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.
The fighting and visuals of the Rangers (and Goldar) are decent, but the modes, unlockables, and incentives to keep playing are limited
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.
Surprisingly deep and fun to play, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid lacks contents to remain engaging in the long term.

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.
It has all the makings of a great fighter but just feels slightly sluggish in several areas. Although this is a nice first step in what could be a promising series from developers nWay and I look forward to what they do next with this franchise.
At the end of the day, Battle for the Grid is a solid fighting game. In fact, it is a really good one.
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…
In short, a simple title in its staging, complex to master, but very accessible and fun for any type of player.

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.

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.
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 Rangers: Battle for the Gird had a lot of potential as a fighting game, but it ends up squandering most of it with a lack of content.
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.
A mediocre fighting game and a poor representation of the Power Rangers franchise. Battle for the Grid is an uninspired, characterless game with few redeeming qualities.
The best way to explain Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is that it has the potential to be great, it just isn’t close to being there.
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.
Power Rangers Battle for the Grid was undoubtedly a lot of fun to play. It does a great job of making the game easy for beginners to learn and feel enjoyable for the more experienced player. Despite not knowing many of the characters, I still enjoyed playing through the game.
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.
As an early adopter of Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, it's a delight to see nWay listening to the initial issues and addressing them as thoroughly as they have. Rosters and stages have increased exponentially and by focusing firmly on the Shattered Grid storyline of the comics, have created a fanboys dream in terms of a story mode. Mostly all series are represented here and with game expansions and updates being added constantly, if your favourite isn't there, rest assured they are coming. Fans are also being consulted on next additions which is really appreciated. At its core, there has always been an in-depth well crafted fighting game on offer, but now with all the bells and whistles raising it to a real contender for the fighting game throne. This has got the power.
