Game Description & Reviews:
Beat-'Em-Up released on 2002 based of the popular manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
As someone who disliked the 'on rails' feeling I got from the combat of jstars, and the lack of skill needed in Pirate Warriors 3, I'm happy to say I love this old gem.
The graphics are wonderful, cell shaded (so you know they hold up). The music isn't anything special but suits the Italian setting just fine. The story, (I haven't read the manga yet) I hear is accurate to it's source material. And lastly the combat... I love this combat system, the punches feel weighty (this is partly due to the sound design) and your character's movements are fluid, thanks to the stellar animations.
The combat system, while it lacks depth, it makes up for it with a clever, intuitive moveset, which rewards quick, improvisational thinking, this gives the player a sense of freedom and makes it all the more satisfying when you perfectly read an opponent's moves and are gifted with the euphoria that comes with demolishing them with a barrage of punches. I feel like I am a stand user from Jojo's. That's what I'm trying to stress, the fights you see in the manga translate so well to this game. And thanks to the large variety in the level design, it takes a long time before it gets boring.
Overall, I'd say what this game has done, it's done fantastically, and has quickly become one of my favorites. The negatives, however, come with what the game hasn't done - Coop/2 player. Golden Whirlwind has the potential to be a 5/5, though, missed the opportunity to take full advantage of it's beautiful combat system, and neglected to implement a simple 1v1 local coop mode. And so, I'd give this game a 4.3/5.
