BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Review

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Review

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a polished 2D fighter that is friendly to both beginners and experts.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is commonly known as the successor to the Guilty Gear series by ARC System Works. Many signature “Fighter-game” features were passed down from BlazBlues’ predecessor. ARC System Works began working on BlazBlue the moment they decided to end the Guilty Gear franchise, but they have made no sacrifices in regards to complexity and play-ability, as many long-time Guilty Gear fans have taken well to BlazBlue. In its short time on the shelves.

BlazBlue has become something of an underground success by gaining a cult-following of 2D fighter enthusiasts who appreciate its completeness and aesthetic qualities, as it is not recognized as a mainstream title like its counterparts, namely “Street Fighter” and “Tekken.” Another potential reason why BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is not a hit among mainstream gamers is that its style of graphics are not necessarily up-to-date, as the visuals look pixilated and so many consider the graphics “Dated.”

The game is designed similarly to other 2D action fighters in that it pits two players against one another in a 2D environment, where they must battle each other using blocks/barriers, combos and special moves. The intricacy of the gameplay might be intimidating enough to scare off new players, but the game is surprisingly accommodating to people unaccustomed to the diverse and meticulous combo system.

Characters possess simpler combo attacks that consist of basic button sequences so that players new to the game still have a fighting chance. One potential drawback might be that a casual player may never have the time to learn the complicated combo-attacks, making eventual boredom inevitable.

The game is equally as artistically thrilling as it is challenging. The colorful backgrounds, detailed character animations, flashy attacks and fast-paced music make for a very engaging atmosphere. All of the characters have unique qualities that give them their own personalities in combat, which results in a very strong immersion.

Aside from regular attacks, there is a special attack that players can use at any time that differs between each character available. These individual attacks help emphasize the specific traits that make each character unique, creating a rich and polished combat experience that is exciting for players new and old.

Another feature that makes BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger special is the “Heat gauge”, a meter connected to characters that is used to determine whether or not they can perform super-attacks. If the meter is completely full, characters can use devastating super-attacks that often end the fight in seconds, resulting in an irreplaceable feeling of triumph. The stress of watching your opponents’ heat gauge go up adds a whole new element to the already dynamic fighting system, and forces you to pay attention to every trick your enemy might have up its sleeve.
