    Jump Force still has problems in the current version. The balancing could still use fine tuning, the lobby is awkward, and the constant load times are annoying. Nevertheless, I enjoy the game, especially after I came to understand the combat system. Of course, it's not as complicated and diverse as a classic 2D examiner, but it's still a pleasure to try all your abilities.

    What this game is really about is fan service and I must admit that it succeeds in offering folks up a hefty chunk in that department. Jump Force knows that it’s really for the Shonen Jump fans and if you are a fan there’s plenty to like here. One would probably be better off focusing on the core fighting game aspects though.

    Like the Dissidia series, Jump Force is something I'm going to be coming back to for random bits of fun throughout the years.

    Jump Force could have been another great fighter but is held back by dreadful animation, a tiresome main hub, questionable mechanics and a lackluster story. Fans looking for the next great thing in Anime Fighters will likely be left unimpressed and wanting.

    Jump Force is the perfect example of good intentions with poor execution. I personally feel sorry for diehard fans who were really looking forward to a game that had so much potential. Unfortunately, all anyone got was a box of disappointment and relentless loading times. As a whole, Jump Force comes off half baked and unfulfilling. I honestly wish I had more good things to say about this game but even now I’m hard pressed. The most positive thing I can say about this game is that it could be a starting point for a brand new series of games. Even though this game is in dire need of fixing, I have hopes that redemption can be made with a solid sequel if done right.

    Crossover games are nothing new to Bandai Namco or Shonen Jump, so it surprises and disappoints me to see that none of the good aspects or successful mechanics of these previous games made their way into Jump Force at all. Jump Force is a visual mess, It lacks the fun and charm that a wild crossover like this should embrace, and It's just a technical mess from top to bottom. Jump Force is a huge celebration of some of the most iconic manga in history, but it fails to do any of them justice.

    I feel like people nowadays just decide to be biased about everything. Story mode and cutscenes could have definitely been more polished butI feel like people nowadays just decide to be biased about everything. Story mode and cutscenes could have definitely been more polished but realistically that is not the reason to buy a fighting game. In that aspect the game really shines. Each character has some sort of a small learning and can also get very tense in close matches leaving a feeling of satisfaction if one succeeds. Within a few more updates I feel the game will become even more smooth. Character customization can also improved slightly with more varied attacks but overall I feel satisfied with the end product I got. Expand

    Cool graphic but I think the artwork is somewhat off. Weird combat and not enough boob slider although Hancock's boobs are big.

Me gusta el estilo artístico pero este juego parece que va directo al mercado occidental y en eso ya va mal pues el Anime no es en general para occidente, llenaron de personajes que son mas conocidos al rededor del mundo pero ninguno que fuera especial en Japón, el juego esta repleto de personajes de Dragon Ball y si eso no parece tan mal también hay muchos de One Piece y Naruto, el juego es aburrido, las batallas son tediosas y aparte del apartado artístico deja debiendo mucho pretendiendo ser un juego para occidente pero falla en muchos aspectos a pesar de que denota esfuerzo y ganas de querer hacerlo, un retraso de 9 meses para añadir personajes menos conocidos y mas mecánicas estuviera genial, el juego es solo pegar puñetazos y ya, la historia es horrible para lo que pudo ser, espero que lo mejoren en actualizaciones de contenido por que de este le falta mucho.

    Once u start playing this game, u will notice that everything is mediocre or below mediocre.
    Story is something
    Where should i start....
    Once u start playing this game, u will notice that everything is mediocre or below mediocre.

    Story is something you have seen for the 348th time. Its like a 4 years old made the story.

    The fighting in the game is actually not bad but not well made. Especially when the enemy blocks, u can't do much except grabbing him or load your Auto-attack. When u grab the enemy it doesn't to much dmg but throwing him for like 30m away and can't even combo him afterwards. When u try to load your Auto-attack its a big punishment for yourself cause it takes to long. So the enemy can cancel his block and immediately cast his ability or even his ultimate and you can't do anything about it but took huge dmg especially when enemy uses his ultimate.
    But the greatest thing when your fighting against AI, u do absoluetly no dmg and AI uses 2-3 Skills and your dead. Every Skill, punch,grab or combos are dealing much much much much more Dmg when Ai is doing it.
    Example: You cast your Ultimate attack and you do about 8%-15% Dmg but when Ai is using Ult it does 40%-60% Dmg. Its super mega ultra ridiculous and frustrating at the same time. Your using so much Combos and skills and the AI still has 40%Hp left. But they do 1 combo and ult and your dead. What is this????????????????????????????????????????????????

    The most disappointment in the game are the Cosmetics (Outfit/Armor/Clothes). There is absolutley nothing new or special but the same Outfits there are already in the game like u can buy an outfit for goku, vegeta, ruffy, midoriya, ect . U can buy single armor-pieces and combine them but there is no a Wow-effect. U can dress the same as naruto or gaara or combine them together, thats it. Bandai didn't make anything on their own, like outfits that aren't in the Anime-universe, u know something that u can actually combine together and say: wow thats sick. Absolutely nothing new. Its depressing. The worst they did to cosmetics are that u can't even change colors???

    Example: There are like 5 Piccolo shoulder armors (those with wide shoulders) that are white but each with different t-shirt-color. So if you buy one armor that has a t-shirt with the color pink but u want it do be red u have to buy that armor piece again for 5k gold....... Sad.
