Jump Ultimate Stars is apparently a "Smash Brothers" like game, only with more obscure anime characters rather than famous videogame icons. While this may seem appealing to some people, it didn't strike a chord with me as I do not particularly like anime. I played this game anyway as it is highly regarded and after a few hours with it, it is hard for me to recommend this to anyone. The Japanese is somewhat excessive, meaning that you might have a hard time learning the game if you do not speak it. Otherwise, there seemed to be a lot of buttonmashing and trial and error as I did not know what I was doing half the time. Blame this poor review on my incompentence if you want, but I cannot recommend anyone spending the extra few dollars to import this one if you are not a big fan of this kind of thing.
