Great! Still too expensive
Amazing game for any RPG fan. I do admit the "female suggestiveness" could drive some away and I agree it does. The writing and voice acting is a mixture of good and bad. there are some moments where its just like uggghhhh. If you get past that, this game plays VERY smoothly and is a straight forward RPG. There is no real free-roam but thats perfectly fine in this game. The fact that MK2 is about $10 cheaper is kinda silly since this game is older ( looking at you AC1 ) This game should be $20 flat now. Most Gamestop's only carry about 1 copy per store when I went to find it. Either way, GET THIS GAME.
It's good, but not that great
The concept behind the game is unique and there are some rather humorous parts. I liked how they would add non-necessary scenes where they mention past/current popular titles. Because when you figure it out your like "yeah it's that one" or how there's one where it's obviously Princess Peach (she's princess pear in the game) and she talks about how she got tired of waiting for her ex-boyfriend the plumber so she ran off with another person - I though that was hilarious...anyways I digressed.
The graphics were in anime style, but I was very disappointed in the fact that there wasn't really any facial changes except for the >.< or their normal breathing face. I found it really irritating when there's so much dialog in the game. Often leading me to just read the and rapidly pressing x.
You don't travel much, only between the four land masses which I will just label as Planeptune, Lastation, Leanbox, and Lowee. Within each, there are dungeons. The dungeons all come with maps so you only need to explore to find treasures or the glyphs to fight a boss like monster. But I got tired of just traveling through dungeons, since that's the only place you really meet monsters or get any credits. You also need to go through the dungeons each time you want to travel to the next land.
When I think of RPG I want to be able to explore, I want to be able to walk around areas that aren't just in dungeons - seriously those dungeons begin to look all the same, because some are the same.
They try to keep people entertain by giving them more challenging missions as well as ranks for each mission you complete. You can also do a new game plus after defeating the game. I kind of like what they did for us after the credits - you'll just have to beat it to find out.
The music, there's one particular BGM that I like, but some of the theme songs for the goddesses were so bizarre.
The battle system - so the tutorial doesn't really go through much with you. For a while I didn't understand how she -> Neptune could transform. You'll need to have the fourth move state that there's an extra action to it, usually --, transform, combo link, or switch is what will say. You can't use the items to heal directly, that is something you will need to adjust in the characters' item skill. I swear, Neptune does not like healing herself except with nep bull, it irritates me so bad. The command list is where you select which moves will for x, triangle, square and circle. The way you input it will also determine which moves will appear. You should constantly adjust them as you learn new moves. - this part for some reason reminds me of Xenosaga
One of the best RPG's i have played in awhile.
very funny dialogue great game-play and the image edit thing is a cool idea ** only problem is dungeons seem repetitive but that is when i am grinding and doing the same one multiple times other than that fun as heck and well worth 30 bucks.
Gaming and internet memes in a nutshell
This is one of the most hilarious games on the ps3 and also one of the best in my opinion just wished more people knew about this instead of playing FPS' all day
Best Game ever
tis game was the best game i ever played it wasnt that good when it started but i gave it a chance and suddenly i was in love with the game i liked it so much that it made me stop playing call of duty
A rather humorous game.
A great game for hardcore RPG players. This game is a feast of clever references to other video games, so if you think you know a thing or two about video games, then I challenge you to count how many references this game makes to other video games out there. Another good thing about this game was that it's voice acting is superb, both in english and japanese. The last thing I'd commend this game for is it's battle system. There is a huge combo system that could take hours of customization to perfect, and if you can reach your perfect combo system, then it'll be very hard for you to put this game down. The only thing that I would have to criticize this game on would be it's graphics. Sure, it's going for a more anime like approach, but I know they could've done better. Even the PSP could handle the graphics of this game.
My My My
As a fan of Nippon Ichi and Gust for quite sometime I found it interesting that Sega and Idea Factory was part of this. For anyone who has known to play a game from the Nippon Ichi/Gust tandem its a game that has puns galore and small jabs that keeps a person entertained for hours.
When I first played this game I was astonished to see no male protagonist what so ever there are only male npcs (you cant see them but they are voiced) and I felt it was refreshing that the main hero's were in fact female. Now I have heard some people say that this game is "sexist" I will say this if anyone has played a game from Japan or has Japan influence there are going to be the typical fan service (panty shots, low cut shirts,etc.)
Not to get on a soupbox and rant lets get to the game. It is again a nice change to see female heros' and the gameplay is very interesting. A mix of visual novel/dungeon crawling game that can be fun for any of the sexes. The soundtrack although limited and it does get repetitive, but again looking at who made this game it is no surprise, but each track captures the moment perfectly. Graphics are nice especially on the PS3 cause Sega makes sure that all their games video output is 1080p. So I can't complain HD lol. Controls are a little funky at first due to the battle system having the mix of turn base and button attacks which is interesting. The voice actors in the game are spot on with the characters. Most of these women I have heard in several anime's and games. The only grip I have is the item system and item skills. If you are level grinding and run into one of your ladies dying you might as well leave the dungeon cause they won't have enough time to use the item skill cause they die to quickly (they come back with 1 hp) Other than that good price and again this game will have you rolling on the floor. I highly recommend this game for any hardcore Gust/NIS/IF or anyone who is new. Worth the 25 dollars.
This game is fun to play. Great storyline. This game docent get the recognition it deserves. I recommend this game who like a good storyline.
Perfection Everywhere, Anime Forever
First off, I like to point out what I think about this game. I believe it's amazing, the art, the storyline, and the extras. Ok now onto what the game has in store for us. It has two endings, one normal and true, you can customize your moves as well. By doing so, you can make your own combo, not like other games where you can only stick with one combo, nice right? Not only that, you can customize your favorite mascot ( Neptune, IF, etc ) by gving them accessories. WAIT, there's even MORE to this, just keep reading my fellow anime lovers, you have beautiful 2D pictures as the characters talk. When your in a dungeon, you become, 3D-ish. Almost to the last thing, you guys can customize a CPU ( Neptune and some other characters can turn into CPU making them stronger ), you can decorate their stronger form. That's about it, overall great stroyline, characters, music, and art. Other than that, enjoy some side quests to kill some time, or level up. If you liked this game, check out some of my recommendations, USERNAME FOR PSN " Escalaveir ".
This game is wonderful.
This game is a wonderful game for any video gamer or anime lover. They make constant jokes about the game systems and some jokes about anime as well and it kept me laughing through the entire game.
Gameplay is simple yet fun but the real winning point is the conversations.
