Doesn’t mean I think it’s worth a full price tag purchase, but fans of the Joestars should find enjoyment in it. Everybody else, consult and test with your Bizarre Adventure-loving friend before dropping any coin on Eyes of Heaven.

This is all stuff that a player can get used to given time and patience, and the quality of JoJo’s fanservice in the game is unimpeachable, enough that a forgiving fan can find much to enjoy in the package. All the same, it’s impossible to get past the impression that the game’s design is a distinctly B-team effort, driven more by a desire to differentiate from Cyberconnect2’s other flagship games than by improving on them or going with what’s worked. Simply put, we’re still looking for that definitive JoJo's game, because JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven isn’t it.

Despite its fantastic combat mechanics and interesting premise for the story though, I feel that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is a bit of a hard sell. The main issue is that the game is somewhat hamstrung by the IP being used. This isn’t to say that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is bad, more that the tie-in nature of the game has limited appeal. If you like the manga or anime though, this is a fun time.
