James Bowden: "It’s the style that shines through, though. I said it when Persona 4 Arena came out and it stands true for Ultimax; Persona 4 Arena is the most stylish fighting game ever, and a gem of the genre to boot, thanks to its combination of appealing and genuinly cool aesthetics with ocean deep gameplay. The only thing that’s changed with Ultimax is that it’s better than ever. Lots better, actually. Sequel degrees of better, even if Arc System Works won’t shout about it."
