Review: The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves (DarkZero)

"An average RPG allows players to have three or four party members in a team at any one time, forcing them to choose their favourites from a roster of about ten to fifteen, with the exception of games like Valkyria Chronicles and Suikoden. But even in titles with a huge roster there is still a limit, so what about an RPG where there are an infinite amount of characters to choose from? Here's the catch - all you have to do is find them, which is the twist that Denpa Men 2 offers. In Denpa Men 2, every player starts with a unique character and must form a team of denpas, which are small human-like creatures that exist in a hidden world beyond our own in order to confront an annoying monkey that is terrorising your home of Digitown. After you run the obnoxious bully out of town it returns with some friends including the king monkey, who kidnaps your wife and two children setting up the cliche storyline from the get go. Using text for dialogue, only your main character has a voice and boy is it funny. The squeaky high-pitched and fast-forwarded voice over had me laughing from the very beginning when your main denpa talks to you directly, breaking the 4th wall and pulling you right into their world." (3DS, The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves) 9/10
