This game has really good fanservice consisting of nice character interactions and references. However, the gameplay really disappoints. Controlling the player character feels incredibly stiff, and while the game boasts about its massive 50+ character roster, rarely are they fun, diverse or balanced. The story mode is incredibly disappointing; the story is just "dead character is back from the grave and attacks the main party because Ronnie James Dio told him to". That's all there is to it. It's the same scenario, over, and over, and over. I admittedly didn't beat the story mode, but that's because I was too bored to. This story mode also somehow thinks having to unlock your special moves is a good design choice; it isn't, it just makes every encounter even more stale and samey than it already is.
