Summary: I literally fell asleep playing Hyperdimension Neptunia . Full on, snoring for thirty minutes while my characters bobbed up and down in battle stances waiting for me to input their next attack. Now I will admit it was late, but I have never been so disinterested in what I was doing in a game that I've fallen asleep before, and that includes some very late-night romps through other turn-based JRPGs.
Hyperdimension Neptunia V Review - poking fun at the console wars with an RPG twist
2 May 2013
Summary: An hilarious RPG that tries to be light-hearted, yet deep at the same time. Those who love Compile Heart style RPGs will fall in love with this sequel, but detractors will turn their nose up at it. Great for the fans but not a gateway game to bring non-fans into the fold.
Pros: Anime presentation, Deep, layered storytelling, The ample fan service
Conclusion: Just like the two titles before, Hyperdimension Neptunia V is a lengthy experience. Depending on how you approach the game, you can since 3-40 hours into the experience. I’m currently clocked in at 55 hours. In terms of overall satisfaction, Victory comes up a bit short when compared to mk2, but that won’t stop you from enjoying the epic adventure.
Summary: Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 is a sequel to the RPG Hyperdimension Neptunia, which allows you to take control of a humanoid version of fantasy game consoles. For NeptuniaMk2 you will once again become a console goddess to protect the land of Gamindustri.
Excerpt: Have you ever secretly wondered what your favorite game console would look if it was a cute Anime girl? Wonder no more thanks to the Hyperdimension Neptunia series! The Neptunia series was developed by Idea Factory and its subsidiary Compile Heart. It was published in America by NIS. The companies have met before, in games such as Trinity Universe and Cross Edge (both for the PlayStation 3).
Excerpt: Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 is a strange game. It's a JRPG that looks and plays like JRPGs are supposed to, but it's also very streamlined, focusing less on deep gameplay elements and more on an almost convoluted storyline that slowly starts to make more sense the longer you stay with the game. Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 is also a great game.
