  1. A sublime blend of old and new, Battle Fantasia has both the hardcore mechanics and depth to attract devout beat-’em-up fanatics and the style, polish and approachability to rope in the less devoted gamer. It could use a few more characters and perhaps a little more substance but still, BF is easily one of the better fighting games to grace the current generation of consoles so far. [JPN Import]
  2. There are only a few fighters that are more lighthearted and pick-up-and-play-enjoyable than Battle Fantasia, but such whimsy and simplicity come at a premium price in the land of fighting games.
  3. Considering this game hails from the same company that created the insanity that is Guilty Gear, you might expect Battle Fantasia to play as fast as the Flash with a caffeine buzz. While it offers up a fair amount of craziness, BF turns out to be a slightly slower, more technical fighter.
  4. With its unique art style, eclectic characters and accessible gameplay it's an easy and fun little way to get back into beat-'em-ups. [Issue#43, p.99]
  5. The most accessible fighting game on 360. [Feb 2009, p.86]
  6. There's fun to be had with Battle Fantasia. It's a title that's reasonably easy to pick up and play but has enough technical depth to take some time to master. There isn't enough depth in the content and fighting to appeal to the hardcore fighting game fan.
  7. Battle Fantasia is indeed an original product, different from other titles of the same genre. A gameplay too easy and boring completely spoils the fun, placing this title way below Arc System Works standards.

    The final boss can be beaten on the hardest difficulty by spamming the same move the entire match, i think that was supposed to be in your review of SF4. Expand
