Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star 

 

I am grateful Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code for Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star on the Nintendo Switch. This 3.0 gig downloadable game also comes in the physical copy format. We are playing in the digital realm of SE.RA.PH. The Holy Grail war is over and now it is time for a new story. I hope you understand Japanese because that is what they speak in. The words are written in English so hardcore hack and slash gamers can read along.

Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star reminds me of the Dynasty Warriors franchise. We slice and dice through thousands of characters that have little value. We beat up bigger and stronger characters to conquer a region. The goal in Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star is to get all of the regions under your control. Bear in mind the enemy will attack your conquered sections when you are no longer there.

Areas are kept separate in Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star. We warp between areas by going to the warp spot and pressing 'B'. I like this better than running around for massive amounts of time like we do in Dynasty Warriors games. The issues families will have with Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star are violence, profanity, lack of attire, enticement to lust, sexual innuendo, nudity, magic, demons, false gods, and atheism promoted. In fact I did not find anything to support the Judea-Christian belief set in Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star.

I ran into lag issues while playing Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star. Were the bath scenes really needed in Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star? The bonding system made me feel like it was part dating sim, and part hack and slash. There is plenty of talking, and cut scenes in Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star. They can be skipped by pressing the plus sign twice in a row. I got bored with the talking and the religious beliefs this game is teaching.

Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star is an extremely strong 'T' rated video game. Some of the content could easily have made this a 'M' (SEVENTEEN and OLDER ONLY) video game in my opinion. I got tired of conquering area after area in the maps. It became the same thing over and over again in each of the regions. The only thing that changed is when some powerful warrior appeared and attacked me.

I wish Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star included English voice acting. I also do not understand why there was a need for bad language in Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star. This is a fantasy world after all. Why can't game creators be creative with language? Why not make up some words that no one knows instead of using swear words? If you are into Dynasty Warriors games and want to see a different universe (and you are old enough), then you might take an interest in Fate/EXTELLA The Umbral Star on the Nintendo Switch. I expect it will be on sale for Black Friday.
