There's a lot to admire in Arc System Works' latest, but it's undone by some familiar faults.

Though light on characters and story, Granblue Fantasy: Versus is another excellent addition to the ArcSys family.

A great game for novice fighting game players, with some interestingly unique ideas, but the bland fantasy world and lack of playable characters lessen its impact.

Arc System Works' fighting game based on the popular Japanese mobile RPG is mechanically sound and introduces some interesting ideas.

Granblue Fantasy Versus is a fantastic new fighting game that more than justifies its existence in an already overcrowded genre.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus might not fulfill your dreams of providing a deep RPG and fighter in one, but given that the bulk of the game is focused on what Arc knows best, it's easier to overlook that sin. Hardcore players might scoff at the lower ceiling compared to other fighters, but there's a lot of potential here, and the meta will only continue to evolve.

A spectacle in visual and soundtrack terms with the seal of quality of Arc System Works, although it lacks in game modes and the Story becomes repetitive too soon. Luckily it's a pretty accesible fighter, so anyone can enjoy the epicness of the battles.

Granblue Fantasy: Versus is an interesting game, both mechanically sound and simple with a diverse roster. Absolutely gorgeous to behold, and mostly pleasant to hear, this is the sort of fighting game esports was made for. It's such a shame then that the single player content doesn't hit the mark, especially the often frustrating RPG Mode.

Even with its issues, Granblue Fantasy Versus is still hands-down one of the most beautiful and accessible fighters I’ve played in years, and with its prominent place on the mainstage at EVO 2020 and other major fighting game tournaments, I can’t wait to see how Cygames and Arc System Works support it throughout the year.
