    Granblue Fantasy: Versus is a really fun and well-made fighting game, ideal for newcomers. If it offered more offline content in its standard package and a better online code was implemented, then we would highly recommend it to all fans of the genre.

    This gorgeous anime-style fantasy fighter is great for beginners and fans of 2D brawlers. It's fun, and flashy with genuinely endearing characters. However, a somewhat underdeveloped single-player experience and dated netcode hold it back from being truly top-tier.

    The control on the keyboard is the same as in most fighting games - at first it’s inconvenient, and then you get used to it.
    An interesting approach to the passage of the single-player part. The system for selecting and upgrading weapons and characters partially migrated from the original game.
    In addition to the main quests, there is also an optional quests that provides insignificant parts of the plot or a short background of the characters so that the player can learn a little about their life and personality.
    The graphics are very nice and detailed. Sometimes, due to the style, there is a feeling that some cutscenes are looks like at 15 fps, but this is not reflected in the gameplay itself.

It's easy for lower skill players to get into while still retaining a ton of depth. Each character is very unique and fills in a specific archetype, and the overall balance definitely isn't bad.
