Better than SC2
October 20, 2018
I almost didn't get around to playing on the first day because it was so much fun making custom people! There are skeletons, elves, figma androids, and plenty of other choices to start off with before you turn it into something completely different.
Eventually I got around to starting story mode and I was surprised they adopted a visual novel-style delivery system for the corny but charming story, which was a welcome addition since it means there's a lot of concept art to be unlocked. There's also a story mode specifically for your OC character.
As far as the merit as a fighting game goes? This keeps with the series' strong point of using a weapon-based combat system to maintain play-style variety between characters. Ivy, Voldo, Mitsurugi, and Astaroth all control VERY differently so each time you pick someone up it's a whole new ball game. There's a very low skill floor and a mid-high skill ceiling so you can play online without being too intimidated.
