Critic Reviews for UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[st]

I tend to be pretty good at fighting games, but it's rare that any of the ones I play truly click with me. Back in 2015, Under Night on PS3 totally clicked with me. The balance between simple character movesets and how system mechanics elevate those moves into an endless suite of juicy combos is something I found myself attracted to like a magnet to an iron bar. Beyond that, though, Under Night sports a dynamic cast of characters and some of the prettiest 2D visuals I've seen in a fighting game. Exe:Late[st] takes the delicious Under Night cake and adds an entire extra layer of your favorite flavor, plus the garnishes and decorative frosting to make it stand out again, 3 years later.

Good fighting game that may be too ugly for a 2018 fighter, but manages to entertain during a big amount of time.

Under Night In-Birth Exe Night: Late[st] is a fighting game based on a solid gameplay and able to offer a great challenge. Despite the fact that it provides a good support to newcomers, the game only offers its best if you can fully master the intense and excited rhythms of the combat system. 2D graphic and the typical Japanese character design are an added value or a minor flaw, depending on your taste. In any case, we're facing a carefully, crafted game, which certainly deserves a chance if you're a fan of the genre.

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] is a sublime fighting game, with a lot of content to enjoy, a varied gameplay and a generous roster. The graphics show their age, but the art direction is still pretty unique. Despite the fact that several fighting games were released in the past few weeks, this one should be on top of your list.

There's no way this will ever be a mainstream fighting game, but it's still a blast to play.

Under Night In-Birth Late[st] is the complete package for fighting game fans, with the visual novel-like story being the only potential let down for anyone that isn't used to how Arc System Works do things. It's even worth buying, despite the excellent recent fighting game releases, because the combo flexibility and and accessibility for both experienced and inexperienced fighting game fans is fairly unique even among fighters.

With Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], we've got another deep Japanese fighting experience on the PS4. It doesn't have the looks to go toe-to-toe with some of the shinier games out there, but as Han Solo said, "she might not look like much, but she's got it where is counts". If you can get past the mad title, this is a portal through which to jump in to the virtually endless realm of combat experimentation.
