JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle is a 3D fighting game based on the Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure manga series. Exclusive to the PS3 console, the game features diverse characters from the manga and it covers various story arcs from the manga.
Players can control any fighter to fight against other characters. You fight them till their stamina bar finishes. If a round doesn’t end before the timer runs out, the fighter with the most stamina wins the round. The game features about 30 characters from the manga. The characters are from all the story arcs. As in other fighting games, each character has their own special attacks and moves. Each character utilizes one out of five main battle styles. You have the usual block button and other buttons for light and heavy attacks. You can unleash combos and special moves using a combination of the buttons.
As your character deals or receives damage, their Heart Heat gauge fills up. Once it fills up to a certain level, you can unleash a Heart Heat attack. Let the gauge fill up further and you can unleash a Great Heat attack.
Special Finishing Moves
The game has special finishing moves just like the Fatality and the Brutality finishing moves in the Mortal Kombat series of games. The special finishing moves come with dramatic animations from the manga. You trigger them by finishing your enemy using a super move in specific areas of the fighting arena.
The fighting arenas in the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Adventure are taken from locations in the manga. Fans of the manga will recognize these locations. If characters fall down in certain areas of the arena, they trigger some hazards that deplete their health. You can turn off the stage effects if you wish.
The game comes with various game modes. There is a story mode where you can experience an original story that cycles through all eight story arcs. The story mode does a good job of depicting some scenes from the manga. If you complete the story mode of any part, you can replay the story using the villain. This introduces a new dimension to the story. You are rewarded with coins for completing each story.
The online campaign mode allows you to fight random computer characters and characters created by other players. Different random events occur in this game mode, offering you an element of unpredictability with every match. If you win matches in this mode, you get various cosmetic rewards.
