Reviews Summary

Dull Gameplay
Disappointing Story
Unfortunate Art Style

Summary: Jump Force's impressive roster is wasted on a game with poor storytelling and rote gameplay. It seems cobbled together at best and downright unfinished at worst.

An epic clash between the some of manga's most famous characters shouldn't be this dull, frankly.

Jump Force is all flash and little substance. Even with a roster of 40 beloved characters, it fails to stick the landing.

A crossover between the world's most famous manga characters results in a peculiarly underdeveloped fighter, with an especially disappointing story mode.

An ambitious brawler that suffers from something of an identity crisis, Jump Force will nevertheless delight anime fans – especially those of a vintage who knows the more obscure characters included here. A bit more finesse on the controls, making them less complex and more responsive, would have elevated the whole experience greatly, as would a more coherent and polished story mode, but it's a solid enough experience with more than enough spectacle and strategy to satisfy. If you're looking for a dedicated fighter that will both test your skills and prove more accessible though, Bandai Namco's own Tekken or SoulCalibur are far better examples of the genre.
