Hahaha, what a terrible game.
Judging by the reviewers, that are giving horrible scores to this game, this seems pretty bad.
Honestly, after playing the game until completion... I've played actually BAD, HORRIBLE, games. Games UNPLAYABLE, which a score of "2" would be for. This is, honestly, not one of them. It's not the best game ever, and it's full of flaws, but I can say with certainty I actually enjoyed playing through it. It's not BAD, but it's not GOOD, either.
Actually, you bring up a good point Neckbear. For me, a 2/10 game is something that is ugly, buggy and downright unplayable. I haven't played Hyperdimension Neptunia. But I find it hard to believe it's a 2/10. It might be an average or even boring game, but 2/10 suggests it's impossible for anyone to play, let alone enjoy.
Its completely playable game. Yes its a niche title with a very niche audience. It does have a odd battle system, but its not broken at all. I would say this is a 5 or 6 out of 10 game...not a 2.
Once you level up and get some good moves to make devastating combos from you get addictet to this game. I'm lv 17 and in the last few lv ups I've started getting some great moves to kill my enemies with. Without the combos this game is kinda bland with only a few different looking caves (so far) but a 2/10 game? Nope. Not in a million years. I'm glad I bought this game imported as the special edition. @suicide above Have you actually played this game or do you base your opinion on reviews? The reviewers also call Forza a simulation you know and we all know how that goes.
Lol wow, just wow. 2 things, forza, what does it have to do with this? Is this another classic case of attack popular 360 game to get massive agrees and maybe a well said? 2nd thing, lol at having to reach level xx excuse for the game to get fun Level 40 maybe?
Yeah just look at those massive agrees. I'm really enjoying the houndreds of bubbles that are flying towards me. You will never hear the end of it -_- It's true. Reviewers say Forza is a simulation and it's courses are widened to make it easier to overtake. How about that? Someone was clearly basing his opinion on reviews and I pointed out that in today's world there is nothing a reviewer won't say to get hits. No matter how false or inconsistent it is. Don't worry Neptunia brings new moves all the time while you level up. At lv 17 I first started looking into it and found out how great it was. I brought Forza to the table because of the TRUTH of things. Things ARE wrong with it being called a sim and it having one of the most essential elements toned down for accessibility. You however are now bringing lv 40 (ie GT5) to the table because you are a pathetic fanboy. There is a difference.
Probably something to buy after a price drop
The game deffenitly isn't bad, but it's not good either (Didn't stop me from getting the platinum trophy).
People have said Cross edge, or Star Ocean 4 were bad, but I was able to derive some entertainment from those games. I tried to play Neptunia several times and it does not click at all. I just can't be bothered to give it anymore chances. I'll trade it for ArTonelico. (last game I traded in was 6 years ago)
Why is this game getting any attention at all? (and the attention ain't good from what I'm seeing) I've never seen an Idea Factory game reviewed so much in the west. What's the big deal? Just let NISA and the niche fans enjoy it :)
Probably because it's the most original concepts in the last decade. Honestly I'd like to see the the rights bought by companies like ATLUS, then have a big budget remake.
