Certainly not the definitive version of Continuum Shift, but it's still a viable portable experience if you can tolerate the awful sound quality and the fact that you can't use the Circle Pad for anything other than special inputs. I also heard that the multiplayer on the 3DS version is nearly unplayable, but I can't verify that since none of my friends own this game. As with all other installments of the BlazBlue franchise, almost every character has a gameplay style unique only to them, the action is fast-paced and riveting, the soundtrack is amazing and unbelievable catchy, the voice acting is top-notch, and the story is very engaging. However, be aware that the plot, world-building, etc. are incredibly complicated, and you're probably going to spend a lot of time on the wiki, which was well worth it in my opinion.
Consumers beware: frame rate for this game is roughly between 30-35, sound assets are low quality, parts of the campaign/story mode have been altered to reduce content taking up space on the "disk", graphic glitches are consistent in some maps, the game uses the 3DS d-pad instead of the analog joystick for input (NO OPTION TO REMAP, but can remap other controls). The game is a typical hand held port, but for a slower machine. If you already like Blazblue CSII and only wish to play multiplayer with another player with a 3DS, I would recommend it. But if you have a PS Vita, get the PS Vita version instead as it contains the missing content and assets are superior to the 3DS'.
At first, I thought the story and graphics would make my eyes barf. Later, I found out that most of the stories and gameplay are rather interesting. Most of the fights are too easy, too hard, or plain right depending on who you fight. There are certain extras too, so it's worth the money(mostly).
The game is awesome but the D pad makes a little hard to move around. why 4 stars because the game is amazing, the music is wonderful, the characters are great and the story is good. My 2nd favorite fighting game after guilty gear. If you like fighting games or 2d fighting games or if you like guilty gear, persona 4 area, or king of fighters get this game. However if you have big hands I would get it on the console. My hands are medium so I can beat the game
The psvita one looks more accurate than this version. It is alot more simplistic in graphics for the 3ds graphics engine but the story mode with the 3d on looks absolutely amazing the way the characters pop out as a storybook would. For overall gameplay its not as fun because blazblue is known for its sleek cut smooth sprites and this just doesn't cut it. Out of all 3ds game you might want to have it in your collection still.
Great game, very similar to the latest gen version. So great to play on the go. Unfortunately you can't use the circle pad to move, so I needed to get used to d pads!
BlazBlue on 3DS! Definitely plays like the ps3 and Xbox 360 copies!
3DS needs more fighters, I have BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extended for the PS Vita and this has one more play mode than that. Highly worth it. Although it, unlike Super Street Fighter 4 3D, it wastes Street Pass
I think to this point. This is the Only 2-d fighter worth getting on the 3ds. but there is that one problem holding it back by so much, it doesn't use the circle pad like you think it does. if you can get past the stiff d-pad this is a game well worth the buy
