us back for download on PSN and Xbox Live, the two adversaries always we also offer new episodes of their popular franchises with Street Fighter IV or King of Fighters XII for example. The Wii is not soon forgotten because host Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, a crossover that more promising … The newest studio Arc System Works would have passed almost unnoticed in these conditions. Indeed, Battle Fantasia, their previous baby was not really enthusiastic fans of Guilty Gear. These should be complete by cons filled discovering BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. Graphically impeccable, offering gameplay nervous desire without being inaccessible to beginners, this game is simply a regular little nugget whose only fault is not out for the moment on our soil.
Expect to receive a slight shock when you launch your first part of BlazBlue: you are likely to gape at its beautiful graphics. Those who swear by the 3D will certainly find fault but when they speak in bad faith. Indeed, the combatants may be simple but sprites are drawn with incredible finesse and animated quite remarkable. In turn sets win in depth and we offer special backgrounds live. Generally, the art direction is impeccable and each character has a design and gestures quite unique. Certainly the most fastidious criticize the game does offer a dozen fighters. It must however keep in mind that this is the first episode, hopefully, inaugurates a new series. Also add to that the fact that most fighting games usually offer several characters sufficiently standardized so that each of the twelve players in BlazBlue seeks ownership of its own. One could spend hours detailing attacks unique to each fighter, but the specificity of BlazBlue also give you the means to defend yourself effectively. You can reduce the damage and block shots simply backwards.
Do not abuse it as you gradually fill and gauge Libra Guard located at the center of the screen. Once the latter is full, your character falls into the cabbage briefly, leaving just enough time for your opponent to launch a devastating combo. It is ultimately much better to try a Instant Block backwards battery when you receive a blow, you’ll be able to respond much more quickly. It is finally possible to invoke a powerful shield simultaneously pressing the small and medium shots. Once again we must not abuse this technique gradually empty your gauge Barrier. You are in fact much more vulnerable once that it is dry. You do not have to suffer the combos your enemy without fighting back, you can very well start a cons-attack while blocking his shots or outright instantly emptied your gauge Barrier to create an explosion that will recede. In short, the technical possibilities of BlazBlue we promise already fighting some very tempting.
Over the last decade, the Guilty Gear saga has become, in his own right, one of the clear references of 2D fighting games for all fans of this genre. It is therefore not surprising that the first draft of its creators in HD lift buzz. However, Arc System Works was faced with the loss of rights to Guilty Gear (which came into the possession of Sega) and were forced to create this new saga. BlazBlue Calamity Trigger is undoubtedly a game very true to its roots , but nevertheless this is a game devoid of innovation, if it refines the formula of its predecessors and brings many fresh ideas to the genre. The game from the start puts at our disposal a staff of 12 wrestlers, each more extravagant. This figure may suggest that few characters compared to other titles in the genre, but for anything like that. Here each character is a world apart, with their advantages and disadvantages to others and you will have to spend hours if we can master it in depth. The character designs are more varied than, finding a girl from a strange samurai vampire legend. While many designs we sent directly to that seen in Guilty Gear (Did anyone not notice the resemblance between Ragna / Sun or Jin / Ky?), These have a much more distinct anime style.
Entering the field playable, each character has a power or "drive" which is largely based on his fighting style. The techniques used these powers are executed using the D button and in some cases their use will be linked to special factors such as energy meters only of the character. To give some examples of these skills, Ragna is capable of draining the life of his rival, Carl can manipulate the puppet which has been on and Tager can electrify his opponents and then use magnetism and lure them against himself.
Then there are also special moves for all characters, with which we can inflict large amounts of damage to our rivals in exchange for consuming part of our special bar. Astral also have the Heat, some very spectacular special moves that ended up with our opponents. As to the unfairness of the Astral Heat can only be used under certain conditions, namely: being in the latest round of combat, have the special bar at 100% and that our opponent has less than 20% of their lives. We will also have movements that allow us to cancel our techniques in half of these and many others who give the game a playable almost endless depth. BlazBlue is certainly a frantic game which rewards the daring and imagination when creating combos. True to this philosophy and to avoid fighting too slow and cumbersome, the system will penalize players who engage in excess to flee his opponent, reducing their defense considerably.
Graphically, the game offers a large and detailed sprites in high definition with a more than correct animations. The scenarios mixed elements in two and three dimensions achieved a finish that really looks good with the characters. So BlazBlue enacts a two-dimensional visual spectacle with which we had dreamed sure many more than once.
Stresses in the sound aspect of music, which as in Guilty Gear, is provided by Daisuke Ishiwatari. The topics are mainly influenced by metal music, with rhythms generally rapid and conclusive that fit perfectly with the fighting that gives this title. A note also that the dubbing of the characters can be selected between Japanese and English.
We must mention the great care has been put into the conversion of BlazBlue to consoles, which is evident from the introductory video of the game, inspired by the popular animation studio Gonzo. A traditional arcade mode, versus, and training we have added a full story mode, a gallery, the option to watch replays of our best fighting online mode … On the latter should be noted that works like a charm, one of the best case (or best) of its kind in the genre. The game also has an elaborate story, which although not the main attraction of this type of game is never over.
In summary, we have a title you can see that Arc System Works has made every effort. The result is a great fighting game, finishing with a visual and sound that makes him an exponent of its kind and deep gameplay that will give hours and hours of fun if we can master all the possibilities BlazBlue offers. All this makes for a real must for any fan of the genre and a title that you should try at least once every lover of good games.

The plot in fighting games is not the most important, but the authors found BlazBlue surprise here. Listen. Once in the world it is a product of Darkness and bring mankind to its knees. But the world was saved by six characters, they have helped people create armagus, the synthesis of magic and technology. After the war, to control the world by force armagusov was founded Novus Orbis Librarium (NOL), which eventually led to a stratification of society into those who could use armagus, and those who could not. The conflict between sectors of society will soon escalated into a civil war, in which the NOL persevered, but entered as a proactive measure the death penalty for insubordination. And suddenly, after a few years after the Civil War, one of the branches of Novus Orbis Librarium was destroyed in one day. This was done Ragna, the protagonist of the game. Hoping to stop the terrorist NOL appoints head for his fabulous prize. It is believed that Ragna has armagusom incredible force, whose name is Azure Grimoire, or BlazBlue. And now, NOL, resistance and other forces are willing to do anything to get him.
Summarizing, we can say that the game is definitely a success. What the waiting fans of the genre from the embodiment of Guilty Gear on the next generation console, they received BlazBlue. For beginners also will be much easier to start from scratch than to try to understand the next incarnation of a long past evolution of the "old" fighting games. Most likely, this is precisely the trick is Arc System Works: to attract new fans, not scared of old.
Although in terms of staging, size and above all, number of frames of animation cannot compete with the characters of KOF XII’s sprites BlazBlue have that personal touch and charisma that marked Arc System can give all your creations. That yes, making the visuals of BlazBlue across a delight for the eyes are undoubtedly the 3D scenes, built with a master such that fuse with the two-dimensional sprites and other elements in each decorated in a way never seen before now, all thanks to using a color from the texturing and the inclusion of specific pieces 2D. The irrefutable proof of such a merger is that, having BlazBlue in static displays, gives one the feeling that the scenarios have been developed in two dimensions, like the sprites. In short, if we put aside the KOF XII sprites (which although not shown at low resolution breathtaking stop), we can certainly ensure that the graphic of BlazBlue is unparalleled in its genre.
Regarding the soundtrack, here there is another color. Following the demise of the Neo Sound Orchestra longed by SNK, and corroborate with SFIV that musical talent left Capcom composers after the launch of Street Fighter Alpha 2, Daisuke Ishiwatari is ineffable as the last great master composer as BSOS that fighting games are concerned.
There are also special moves for all characters, with which we can inflict large amounts of damage to our rivals in exchange for consuming part of our special bar. Astral also have the Heat, some very spectacular special moves that ended up with our opponents. As to the unfairness of the Astral Heat can only be used under certain conditions, namely: being in the latest round of combat, have the special bar at 100% and that our opponent has less than 20% of their lives. We must mention the great care has been put into the conversion of BlazBlue to consoles, which is evident from the introductory video of the game, inspired by the popular animation studio Gonzo. A traditional arcade mode, versus, and training we have added a full story mode, a gallery, the option to watch replays of our best fighting online mode … On the latter should be noted that works like a charm, one of the best case (or best) of its kind in the genre. The game also has an elaborate story, which although not the main attraction of this type of game is never over.
