Dengeki bunko fighting climax original soundtrack

Arcade Mode is familiar fighting fare featuring a woeful story involving dreams, hope, and despair, và just about serves as a device khổng lồ bring characters from various worlds together. It"s insipid & particularly tiresome - every word of dialogue uttered by the game"s protagonist và antagonist lớn further the story is identical regardless of the player"s chosen character. Lớn unlock much of the game"s content, players will be hearing this a lot. Or skipping it.Bạn đang xem: Dengeki bunko: fighting climax

It all just feels weak, as it"s fair to lớn expect far more involved writing given the available material. Increasingly baffling is the fact that the stages are all Sega-themed, despite having the 11 Dengeki worlds of the main cast to draw from. Fans of Sword Art Online may well look forward to lớn picking Asuna & battling a buddy playing Kirito, but we doubt that they"d ever wish to vị so in Green Hill Zone, of all places.

Dream Duel offers a more appealing premise for Dengeki Bunko fans. Here we"re shown what would happen if two heroes from various franchises met, and, of course, how they"d end up fighting. Kirino and Miyuki chat about brotherly love, then fight. Shizuo and Rentaro become increasingly irate over confusion regarding prostheses, then fight. Featuring endearingly direct dialogue - for we know with certainty where these exchanges are leading - fans will draw some amusement from these interactions.

Rounding off single player modes, Time Attack, Survival, & Score Attack modes are present. These modes present precisely what is expected – a series of fights lớn gain a record time, high score, or defeating a large number of enemies before the player falls – và come with online leader-boards, which worryingly appear lớn very sparsely populated, perhaps indicative of a very low player base or even a bug. The trò chơi also features a standard training mode, housing various options that fighting game players have come lớn expect.

The fighting system in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is very accessible; special moves are performed in exactly the same way by the entire crew. Powerful triggers to activate buffs, cancels, & defensive options are all achieved by hitting two or three buttons at the same time. Attacks can be chained together simply – light lớn medium lớn strong – và mashing light attack results in a pre-set full bộ that isn"t terribly powerful, but feels good lớn land and looks suitably impressive.

For a trò chơi that may be aimed at the Dengeki Bunko hardcore as much as fighting trò chơi players, this accessibility is clearly a considered move, but one heavy with consequence. The roster is small, and this problem is exacerbated by the done-to-death chain bộ combo system và standardised special move commands across the board – it makes the few available characters feel less distinct khổng lồ play. Needless to say, we soon became a little bored with the game.

Thankfully, things get more in-depth when it comes lớn meter management: everybody has 5 levels of super meter, starts off with two single-use "Trump Cards", and a Blast ability, which, similar khổng lồ calling assists, is rationed through a cooldown timer. Super meter allows the use of the ultra-damaging Critical Arts, calling assists during combos, and EX special moves. Trump cards power up your fighter"s Climax Arts, deliver incredibly strong attacks, or provide timed buffs. Blasts come in three varieties depending on the situation that you"re in when you activate them, and can be used lớn cancel attacks, escape dangerous situations, power nguồn up your character, and gain super meter.

You"ll need all the above tools when you venture online, too, as competition can be tough. Online modes are as expected - ranked matches for glory, player matches for more casual fun. Ranked mode has some neat filters: players can specify regional preferences, minimum network performance, and there is a system in place to punish frequent rage-quitters. The online experience is varied, though – a poor connection will simply freeze the trò chơi until each client is in sync, meaning that you feel lag very badly when it hits, but when there"s a good connection between opponents, all is fine.

When it comes down to more practical considerations, the trò chơi runs well; a steady framerate is delivered at all times. The trò chơi sits at 720p, however, và this can lead to some of the character sprites having rather jagged edges - but the presentation is faithful to lớn the source material, & well animated. What"s more, the characters themselves look distinctive, and have personality aplenty. Similarly, the backgrounds are interesting và colourful, and while they"re nothing to write trang chủ about, they serve lớn provide variety & a splash of colour. Plus, load-times are exceptionally fast.

The soundtrack, meanwhile, is largely anonymous yet vaguely catchy in places, & of course, the voice acting is exactly as it should be – all 37 characters & assists are professionally voiced by the original voice actors with the one exception of Kino, apparently voiced by Aya Hisakawa for this outing.

Conclusion

Being laser-focussed on its demographic, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is a difficult game to assess, and a difficult game to recommend lớn everybody. Fighting game players who are fans of Dengeki Bunko"s work will surely enjoy the title và its bonus nội dung – especially with like-minded friends on hand. However, once these extras have been exhausted and it comes down lớn the gameplay, a single fact remains: there are many better fighters on the PS3.

Yeah, it was funny seeing some of my favorite anime characters fighting each other. I think it`s worth it for the fan hâm mộ service alone. I hope Sega keeps localizing niche titles like this.

On a side note, I couldn"t stop laughing when Kuroneko said things lượt thích "jigoku he ochinasai" when I lost a battle.

With too many heavy hitting fighting games in my library I will probably have to lớn pass on this one, even though I was initially pretty hyped. Still need khổng lồ get Under Night In Birth however.
