IGN: Ninety-Nine Nights 2 Review

N3II is like a friend who tells the same old stories over and over, only instead of finding this trait charming you can't help but loathe his inability to move on from the past. With its myriad of problems and creatively bankrupt game design, this "new" game feels like a retread from the moment you boot it up to the moment you chuck it into the garbage can in disgust.

Some 360 exclusives are really doing bad right now. Still I cant wait for Halo Reach.

ATLGAMER3117d ago

Just play halo 3 and add boobs

Arnon3117d ago

Well... this game looks terrible. Looked interesting at first, but... damn. That's pitiful.

Army_of_Darkness3117d ago

I know your lying on your death bed rite now in hopes that your new Kinect transplant will give you a full recovery, but just remember... miracles don't happen all the time:(

Lets just pray that the 3rd "gears" of survival will "Reach" you on time;)

Shepherd 2143116d ago

That comment makes no sense. Halo Reach is a completely different creature from Halo 3, so much so that i may not even like it as much.

There are also no boobs in Halo 3 or Halo Reach so i dont know what kind of example you were trying to conjure up.

Who actually thought that this game was actually going to be good anyway. I sure as hell didnt. The 360 still has plenty of games. Ive already enjoyed Mass Effect 2, Bad Company 2, Alan Wake, and Red Dead Redemption this year, and im still looking foward to Black Ops and Halo Reach. Then theres several coming out next year too.

Thats all my wallet can handle really, and i will be quite satisfied.

Joule3117d ago

Are you and BubbRubb new trolls on N4G. Trying to be ghetto?

klado3117d ago

Same two guys...same stupid grammar...learn how to write dude.

BubbRubb3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

we're not the same person, we're friends. and what's wrong with my grammar?

lol @ two of your last comments...

"I want this anyway, but damn, two sequel worse than its predecessors...ok"
"Why didn't no one spotted the guy talking that effeminate...a fagboy"

talk about 'stupid' grammar

BubbRubb3117d ago

i think this still has a shot at goty as long as crackdown keeps getting stellar reviews.

Spenok3116d ago

Was that supposed to be sarcasm?

Shang-Long3117d ago

whats going on with MS. seriously?

SOAD3117d ago

Konami made the game. A better question is, what is going on with Konami.

An even better question is, WHY HASN'T MS ACQUIRED FIRST PARTY STUDIOS??

Spenok3116d ago

Good question Soad... you would think they would put there money into some. However if you look at it most developers are either first party already, multiplatform developers who want to stay that way. Or developers who are owned by EA, ActivisionBlizzard or various other companies. So who exactly would they buy if they could?

EVILDEAD3603117d ago

IGN gave the first one a 56..but this time IGN went absolutely out of it way to destroy this a reviewer that says I used to like this kind of gameplay but now I 'grew up'?

So because he doesnt like it now..he overkills it? LOL..who cares..never owned the first one..didn't even know when this one was being releaed..

People hate on Dynasty Warriors too..but I loooove those games..button mashers or not..I'll stick with DW when I want my fix though


PS3Freak3117d ago

I used to love dynasty warriors. They were some of my favorite games on the ps2. Then, i grew up. I guess i am in the same boat as the reviewer.

klado3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

I want this anyway, but damn, two sequel worse than its predecessors...ok

sak5003117d ago

But the IGN were on MS's payrole..

What happened there sony started paying them heavly /s

on topic
Dont know will wait for more reviews and hope a demo is out soonish.

It's just flop after flop...I mean, when is this madness gonna stop? Will the bots finally get a game worthy of buying?

Alan Flop
Ninety-nine flops 2

Madness I tell you! MADNESS!!!

TheGR3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )



SeanRL3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Alan wake may have been a flop in sales, but it was a win in gameplay.

Edit: Whoever disagreed with me, at least have the balls to say why.

MmaFanQc3117d ago

highly repetitive and dull gameplay

the enemies ... always the same three enemy(birds, moving things and shadow man)

the final boss is a big joke(i was like "hmkey... thats it??!? the fu.. it this shit...."

the atmosphere, graphic and narating was really nice but everything else was a let down. (IMO offcourse)

SeanRL3117d ago

Thank you, u now have balls...

msbabie200343117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

you know i could say the exact same things about another game, god of war series. also id like to add killzone 2 sinple player to that list as well.

same 1 or 2 enemies, dull repetetive gameplay, only broke that when u got the mech thing, nothing special. the boss lol at that one.

and the kicker from you "the atmosphere, graphic and narating was really nice but everything else was a let down. (IMO offcourse) "

now i know narration wasnt in killzone 2, if i took that one part out what u said there describes killzone to a tea, in my opinion of course :)

badz1493117d ago

what's GoW and KZ2 has to do anything about AW? and to be honest, 1 or 2 enemies? seriously? have you ever played the game? take a look at this and tell me to the face that's only 1 or 2!:

and have you ever played any FPS before? repetitive gameplay? of course it will be run, shoot, run and in KZ2, cover all over again until the end! what else does FPS games have to it? trolling much?

msbabie200343117d ago

i see a ton of ps3 fanboys in here mentioning other games as flops. so yea i mentioned other games as well. what does alan wake have to do with n3? see how that works?

seriously, you guys wanna bash 360 games constantly, that have nothing to do with the topic/game at hand, so i felt free to say my opinion of some ps3 games in here.

turn about is fair play bud.

jetlian3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

AW last night and right now i'm at the start of episode 5. same enemies you say?!! shadow mans look different and some are people you talked to in town. You have the lumberjacks with axe, chainsaws,you have all kinds og objects from trains, cars, tracters etc

hell even gow1-3 use a lot of the same enemies. the weapons play the same yet he complains the characters are the same

VideoGameJimmy3116d ago

There was a comment regarding the flop of 360 exclusives one after the other. That's why Alan Wake was brought up.

Saying Killzone 2 is repetitive is calling Modern Warfare 2 repetitive. Same run and gun shotting.

N3:2 is bad. The demo was terrible and the full game is just as bad, if not worse.

UnSelf3117d ago

aside from ur obvious fanboyism 99 flops 2 was hilarious

-MD-3117d ago

It didn't. He's just upset he doesn't get to play one of the best games of 2010.

Lionhead3117d ago

Well if a PS3 exclusive scores below 90 and is a flop the same applies to 360 exclusives.

That's what he is trying to convey I believe >_>

jaosobno3117d ago

It flopped by selling 0,5 million worldwide instead of millions as expected. Take into account that game was developed for 9 years (since 2001.).

I'd say that, that counts as megaflop.

VideoGameJimmy3116d ago

Go trade in your 360 with Alan Wake for a PS3 and get Heavy Rain.

mrcash3117d ago

Alan wake is an amazing game, sadly it hasn't had a great reception amongs the 360 gamers, I just finished playing it a few days ago and I was definitely not disappointed. Sadly I didn't contribute to it's sales, since i bought it used from one of my friends for only 30$ mos def a steal.

strotee3117d ago

It was so "amazing" you couldn't throw a few bones to the developer?

mrcash3117d ago

There's no way i could pass up on only paying half price for it. At the end of the day I still look for the best deal I can get, I don't think I'm alone on that. I don't have money to give away.

badz1493117d ago

from what you've said, the irony is in your username LOL! but I agree with u nonetheless. you're not alone on always finding for the best deal!

Moonboots3117d ago

Who didn't see this coming. Nobody asked for the sequel and the original was not well received. I think this is more for the Japanese but they are already playing Dynasty Warriors.

4/10 seems extra harsh though. Sounds like he sucks at the game and can't pay attention to saving so he is taking his stupidity out on the score.

Blaze9293117d ago

"Sounds like he sucks at the game and can't pay attention to saving so he is taking his stupidity out on the score. "

that's been most of IGN's reviews for some time now....

Valay3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Extreme? Sorry, I had to.

NYC_Gamer3117d ago

whats the flop count so far?

Redrum0593117d ago

ITS OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

T9X693117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Compared to Sony's exclusives? About the same.

SOCOM: Confrontation
Vampire Rain: Altered Species
Last Rebellion
Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire
The Punisher: No Mercy
Cross Edge
Genji: Days of the Blade
White Knight Chronicles

Both consoles have their fair share of flops.

EDIT: @Moonboots - Well I was going by review scores not sales. Its pretty sad Modnation Racers isn't selling well, its a very good game and I been playing it none stop. The amount of things you can create in that game with a little bit of time and creativity is just amazing. I own both consoles as well and to be honest if a fanboy post some crap to tick people off, I just post something right back. Doesn't matter if its against PS3 or Xbox, I own both and I get to play what I want, so getting fanboys all butt hurt for being douche bags is fun as hell lol.

seij5553117d ago

Um, only flops were Lair and Haze.

Moonboots3117d ago (Edited 3117d ago )

Funny no mention of Mod Nation Racers or 3D Dot Heros and those are just in the past month..

Nation scored around the same as Alan Wake and 3D Dot Heros in the 70's. Sales, well neither seem to chart very high at all.

On N4G do they rate a 360 flop different than a PS3 flop?

I own both consoles for the record and love them both but let's be honest here. Especially when there seems to be many folks who have come here just to scream flop and tick people off by acting like douches.

@infernostew: Oh, so NN2 was worked on for 10 years and all funded by MS(even though this is Konami) and it was hyped like crazy? Seriously?

They were retail games. You don't get to chose which you consider "niche" or not. Why don't you go write a flow chart on what you feel is considered hyped vs niche vs funded, etc?

All it sounds like are excuses.. But you can save them with me, I don't subscribe to this whole "flop" thing.. If I like a game then it's a good and gets played period. I don't get anything from game sales, I just want good games.

I was simply following the same criteria many here who love screaming "FLOP!" are using.

Infernostew3117d ago

3D Dot Heroes is such a big flop. I mean its development time was like 10 years, funded all by Sony and was hyped like crazy. /s Quit confusing niche games for ones that were always supposed to appeal to the mass media and had a lot of hype.

Meowhammad3117d ago

Cross Edge & Vampire Rain are also for the 360, retard.
The Punisher: No Mercy is a PSN game.
