Overall, Fate/Extella Link is a solid Musou that channels the best of the genre and coats it with a bucket of fresh Fate/ themed paint. The battles are exciting, and changes to them make things flow better and feel more satisfying overall. While That being said, it is a bit lacking in the story department, and it could stand to focus more on other characters rather than giving the entire plot to Charlemagne and the main villain.
Fate/Extella Link is a significant step-up to Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star. Its story may be shorter and more comparable to a gaiden, but I think it’s more important to nail down and refine its gameplay systems first and foremost. It’s a game for fans of Fate and fans of the hack n’ slash musou genre. I like both a lot, so seeing it get significantly better works for me.
As far as Warriors-style action games go, Fate Extella Link is near the top of the pile on PS4 -- it's a robust and refined sequel that fans of the genre shouldn't miss out on. The process of levelling up, collecting skills, and bonding with your favourite Fate characters is both satisfying and rewarding, and although repetition does become a factor later on, the flashy combat has enough kick to keep you engaged.
