Product Description

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, the sequel to the highly popular mystery adventure game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, will be making its way to the PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe this fall in both retail and digital form. As in the first game, players will take on the role of a high school student as they are thrust into a life-or-death situation, and must use their wits and teamwork to survive. Each student was chosen for a special ability they possess, making them the "ultimate" example of something. Characters in this title are also designed by Rui Komatsuzaki for a unique and darker take on the anime style.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you Loved the First One You'll Love the 2nd Too! September 2, 2014
More Dangaronpa madness! Once again, a completely ordinary high school student is attending a prestigious academy....this time, however, the game is played on an island - which is a nice change of pace from the last game. And - like the first only way to get off the island is to "graduate," which involves murdering another student and getting away with it. All of students instantly turned against one another, And if you don't play your cards right in the class trials, everybody but the murderer will be executed.

Play-wise, the game is improved over the first one, There is more to do during class trials and there are new mini-games to play. You don't need to have played the first game to play the 2nd, but it would help as this game does build upon the first game's play mechanics and story. Graphics wise the game is the same as the first in terms of quality, however the island setting does add some color to the game. If you love a great adventure game get it and if you played the first one, this one is a natural.

NOTE: The first part of this review is a copy/paste of my review for the first game, "Trigger Happy Havoc". An update for this game is added at the end. Both games are similar. Please know that it is very important to play the first game first as there are lots of references in "Goodbye Despair" you will not get or enjoy without it.

Do you like murder? Hilariously childish and crude humor? Solving mysteries? Making new dangerous friends? Laughing out loud? Exercising your mind and reflexes? Twisted and sadistic politics? Sex and violence? If you answered yes to ANY of these questions, you need to own and play this game. You actually don't need the LSD though since the game will make you feel like you're on it already. Consider it an LSD simulator of sorts. Teddy bear included.

I was given this game to try by a friend's son and the first thing I thought when I looked at the box was "WTF is this? Who the hell named this game? Who designed this cover? What's with the teddy bear with an "M" rating? This game is gonna SUCK, but I'll borrow it anyway so I don't insult my buddy's son." I never intended to play it, but after being stuck home for a week with the flu, boredom got the best of me and this game was within reach at the moment. Well, all I can say is do NOT judge a game by its cover and don't wait for the flu. What a long strange trippy experience this is. I'd love to have been in the room when the people at Amazon tried to figure out what catagory to put this game in. It has everything. Everything. And it's all sick, twisted, demented and way over the top.

If you want an idea of the story, gameplay, etc, read the other reviews, but I highly suggest you don't. However, if you started reading them, stop now. Buy the game. Play the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrill that will keep you glued to your Vita. October 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
For those considering this game without having played the first, I strongly suggest picking up Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc beforehand (since there are quite a few references to the first game that will be missed if starting on this game instead). Knowledge is not necessary, but this game spoils many of the major events of the first game, so if you want the most enjoyment from this series, it would be best to play them in order.

This is a Visual Novel game, so much of the game consists of reading. If you don't like reading or story-heavy games, then this might not be the game for you. Despite having small minigame and gameplay segments, the strongest part of this game is the plot and characters, rather than gameplay.

Characterization is excellent in this game; the entire cast is quirky and I found myself liking almost all of them. I feel as though it's an improvement over the first game, since all characters now have 6 possible free time events to more fully flesh out their background, and I felt more attachment to the characters in this game compared to the first. The cases are no less insane and captivating as they are in Trigger Happy Havoc as well.

A warning to those who like to research their games: searching up videos of Danganronpa 2 often may lead you to spoilers, so if you are set on playing the game, try to avoid reading message boards or clicking too many videos (as the video titles or thumbnails themselves often have spoilers).

Once I started, I could not put this game down. As a warning, it may consume you. It will likely stick with you for some time.

Fight the despair. Find the truth. Survive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story and wonderful setup September 10, 2014
Danganronpa is the quitenssential murder mystery game... on LSD. Waking up in a classroom, you are quickly transported to a tropical island where you are introduced to your fellow classmates/prisoners and given the option of escape by murdering a fellow classmate. Other introduced motives and side plots add greatly to the overall mystery and create more of a living feeling, and the murders are better set up so you're more involved and part of the whole story rather than coming in afterwards like Sherlock.

The characters are all idealized archetypes of various professions, with some psychopaths thrown in for extra flavor. Each actually has a feeling of being alive, and the twists that the story takes will be very surprising based on some characters.

The only crushing downside are the minigames. While some are the traditional expected ones, others are stupid and do little to add to the gameplay but do much to add to frustration and annoyance. The rapid argument is by far the worst, where you have to swipe against every line someone says by pushing in a random direction, but also included is hangmans gambit, now with damage, and a revamped final argument that triples the length of the experience but completely removes any feeling of progress.

Pointless, worthless minigames aside, they simply can't tarnish whats another diamond on the Vita landscape. The story is great, the jokes and jabs at itself are funny and well delivered, and the psychotic Monokuma is as entertaining as ever. While the great twist is a lot more apparent, even knowing its coming doesn't really take away from the enjoyment of teasing out the mysteries and getting to know the characters.
