Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid isn’t going to reinvent the wheel but it will let you remember days gone while enjoying a solid fighter. Or it will make you really wish that Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon would pay attention to my suggestion about a TV show…

A fun budget fighter that has its core mechanics in the right place but is currently missing a lot of content, Battle for the Grid is a good fighting game with the potential to become great.

This game still has ways to go before it can properly say that it’s a complete game. Though the foundation is there. Ultimately, it’s up to the game’s community to continue supporting it. And the developers to further improve upon it.

If you're looking for a solid fighting game, Power Rangers Battle For The Grid is definitely something you'll want to try out for a while. But if you're looking for the ULTIMATE Power Rangers fighting game experience. Or a fighting game that'll last you a long time, this isn't it.

At [its low price point], there is some leeway to be given to Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. It’s extremely fair for what is ultimately a fun, Marvel vs. Capcom-lite clone. There is also future support ensured with more characters and skins.

Power Ranges: Battle for the Grid while being technical strong and smooth to play seems to limp to the K.O in each round with the lack of content. I really do hope that down the line more free content such as fighters and arenas are added to the game to beef it out.

Under all of Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid's poor graphics, anemic content, and bugs is the beating heart of a mechanically sound 2D fighter.

I found Battle for the Grid‘s gameplay to be a blast when playing locally with a friend. The easy inputs help new players get into the action quickly without having to overcome a huge learning curve. Power Rangers fans will love this game if they have someone they can consistently play with. The gameplay is smooth and the action is fine-tuned to allow for fast-paced combos. Sadly, everything else about this game makes it painfully clear that this was a budget title. Battle for the Grid is fun because of nWay’s devotion to creating an approachable fighting game with nods to its many predecessors. Other than that, I would not recommend Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, especially if you’re looking for a game with a good amount of content and decent netcode.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid has some near-perfect online play and tag-team mechanics, but is held back by some disappointing story modes and an egregious lack of content. Dedicated Power Rangers fans and fighting game enthusiasts will find a lot to love, but for everyone else, wait until the free update for more characters and content in the future.

The near perfect mechanics of Battle for the Grid aren't enough to make this a game worth playing. You'll have a few fun nights with your buddies partaking in some ranger on ranger violence, but you'll quickly find yourself returning to other mainstream fighting games.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will not disappoint those within the Power Rangers fan base looking for a fun and simple 2D fighting game and its well implemented online component further adds to that. Where Battle for the Grid falls short, however, is on its visual component, which does not attempt to fully profit from the Nintendo Switch capacities and especially, on its business model, which will impose the need for paid DLC in order to expand the fighters' roster.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid could have been amazing if they had remembered to put in all the content! As a fighting game with only nine characters on launch, a mechanic where you have to pick 1/3 of the roster for your team per match, a season pass selling four skins for £12.99, and 8x less content than the developers mobile game, it’s unforgivable. The actual fighting, visuals, performance and fun you have whilst playing the game, all help try and redeem it, but it’s not enough to balance out the lack of content you get for your money.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid suffers from dated visuals, poor presentation, and a serious lack of content, unable to hide its low-budget shortcomings. At its core is something of a slick and wholly-accessible fighting game. Yet without the visual pizazz of the brand, a full, varied roster of characters, or a glut of exciting content to dive into, Battle for the Grid ultimately feels like the unfinished prototype of what could have been a very special release.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid isn't some cheap tie into a quarter-century-old franchise – at least not in sense of its core mechanics and gameplay. With a smooth 60fps in all formats on Switch, lots of modes to play through and support for ranked and casual bouts online, it's a decent fighter, even without the licence. However, an ugly yet suitably contemporary approach to content accessibility leaves this game feeling frustratingly spartan to anyone who doesn't invest in a rolling number of ongoing season passes. This seems to be the way all fighting games are going – just look at Dead or Alive 6's awful DLC setup – but it's not a welcome direction.

Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid is easy to learn and fun to play and the variety on the characters play style make up for the lack of variety. However, the game still lacks enough content to justify playing it for more than a few hours. As a fighting game, the core is fine, but it needs a lot of improving.

Despite the issues like limited content when it comes to characters, scenarios, game modes and graphics not up to standard, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid has good gameplay and a good base over which it can build a game that lives up to what the franchise deserves.

MEDIOCRE - If you’re already a fan of Legacy Wars on mobile and absolutely need more of it in your life, this will definitely satisfy. Its limited features and lack of any real progression however, make it a hard pass for anyone outside that audience. There is a ridiculously good fighting game at its core, but it is suffering from a significant lack of polish in virtually every other department. An iconic name like Power Rangers deserves a far better console outing than this, and hopefully Hasbro wises up to this before they do something even crazier like try to port their mobile Diablo clone Power Rangers All-Stars.

Fun, nostalgic and easy to pick up, but its lack of variety make it feel rushed and unfinished. This game has the potential to be the Power Rangers, but for now, it has ended up being Bulk and Skull.

Die-hard fans of Power Rangers are likely to purchase Battle for the Grid regardless, but I’d be surprised if they play it for very long. As for anyone looking for a memorable new fighting game, I’d advise you swerve this effort and look elsewhere.

Throughout this review I feel like I’ve given Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid a pretty hard time, but It’s not the worst fighting game I’ve played in recent memory. For it’s $19.99USD price point on the PlayStation Store It has an okay value for what it contains. If they follow through with the plans for more characters on the roster and add some additional stages Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid can become a well-rounded fighter. I give Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid a Thumb Culture Bronze Award purely based on what is available at launch. It has the opportunity down the road to better itself, but for now, it’s a resounding meh.

There is fun to be had here, but it's limited by not having enough to actually do in the game. If more people were playing online it might be a different story, but it's not.
