Never played a visual novel? You'll still love this one!

Summary: I never thought that I was a visual novel kind of person. I love reading, and I love manga, and I love video games, so it seems like it would be a no-brainer. But picking up this game... I was blown away. This is brilliantly written, and all of the characters feel fleshed out, and very real. The story is revealed perfectly, with you not knowing everything until getting the best ending.
Summary: If you are interested in Virtue's Last Reward you MUST absolutely play 999 first. Not only my favorite ds game but definitely in my top 5 video-game series list. The zero escape series are an absolute gem in storytelling, several sleepless nights during and after playing the game, it's really that good.
Summary: Played this game through once and really enjoyed the choose-your-own story. I know there are at least 5 more endings, and I started another game but honestly couldn't push myself to go through some of the tutorials and puzzles again
Summary: Sometimes I ask myself on what makes a good game. Does it need to be based on gameplay, in which control is in the players' hand and they have full control over their surroundings? Or can it be based on story, in which control is taken away from the player, but they experience a fantastic story and sympathetic characters? Or maybe a mixture of both? 999 is a puzzle game in which it fits into the latter half to a T.
Summary: Its an puzzle, its adventure, and its addictive. I played the 3ds version first and I was hooked. Be warned, its for people with brains and can do major puzzles. Or...just cheat with walkthroughs. Then why bother play it at all?
Summary: I bought this game for my Nintendo 3DS (which also plays DS games) and it was really worth it. This game has a related game for 3DS, Zero's Escape: Last Virtue Reward, which I intend to buy. It's like you are playing a "Saw" movie. You are trapped inside a sinking ship and have 9 hours to escape.
One of the greatest stories I've ever experienced.

Summary: Out of all of the books, movies, games, ect. that I've experienced stories through, this is definitely one of the greatest. The storyline uses the video game and Nintendo DS mediums brilliantly to tell a story in a way that would be impossible on any other format. The gameplay itself was challenging enough to be interesting, while still being easy enough as to not be a burden.
A riveting story that leaves you craving the true ending.

Summary: A riveting story that leaves you craving the true ending, 999 is a masterpiece. After getting the first ending, you wont be able to put down the game. The OST sets the mood and the narative manages to put you in junpei's place, in the middle of the ocean, plunging into the deep.
