In all, Extella is an excellent both as a Fate/ series game and a Warriors style beat em’ up and should appease fans of both until an entry in either comes out in the future. The biggest issues here is the forgettable music, strange looking art for some characters, and a story steeped in Fate/ universe lore, but none of these hurt the game enough to make it an experience not worth playing through.
I love the relationships in Mass Effect and Dragon Age titles, and I love basically trying to sleep with everyone. Not even going to lie about it. But a big part of Fate/Extella is how you nurture and grow relationships with your warriors, and it’s just way too soft-core porn on Cinemax for me. It just doesn’t work. It comes off as poor spanktro-fiction, and I’m not here for it.
The fighting controls are tight and responsive, and the action is intense. The lack of enemy variation was disappointing, but it didn’t take away from the frenetic fun of pulling off well animated combos against thousands of aggressors. This game might not be for newcomers to the Fate series, but offers a fun and impressive story arc to the franchise.
