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.
Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star packs plenty of promise, but falls short in certain areas. Gratifying combat can’t outweigh an experience that is too readily prepared to let players sit and read through great lengths of text. When you eventually get to the action it can be spectacular, there just isn’t enough of it.
All in all, Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star makes for an entertaining hack and slash experience which feels right at home on the Nintendo Switch. It’s admittedly a little pricey at £49.99, but for those looking for some Dynasty Warriors style action, it fits the bill quite nicely, and those familiar with the Fate franchise will also get a kick out of its story which features many familiar faces.
