Product Description

Product Description

Square Enix has created many impressive looking DS games, but this wholly original title, from the same team behind Kingdom Hearts, is easily their best. Nothing about the game is conventional --from the contemporary setting in Tokyo’s trendiest shopping district to a split-screen combat system in which you battle graffiti-like monsters with the stylus on the bottom screen while using the pad for a controlling a different style of action on the top screen. With great depth and a vast array of customisation options, The World Ends with You tops it all off with stunning graphics and the best DS soundtrack.

Manufacturer's Description

THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU is an all-new, revolutionary adventure experience for Nintendo DS, brought to you by the makers of the critically acclaimed, multi-million-selling KINGDOM HEARTS series.

Trapped in the coolest district in Tokyo, only with the best fashions, friends and fighting skills around can you hope to defeat the Noise and the mysterious Shinigami Corporation, to restore hope to the city’s population and prevent being stricken from existence altogether!

Bright, colourful, funky and refreshing. The World Ends with You jumps out and hits you like a cold shower in a turgid swamp of grime. Square have cleaned the land of random battles, grinding and the general choreish nature of many RPGs and taken a whole new approach.

The story is set in modern times and the basic premise is that you find your character Neku awakening in an alternate Shibuya, with no memory and where only certain people can see him and he has 7 days to live. In a very small nutshell that's the basics of the story and all you need to know really, it's best to let this one fold out with as few preconceptions as possible. Be assured though that the story is both original and of high quality and, along with the visual style, quite unique. The visuals themselves are very impressive and although they don't look like they're pushing the DS to its limits they are certainly distinctive and great to look at. Think Manga-esque with the cel-shaded jagged edges and heavy black outlines of Jet Set Radio except in pure comic book 2D.

Combat takes place in real time and is actually initiated by the player rather than completely random. From initiating the fight you are taken into battle mode where you can control two characters, one on each screen. The bottom screen is controlled using the stylus to use certain equipped "pins" that allow Neku to attack the enemies on his screen in a variety of different ways. On the top screen you use the D-pad or face buttons (if left-handed) to attack the same characters but they are also represented as separate entities on the top screen. It's quite hard to describe and certainly takes some time to get used to controlling two screens at once.

Unbelievably lacking in hype, The World Ends With You is unequivocally the best RPG out now for the Nintendo DS. Why? Because any game that continually draws you deeper and deeper into its story and constantly draw you deeper and deeper into the game mechanics deserves all the praise it so rightfully earns itself.

You play as grumpy, irritating teenager Neku Sakuraba who has apparently just died and been planted into the world of UG Shibuya. You must survive seven days literally in a game of life or death by completing set missions that are sent to you each day. Failure to complete the mission by any of the players taking part means instant deletion.

The game has you pairing up with several characters, who appears on the top screen whilst Neku appears on the touchscreen, and has ou battling against evil monsters called 'Noise' who are essentially there to try and delete you. However, there are also the Reapers, who organise this little game (little game, who are we kidding? THEY'RE ALL GONNA DIE!) - their mission? To kill you basically.

Amazingly, despite a fairly dark undertone, the story is actually quite charming and occasionally light-hearted. There are some good characters and some fantastic character development - you may start hating Neku but you warm to him after a while as he opens up and stops being such a jackass - and some wonderful NPCs to contend with.

What really sells the game is the wonderful array of gameplay mechanics involved - there are far too many to list - all of them are perfectly implemented, never feeling forced, and always leave you wanting to know what's next. It's a deeply rewarding system and the combat, while initially confusing and difficult to master, almost becomes second nature.

Amazing graphics, complex and imaginative storyline, developed characters, innovative use of the DS dual-screen capabilities all combine in this interactive manga RPG. It's great to look at and excellent to play. Highly recommended for people who like RPGs with an interesting story.

Only downside is that the fighting elements are a bit repetitive, but once you've climbed the learning curve they don't have to take too long, and you earn new skills on the way.

Being new to the DS which I got a few months ago I was getting very bored with Brain Training every day and started searching for a RPG and saw the excellent reviews for The World Ends With You. I must say it is every bit as good as everyone says. Completely addictive and a great storyline. As previously mentioned the dual play takes a little getting used to but it is great practising and you will win stuff along the way which will help you out. One piece of advice - keep saving as much as you can - you don't want to lose your hard work!

That's right,this is a game with a moral.
You awaken to find yourself in Shibuya where you must fight in a game to get a second chance.This seems straight forward at first but twists and turns lead to friendship,betrayal and understanding that to expand your world you need to meet people,get to know them and although you may not get along you gin an insight into their own worlds.

At first I was sceptical,I saw the gameplay graphics on google and was like....looks pretty bad but it's not,it adds to the charm and fee of the game.The music may get on peoples nervs but again it fits Shibuya,a place where you can be different and no-one will judge you.

The storyline is good and is just what I'd expect from the people that made Kingdom Hearts,though the character design is almost identical to that game in some ways.

For those who've seen the trailer to this game well...it kinda explains alot of what happens in the game but it's the journey and as I said there are twists that will leave you going 'Say whaaaaaaat?!'
I've been playing this game for about 2-3 days and am nearly done with the first run through of it,I'll definitely be playing it again thats for sure.

The overall moral is: Life is short so enjoy every second to its fullest.Expand your world,the world you inhabit does not have to end with you.

Hopefully my review of this game was okay
