Xbox360Next gives Xbox Evolved a quick look at Ninety-Nine Nights, in this Japanese import review, find out what our fellow Japanese Xbox 360 gamers think of this frantic action game from Phantagram.
Going to the Arcade when i was young is when i really fell in-love with playing vid's, this game brings that back to me in my home; thanks MS i have already paind for this game.
Quote]At the end of the game, the final character that is unlocked, has a terrible power, and a strength that can only be matched by the last enemy, and that is why it is worth playing to the last minute. It is worth the time, and I hope they put out a sequel to such a fantastic title, and hopefully Americans will pick up on the title as well.
Guess I'll have to wait to hear what an american has to say about it.
it comes out on the 15th so we dont have that long to wait...i might be to busy playin dead rising though
I've played the Asian version, and in summary it is a no brainer hack and slash game without more. Graphics are good no doubt, but depth in the game is not there at all. There's absolutely no point in having control of armies in the game 'cos you do 98% of the killing. While I do admit that there was something strangely fun about mindlessly hacking and slashing away at the hordes surrounding you, and the story aspect of it was in a way intriguing, nonetheless it is a shallow and repetitive game.
with dw5empires that was rather ridiculous but fun this "mindless" hack and slash should over pass dw5 empires with ease. ive played the asian full game and the american demo and its a promising game for hack and slash fans of games like dw, dmc, choas legion, etc. if your looking for a game that will just have you mashing the same buttons over and over again but provide countless hours of fun for the price tag of 49.99 (the u.s) it is well worth the 50 bucks. when FPS and other things get boring get your thumb ready for some exercise itll want to fall off for. very good game i would suggest anyone to get it for just having fun purposes.
http://xbox360.ign.com/arti... There's a few things that might concern potential buyers.
"I've found the support armies and CPU-controlled heroes to be more of a nuisance than a help. The armies at times seem incapable of even taking out a single enemy. You're usually not required to take out all enemies, but some glaring AI problems make the CPU-controlled heroes stay behind, trying, but usually failing, to kill whatever enemies remain. Your army characters fill up the screen, making it hard to see where any remaining enemies may be. If you do want to kill everyone, it can often be hard to determine where you should be slashing."
"Gameplay, while likely to appeal to hack and slash fans, can get tedious at times, especially with the levels taking over 30 minutes. Make sure you don't die, or you'll have to start over from the beginning of the stage!"
the last part brings back horrid memories of Shinobi. Thankfully there's playable demos on XBL, so maybe some people can try it out. One of my friends loves mindless slasher/hacking games for some odd reason (he has EVERY dynasty warrior game), so there's gotta be people that are gonna love it no matter what.
This game is what it is. A beautifuly gorgeous hack and slash. I love it. I played the demo all last night. Its Great. Visually its stunning. And the gameplay is fast and furious. Sure your armies are little help...but who cares when the purpose is to get KILLS...500 kills...1000 kills....Yes...Thats what this game is about. Not your computer controlled charactors but YOU. lol... Its a definate must have for hack and slash fans. The best I have played thus far of this type of game. And thats just the demo.
