Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe thankfully does not live up to its subtitle at all. This re-release of a re-release builds up on everything that came before it, fleshing out the experience into something worthy of your attention, whether you're a hardcore fighter or a casual button-masher. Some wonky writing and poor visuals dampen the experience somewhat, but if you can look past that and fancy some classic KOF style fighting game action, this is the game for you.

Chaos Code -New Sign of Catastrophe- is a solid, albeit unremarkable fighter that plays well, and even though it lacks many features I would consider a staple in a modern day fighting game, the budget price point helps to forget what is unaccounted for. However, what can't be ignored is the incredibly small player base where it's a struggle to find a single match online. In a market steeped with excellent titles like Blazblue, Guilty Gear and UNIEL, just that one glaring flaw alone is enough to make it very difficult to recommend.

Despite fighting games feeling somewhat stagnant for quite some time, somehow a game from 2011 has managed to feel like something new and fresh. While it is never going to have the balance or fan popularity of other frontrunners in the genre, Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe, is a perfectly functional brawler that is approachable for the casual audience and has enough meat to appeal to the hardcore. It isn’t going to set the world on fire or re-define a genre, but it certainly knows how to leave an impression. Animatronic ta-tas tend to do that.

While this isn't a contender for fighting game of the year, it's a great way to pass the time while you wait for other big name fighting game releases.

Chaos Code -New Sign of Catastrophe- is a solid fighting game, but it's hard to recommend it when there are far better offerings in the genre.

Dynamic fighting game based on anime which brings nothing new to the table. Mostly mediocore title with some disappointing shortcomings.

Chaos Code – New Sign of Catastrophe doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but what it does provide is a lot of high-quality 2D fighting action.

Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe is an average fighting game. Although the gameplay isn't bad, there are too many other underlying issues that keep me from recommending this title. Try another fighter instead.

It is a very easy to pick up fighting game with a high skill ceiling and lots of replay value.

Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastophe is a fun remaster of the PS3 release for those PS4 owners who missed this the first time around. It's a sound fighter that doesn't do anything particularly new. The lack of a graphical upgrade might rub some people the wrong way, but it's certainly a game you need to play thanks to its budget price.
