Bandai Namco Entertainment has released its new anime-based fighting game, “Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash“, and fans of the manga and anime series were excited… until they played it. The game was launched on February 1 and It has since received a low review score from Steam users. who commented on its limited development.
Most users have pointed out that the development team “put little effort” into this video game. The controls, the scenarios, the game interface, the systems, the story, everything seems to be disappointing for a franchise of the stature of “Jujutsu Kaisen”. Unfortunately, this is another of the video games that try to summarize the history of the franchise instead of presenting something new.
In “Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash,” players will assemble teams of two characters to engage in intense battles, defending humanity against creatures known as Curses in modern-day Tokyo at Jujutsu High School. The game offers diverse character combinations with unique synergies and power dynamics, resulting in a wide range of team attacks and explosive combos. By completing battles, players can master “cursed techniques” to upgrade each fighter’s power level, unlocking more powerful attacks as they progress.
“Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash” includes a roster of over 15 playable characters, featuring popular figures such as Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki, Gojo Satoru, Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, Panda, and the formidable Ryomen Sukuna, also known as the King of Curses. The video game is now available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Although this video game arrived at the height of the anime adaptation of “Jujutsu Kaisen”, it failed to delight fans. The franchise has gained a huge fan base thanks to its exciting plot, charismatic characters and spectacular action scenes. However, it seems that the transition to the world of video games has not been as successful as expected:
- «By heaven and earth, only I am the one scammed».
- «Nah, I’ll refund it».
- «If you don’t like anime, don’t buy it. But if you do like it, don’t buy it anyway.».
- «I was super excited, now beyond disappointed and refund. The game is super unfinished, the menu is super basic, and the story mode is screenshots from the anime. I had gotten the Ultimate Edition and I really don’t recommend spending more than $10 on this. It’s like a Naruto SUN Storm game that was released pre-alpha or something. Regrettable».
- «A damned game that lasted less than Kashimo. Don’t buy it, it’s a shit and an insult to Jujutsu Kaisen fans, much less for the current price which seems like a scam to me. I would recommend it for less than five dollars just to see dad Yuuta».
- «If Gege gives his opinion, I don’t agree. If Gege speaks, I ignore. If Gege fails, I judge him. If Gege thinks, I despise. If Gege has a thousand haters, I am one of them. If Gege has only one hater, it’s me. If Gege doesn’t have haters, it means I’m no longer alive. If the world is against Gege, I am with the world. If the world is with Gege, I am against the world. Who is Gege? In mathematics, the problem. In Spanish, the error. In history, war. In geography, environmental disasters. In religion, the devil. You’re going to fall Gege».
- «I already knew that the game was going to be made in a lazy and rushed way, but I didn’t expect it to be so poorly made. I was looking forward to playing it as soon as it came out, but there aren’t even any cutscenes. They use still images from the anime and haven’t even synchronized the speech with the characters’ mouths. Horrible for something like Jujutsu Kaisen».
- «Don’t buy it unless you can find it at 99 percent off.».
- «Better spend your money with Dragon Ball Sparking Zero».
- «It’s bad, just bad. If you’ve never played another fighting game, you like Jujutsu Kaisen A LOT, and you have the money to spare, then perfect, this game is for you! But only under those conditions. Overall disappointing, all my hype turned to disgust and disappointment for every penny I spent on it, I feel like I NEEDED to write this review even though I’m not in the habit».
- «The fights are repetitive, you can count on your fingers the movements you can do and then just repeat them over and over again for the rest of the fight, depending on the character there is a change but it’s still the same shit, repetitive and tiring to watch . The only positive point in the gameplay of this game is the differences between each character and how they function, how they deal damage, etc, but again: IT’S FUCKING REPETITIVE
- «The cast is very limited since they have only adapted the first season, so there is very little content for those who have enjoyed Jujutsu Kaisen for a longer time and they are SURE to put at least 3 DLCs into this piece of shit, with Toji for sure that soon, costing another absurd price for the average Brazilian in a MEDIOCRE game (being generous)».
