Jojo's Fashion Show: World Tour
Again, like any fashion game - there are good things and bad things.
I have always had mixed feelings about fashion games.
I know I've stated this before in my review of the first jojo game - ( btw why is Jojo 2 not up here , big fish? ) - but I feel it is worth repeating.
Anyway , the style has changed here. I have mixed feelings about the graphics of all 3 jojo fashion games. The fashions themselves can be beautiful and I like some character designs or certain things about some character designs.
The story this time around....*yawn* just because something is realistic to the fashion world doesn't make it a good story
I am really disappointed that the story this time was like watching a silly soap opera.
Another thing I hate about all 3 jojo fashion games is being hurried to put together an outfit and I hate it when the game won't agree with me on what looks good. ( Ha! )
Like any fashion game....this can be fun at times and just plain frustrating , silly , and annoying other times.
There are certain things I liked from 1 and 2 that are missing in World Tour and there are things in World Tour that should've already been in the series from the start.
I wish all three games had been more than just fashion but for what it is , it is not a terrible game. ( It is just not a great game either *sigh* )

Cute game but not for adults. Kids and teens will probably love it. I found the outfits lacked a lot of imagination. You are stuck with only a few choices.

Not what I thought
Based on other reviews I thought it would be fun! But it's not.
You dress your models and get them out to the runway quickly. There is no time for matching and it really doesn't matter, The scores are based on other factors. I guess fashion is subjective. With that said, I give it a 2.5 I dont hate it but its not for me. On the positive it does let you choose an article of clothing and you can choose colors,embellishments and patterns and then use those clothes on your runway models.

A Fashion Don't
I was rather disappointed with Jojo's Fashion Show: World Tour. The game started out pretty fun, doing a show in Tokyo. It takes over from the first game a few years later and Jojo's daughter is now running her own fashion line out of Rio. So we start off doing pop fashions in Japan, the Goth Loli, Loli, Tokyo Street, and Kimono Crazy looks, which are really fun, but once we got out of Tokyo, things started to slide a bit. The things we were given to work with to help Jojo make new looks were recycled from previous levels, and often did not even match what we were supposed to put together.
Creating outfits for the ladies was much easier than for the guys, and once we got the models in the dressing rooms, we had to be speedy to the "model chain" and "Style chain" bonuses. The bigger the bonus and higher the score for matching what was popular in whichever city we were in, the more powerups and stars we get. Getting a 5-star show is not really all that had, but getting the looks together in such a limited amount of time is frustrating, let alone having to hunt down the proper shoes to match an outfit, and let's not even go there with accessories. They give a nice boost to the score, but put the wrong thing with the wrong outfit, and watch that score go so low.
I got thru Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, Djarkarta, and all the way to the Rio show when I realised this game just can't be played by the rules because the devs were cutting costs by not giving us what we needed to play. Rio want's animal prints, and there are none to be found on any of the patterns they give us for Rio, and so on. This game needs an update, and the devs should trying reading their Vogue magazines again before their redesign. Maybe then this game might be worth another look.

From Fab to FLOP
This game FLOPS. Compared to the original, it's terrible. Here are my thoughts:
All the original gameplay from Jojo's Fashion Show
Design your own outfits- this added a new, rather fun twist to the game.
Rotating between Male and Female models- this was new to the game, but I kind of disliked it. I found it much easier to dress female models.
Compared to the original, gameplay was a piece of cake. I always seemed to get 5 star outfits and shows. They could have at least made the game harder.
Terrible storyine. Jojo's daughter "leaves the nest" and starts her own fashion shows.
Bad graphics- They've tried though, adding life-like models instead of fake, animated models.
Nowhere near as fun as the original. I wasn't hooked, I didn't want to come back to this game.
Overall, for such a great first installment, the sequel is a total let-down. Glad I tried it before I bought.

Clash of the styles
There are four kinds of graphics in thise game, cartoonish characters (us), semi realistic models that seemed to be in cryo, clothes in realistic graphics, and flashing camera lights that didn't fit any of these categories.
And that wasn't the only styles clashing;
I thought the other two Jojo's were bad concerning the styles, but this topped it, easily;
Combining 3 colors on a Gothic Loli outfit got you a high score but putting Japanese platforms on the Loli model made you not get any points for the shoes!
For the desiging of male Gothic Loli outfits there was no black available as a main colour. Say what?!
The models hair and make-up didn't match the styles either, at least not in Tokyo.
Really, it was clash of the styles all over. If you like that, this might be your game cause the designing and combining was fun, but I couldn't take it.

Worst of Jojo's
One and two are way much better than this one, the models, the clothes etc. Maybe the possibility to design is the only thing I liked. Don't like it at all...
