Rated 9 out of 10 by MSUspartans09 Surprisingly good game
I really wasn't expecting much when I bought this game. I thought would get an easy game and get easy achievements just to improve my gamerscore. Well, I actually enjoy playing the game. With 7 different characters to play as, and a different storyline for each of them it is very fun. Also how there are characters who are light and characters who are dark is a great feature too. The sound is the biggest downfall of this game all you hear is a bunch of grunting during the battles. The music though is better during battles. It is good music for fighting. The graphics could be better and could be worse. You deal with them though. The length is great since there are 7 different characters it takes a good amount of time and effort to beat the game. The controls are the best feature of the game. The different variety of attacks you can use with each character is great. I recommend this game to most people who like sword slashing rpg games.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Frankith Less enjoyable then I thought it would be
This game really just seems like a mix of Diablo and the worst hack and slash game ever. You fight wave after wave of enemies and have to run everywhere which takes forever. The only good feature is the controls and the versatility of the characters. every character has different attacks. They all have completely different fighting styles and have different strengths and weakness'. The game however becomes mainly a button masher primarily just hitting X and Y in different patterns. Some characters have 1 move that stands above the rest that you'll find yourself using over and over just to wipe everyone out and finally be done with the game. The game can not keep up with itself graphically. Yes large battles are cool, you can be fighting somewhere close to a hundred enemies at once. Problem is, the game can't keep up with you ripping through the crowds of enemies while your allies are attacking so it lags insanely. The graphics aren't all that good in the first place so with intense lag it's worse. Needless to say, this game was recommended to me by a family member, and I regret having spent even 17 dollars for it and traded it back in.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Lodoss Diablo in a different Form.....
Ninety-Nine Nights is a similar look towards Diablo. The game is hack and slash, and that's really about it.The game's storyline is somewhat lame. There really is no story at all. Just little cutscenes showing people talking, and even then, the voice acting is very poor. The sounds are all the same, and the thing you hear most of all throughout the entire game, is UGH UGH UGH, the sound of 30+ enemies getting hit by you.Next there is the gameplay. The graphics are somewhat nice, but that doesn't relate to the fact that every character you are able to play as, has an extremely long weapon, that can hit enemies from large distances, allowing you never to get hit. I had played 20 minutes, and in that 20 minutes, I finished 7 missions without getting injured once, and got a simple A rank.The game's length is a joke. No sooner do you start playing then you can easily finish the game in about 4 hours, earning every achievement.I would not recommend this game to anyone, except those who want a small boost in self-esteem, thinking they are doing something, when really they are just mashing buttons and killing a bunch of under-powered enemies.

When i bought this game i thought it was giong to be a fair game but it turned out to be just one of those games were you can already tell it aint going to get any better than what it already was plus you dont really get any new powers just more combo attacks wich to me was cool because the way they slice that was the best. the graphics were nice i dont like the music it has no hype to it is rather Iritatating with the AW AW AWe and the story i liked and how every ones story side will tie with others not to much stradegy being used and the story length was fair and somtimes i get tired of it and then i just turn it off and makes me want to do somthing else but the interfernce was fun this game whould most be played by people who loved that one game called dynasty warriors this is my review.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Ps2hustler Can be fun, but ONLY for DW fans.
Ninety-Nine Nights (or N3) is a hack and slash game that bears a lot of resemblence to games like Dynasty Warriors, (and all of those other DW-style games Koei put out). You slice your way through hordes of goblins in several missions, often killing over 1K goblins per level. What sets this game apart from the rest of the sub-genre is how many AI-controlled people can be onscreen at once. You often can have over 250 AI-controlled characters and have no framerate issues at all. I found this game to be fun for quite a while, but I do have some things I found to be issues. My biggest gripe with N3 is that I didn't find that your team's drones seem to do much attacking. Sure they help, but I found it to be minimalist. Another concern is the annoying voice acting. I understand some of the high-pitch voices because one character claims to be 12, but Inphyy's voice is grating-and not normal for her age. Plus, I am pretty sure that characters max out at LV. 10. Plus, it will take a LONG time just to obtain your first achievement. Regardless of the game's flaws, I really enjoyed this game for what it was. They did make a sequel, however I am avoiding it because I heard it's one of the worst games of 2010. If you like Dynasty Warriors, I strongly suggest buying this game.
Rated 4 out of 10 by wuttaboutit This game lacks appeal.
i feel like this game lacked a lasting appeal for me to reccomend it. I usualy love hack and slash games but this one wasn't one of them. In this game you'll find that as you level up you get more combo moves.I did not like that,i feel like it is a pain going through the same levels as different charaters using rusty and old moves. i would however reccomend this game to someone who likes to take there time with a game but i feel dissapionted.
Rated 4 out of 10 by DemonOfMist Hack and smash Game.
It started good, but the voices and acting was poorly done. The game became very repetitive and my hand started to hurt after hitting the same button over and over. The story was interesting and the idea of playing multiple characters was fun. I felt like the levels needed to be designed better, it kinds looked like they just slapped it on without thinking. I would recommend this game if you have nothing better to do.
Rated 8 out of 10 by strayrogue 1 warrior 1000 times the fun
i really enjoyed the game, if the reviews arent good at all who cares the game is beautiffly designed. the execution of the characters movements is strikingly impressive. this game might be annoyingly difficult but i love this game and i bought the second one and it was just as good and the story and graphics just as better. im sticking with this game and not Black Ops or Modern Warefare too violent.

The overall game is alright, if you put the game on mute. The voice acting sounds like the designers hired a cast of pre-teens to voice the characters. Game play is a typical hack and slash, run around and attack hords of enemies. Do not buy this game unless the one you buy can be dubbed in Japanese.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shikamaru125 With the amazing gameplay it is simply amazing.
This a amazing work of art still stands as my favorite game of all time for amazing gameplay and storyline. As you progess through the game you unlock the ability to control the basic elements(fire,earth,air, and my favorite water) as different characters. I love it.
