Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Review: Back into the Game | Technology Tell

From the review, "Hyperdimension Neptunia RE;Birth 1 serves as a parody of the gaming industry, often taking jabs not only at the RPG genre, but at gaming tropes in general. The game appears on the surface to be a sexist, fan service riddled, cliche, vapid romp through a ridiculous, conceptual world. The reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, there is a bunch of fan service, especially in the character design, but it is done in such an over-the-top, ironic fashion that you could never feel embarrassed or offended by it. In fact, the characters even go out of their way to point out how hilariously “fan-service-y” it is. This game doesn’t just break the fourth wall, it flat out refuses to accept that such a thing even exists." (Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, PS Vita) A/A+
