Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash, where you can experience the thrill of being an anime character stuck in a chaotic button-mashing fest. Enjoy the stunning graphics while you try to figure out the storyline. Don’t forget to invite your friends for some lag-filled multiplayer fun!

"Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash" is a fighting video game developed by Byking and Gemdrops, and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

Gameplay 5

The gameplay of "Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash" has been described as disappointingly bland and lacking depth. The game introduces 2v2 battles as a novel concept, aiming to add an interesting twist to the combat system. However, its practical execution falls short of adding the necessary depth to make it engaging. The game's cramped arenas often devolve into chaos, particularly with four players vying for supremacy in an unbalanced roster. The strategic depth of selecting a duo that combines long-range prowess with close-quarters dominance reveals a complex tactical layer. However, long-range based characters seem to be a tad overpowered and their dominance can tilt the scales too heavily.

Graphics 8

The sole commendable aspect of "Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash" is its graphics. The game successfully emulates the visual style of the anime, including the character models and the limited number of cutscenes, which are well-animated and detailed. However, some players have expressed that the graphics look last-gen.

Storyline 6

The game's story mode attempts to follow the narrative arc seen in the Jujutsu Kaisen anime. However, the game's storytelling falls flat, offering nothing new to fans of the series. For those unfamiliar with anime or manga, the game fails to provide a coherent narrative, relying on sparse cutscenes and static artwork accompanied by poorly executed text to convey the story.

Multiplayer 4

The multiplayer aspect of the game has been criticized for its issues. Players have reported problems with co-op achievements not being granted and experiencing significant lag during online play.

Issues 3

The game has been criticized for its unbalanced gameplay, poor design choices, and an overall lack of polish. Players have reported that the game feels like a soulless cash grab that likely exists only to fleece money from unsuspecting fans of the series.

Conclusion 5

In conclusion, "Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash" is a game that had a lot of potential but ultimately fell short of expectations. The gameplay lacks depth, the graphics are outdated, the storyline is uninspiring, and the multiplayer mode is riddled with issues. The game does not live up to the high standards set by the Jujutsu Kaisen series and is a disappointment for fans. It scores a mediocre 5 out of 10 on our grading scale.

Player Quotes

"If it were $20-30 it wouldn't be as hated. But it's pretty rough. I'm stuck with it."

"Have u seen gameplay? It looks god Awful."
