JUMP FORCE

JUMP FORCE 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.

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.

The Shonen Jump universe is full of color, life, and creativity. Jump Force brings its iconic characters to our universe, but it leaves everything else behind.

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.

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.

Joining so many manga stars is with no doubt the great feature of a fighting game that feels just OK. Sometimes it's flashy, but also out of balance.
