Top Critic Average
Fate/Extella Link is the richest entry in the series thanks to its more in-depth combat system and to the wealth and variety of characters, multiple customization options and their contribution to the game's plot.

The game does get repetitive fast, but the fast-paced action and short missions are enough to keep players thoroughly entertained, especially in short bursts.
Good old fashioned and accessible Warriors-style action wrapped in a story full of pre-established lore from the Fate series. Particularly great for those new to Musou.
Whilst the muddled story that immediately assumes you know the lore found in previous titles limits the draw of the campaign, Fate/EXTELLA LINK easily provides a surprisingly deep, content-rich adventure that is certain to become a time-sink should you let yourself go unchecked.
Fate/Extella Link continues offering the same entertaining blend of musou action and RPG-like progression, in a package that is bigger and better. Still, unless a big fan of the franchise, it's not exactly a must-have, as it mostly feels like an improvement that generally keeps things annoyingly safe.
If you’re a fan of musou games or the Fate franchise of games/anime, this is pretty much a no brainer for you. Pick up post haste! If you’re not a big fan of musou games, the Fate series or traps, Extella Link is still might be worth a pick up, at least to try it out.
Fate/EXTELLA LINK builds on The Umbral Star very well in terms of visuals, gameplay, and mechanics.
Whether you are a fan of the series or not, Fate/EXTELLA LINK is rather fun, it's filled to the brim with action, and allows for fans both new and old to familiarize themselves with a healthy roster of well-established servants. It ensures that no one encounter will ever be experienced exactly the same and sets itself leagues ahead of some of its competitor titles, making it an absolute must-have for Musou fans.
Divisive in nearly every facet, Fate/EXTELLA LINK is a game that lovingly caters to its demographic, however limited it may be.
GOOD - Fate/Extella Link features lots of improvements over the previous release, but it still suffers from some of the pitfalls the last title had and does have a steep learning curve for those unfamiliar with the franchise. Hack and slash action aficionados will find a lot to like here!
