Begun the console wars have.
on 11 March 2011
Hyperdimension Neptunia, the next Jrpg up from NIS and Compile Heart, in all im just glad someone is kind enough to be bringing these games over here to Europe in the first place.
If you have ever played Trinity Universe, i think your pretty clued up as to what to expect with Neptunia. Relying mostly on its characters, skits and humour, these are not the RPG's to recommend to anyone bothered by anime cliches or by limited gameplay/plot development.
A good deal of your time in this game will be spent watching skits between the character portraits as they attempt to amuse you with thier banter, anyone familiar with Disgaea's humour will be right at home here. The one, unique thing this game does have going for it though is the fact that is one big **** take at the current console wars and full of gaming related jokes in general, if your a big, and long term collector/gamer you will only appriciate this more.
The gameplay doesnt differ all too differently from Trinity Universe, the battle system is simple to start with, but eventually becomes quite involving by use of long button combos and exagerated attacks as your girls obliterate whoever they mean to.
Its an all female cast, heavily anime inspired and does a perfect job at mocking almost everything game/anime related, if your up for having a good laugh, arent a sourpuss and put off by its style and want some addictive, dungeon grinding gameplay, this is the game for you.
