Summary: I had a lot of fun with the original "N3" and figured this one would be at least as fun, so I bought it. It turns out that the developer fixed a lot of the pacing issues that were so irritating in the first one and GREATLY expanded the characters powers and abilities. These fixes make the game faster, smoother, and way more fun than the original. A good buy for anyone who loves hack-and -slash games.
Summary: While this game is a great challenge, it packs loads and hours of fun. The graphics are impressive for a launch title, gameplay is very similiar to that of Dynasty Warriors, and the storyline so far is pretty intriguing. The only problem I may have is sometimes the dub actor/actress' voices don't fit the characters. But overall, It is a great game and I highly recommend this game. Easily one of the best Xbox exclusive I have played.
Great hack n slash but a few issues keep it from achieving total perfection!

Summary: N3II was a gamble on my part. While I staunchly support the hack n slash genre this one got negative marks across the board at many review sites. Was it "that awful"? The masochist in me bristled with excitement as I placed my order! Disappointingly I must confess this is not a "So bad it's epic!" affair. N3II is simply "rather decent" for the genre and it fails at being the terrible intriguing train-wreck most gaming critics made it out to be.
Summary: This game is a standard hack-and-slash game with very little thought involved. There are some puzzles to work out to unlock doors and stuff, but basically you kill as many guys as possible to earn xp and level characters, skills, & weapons. I enjoy this game due to its great graphics and good old fashion lets see how many kills we can rack up.
Summary: I've been playing this for about 3 hours now and I'm really glad I gave it a chance. I picked it up at Blockbuster for about $8 and it's a lot of mindless fun. The gameplay feel is strong, the customizations and upgrades keep it interesting and there's a good variety of enemies. You know what to expect from these Dynasty Warriors-type games, so if it's not your style, you won't like any of them, but if a true hack-n-slash game is what you're in the mood for, pick this up...
Summary: game is decent, fun collect and usings skills and items. story line sorta basic but still just starting from the beginning. graphics and gameplay are fun. would be a little more interesting to have a little more options to the game play world.. N3 is still a fun game and still has a good range of tackicts, good action rpg but has lots of room for expansion.
Summary: The game is very good to do once. I won't review on the graphics since this game was not made to look real. The characters are very well made and their storylines flow very well. The water witch is the most difficult to master since she has no deffense and her attack is very weak. Finding weapon upgrades might be difficult for some characters due to the requirements. Leveling up proves to be very repetitive.
Summary: N3II is far better than the original. The Overall story revolves around a Entity called The Lord of the Night's conquest of the world, leaving the country of Orphea one of the last standing. While the first game's story was merely connected by chance meetings of few characters, N3II story is about 5 individuals who unite under Orphea's banner to fight back against the Lord of the Night (reminds me of power rangers).
