Ninety-Nine Nights 2
When I played the demo, I liked it so I decided to rent it. When I got the game I was surprise to how hard the game was on normal. It got me a little mad. I had to beat the game on easy. Some parts are buggy but the game is still great. If you like fighting countless enemies at once you will like this game. This is my first hack n slash game & I loved it. The leveling up system is great & so are the characters. The mutiplayer is good for unlocking new items & leveling up. Don't expect to play the story mode online because you can't. If you're going to try to beat the game on hard I recommend doing survival online first so you can level up. The only issue I have with this game is the checkpoints. When you die you would be brought back to the last saving spot. You can't save on your own. When it does saves & if you decide to quit, make sure when you start it again to go to continue not load game. If you load the game you would start from the beginning of the level. That happened to me once, & it's not fun.
No regret hack and slash.
I played the first one game and played out one character in this game and other than a few similarities in story such as orb of light and orb of darkness, this game stands on its own. Other than wave after wave of baddies filling the screen without some end, you have more control with this game than the first because there are now summoning towers and depending on whether you take care of or not you can dish out as much pain as you want. Sure the game can "repetitious" but honestly what game doesn't? This game is a great hack and slash you can play online and there are more cut scenes and more accessories and items, and more story, great graphics, more big baddies for end of the stage bosses. My only complaint is my favorite character from the first one Tyurru, is not in this one and I really wanted to see how well her tidal wave orb attack special would look the second time around. No more SPLASHEE, SPLASHEE! but other than that great game.
Ninety Nine Nights 2
Honestly this game in my opinion anyway is the better of the two so far. The graphics are better, the story intertwines all of the characters together unlike the original. The levels last and at the end of each, a large boss fight usually occurs. The soundtrack is pretty great and the control scheme is really easy to accustom yourself to. If you plan on unlocking every achievement as well be careful when the difficulty increases, the bosses are way tougher along with the obvious little monsters that roam the corridors and fields of Orphea. The customization is pretty easy to navigate and unlike the first game you can level your character, level your weapons, and also level spells and passive abilities with the orbs collected throughout gameplay so you may want to kill everything you see to increase a character to the top. So if your into hack n slash games with big boss fights I would recommend this game.
Ninety-Nine Nights 2 is a vast improvement over the first. There are 5 characters each with their full campaign skills, weapons and upgrades. The game-play is basically the same, you vs thousands of enemies but this time you have more skill and weapon choices to make it more enjoyable to hack away at the enemy. The story line is much more pronounced than the first, there is actually a method to the madness not just go here go there and kill. There is a multi-player side to the game, there are multiple stages each one with 5 varying levels of difficulty that you and your friend can go wild on. The only downside about the game is that there are very few checkpoints, so if you die you have to start back at the beginning most of the time. N3 is definitely a must play game if you like hack-em up games.
WAY better than the first!
This is the awesome hack and slash plus r.p.g. level up's. Lots of differnt avatars to pick from, the graphics are out of this world for this type of game. This time they fixed the challenge in the game not too hard and not something you can blow thru. The attack's are great, you can wipe hundreds of enemies off the screen in 3 second's. The story is alright not your epic R.P.G but will do for the hack'em up game. The length is just right, if you play it on hard it's alot longer. If you love the first game you will LOVE this one. If you hate the first one, it wont matter cause they fixed everything wrong with the first one. So go buy this and crank up the music which is awesome too, if you have a good sound system then your in for a treat. The voice acting is much better than the first one so dont worry about that. You go to your local gamestop and buy a copy now!
Good despite official reviews
I will tell you that this game is not for everyone, however if you like to mindlessly kill vast armies to get a little frustration out, its great. Even on easy the boss fights are difficult, so the game is at least a bit challenging. I like games like this and I haven't seen any problems with the graphics during game play on my system. The only thing that could be better is when you try to jump or block after you have started to attack it won't let you until you have finished your attack sequence. Other than that I think the game is pretty good.
I really liked the first game especially the little magician girl who can summon up huge water waves and wash out hundreds of baddies on a stage. Ninety nine nights is like a better version of dynasty warriors is probably the best way to describe this game. I know i read lots of reviews of how the first game was not too good, but i really liked it and was super happy to hear it was getting a sequel. Hopefully this time around there will be more characters and move sets and storyline and well everything you would expect from a sequel, but even if they don't change anything and just put a 2 on the first one i will probably end up buying it anyway. SPLASHEE SPLASHEE! amazing, even if it is just one move from an entire game.
Not too Shabby
This game has been getting some really bad reviews that i really dont believe in i think this was an overall decent game The Challenge: the easy and normal difficulty let you play the game with little trouble and was very fun while still getting frustrating towards the end (the final mission for one character angered me even on normal) while the hard difficulty add alot of challenge to the game The Graphics: the graphics were pretty average nothing to write home about but the cinematics looked beautiful there were a few framerate issues but it diddnt interfere with the game play and what game dosent have it nowadays The Length: the game took about 20 hours to beat all the storylines which is great the levels were fairly long which could be annoying at times but o well The Storyline: it was a bit cookie cutter fantasy story but it was still very engaging and the characters were very enjoyable The Controls: they were very easy to understand you can just pick it up and be a master and if thats not enough you can completely customize the controls to whatever you want The Interface: the menus were well menus but the leveling system gave the game alot more depth The Sound: while i liked the music from the first one better the music was still pretty good the voices were a bit shallow and a few spots of bad acting but the worst of it waas that the voices diddnt match the mouths it was just annoying but thats just nit picking Multiplayer: theres alot of different co op modes which are all fun to play but they get hard really suddenly and they dont take alot of time to finish but i still play them all the time with my buddies Overall: its not a bad game not groundbreaking or anything but its not bad it should last you till your next game easy and when that game gets boring youll probably come back to do something random in the game Im not exactly a hack & slash fan but i thuroughly enjoyed this game
This series is what Dynasty Warriors (DW) should be. Graphically, this game puts DW to shame but that's not saying much. Level design is a little simple but with some nice textures and effects. Sound is pretty average. Use xp to upgrade your characters, weapons, and abilities. There are five different character campaigns to play through on or offline. I really only have two gripes about this game. First, the checkpoint system at times is very unforgiving. Some will have you replaying up to 15min of level. Second, the characters get stuck in their animations constantly. Depending on how many buttons you mashed you will have to wait for all of the actions to finish in order to have control back, AARG! However, slaying 1000s of enemies is FUN!
Allright Game At start untill you start getting to the End then it just starts getting insane Like for say when in the sprit Realm to get a Item you must fight over 12 Ogres at once if not more just for 1 item and they just keep pining you and die some other parts are like that as well and when you get set on fire it stay on you for a long time takeing about 1/6 to 1/4 of your HP over all they could of done alot better with this game and then they tell you to play it on hard lol
