North America Retail Box ArtAre you sick of fighting games that require months of practice just to master the basic moves? Try JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, a side-scrolling 2-D fighting game that puts the focus squarely on kicking butt. And along with the great controls and colorful graphics that look like they were ripped straight out of a cartoon, players are treated to a fairly entertaining story as the game progresses. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure adds a few more twists to the standard 2-D fighting genre, and the strangest are the sidekicks called Stands that each player has. These familiars occasionally enter the fray when the action heats up, and combined attacks with the characters and the Stands are the most powerful in the game. The onscreen action can get a little confusing since so many things are happening at once, but the simplistic controls help keep things manageable. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is not the best 2-D fighting game ever made--in fact, in many ways it seems downright dated when compared to superior 3-D fighters such as Soul Calibur and Dead or Alive 2. However, if you are seeking a simple fighting fix, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure does make a solid and colorful addition to the Dreamcast lineup. --T. Byrl Baker Pros: Cartoon graphics and story line Simple controls make the game easy to learn Cons: Not a deep enough fighting game for purists
