What in the world happened with MultiVersus?!
MultiVersus is a fighting game filled with a ton of classic Warner Brothers brand characters. You’ve got Batman, Bugs Bunny, Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, the Iron Giant, the list goes on! The roster is filled to the brim with what looks to be a non-stop good time, but the gameplay itself definitely needs a tune-up.
The game itself is an obvious clone of Super Smash Brothers, the nintendo smash hit. But that’s not really the problem. The gameplay itself is pretty sluggish, and definitely needs some work. Nickelodeon, Sony, and many others have tried to make a Smash Brothers-like game and it has been proven time and time again that you just can’t hold a torch up to nintendo, they have it on lock!
MultiVersus is in it’s open beta phase, so I’ll cut it some slack. They game just released a couple weeks ago, so it’s still incredibly new. However, it still feels like the day after it released it just sunk to the bottom of what everyone was thinking about.
The game itself is easy to pick up and it’s easy to have a good time. But the problem seems to arise when keeping that good time alive. After the third match, you get over it, just like all fighting games it’s the same thing over and over and over again. Now, I can totally see how mastering a character, really putting in the hours to learn how to play and win as a character is appealing. However, the game is a little too easy to really want to grind out and learn everything there is to know about a character. 3 games in as Harley Quinn and I guarantee you’ll be doing combos as her that’ll make it seem like you’ve been mastering her moveset since you got out of the womb.
Moral of the story, the game gets boring pretty fast, and it seems like it’s not just me whose realized it because barely anyone is talking about this game anymore and it just came out. Hopefully they start really polishing the game and iron out some of the not so good quirks, but like I said before, it has been shown again and again that trying to make a game to compete with Super Smash Bros. always has a hard time working out. I will say this, the game is fun, especially with friends, and picking it up the controller and playing a few quick rounds is enjoyable. It’s just that longevity that’s the issue.
