Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid Reviews
Flaws aside, this is the best Power Rangers game so far and I can only hope that nWay continues to create and iterate within this franchise. Battle for the Grid is a stellar game for Power Rangers fans and it was clearly made by people with equal love for these heroes.
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.
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.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid isn’t a bad game it’s just one that isn’t living up to its potential and that to me is what is really disappointing about it.
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.

There's so little content in the game, that only die hard fans could consider this a "morphin time".

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is today a competent fighting game, and the best game based on the Saban franchise. With the addition of the story mode, the free characters, and the three paid seasons that add more fighters and content, we can already begin to consider the work of nWay as a fighting game to consider - even for those who do not have no interest in the franchise - and for fans, the inclusion of some of the voices of the original actors offers a much more complete and engaging product.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is a shockingly great fighter, with well-balanced mechanics and a lot of fun combat to be had. The mechanics and flow of this fighter work great and it could very well have the potential to be among the higher-tier Power Rangers games out there. The big problem with this game is that it’s very lacking on actual content, especially of the offline variety, and while there are more characters planned, it’s disappointing to see stuff like extra costumes locked behind the preorder DLC rather than being something you could unlock through single player play.
While not the most polished fighting game available, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid's gameplay and presentation makes it shine like a diamond in the rough, making it appropriate only for diehard Power Rangers fans and hardcore fighting game fans.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is a perfect fighting game. For button-masher that is. The pro won't find here anything that will keep them in the game for more than a few fights. Unless they love Power Rangers. But even though they might... Why bother?

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is the first good Power Rangers game in so long. While I’ve enjoyed the mobile-only Power Rangers: Legacy Wars for some time, I was really only wanting a story and more offline modes, and this has that in full. I recommend this game to any Power Rangers fan past or present, but let it be known that at this time the story mode is the best thing on offer, and its roster is rather lacking for such a rich and established history to draw from. That said, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is a love letter to the franchise, and just needs time to mature to be something great with more additions.
Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid is easy to learn and fun to play and the different play styles on the characters 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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
