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.

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 a good fighting game that manages to add its great visual aspect to some very satisfying playable mechanics, which are developed in a very organic way to introduce its new players to the genre. However, its character roster is too short despite the quality it treasures and its story mode is little more than an excuse to introduce each of these protagonists. With all this, this video game can be a very valid gateway for those who want to get into fighting games or the Granblue Fantasy saga.

Granblue Fantasy Versus is an interesting experiment, that can bring new users into the fighting game community… unless they're interested in the single player side: the built-in RPG does not offer a real challenge.

Arc System Works has stayed true to its creative identity bringing an action packed fighter with stunning graphics, hopefully we see them bring more franchises to the genre. And while the game does suffer from a dull RPG mode, which does well to introduce newcomers to the series but lacks depth, difficulty and becomes repetitive way too quickly. The gaming system may be different from the norm, not what fighting may gamers may have been expecting, but they will definitely want to master this system as with the DLC and exposure it's getting, Granblue Fantasy Versus is set to become a household name very soon.

A lengthy story mode, a host of characters to play as, and numerous online modes to fight your way through ensure Granblue Fantasy Versus definitely won't leave you wanting in terms of content. Learning through playing locally and online is distinctly better than relying on the game’s own resources. But if you’re looking for a casual, relatively simple fighter to play then it definitely fits the bill.

Granblue Fantasy Versus is the ultimate trick of Arc System Works: a fighter game that's easy to learn, perfect for beginners, but very satisfying at the same time.

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

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