BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend is an excellent fighting game and a virtually identical porting of its PlayStation 3 counterpart, jampacked with content, modes and goodies to unlock. However, it's still your usual BlazBlue and you might not be interested if you have already purchased Continuum Shift II and every DLC character.
It's not only the best-looking 2D fighter ever created, but in my opinion, it's also one of the best and most feature-laden fighting games period - a statement I do not make lightly.
Wading through BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend's massive vocabulary and doubly complex battle systems will demand time and patience from any gamer. But the cast powering this engrossing fighter makes all the effort worthwhile, and the huge variety of modes dresses up play in different ways.
BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend is the most definitive version of this hardcore fighting title, in terms of fine-tuning, content, and pure visual beauty (thanks to the OLED screen); but, because of the tiny buttons and global ergonomics of the Vita, it's even harder to master. Online, there's also lag on some matches, but it's still very enjoyable for those that don't suffer from it.
It's easy to fall in love with Blazblue: Continuum Shift Extend thanks to the super stylistic graphics, very deep gameplay and amazing set of characters. And this is truly a great fighting game, even though the loading times and sound should have gotten more love.
