Summary: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure HD Remix is a return to the early 2000s in fighting games, which is both a blessing and a curse. Some will love the nostalgia, others will hate the learning curve. Either way, it's worthy of at least one go with Jojo.
Pros: Classic 2D fighting style, A return to a bygone era
Cons: Lacks expected features, Very steep learning curve
Summary: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure isn't a bad fighting game, but it may be too weird for its own good. The 22 characters are hard to relate to and the action is often chaotic for no reason. Worse yet, the game is too expensive for the amount of content.
Summary: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. That's right, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. Not JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD Version or the much more concise JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD. Instead Capcom had to go the extra step and add "Ver." for no reason.
Conclusion: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a fairly enjoyable fighting game. It has some cool gameplay hooks that you don’t see in many fighters, but the game does a very poor job of teaching you about any of this.
