    Wow, even with all the bad reviews I still wanna give the game a chance. I was hoping you guys got enough likes on your Fb pages so I would have a better chance of getting it….

    • Go ahead and give the game a chance, when the price for it drops.

      • Bdock3601

        Yeah im not buying it at this crazy high price

    • comicgeek14

      It’s fun for a few weeks, unless you nit pick at everything. I still go back and play it every now and then. I still wish it was better in many aspects, but I paid 100$ for a Japanese PSN Card to get it and don’t regret it

      • Steed

        hmhmhmhm, mr. jace.

      • Marshall D. Teach

        Hoping I can get a used one off Amazon for about 50 or so

    • Bdock3601

      That meme application…

      • Marshall D. Teach

        What about it xD

  • Sh☯nenJump L☯ver

    I had fun playing j stars and didn’t expect so much bad reviews

  • The bad reviews are wrong. I can’t believe so many Japanese people disliked this game. These are people who cheered when they saw moving sprites in a Pokemon game.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Reviews are all opinion really so it’s not exactly “wrong”

      • SérgioM3

        Well it is “wrong” when they start stating false facts 🙂
        Like “and you can just clear story mode by pressing the same button over and over” or “there aren’t really any special combos” or ” is the next to no lag during online matches” and etc…

        • TheGameTagerZ

          If we’re speaking technical you could just mash the same combo over and over in the story to win. Fighting the CPU isn’t hard.

          And by special combos meaning it’s not hard to pull off they’re all very easy to do.

          You also forget that in Japan they don’t have the lag problems we do for Japan only games. Since we’re overseas we are bound to have server issues. Much like if a Japanese person imported an American game they would be running on American servers thus having the lag issue.

      • According to the internet, opinions can be wrong XD

      • Bdock3601

        True

  • Bobby Jennings/Godless

    It’s an okay game. But so much can be improved.

    I’m looking forward to a faster, more balanced sequel.

    • Have you ever played Gundam Extreme Vs?

      • Bobby Jennings/Godless

        Yeah. Just a little.

        • Do you think J-Stars would improve if they took a few ideas from that game? I mean like the speed and character differences

          • Bobby Jennings/Godless

            Maybe, but it’s a completely different game.

            J-Stars did well honestly, it just needs more combo options and faster gameplay. What it can take from Gundam Extreme VS is the speed of the game.

      • Bobby Jennings/Godless

        Yes.

    • myNAmEizUnImPOrtAnt

      Agreed. To me every character seem too slow.

  • Kaguya Ōtsutsuki

    Seriously this game is fine,just need more characters,especially Naruto chars 😛

    • Bobby Jennings/Godless

      Yeah. I agree with the “4 characters from each manga”. That would’ve been nice.

      • Kaguya Ōtsutsuki

        for Naruto it’s only 3 lol

        • For Reborn it’s only 1 lol

          • Bobby Jennings/Godless

            Gokudera and Yamamoto would be awesome characters. I also wouldn’t mind Byakuran.

          • Ikki Minami

            My hibari…but for a first try game it wasn’t that bad and I’m pretty sure there will be a sequel hence why there isn’t
            Ultimate dying will tsuna,Gon-san,new Ichigo,ts oga,ssj2,3,god gokuetc I’m pretty sure they are keeping some characters and transformation for the sequel

            • That makes sense, I’d prefer that actually to the reason I was thinking

        • Bobby Jennings/Godless

          I was talking about the review. I was saying we should have 4 from each manga.

          • Kaguya Ōtsutsuki

            Ohh now I get it 🙂

        • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

          Medaka Box only have one. they should at least have made Kumagawa Playable.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Ehh I think it had more than enough Naruto and One Piece representations.

      • Arale Norimaki

        Hey do you think that we will get dlc still?

    • Kaguya Ōtsutsuki

      I know guys that’s just my opinion,this game for me is good tho

  • myNAmEizUnImPOrtAnt

    It was fun for the first two weeks, but then I got bored with it. The main problem for me is the lack of other series representation. Just because OP, Naruto, DBZ etc are the most popular series doesn’t mean that other well known jump titles should be scraped because of that.

  • Despite the negative reviews I enjoyed it for the first month I had it, I’m glad I decided against the other version though

  • Bokyaku

    Split screen local multiplayer. Fix it. Then this game will be the greatest.

  • shaddrag

    It has Chitoge from Nisekoi, that makes me happy.

  • Reuben Malone

    I agree with some things said. They did forget quite a few older sires to include and they shouldent have even had support only charechters, and the sires they did use had a lack of representation. They had so much time to work on the game theyvcould have done a lot more.

    • xNightxFallx

      I like the support characters it gives a chance for characters from a anime that don’t really fight to make a appeareance such as Kuroko from Kuroko no basket.

      • Reuben Malone

        Yea, i suppose youre right, but supports like rukia or hisoka that should have been full playables are irritating because they are not playable.

  • Kiera

    I love after 3 Months and still play it Online with a Friend. Its the Best Fighting Game for me.

  • Steed

    Fun game. Just doesn’t have enough to sustain itself for too long. I’m bored after 2 months of it, cause its not a very deep game, but to be fair i dont think its supposed to be. It actually reminded me of Power Stone(if anybody else played that), a very fun party game. So i now i only play with friends as a party game, and i think that’s what it was supposed to be.

  • Minato Namikaze

    ashura Naruto are you here? pls comment

  • SérgioM3

    This just goes to prove the customers don’t know what they want 🙂 So how can the developers please everyone!

    Although I disagree with most of these reviews, and am 100% sure most of them are speaking with absent knowledge, I gotta say this is a nice article! Good job Kevin and Company 😛

    • Bdock3601

      I agree with you

  • Kurama (BeyondManga)

    I tried so hard to like it, but in the end I gave it up. (R.I.P. J-Stars Victory VS. 2014-2014)

    • Kaguya Ōtsutsuki

      lol

  • Mikeyoshi

    The game is really boring and gets old fast. Online is shit unless you’re playing with friends. Then it’s just okay. Splitscreen is horrible. Not enough characters. Story mode is super boring. There’s no content in this game. No costumes or anything. Wasn’t worth the $100 I paid for it. This isn’t even a fighting game. The mechanics are lame and broken. It honestly is just a character game.

    • RandomGuy

      You obviously want some attention.

      • Mikeyoshi

        I obviously just wanted to speak my opinion.

  • DI

    when it was first anounced I was so excited but then when they started to show gameplay videos I just got sad how they made such a bad game with such good material

  • RandomGuy

    I love it and still play it more than the storm games. The people complaining are the people who did’nt or could’nt get the game. lol Its just a brawler like anarchy reigns or power stone, so I dont know what you all expected.

  • D7_moltine

    I´m still having a blast with this game! Not a “trophy hunter” kind of guy, but I´m inclined to do it for this, too easy except the online part (not having nearby friends with the game is a bummer…)

    Planning on doing a CPU tournament, just like one I did with Capcom vs SNK 2 (Yeah, I like watching the CPU doing crazy stuff… lol)… In fact, this is the only game besides CVS and Smash Bros that I planned to do a thing like that…
    The reviews… well, are opinions, remember: asians are “pros”, always seeing the technical part, which I agree, but it´s a fan service game and in that regard, for me, it delivers….

  • Sora

    Well I Thought This Game Was Really Good And Really Fun I’m Glad I Bought This 🙂

  • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

    Bad reviews aside, I’ve seen a ton of people enjoying this game on the internet.

    I ordered mine 3 GOD DAMN MONTHS AGO! and it still haven’t arrived.

    I need to kill something…

    • It still hasn’t arrived? Where did you order it from?

      • D7_moltine

        I don´t know about him, but I´m Brazilian and the post service here is sh#t… things like that happens a lot in here, my game was sent to another city, but I contacted the store I bought and they sent me PSN codes instead…

        • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

          I know right? I’m Brazilian too.

          • D7_moltine

            Well, in my case I bought the game with an Brazilian store localized in Japan, they sent me the game, but the post office desappeared with it… I contacted them and the sent me some PSN codes… I almost bought on Playasia….

            • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

              in my case it was the opposite. I almost brought it from a Brazilian store (in Liberdade), I actually paid for it but the next day they sent me an email saying that their suppliers didn’t have the game so I went back there a got my money back, then I brought it from Play-Asia.

      • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

        Play-Asia

        • What shipping did you use? I picked Fedex and it arrived 5 days after release. Could that possibly have something to do with it?

          • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

            I used the economical one, didn’t have enough money to order the express so I used the one that THEY SAID would take up to 3 weeks.

            but that was almost three months ago!

            Now I just received a message that they sent an inquiry to the post office regarding my package and that this process takes 3-4 weeks for the post office to reply. they said they’d contact me as soon as they managed to get a response.

    • Kurama (BeyondManga)

      You should speak to someone about that.

      • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

        i’m constantly emailing them. they said they are investigating what happened to it and contacting the post office.

  • Never got the game, but after about a week of scans I realized the game was going to be shit. No offense to anyone who likes it.

  • ff

  • Hagaren

    I enjoyed it a lot. I’m still playing Victory Road every now and then. Sure, some more characters could have been in (Kinnikuman, Train Heartnet, Kazuki Muto, Yami Yugi, Light Yagami, etc) but, all in all, fun game that I don’t regret buying.

  • Bdock3601

    Im more inclined to trust in the 2-3 stars here tbh

  • bloodedge

    “without yugioh this game is just..” ok…how the heck would yugi even fight? i guess he would summon cards and have them attack in his place but thats just…not gunna happen…

  • Shogunreaper

    Why did one of them compare it to Gundam Vs.?

    If everyone is saying this is some kind of shallow kids game then it has nothing in common with Gundam vs. series

  • Pegasus Seiya

    I give it a 5 Star review. I loved it; my friends loved it. I was introduced to more anime when I began the story and saw Seiya and tried him out; thus becoming my main in the game. I have played for a good 90+ hours so far and wish more were online but I heard reviews of the game were bad, which made me feel sad that my favorite anime game that I had been hyping for since it was Project J Stars, had lost many of its followers.

    For the Sequel, (if there is one) I hope they take into account all these reviews, and make it far better for everyone even though it was already perfect for me.
