REVIEW: Granblue Fantasy: Relink (2024 Video Game) on Playstation

Review by Jon Donnis

Granblue Fantasy: Relink from Cygames for PlayStation consoles is an enthralling journey into the fantastical Sky Realm. Set amidst floating islands and guarded by primal beasts, players assume the role of a skyfaring captain, accompanied by the endearing Vyrn and mysterious Lyria, embarking on a quest for the mythical island of Estalucia. As the narrative unfolds, players delve into a web of intrigue, battling for the fate of the Sky Realm itself.

At the heart of Granblue Fantasy: Relink lies its exhilarating real-time combat system. Players assemble a party of four from a diverse roster of skyfarers, each wielding unique weapons and combat styles. The game seamlessly blends fast-paced action with strategic depth, offering mechanics like Link Attacks and Chain Bursts to facilitate thrilling battles. Whether tackling quests solo or in 4-player co-op, every encounter presents a challenge that demands tactical acumen. Additionally, accessibility features such as Assist Modes cater to players of all skill levels, ensuring an inclusive experience.

Exploration and immersion are further enhanced by the game's rich lore and expansive world-building. Lyria's journal serves as a repository of knowledge, offering insights into the Sky Realm's inhabitants and history. Fate Episodes provide deeper character development, allowing players to uncover the backstories of their crewmates. With a plethora of side quests and exploration opportunities, Granblue Fantasy: Relink offers a wealth of content to uncover.

The latest update introduces two new playable characters, Seofon and Tweyen, along with quests featuring all-new monsters. These additions expand the already diverse roster of skyfarers and provide fresh challenges for players to conquer. Whether unlocking characters through gameplay achievements or opting for the Character Expansion Set, the update adds further depth to an already robust experience.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink stands out as one of the most mechanically deep and rewarding action-RPGs in recent memory. Its easy-to-learn yet difficult-to-master combat system is complemented by a captivating world and cast of characters. The game offers a substantial single-player experience alongside generous multiplayer offerings, ensuring ample content for players to explore. With excellent combat mechanics, cinematic moments, and strong character development, Granblue Fantasy: Relink delivers an exhilarating and immersive experience.

While the gameplay shines, the narrative may not reach the same heights. However, the game's overall quality is so high that any shortcomings in the story are easily overshadowed by its other strengths.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink exceeds expectations, offering an almost perfect action RPG experience. With its engaging combat, rich lore, and expansive world, it captivates players from start to finish. Despite minor narrative flaws, the game's exceptional quality and depth make it a must-play for fans of the genre. Granblue Fantasy: Relink sets a new standard for action RPGs, delivering a fast, dramatic, and enthralling adventure in the Sky Realm.

I love Granblue Fantasy: Relink as award it a very strong 9 out of 10.
