    This is one game that may even sway you if you aren’t a fan of fighting games, as it’s a great way to introduce anyone into the genre. It’s accessibility and very reasonable budget price makes owning this one a no brainer. It’s a lot of fun and highly recommended.

    Anyone who has wanted a new fighting game to play should give it a shot – especially if your PS3 is filled up with them, as you’ll find a lot to enjoy here thanks to its combination of a fairly robust roster and tight gameplay.

    DB:FC falls short in being able to compete with the big boys in the anime fighting game scene as an overall package but when viewed strictly from the accessibility and depth of its combat engine, it’s most definitely a contender.

    While decent enough, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax may be too simplistic for most hardcore fighting game fans to enjoy as anything more than an ephemeral lark, but also perhaps still too complex for those that find the genre intimidating.

    A decent fighter, and it’s nice that it got an English release. Anime and Arc System Works fans will be at home here, but fighting fans may find it too generic.

    If you're a big fan of these light novel characters or the anime they've been in, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax might be your jam. If not, this fighter is accessible, but that accessibility makes many characters on the small roster feel the same. A solid effort, but there are better 2D fighters out there.

    Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax just isn't giving fighting game fans or anime fans what they want. There's potential, which may be realized in the sequel, but as it stands it's a mashable fighting game with more novelty than anything else.

    great lets give low scores to one of the last remaining 2D sprite based games. Western Reviewers are shameless.

    I'm not a big fighting game person. I've played a little of Skullgirls and before Street Fighter 2 on SNES. I just don't like how many combosI'm not a big fighting game person. I've played a little of Skullgirls and before Street Fighter 2 on SNES. I just don't like how many combos each different character has, takes a long time to memorize them so I've always stayed away from the fighting game genre. Although with Dengeki Bunko I had to compromise since I loved so many of these characters in anime. I had also read that the combo system was made to be simple for beginners and those who didn't dive too much into the Fighting Game genre but also have some depth to it.

    I'm writing this review to say what they said is true. Pretty much everyone's combo is the same pattern, although they each do something different but for the most part the down-forward combo is almost always a ranged type of attack and the down-reverse combo is some sort of defensive/back away and attack combo. I like that because I can switch to all my favorite characters and know the gist of what I need to play them. There is more combos then that and depth, specifically the support system is has a lot of depth, there are so many combinations it would take a while to figure out what would work with your playstyle.

    Overall a super fun game and a relatively easy game to platinum if you're into that like I am. (I'm not there yet) - The story is not really a story, but the dream duels is where you get fun little scripted dialogue with the fan service you want. The game modes are wide and vast, something for everyone for sure and lots of ways to customize and unlock with your favorite characters.

    Even if you're not good at Fighting Games or a fan of them, if you like the characters you'll like this game and it's very easy to pick up and play once you learn the several combos there are, you can switch between characters without having to relearn everything, just some things.
