Fate/Extella Link is a delight. It takes beloved characters from a beloved anime franchise, and then appropriates the Koei Tecmo Warriors gameplay structure with such style and panache that Koei should be taking some notes itself. If only the developers hadn't gone with the ham-fisted sci-fi elements. Fate doesn't need that stuff.
There’s a ton of content here, a lot of fun characters, lots of depth to the combat, and even a goofy multiplayer mode to boot. It isn’t the most well-written game in the series, but as a high-octane action game, it delivers plenty.
well they notice what the prequel done wrong and make the game better BARVO.
but still they choose add more origin character in game this is fate-verse (NASU) please add some new legend character may be Galileo,Adam, there should be more character more from other than in Anime,VN or FGO mobile or original like Emiya(Archer) to and more variety in the game just say so.
Fate/Extella Link is a significant step-up to Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star. Its story may be shorter and more comparable to a gaiden, but I think it’s more important to nail down and refine its gameplay systems first and foremost. It’s a game for fans of Fate and fans of the hack n’ slash musou genre. I like both a lot, so seeing it get significantly better works for me. There are still some things I’d like to see improved with more elaborate stages and better graphical fidelity, but Extella Link tries its best with baby steps in those areas. Regardless, the game is a blast to play.
Even though Fate/Extella Link feels a lot like its predecessor, it's still a much-improved game that'll keep you hacking and slashing for hours. Its super-fun 8 player online component is just the icing on the cake.
It works best when there is a decent cast of characters that fans want to see more of, and Fate has that in spades. Even with 26 playable characters here, it's barely scratching the surface of the roster available. That being said, this doesn't feel like much of an improvement over the Umbral Star, feeling more like a DLC - More of the same, and something only for hardcore fans.
If you played the last game, The Umbral Star, this is a step up in many directions. Extella Link improves on many things that its predecessor game set up the foundation for, as well as addressing many user feedback from the first game.
Story: The story can split up the playerbase into two sections. Players who liked the complexity and time-looping etc of the first game, and players who got way too confused on what was going on. Extella Link takes a simplistic story approach that is the complete opposite on The Umbral Star. While this appeals to players, and probably addresses player concerns on the convoluted story from the previous game, since the Fate Series/Nasuverse series is known for great stories, this may certainly be Link's weakest point. In addition, there is one key part of Link's story that completely contradicts what we knew in the Umbral Star (and is not explained), which also confuses players who played the previous game. Story: 6/10
Gameplay: The gameplay in Link is really fun. The gameplay is more flexible in how you want to take over sectors, and super moves like Noble Phantasms are tuned for moderate use rather than a one-time-use. Skills can be customized and each Servant has a unique playstyle that devastates enemies. Compared to other Musou games, like the Dynasty Warriors series, each Servant feels more unique and different than the generals/officers in Dynasty warriors. Gameplay: 9/10.
Graphics & Sound: The graphics make a tremendous improvement from the previous game. The japanese voice lines feel powerful and follow many of the famous quotes FATE players know from either the VN/Anime or from the mobile game FGO. In addition, they added subtitles for the Noble Phantasms which is a good quality of life improvement for the NA/EU playerbase. Graphics & Sound :9/10
Overall: Because of the many improvements in gameplay and graphics, I'm willing to overlook the story for this game, and hope they improve on it on the next iteration, given enough support. Considering all the improvements and how fun it is to play, I'd give it a 8.5/10.
Pretty good game, this episode is like the small continuation of a dream, after all the hardships the protagonist and his servants went through, they finally have a family, and a little girl to take care of. The little bits of interactions they had (not much though sadly) and the way they care for each other in this episode made me smile because I knew it was what they wanted through all three previous episodes (and particularly CCC). Anyway, it is stated to be a filler episode, here to give us some appetizers before the true sequel, and as such I will say that it's a pretty decent game, with better mechanics and graphics than previous games, it is also fun and gives you a way to just rush and destroy everything in your path with your favorite servant, and despite a simple story where you just beat a bad guy who wants to control ****, I think it's pretty ok, as we got a little something which is really fun to play while we wait for the true sequel for which I will have much much more expectations. Considering this game as it is and it's purpose, that's why I will give it a 9/10. Definitely a good game to kill time while enjoying a side story of the Extraverse.
Marvelous learned their lesson from Umbral Star. Link improves several gameplay aspects and makes it way more interesting than it's predecessor. EM spamming is gone and instead we have a very interesting active skill system and fast charging ultimate ability, this makes the missions go faster now.
The story for this game is not very interesting, but the chemistry between the cast can provide funny gags and makes it a fun experience. Sadly, with the futuristic AI time traveling focus of the Fate Extra and Extella lore, the storylines for this franchise can be very convoluted and confusing to follow.
Link also provides online PvP and a large number of individual scenarios not linked to the campaign. There are more unlockable costumes for every character and some even receive DLC costumes.
The game also brings an improved and larger roster of characters, and thanks to the gameplay changes, you'll notice changes on the playstyle according to you who are using.
Very recommended game if you like musou games and the Fate franchise.
rst and foremost, I'm an avid Fate fckboi, played the VN's, watched the anime shows, read the LN, you name it. I liked the first game, it had an interesting plot, a lot of servants had a placement in the story. People hated it due to dodgy gameplay.
