Jump Force is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more coverage on the fighting game, click here. For our thoughts out the Bandai Namco title, make sure to peep our official review.

"However, that doesn’t mean the game is for everyone. Jump Force may draw in anime fans of all backgrounds, but it won’t suit casual gamers or those who dislike 3D fighters," reads a snippet from the review. "The game doesn't lend itself to button-mashing, and its fights require a bit of patience and even better timing."

"No matter which way you slice it, Jump Force isn’t the game fans dreamed it would be upon its announcement, but it will excite anime fans who’ve got a thing for 3D fighters. If you can see past its abysmal story mode and questionable animation, Jump Force clearly put its focus on fighting. The battles can be crisp, dynamic, and challenging enough to keep those invested coming back. However, as soon as a victor is crowned, Jump Force goes back to being a shonen spectacle with a shocking lack of substance."
