Right off the bat, the game has a bit of an entry hurdle in that if you are unfamiliar with the Fate series, there are a lot of concepts and terms that, while the game does make a bit of an effort to explain, will be for the most part alien to newcomers. There are also several characters whose mere presence in the game is a spoiler for previously released games in the series. However, the hurdle isn't insanely high for a dedicated otaku and watching a couple of pretty damn decent series should set you up with the necessary lore.
Fate/Grand Order is a Free-to-Play Mobile RPG with asynchronous multiplayer that takes place in the Fate Universe (Nasuverse) which has spawned several novels, anime and games. Players take on the role of a Master and can control up to six servants in a party (mana willing) as they take part in a main storyline that involves traveling through time to deal with historic anomalies. Servants are representatives of "Heroic Spirits" which are figures from history and legend and each one has their own class, abilities and stats. Make use of a counter-system within the classes in order to plan your way to victory as you utilize each class to its full potential: Saber, Lancer, Archer, Rider, Assassin, Berserker, Caster and even Ruler. Show off your Servants to your friends and have your friend's Leader Servant join you in battle.
Players are frequently encouraged to visit the in-app store. Players can search for friends via Friend Code, but the app contains no player profile or chat function. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.
The main issue is that it soon becomes repetitive. Choosing cards and watching the Servants complete does not feel interactive or satisfying. In addition, the battles are often drawn out because the player is unable to skip animations. Watching a character execute the same movement for the hundredth time is enough to make a gamer want to force-quit the app. The gameplay of "Fate/Grand Order" definitely has room for improvement. Regarding the basic mechanics, the player controls three "Servants" who fight against waves of enemies in turn-based combat. On every turn, the player chooses three cards red, blue or green in order to command the Servants order of attack. Occasionally, a special skill may be used that is unique to each Servant.
