    Should I dash forward or jump backwards risking getting hit? How do I deplete his defense meter so he doesn’t work out my attack patterns? How do I hit him during a super attack to maximize the damage? You will ask yourself such questions a lot while playing Yatagarasu – and that’s what makes fighting game great. [10/2015, p.63]

    Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm is aimed at the very niche audience who genuinely champion gameplay over graphical achievements, and who aren't afraid of putting in some hard work to get the most out of it. Given its Indiegogo campaign, this game had the potential to become one of the worst cases of buyer's remorse that I've ever had, but it turned out beautifully in the end. Weird PC port quibbles notwithstanding, of course.

    Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm is a technical beat'em up, designed for the professionals.

    Unfortunately, it’s not a very complete package largely alienates anyone who isn’t already familiar with fighters, making it a tough sell for people looking for a casual experience.

    It might not be as easy on the eye as its 2015 contemporaries, but it's an awful lot more honest. [Sept 2015, p.120]

    A solid fighting core surrounded by a very bare bones, somewhat unoptimised package. [Sept 2015, p.60]

    Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm is a great old school fighting game, with an awesome fighting system and superb animations and character design. The lack of polish, and an old fashioned online mode, could be a big issue for modern players.
