The first hi-res 2D fighter from the creators of the Guilty Gear series! BlazBlue is a traditional 2D fighter where two characters participate in a duel. The story of the game involves dissent and destruction among a powerful council, known unofficially as "the Library," which controls a great power that once saved humanity, but which now wields its power in protective, some say repressive, ways.
A round is called a "rebel" and one match can consist of one to five "rebels". To win a round, one player must incapacitate the other by reducing their opponent's health to zero or have more remaining health than their opponent when the clock runs out. Every character has a weak, medium, and strong attack. Also every one has a "unique" technique, called a Drive attack, which is different for each character.
Versus Mode notice: Local multiplayer only. Two game pads are required to be connected to the same PC in order to make full use of this game mode.

I am a GREAT fan of fighting games and blazeblue is a great surprise, I never thought to see it here on GOG.com store and DRM-FREE.
FIRST, BLAZEBLUE IS NOT GUILTY GEAR, AND STOP COMPAIRING, PLEASE!
- Great character animation and huge handraw 2d Sprites!
- beautifull, colourfull and well detailed, 3D environments.
- An exelent soudtrack a mix of heavy metal riffs andread more Gothic Instrumental covers
- Exelent voice acting include (JAPANES and ENGLISH)
- Include Multi-languge UI
- Include All reglamentary Gameplay modes (Score Attack, Player VS Cpu, Player vs player and Story)
- a complete Unlockable Gallery whit extra draws and music!
- They respect the original opening singing by Kotoko and include the original from the arcade... (that's enough for me)
- No online gameplay, but you can play local on the same cumputer.
- Poor and Bad structurated Story mode, if you not see the anime: blazblue alter memory, never understand the story.
I have it on Steam, on PS3, Xbox360
NOW WILL GET IT DRM-FREE, PROBLEM?

First a bit of history:
Blazblue is of the creators of Guilty Gear and you notice that as soon as you hit the introduction with quality music, art and animation.
However its curse on the PC is that the game was rather hard to actually get in most countries, in my situation we had to order this game from a obscure shop somewhere in Sweden to even get it and i wouldnt be suprisedread more that this caused the bad sales of this version. ( Also that it had Games for windows live for m-player, but thats void for this review )
However, now on to the gameplay:
The gameplay is from the first release version of calamity trigger, so you will notice a lot of imbalance between the characters and you will notice the outdated-ness of it all...IF you played it on console, the PC version is very much playable and easy to get into and it runs well on most machines.
If anything its a enjoyable fighter with a lot of fun characters to play and it have a WICKED soundtrack. If you dont enjoy this game for the 10$ i would say the soundtrack is and depending on where you are in the world this is most likely cheaper than Metallicas latest albums.
+Fun gameplay that works for the PC
+A weird storymode in true fighting game fashion
+Well animated and great art
-Its a PC port
-It used to be Games for windows live, so i have no idea how they sorted m-player if any.
