Summary: Any visual novel or mystery fan with a DS (or 3DS) should definitely check out this game. It has some pretty endearing characters and puzzles that actually make you think, along with some point and click going into each room. The game has 6 endings so it'll keep you playing for quite a while, and each ending really starts to build off each other as you can't view all of the rooms in one go.
Summary: There's good stories. There's great stories. And over that, there's this game. I don't know how to explain how amazing and surprising is the story of 999. It has everything: Humor, suspense, intrigue and a incredible ending that you will remember for years. For all the fans of graphic novels, this is a must have.
Summary: As far as visual novels go, I'd say this game is one of my favorites. If you're not familiar with visual novels, it's basically like reading a story with some choices sprinkled in. This game actually has puzzles in there, which are fun to play and are thematically involved with the story. Speaking of the story, that's what's important with 999 -- and it's brilliant.
Summary: I read an article on a gaming website that pointed me towards this game, I had a few extra dollars to spend so I said sure why not. I fell in love with the game almost instantly. I love the way it hooked me from the beginning with the mystery and intrigue surrounding the main character and those around him. The puzzles are stimulating, you do feel a great sense of accomplishment when you figure them out and solve them, and when you do it quickly..
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: 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.
