Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory review | Thunderbolt

James Dewitt, Thunderbolt writes:
Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is one of those games that has to fight an uphill battle with every preconceived notion its boxart of a scantily clad anime girl and pedigree as an obscure JRPG series brings to mind. It’s actually the third installment in the Hyperdimension series, which attempts to differentiate itself from the pack by trying to be a parody of the current climate of the gaming industry despite clinging to many of the well-worn conventions. (Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, PS3) 3/10

Do game critics not understand there's a difference between the JRPG and the Otaku RPG, and they are made for different groups of people?

And that Hyperdimension Neptunia is largely successful at appealing to the Otaku JRPG market?

Sigh.

Critics don't understand anything these days. Look at Time and Eternity reviews. Reviewers don't understand that the game is just an experiment with high definition sprites. Modern reviewers trying to apply the same standards for all games. And that's the biggest mistake.

I still enjoy myself playing Time and Eternity and Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory despite it's issues and poor critical reception. Enough said.
