Jojo's Fashion Show: World Tour
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.

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...
