JUMP FORCE Review Summary

WeakCritic Consensus

Dull Gameplay

Disappointing Story

Unfortunate Art Style

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.

Critic Reviews for JUMP FORCE

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

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

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.

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

Seeing characters from different franchises fight one another is exciting, but the overall presentation drags the whole experience down

Jump Force provides strategic tag-team arena-based combat that's filled with fun references to Shonen Jump manga, but the game's story leaves much to be desired.

Like the Dissidia series, Jump Force is something I'm going to be coming back to for random bits of fun throughout the years. The core is good, it's just let down by some odd design choices and an average campaign. This is an older brawler in an HD skin: if you want something more than that, look elsewhere.

There isn't much nice to be said about Jump Force. Other than being a crossover title with some pretty special moves, there isn't anything to applaud here. The fighting is repetitive and dull, the infrastructure is more annoying than entertaining, and it's a gigantic disappointment from start to finish. Not only do the franchises represented deserve better than this, but it's an awful way to celebrate the manga giant's 50th anniversary.
