Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel Reviews
A well-presented - if misjudged- presentation based on an obscure IP with a fresh feeling graphic style that is often bogged down by the lack of relevant additional modes and an online play system which is better left untouched. Excessive action, revealing costumes and an additional story mode are not enough to save this average fighter from a destiny of mediocrity.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel isn't going to be an instant classic for gamers. It doesn't provide anything new for fighting veterans, and it doesn't have characters that will immediately draw in players. It does provide a good fighting experience with an assortment of modes that provide familiarity – but nothing new. While it may not be the first choice for fighting fans, it remains a good choice for those willing to explore more than just the big names in the genre.
'Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel' likely won't capture a major audience within the fighting game community, though for what it tries to do, it's a fun game. Those who are just looking for something light and frothy will have a good time, but if you're looking for much complexity, this likely won't hold interest for terribly long. The stalwart online helps the game a great deal, but lack of moveset variety in the roster isn't particularly exciting. For sure, there's fun to be had with 'Nitroplus', it just requires that you play with other people, as the single player is far too limited for its own good.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a competent, but fun, fighting game. The biggest strengths this title has are found in the varied selection of fighters and secondary characters to choose from, plus the polished fighting mechanics ensure that both casual and hardcore players can have a fun experience. Overlook the fairly cutesy and somewhat suggestive nature of the game and there is a good title that is worth a look.
Nitroplus Blasterz is one of those games that caters to its audience quite well. Those looking for gratuitous anime fanservice or solid fighting action will eat this game right up, but those wondering what a “Super Sonico” is will be left scratching their heads in confusion.
I really enjoyed this game. It's not quite on the level of the fighters I really love (that being Dead or Alive and BlazBlue), but I can see myself coming back to this one fairly often. And, unusually for me, I'll be coming because I enjoy the combat system; usually I'm looking for character, personality and even narrative in my fighting games. This one doesn't do any of that particularly well, but that combat is just too satisfying to resist.
On the whole, Nitroplus Blasterz Heroines Infinite Duel is a quality 2D fighter, even if it lacks the narrative in needed and the characterisation that would have made it more effective as fanservice. All I can recommend is that you give the game a chance until you've managed to topple the boss, because from that point on you'll probably find yourself with a game that has a combat system you'll quite enjoy.
I went into Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel Review quite skeptical at first, but what met me was a solid fighting game. The story is a big naff, but it looks great and plays well. That's all you need from a fighting game right?
If you like fighting games, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel might probably suit you, but won’t dethrone any of your old time favorites and, if you’re not that into the genre, but would like to try something new, this might just be the best option for you.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a must-have if you are a fan of Nitroplus which should be a great deal of people. But anyone else is likely to find the game offering far too little to be worth buying on release.
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel packs a lot of charm within its friendly yet nuanced fighting-game mechanics that beginners should have no trouble picking up, but it's definitely a title that fans of Nitroplus - or the anime/manga these characters appear in - will get more out of, with the interactions between characters and thin plot completely lost on me. Most of all, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel aims to be fast-paced and fun, wholly succeeding in that aspect along with its distinct roster of characters that will be right up the alley for most fans of the fighting-game genre.
While I can't speak for the fighting game specialists or professionals out there, for the general gaming public, Nitroplus Blasterz is definitely a title that's worth a look.
Nitroplus Blasterz Heroines Infinite Duel is a massive step backwards in the world of fighting games like this. Cast your minds back to the 90's with classics like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and Tekken and you'll find much better, much more playable games than this. Although a well drawn, well presented game - it lacks so much with its gameplay and what little story there is, it is a massive let down.
Overall, Nitroplus Blasterz probably won't make it into your top list of fighting games, but it certainly has its own charm. The story mode is challenging but not difficult (until the last boss; she is absolutely brutal) and offers a story line for each character, the Another Story is interesting, if not overly complicated, and each character has their own play style, which makes it fun to try out each of the characters. While the game certainly lacks in any form of tutorial, and the music and stages can get repetitive, the gameplay is solid and it was definitely fun to see all my favorite niche characters duke it out with each other. If you're a niche Nitroplus fan, this is definitely a game you may want to pick up, although fighting veterans and newer players to the 2D fighting style might not be able to get into it too easily.
