Game Over Online (Feb 03, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is just the kind of well-crafted 2D fighter that the PS4 needs more of. It’s much like the PS3-only 2D fighters we’ve been seeing over the past couple of years in the sense that it takes lesser-known licensed characters, throws them in a 2D fighting engine, and we wind up with a fantastic game that is pre-destined for obscurity from day one. Luckily, the digital era means that anyone with a desire to play the game can do so without having to rely on a physical copy – and anyone who enjoys 2D fighters should give this one a chance. It plays wonderfully and features an enjoyable visual novel to mix things up a bit.
TheSixthAxis (Feb 02, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz will no doubt fly under the radar of many, and that’s a huge disappointment. With strong gameplay and a healthy amount of unique characters, it’s a game that lives up to the pedigree of its developer. In a lot of ways, it even outdoes their previous titles. Casual and experienced fighting game players alike will find something to enjoy in this package, and fans of anime and Japanese media might even walk away with a few new titles to check out.
Destructoid (Feb 02, 2016)
Even though I still have no idea who most of these characters are, that didn't end up mattering to me in the end. Nitroplus Blasterz is a fast, smooth, strategic, and generally entertaining fighting game that has found a happy medium between accessibility and depth. Provided a decent-sized community builds around the game, this is a fighter I could see myself enjoying for a long time to come.
PlayStation Universe (Feb 03, 2016)
Nitro+ Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a fun fighting game that will get your inner waifu going. Without doubt a fan service game, its gameplay mechanics are refreshing enough to provide a great party game experience for you and your friends. Just don’t expect many people playing online once Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 arrive!
Gamers' Temple, The (Feb 07, 2016)
Aside from being a fighter with a cast of anime and manga characters from Nitroplus, this game is quite a solid fighter overall.
While sparse on content, the actual fighting of Nitroplus Blasterz is surprisingly deep and enjoyable. Fighting game fans that usually scoff at these types of games should definitely check it out. It has been a nice title to tide me over until Capcom unleashes the big guns this month. I will likely come back to this game over time, as it is super easy to pick up and play; and most importantly it is easy to have fun.
Hardcore Gamer Magazine (Feb 09, 2016)
In the end, those who are more familiar with works of Nitroplus will get the most out of Nitroplus Blasterz (shockingly enough), but even those with no prior knowledge of the included franchises should easily be able to enjoy it. Despite slightly lacking in the innovation department, what we have here is still an extremely solid fighter at its core, one with a nicely offbeat atmosphere and some great, inclusive gameplay that anyone can get into, so the end result is a fun 2D brawler perfect for rabid fans and noobs alike. Also, you get to smack people upside the head with a cat. So there’s that.
Eurogamer.it (Jun 09, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz è un picchiaduro 2D dedicato agli appassionati di animazione giapponese alla ricerca di un gioco ricco e discretamente profondo. Pur non raggiungendo i tecnicismi di Melty Blood (attualmente disponibile su Steam), questo gioco è tranquillamente in grado di soddisfare i picchiatori più esigenti, senza però chiudere la porta in faccia ai novizi dell'arcade stick.
Worth Playing (Mar 02, 2016)
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.
GameGrin (Apr 20, 2016)
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?
God is a Geek (Feb 05, 2016)
An interesting fighting game that has a few flaws, but otherwise held my attention enough to keep going back to it for random matches online, or trying out the varied cast of fighters.
Meristation (Apr 22, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel no es el nuevo gran juego del género, pero no necesita serlo. Se conforma con ser un producto sólido, bien acabado, con un magnífico apartado técnico que únicamente peca de algo de estatismo en sus fondos, con catorce luchadoras perfectamente diferenciadas unas de otras, un sistema de ayudantes que enriquece las mecánicas y sistema de combos, modos de juego justos pero competentes y un versus divertidísimo. Es de fácil acceso, no tiene la profundidad de un BlazBlue, Gulty Gear o Melty Blood, pero partiendo de esa base tampoco decepciona porque a cualquier nivel, es robusto y da todo lo que se propone. Si os gusta el género, id de cabeza a por él, especialmente si tenéis gente con la que jugar. Además, sale a precio reducido (40€), por lo que es una apuesta más que interesante para cualquier completista de los 1vs1.
Gaming Nexus (Feb 02, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroine's Infinite Duel is definitely an above average title. It's a shame that cutting corners in a few key places (like the online play menus, and the lack of a good combo training mode) really cheapens the experience. The wacky story is worthy of a playthrough, and the character roster is filled with some of the most unassuming combatants you've ever seen. Except Saber, she's a bad-ass.
CGMagazine / Comics and Gaming Magazine (Feb 02, 2016)
Sometimes a game comes along and does so much right, but completely messes up one thing that it ruins the whole experience. That’s the best way I can describe Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroine’s Infinite Duel.
We Got This Covered (2016)
Even if you don't know the cast of Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, there's still plenty of fun to be had in this simple fighting game. Fans of the characters will be in for a real treat, though.
DarkZero (Feb 10, 2016)
In the end, Nitroplus Blasterz: Infinite Heroines Duel doesn’t reinvent the wheel for fighting games, and ironically enough it’s all the better for it. The stripped-down mechanics lead to more pick-up-and-play sessions without feeling overwhelmed by too many rules to follow, and the cast of characters are entertaining enough just to witness in action even if you have no idea about their respective origins.
Brash Games (Feb 17, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel delved into my curiosity of the Japanese fighting genre. It was greeted with a decent experience and solid foundation. Controlling your fighter can be awkward, but get next to the opponent and release feel good, glorious beat downs, and a button mashing war. An interesting roster, dual storylines, and great visuals prove this to be worthy of a newcomers time, and a real treat for established fans.
High-Def Digest (Feb 06, 2016)
'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. Despite all the caveats, though, it's a game I ultimately had a lot of fun with. If you're looking for an entry point into the genre, this is a decent place to start.
Vandal Online (Apr 07, 2016)
Puesto que la carta del fan service es poco efectiva en Occidente por el desconocimiento de muchos animes, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel salva la papeleta por la calidad en los aspectos puramente jugables. Es un juego de lucha digno, que simplifica sistemas -no hasta el punto de cortar toda la diversión- para que se pueda empezar a disfrutar desde el primer minuto.
Gameblog.fr (Apr 28, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz - Heroines Infinite Duel, en dépit de son nom à coucher dehors, reste un bon jeu de baston, avec de beaux graphismes 2D bien animés, des effets visuels réussis et un gameplay accessible qui va très vite se montrer complètement fou et spectaculaire ! Néanmoins, ce dernier, s'il peut être approfondi, ne montrera pas la richesse d'un Blazblue ou d'un Street Fighter V. Les modes de jeux classiques du genre sont tous là, et si on pourrait lui reprocher son faible nombre de combattants, ce chiffre reste plus qu'honorable pour une première itération de jeu de combat, surtout lorsque ce dernier est réalisé en 2D. Un titre idéal pour passer un bon moment avec vos amis !
COGConnected / Canadian Online Gamers Network (Feb 12, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a solid effort, bringing together such a great cast of characters from a number of different visual novels and gaming franchises; pitting them up against each other in an enjoyable arcade fighting style game. There is no question the game needs better offline modes but the online and multiplayer modes more then make up for its shortcomings. Without a doubt Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is good fan service game to get your inner waifu up and going with decent gameplay mechanics that are refreshing enough to provide a great party.
Digitally Downloaded (Feb 24, 2016)
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.
Atomix (Feb 02, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel no es un juego que aporte algo nuevo al género, de hecho es todo lo contrario, rescata elementos de las viejas glorias de juegos de pelea 2D como The King of Fighters, Street Fighter III, Guilty Gear o Arcana Heart, las mecánicas de juego toman y mezclan elementos de los juegos antes mencionados. Es un juego veloz, intuitivo y adictivo para los que gustan de los juegos 2D con corte anime, el juego cuenta con el sistema cross-play entre las versiones PlayStation 3 y PlayStation 4. Por desgracia como ya lo había mencionado el modo Network está limitado, pero en general con todo y sus fallos es un juego altamente recomendable y competitivo para todos los fans de los juegos de pelea.
PS Nation (Feb 12, 2016)
Crossover fighters often stand more on the character selection than anything else and Nitroplus Blasterz is no different. There’s some fun to be had in the game even for players who don’t know all the characters, and the “Another Story” mode goes a ways towards at least assigning some kind of personality to the faces. However there isn’t a whole lot that makes the game catch the eye over similar titles.
4Players.de (Apr 08, 2016)
Wer von Capcoms Veröffentlichungspolitik zu Street Fighter 5 genervt ist und aus Trotz einen alternativen Prügler sucht, wird früher oder später über Nitroplus Blasterz stolpern. Doch obwohl sowohl Kampfmechanik als auch Modi-Auswahl für Solisten mindestens solide sind, wird man auch hier nicht lange glücklich. Vor allem auch, da ArcSystem mit dem etwas sechs Monate alten BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend in jedem Bereich die Nase vorn hat: Die Kulisse ist dort filigraner als hier, die Akustik ist trotz des hier eingesetzten J-Rock bei den Blasterz zu uneinheitlich - sogar in der Kernkompetenz von Nitroplus, der Visual Novel, ziehen die Heldinnen den Kürzeren. Denn selbst der Modus "Another Story" reicht hinsichtlich Dramaturgie und Inszenierung nicht an das heran, was BlazBlue oder auch Persona 4 Arena auffahren. Und der Online-Modus ist in dieser Form unbrauchbar.
PlayStation Lifestyle (Feb 02, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is an admirable effort, bringing together characters from a number of visual novels and gaming franchises and pitting them against each other in a solid, energetic brawler. It’s a shame that there aren’t more interesting modes in which to test your fighting mettle, particularly when the two story modes offered are so dull and impenetrable, but at least there’s some good multiplayer fun to be had — just don’t get too interested in completely even-handed competition, as I highly suspect there are serious balancing issues at play here. Still, as a lighthearted bit of fun to enjoy with friends online or locally, there’s enough colorful, flashy eye candy here to satisfy casual fighter fans.
Game Revolution (Feb 08, 2016)
Overall, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel doesn’t do anything wrong; it just meets the bare minimum. It’s like eating a saltine cracker. Bland, but not bad. Without their source materials readily available, few will be able to appreciate the level of fan service present, though I’m sure everyone can appreciate cat attacks. Cat-tacks. (Okay, I’ll stop.)
USgamer (Feb 11, 2016)
Like Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Nitroplus Blasterz brings together various characters from Nitroplus properties. Unfortunately, fans may not know these characters, many of whom have never been published in the West. That leaves a solid, but rather basic fighting game to draw players in.
Multiplayer.it (Apr 12, 2016)
Il picchiaduro di Examu non ha equilibrio: vorrebbe essere adatto a tutti, ma non ci riesce. Si giocherebbe che è un piacere, se alcuni personaggi non fossero così legnosi, e a vedere le foto sembra un titolo bidimensionale curatissimo, finché non si contano le animazioni e si nota la generale povertà di dettagli. Dedicato soprattutto ai fan delle visual novel coinvolte, fallisce nel compito di proporre una modalità Story degna delle sue fonti, e alla stragrande maggioranza dei giocatori italiani le varie lottatrici non diranno un bel niente. Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel ha il sapore di un buon gameplay con un contorno di mediocrità, insomma: peccato.
GameSpew (Apr 07, 2016)
It should be pretty obvious that if you’re a fan of Nitroplus and the things they create then you’ll get the most out of Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel. Either way though, it’s by no means an essential fighting game. Whilst the combat is indeed enjoyable and quite fresh thanks to its support character system, it just isn’t enough to elevate it to the level of its peers such as BlazBlue, Guilty Gear and Street Fighter. It also doesn’t help that it is fairly light on gameplay modes and options. Overall then, Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel is a competent fighting game but one that doesn’t really excel in any area, making it hard to recommend among the pool of more technically developed and feature-rich titles available.
Twinfinite (Feb 02, 2016)
Nitroplus Blasterz – Heroines Infinite Duel plays it too safe, to the point of taking the game’s potential and squandering it. The roster is top notch, with all of the heroines being unique and fun to watch tear opponents apart. Ultimately, the less than stellar controls, lackluster visuals, and forgettable story make for a game that fails to impress. It’s a shame, because the roster alone is a strong foundation. If only the rest of the game received the same attention.
Push Square (Feb 02, 2016)
Unfortunately for Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, its single player content is so threadbare that, more than ever, like-minded friends are essential in order to enjoy the game to its middling potential, and even then, any online sessions will most likely be scuppered by the wonky netcode. It's messy, it can look bad, and it feels incomplete, but beneath all of this is core gameplay that isn't without merit – if only for the most hardcore of Nitroplus' fighting game fans.
