With a little patience, you can pretty good at this game. Yet if you spend enough time in these trenches, you’ll end up better at all of them. While it’s not perfect, Fantasy Strike is a rock-solid entry in the larger fighting pantheon.

Fantasy Strike isn’t going to blow anyone away aesthetically and its arcade mode is a little barebones. However, in terms of gameplay, it absolutely achieves what it sets out to, offering fun and accessible fighting action to newcomers whilst at the same time possessing enough technical depth in its roster of characters to keep more seasoned fighters interested.

7.5 / 10.0

While some folks will still prefer to tread AAA territory when it comes to their fighting games, Sirlin and his team have done a pretty good job with their debut effort. Fantasy Strike has a decent offering of characters, a gameplay system that offers value for those that get into it, adaptable controls for newcomers and pros alike, fun local multiplayer options, a decent smattering of single player content, and a nostalgic presentation to back it all up. It's good stuff, even if can't quite live up to Fantasylevel. That's okay, sometimes you need something good to settle down and have fun with.

Fantasy Strike delivers on its promise to make a fighting game easy to pick up and play. It's simple to get the hang of, and characters actually have cool abilities. Still, it's lacking in content, lacking in a player base, and plagued with AI issues.

undefined.As someone who is primarily a casual fighting game fan, Fantasy Strike scratches an itch in a different way than Street Fighters and the like do. The simplicity of the control inputs puts it more in the space in between, almost like a less platforming-focused Smash Bros. The overall approachability makes it a great choice for less experienced fighters, but beneath the sheen of less combos and button inputs still lies a deep game with tense strategy, complete with a variety of ways to play it both online and off.
