Kill La Kill If takes most of its gameplay and combat mechanics from past 3D anime fighters like ‘Jump Force’ and ‘Naruto the Ultimate Ninja Series’. At first glance, while the game seems to offer everything that one might expect 3D anime fighters to offer and from a beloved animated series; Kill la Kill If mostly doesn’t hold up to the view for long. The combat is loose and badly designed and feels sluggish a lot of the times, making the losing many a time unfair. Other than that, the combat is in itself limiting, with only three ranges of attack, a melee attack -mostly close range one-, a long range attack, and special move. These are specific to the character you are playing but do become limited and repetitive after a while.
The camera also extremely badly designed rather than focusing on the character the combat cam instead freely floats around sometimes pushing you out of focus or in the background. This really hinder you from putting up a good fight. With fighting already unfair, the game also forces you to finish at least half the campaign to even unlock online play. As a retelling of the story the game leaves out a lot of context clearly expecting the player to have seen the entire series.
