This is a game that was worthy of a rerelease via JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle R with upgraded everything for every modern platform. The mystifying visuals and proper adjustments to audio all around make this is one that should be played with your friends.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is a much better experience compared to the original title. The modes feel more tightly put together, the character roster has been expanded greatly, and the fighting feels more involved, making the experience much more fun than in the 2016 offering. Unless you're primarily an online player, this is well worth checking out.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is a beautiful retelling of a great and little-known fighting game based on one of today's most beloved franchises. With beautiful graphics, satisfying mechanics and lots of content, the remaster lacks a limited, unstable and outdated online model, in addition to little (or no) narrative context for newcomers in this bizarre world.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is one of those games that you either Love it, or you don't care about it. For the fan of JoJo's anime, This game will be familiar and lovely, and for those who have never watched it, it will be confusing and irrelevant. Art style is unique and when it comes to combat, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is not everyone's cup of tea.

For JoJo fans, this remaster is likely to be very welcome indeed. It takes a solid fighting game that arrived towards the end of the PS3’s life and not only enhances it, but also expands upon it. The result is a game that looks a bit dated visually, but still has a hell of a lot to offer, especially for those happy to simply play against the CPU or another local player. Ultimately, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R may not quite have the pizzazz to compete with the modern fighting game elite, but it certainly puts on a good show.

In the same way that "Daniel Aço'zinho" took a delirious twenty-second beating or how the Mortal Queen user suffered with an accidental ambulance in his trunks, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R delivers worthy moments during one-page fights from Araki's works, always keeping the fighting video game context in mind. Not only does it come across as a product that breathes and exudes fanservice; the ultimate package for fans of the property, but also as an extremely competent and inviting fighter for novices (to a certain extent) without ever forgetting those who demand a greater challenge. I admit that All Star Battle R lacks rollback netcode, a robust story or a greater variety in offline modes, but it makes up for it in so many other areas that I only have one last suggestion: if you are not yet a fan of the franchise then it's time to give the anime and/or manga a chance, convert and try this title as a celebration of the thirty-fifth anniversary of the most bizarre Japanese adventure ever.

Fighting games' fans will have to focus more on local multiplayer instead of online due to the infrastructure, which is a big blow.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is a fast-paced fighting title that can be played solo or with others. Furthermore, it captures every essence of the franchise and capitalises on many of the much-loved characters. With interesting stage design and tough but enjoyable challenges to complete, this will be enjoyed by many gamers.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is a great experience for fans already familiar with the original series and those that are jumping into the fighter as a result. There is a lot to love in that regard as the personality from the original manga is in full force, but there's much less of that "bizarre adventure" that is also at the core of Araki's series. The fighting has been improved, and there are plenty of characters to mess around with, but more fighting does not always equal more fun in this case.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R's main foundation is good, with a fun battle system that doesn't seem difficult, but the mediocre online multiplayer dampens some of its promises.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle R is a simple fighting game that fans can enjoy without a doubt. It doesn't excel at innovation and feels ill-balanced on certain fronts. Bottom line, it's not a bad Fight game, but certainly not the best either.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is an excellent fighter that does bode its niche base well, and could potentially extend beyond that inviting more fans into its never-ending lore.

Its online modes are bland, and its gameplay is really sluggish for modern fighting game standards, but the sheer amount of content and fan service make JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R a must-have for fans of this utterly ludicrous but endearing franchise.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R may not be a 100% new product, but it manages to kill the longing for fans who were bitter about the previous title in the series. Even leaving those who don't know the characters in the dark, its performance improvements make it a great fighting game, with a varied cast and a lot of charisma.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is a competent fighting game and a must-have for fans of the manga and anime series. Despite having elements that make it less interesting for newcomers to the genre and people who still don't know JoJo in depth, the title knows who its audience is and delivers what it promises.

Overall JoJo is a pretty solid fighter and a pretty good upgraded port to boot. Some may find the price somewhat prohibitive given the semi-bare bones modes on offer combined with the fact that we are ultimately talking about a port of a niche near decade old fighter, but if you can look past that, there's fun to be had. Jo Jo Manga/Anime fans should definitely be giving this a go.

Although Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is a great fighting game that Jojo fans should not miss, it missed the opportunity to fully reach its potential due to poor netcode selection and some shortcomings on the online side.
