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.

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.

Read full review

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

Read full review

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.
