JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle (PS3) Review
9 May 2014
Summary: I’ll admit I was surprised by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle. It is a bit incomprehensible at times, but the fighting engine is incredibly easy to grasp and a lot of fun to see everyone being crazy.
Summary: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is hard to explain to the neophyte. Vampires, weaponized spirits, a family with an unhealthy love for one syllable, some crazy poses that outshine what you'd normally see in fashion week.
Conclusion: All-Star Battle's incredible presentation far outclasses its slower one-on-one gameplay and adequate modes. Diehard JoJo fans will be in heaven, but the uninitiated will lose interest once the invigorating shock of the fabulous visuals wears off.
Pros: Astounding visual presentation and personality, Story and roster span decades of the manga's history
Cons: Repetitive missions in Story mode hamper the fun, Match pacing can feel too protracted, Unsavory microtransactions of Campaign mode are still intact
Summary: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is a visually ballistic and staggeringly polished fighter that offers great lip service for fans of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure while also delivering a game with enough flair to appeal to both determined and casual fans of the fighting genre.
Excerpt: I’m going to go ahead and just get this out of the way; I have not read the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga or seen the anime or even played the original game. I went into this game, which is clearly designed for fans of the series, completely blind.
Blazingly Bizarre — Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle Review
9 May 2014
Summary: In the end, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle flashes a lot of style but lacks the substance that prevents it from being a great fighter. With a large roster of characters, smooth framerate, and excellent graphics, All Star Battle could have brought Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure positive U.S.
Excerpt: I suppose after creating the absurdly and stupendously over the top Asura’s Wrath , it only made sense that CyberConnect2, the team that also develops the Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series for Bandai Namco, should have a stab at creating a fighting game for the eccentric manga and anime...
Summary: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - All Star Battle ist ein Augenschmaus. Keine Frage, wer auf Cel-Shading steht, wird sich die Finger nach diesem Spiel lecken. Trotzdem strotzt das bunte Beat 'em Up nicht gerade vor innovativen Ideen, die das Genre umkrempeln.
