We would have preferred a proper sequel, but the gigantic roster gives JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R that encyclopedic value that will keep Hiroiko Araki's fans busy for a long time. The partly revamped audio-visual presentation still holds up well against the weight of years, and the variety of characters is put at the service of a sufficiently complex and satisfying combat system. Too bad about the lack of rollback, but never say never.

Fighting games are living in a resurgent time so it is awesome to see this game get a second lease on life. Having never played it, it was a pleasant surprise that is packed with a ton of solo content to keep me interested. This is all without having any attachment to the anime or characters themselves. It made me interested in the universe and I had a blast playing the game on all fronts. If you enjoy fighting games and maybe are not as deep into the FGC or tournament scene, this game packs plenty of options for casual and experienced players alike.

As a vibrant and energetic revamp of a nine-year-old fighting game, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle R succeeds in breathing new life into something quite niche, with meaningful tweaks to its fighting system, new features, and more, giving it a well deserved second chance.

Despite dropping the ball in one of the most important categories for a modern fighting game, this is a fighting game that stands out from the pack, plays great, and honors its source material more than it needed to, and that certainly counts for something.

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 much better fighting game than it was on its original release. The various gameplay tweaks and the increase to 60fps on current-gen and PC bring this underrated title to life.  Unfortunately lackluster online multiplayer and lack of new characters do knock this down somewhat, but if you haven't already owned the original and are newly into JoJo you'd be downright bizarre to sit this title out.

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 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.

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.

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.
