If there’s one thing I can’t resist, it’s video games based on anime. I don’t know what it’s been about the past year, but it feels like more anime games are getting demos which is super great for people who may not be quite sure if a particular title is worth taking a chance on. Such is the case, for me at least, with the latest game based on Jojo’s Bizarre adventure.
I’ve watched Jojo before, but I’m not super deep into it. However, people on Twitter always seem to be going bananas about it, so there must be something special about it. The above video is my first time every playing a Jojo game and, even with my limited knowledge of the anime it’s based on, I had a blast with it. Thanks to the demo, I can tell that there is a lot to this game and it won’t be something only the hardcore fans can appreciate.
What surprised me the most about this demo was how it gives you a good grasp of this game’s cinematic presentation. Most demos and betas are happy to just put a multiplayer mode with a couple characters in front of you and say “go ham” which leaves you wondering about whether or not it can entertain you when you’re gaming solo. I got little snippets of the series’ humor and although I have yet to see Jotaro and Jean-Pierre in my JJBA viewing, I feel like i’ve known them for time.
All in all, it was a pretty good demo. For more anime/gaming content follow me on Twitter @SpiegelDFE and keep up with the latest in Geek Culture by staying on NikkiSiixx!
