I really wasn't a fan of these games. Luckily I got the sequel free with Plus. The dialogue is really far fetched and honestly, the conversations last way too long. The puzzles were decent but were really inconsistent as far as difficulty goes.

i think you just don't like to read.

ElementX1627d ago

Wrong, I love reading. I've read over 55 novels this year so far

I thought Zero Escape was a great game. However, there wasn't enough gameplay, dialogue was way too long and way too over-explained. The gameplay needs to consist of something more than just puzzles. Maybe add some QTE here and there, just something to break up the routine so it doesn't get so stale. And seriously, the backtracking needs to be toned down a bit.

Wft am i reading ....

Listen guys , i mean no harm but if you don't like the genre don't ask for it to becomes something it isn't...
I don't mean to argue that the game should be imune to critics but this kind of stuff is embarassing to you guys.

QTE in a visual novel game ... seriously ...

I enjoyed the game, but in a 30h+ game the gameplay needs to consist of more than just puzzles. Doesn't necessarily have to be QTE's, I was just throwing one idea out there.

999 was amazing

Zero escape was convoluted for convolution's sake.

Gamesgbkiller1627d ago

Zero Escape is just amazing game.

The story has so many twists to it.

Why there are no games like this from a story wise ?

RexFury1627d ago

I'd say the first three Phoenix Wright games are at times on par with the twists of Zero Escape. Especially the final cases.

Hotel Dusk as well, but overall I think Phoenix Wright is by far the most enjoyable of the bunch. Better writing, humor, artwork and less cheesyness.

Although Hotel Dusk probably has the best story and script of them all. I just prefer Phoenix Wright for its great mix of lightheartedness and memorable stories. It's mostly character-driven though.

I got Zero Escape from PS+. It's so amazing that it was the first game I ever got a platinum trophy. In fact, I didn't touch another game until I finished it. The plot just blew my mind. Became a fan of the series, bought 999 online and I'm waiting for it to arrive.

you were supposedly play 999 first

Nerdmaster1627d ago

Of course. But I didn't know about the series and even if I did, as gameplay revolves around puzzles, I would never have bought any of them. I just played Zero Escape because it was "free" from PS+. If it wasn't for that, I would've never played a single game in the series.

well it best that you stay on sites like Silionera and Dualshocker where Japanese Games are top priority. Not IGN, GameSpot and such.
