Granblue Fantasy: Versus
Top Critic Average
This might be the first time in which a fighting game with such a horrendously small roster size hasn’t infuriated me to death. Granblue Fantasy: Versus‘ single player campaign is so lengthy and enjoyable that it made me almost forget that there’s also an arcade mode in it. It felt more like a side-scrolling action RPG first with an arcade fighting mode added as a bonus, and I’m fine with that.
Granblue Fantasy: Versus is a game that has something to offer to a wide variety of fans. Arc System Works and Cygames created a game that is approachable to newcomers, while still meeting the expectations of long-time fans of the franchise and fighting games alike.
Overall, I came in knowing very little about Granblue Fantasy, and I came out not knowing much more. Despite this, Granblue Fantasy Versus is a unique and competent fighter.
These presentation issues definitely temper my excitement for what is easily one of the more accessible fighting games I’ve had the opportunity to play. Then again, that feeling of accessibility likely comes from the fact that I’ve mostly focused on the single-player mode here – a mode that everyone, not just fighting gamers, can enjoy.
It’s easy to see why the Granblue series is popular in Japan and hopefully this title will convince you too. Granblue Fantasy Versus is a fun and addictive new challenger to the fighting game throne.
Granblue Fantasy: Versus is a fun, flashy and accessible fighting game, but it's weighed down by sparse content and questionable DLC.
Granblue Fantasy Versus has a few issues, but it’s an excellent game for fighting game newcomers and people who want a simpler fighter for a change. The story is thin and repetitive, but the varied characters and strong visuals mostly make up for these issues.
Granblue Fantasy Versus, is another essential game for digital fighting enthusiasts. Although it is a franchise little recognized in the West, its history, characters and above all gameplay will certainly bring this title to the fore and to competitive stages. This is a high quality product, the same one that arc system works has already accustomed us to.
