Meristation (May 22, 2000)
Cada nuevo beat'em up que el auténtico rey Midas del género saca a la luz siempre es motivo de espectación, y no es para menos, ya que Capcom cuenta con una dilatada y productiva trayectoria dentro de los juegos de lucha como para dejar pasar por alto un nuevo trabajo de la compañía japonesa.

GameSpot (Dec 10, 1999)
So if you're into your 2D fighters, but have begun to grow tired of the countless Street Fighter spin-offs and bad home conversions, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure offers fine-tuned Capcom quality with a unique storyline and great control. That alone is worth its weight in gold. This one belongs in every fighting-game fan's library.

Durch die opulent mit zahlreichen Details versehenen Kämpfer und Moves ist es oft schwer, zwischen Block und Treffer (von wem?) zu unterscheiden. Mit den im Story-Modus auf eurer Reise von Japan über China, Indien und Arabien bis nach Europa auftretenden Mini-Games hat man sich auch nicht mit Ruhm bekleckert: Ein 3D-Geschicklichkeitstest mit Mega-Drive-Optik, idiotische Ausweichübungen (“wenn rechts blinkt, bitte rechts drücken“) oder ein simpler Hindernisparcours erhöhen hier den Spielspaß nicht. Auch die erspielbaren Standbilder-Abspänne und mageren Hintergründe zeugen nicht gerade von der Hingabe an ein Spitzen-Beat‘em-Up. Kurzum: Wem die Fantasy-Prügler wie Darkstalkers aus gleichem Hause gefallen haben, dem wird auch Jo Jo zusagen, der Rest der 2D-Fangemeinde vergnügt sich weiter mit SF Alpha 3, Marvel SH vs Streetfighter oder KoF ‘98.

Ce jeu est inspiré du manga éponyme. Voilà qui devrait expliquer son succès au pays du Soleil-Levant. Dans l'Hexagone, ce ne sera qu'un jeu de baston en 2D de plus. Bien sûr, quelques fans d'animation japonaise seront intéressés, mais les autres.

This isn’t just another feather weight two-dimensional beat-’em-up, this is something that has crept out of the Twilight Zone, cunningly disguised itself as a straight forward fighter and will probably shock the living daylights out of anyone playing it. Yes, this is truly bizarre.

PSM (Mar, 2000)
Street Fighter purists might be turned off by the game's rough spots and relatively shallow combat, but it's certainly Capcom's most creative fighter to date - not to mention a lot of fun. If you're looking for a really cool change of pace from the numerous play-alike fighting games out there, or just want a taste of what the future might hold for the Street Fighter series, this is your game.

You know now if you're a JoJo gamer or not. If you read Anoop's nunya-Japanese import reviews on IGNdreamcast, it may be right for you. If you scan anime chat sites daily, this may be your game. If you loved MTV's The Maxx, JoJo is your kind of guy. And if you're thinking right now that it's either Street Fighter, Tekken, or bust, then I need say nothing more to you.

Gaming Age (Sep 13, 2004)
Overall, I really liked JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and would highly recommend it to die-hard Capcom fans. On the other hand, those of you who are big fans of the original and Street Fighter Alpha series may not like the new gameplay style. What made the game for me was the original gameplay style mixed with the old, otherwise I probably would have given it a significantly lower grade for being unoriginal.

Um die Sache auf den Punkt zu bringen – Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure macht einfach keinen Spaß. Obwohl bei mir normalerweise der Beat'em-Up-Funke leicht überspringt, versagt dieser Capcom-Fighter leider in allen Kategorien. Die Sache mit den Animationen könnte man ja noch verschmerzen, wenn wenigstens das Gameplay in Ordnung wäre, aber lustlos wirkende Charaktere (langweilige Posen), unbrauchbare Moves, uninspirierter Sound und dämliche Zwischensequenzen geben diesem 2D-Fighter endgültig den Rest.
