Game Guys review - Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory

When NIS America released the first of what would become three Hyperdimension Neptunia video games a couple of years ago, it was a fresh and light-hearted take on video game fanboyism with female idols taking the roles of the major video game consoles of Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. The player took the role of Neptunia, who represents the former SEGA game consoles. The second game, Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2, repeated the formula with mixed results when it swapped personifications of home consoles for handhelds.

Now, with Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, developers Compile Heart and Idea Factory are at it again - this time with Neptunia going back in time to a representation of the video game industry in 1989. With it comes a handful of changes to the series. Some are for the better, but most seem like change for the sake of change. (Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, PS3) 68/100
