When Jump Force launched back in 2019, we called the game a “disappointment for fighting game fans and anime fans alike.”
“Playing Jump Force for extended periods of time just feels like you’re going through the motions,” reads our review. ” Once you’ve gotten to grips with some of the more “advanced” techniques in your arsenal, you won’t come across much of a challenge. It’s the Best Bits compilation albeit with the editor’s OC inserted just for s***s and giggles. There’s very little to like here.”
