Fate/Extella Link is proof that an idea can succeed over time, even if it doesn’t exactly catch on at first. It’s totally okay to jump in and have fun here with all the interesting characters, but it’s also a heck of a ride to try and take in all the context. While the first game is divisive, you can also check out Fate/Extra Last Encore on Netflix as an alternative, then get your feet wet with the first Extella, then really dive into Extella Link.
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.
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.
