    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD is peculiar, but tremendous amounts of fun. A stand-out fighter that holds up well, but ported without much love from its developers.

    It's a good HD remake of a classic Capcom fighting game, but after all these years the genre has evolved and Jojo's controls feel a bit clunky and lack enough special moves.

    A bare bones, barely HD and quite unbalanced game. [Nov 2012, p.79]

    Capcom's classic 32 bit beat'em up Jojo's Bizarre Adventure grants a second chance with this HD Ver and the solid online modes provided. Strong personality in the combat mechanics, but aged and turned slightly simplistic. Great character design with good HD fine tuning. The price, sadly, is a total turnoff.

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventures HD is a solid porting of an excellent beat'em-up which lacks noteworthy game modes in spite of a very high price. Fans of the manga or 2D beat'em-ups should definitely give it a look.

    What sours the deal, however, is the lack of care and value put into the package. JoJo's is premium-priced at $20, and there's little here to justify that cost. The "HD" upscale looks blotched and muddy, and there aren't any tutorials, special challenges, or even combo exercises to ease new players into this very demanding fighting game.

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD Edition is brilliant – the only problem is the price. There's no new content except for the online features and the visuals haven't been really upgraded, which lead us to think that the price should have been closer to the PSOne Classics on PSN. Recommended for those who love retro fighting games, as long as they ignore the price.

    At half the asking price, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure would be a worthwhile impulse purchase, as the game itself still offers some intriguing gameplay. But a bare-bones release with a premium cost is difficult to justify for all but the most ardent of fans. You're better off buying a used Dreamcast or PSone copy and firing up the old console for a trip down memory lane.

    A twenty dollar Dreamcast game that wasn't even redone. Yes, Microsoft has officially gone insane. This is Capcom and MS teaming up togetherA twenty dollar Dreamcast game that wasn't even redone. Yes, Microsoft has officially gone insane. This is Capcom and MS teaming up together with an average game from a dozen or so years ago, and knowing full well there are going to be some of you who actually buy this. They thank you.

We CAN NOT ALLOW companies like Capcom to push out rehashes and charge a premium price for them. This game is in NO WAY worth $20. DO NOT BUY IT. Full Review »
