All that aside, the game is fine for what it is -- a Dynasty Warriors clone. If you go in expecting it to be like the original Ninety-Nine Nights, you'll be disappointed. If you just want to play something like DW but with different characters then this game is pretty good.
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. It's not going to blow any minds or stand out as a footnote in history but it's unabashingly enjoyable once you get pass the slight learning curve!
The first thing you'll notice is N3II expects you to sprint around while blocking and tumbling. If you don't pay attention to your surroundings archers, shamans, and annoying bird-things will whittle you down quickly. This game takes the philosophy of "death by a thousand paper cuts" and runs with it shamelessly!
N3II likewise has the distinction of being much harder than a typical Dynasty Warriors title. Some stages end with huge boss battles that can decimate your hero of choice and send you home crying. In other dire situations you must defend a castle gate from an onslaught of enemies who can do damage to the surrounding fortifications over time. "Winning" is one half trial and error and one half leveling up your weapons, stats, and equippable spells. Akin to an rpg N3II expects you to "grind" as you re-do certain missions to farm for experience orbs and hidden items.
Aesthetically N3II went through a bit of an identity crisis. The first game was lively,colorful,and whimsical. It wasn't too embarrassed to make you fight a giant frog-man wearing a king's royal red cape or put you into the shoes of a cute water bubble casting witch flying around on an enchanted staff.Read more ›
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). While each character has their own narrative which shows their part in the game's events, the flow is disjointed. You learn about the Lord of the Night mainly in Galen's side, while Sephia's does not reveal a thing and only serves expand her character(that's when i learned of her very one-sided crush on Galen). One could play each missions in chronological order with out beating any character final mission. All 5 characters are unlocked by Galen's 4th mission. 3 1/2 stars
The game has nice detailed graphics, it's not AAA gorgeous, but it's still good. Unlike the first game which can show hundreds of troops, N3II has just two hundred at most, no slowdown. The setting feels akin to Lord of the Rings, Color Range varies for each level, From dark and gritty to Arctic blue. The levels are huge and have diversity, You will fight in Forts, castles, caverns, forests, caves, and N3 II version's of Hell/Purgatory. Animation is smooth, though enemy movement seems a little too fast. Each weapon has their own design and each character has extra costume colors, both reflect the chosen character in cutscenes. Camera can freak-out when fighting to close to walls and a FEW graphical hiccups. blood effect are average and could be turned off, while gore is mainly separation at the torso and waist, as well as one arm for giants.Read more ›
Like any game like dynasty warrior, which the game is quite similar to. You'll be facing off against wave after wave of enemies while trying to complete objectives. Sounds simple at first but n3ii has somewhat of a learning curve. First of all there are no tutorial you'll be thrust into a large battle from the get go, with only simple hints telling you your various special moves. This can be confusing but its part of the game you'll learn as you go.
Besides the learning curve the game is quite simple control wise. Standard light and heavy attacks, mixing them performs powerful wider attacks. Controls are easy to master after a few minutes.
The levels are varied but are monotonous when it comes to enemy placement and variation of them. This is common in these sort of games but I'd thought I should still mention it.
Graphics are very good, all the characters look unique with a cross between medieval and anime style designs. The environments look good with detail put into the large structures such as castles and the boss designs are strangely interesting.
Music is fantastic, they fit the game. Nothing too memorable but when you play the game you'll appreciate the music playing at each different stage.
N3ii is a great game I am new to the these sort games and I enjoyed it. I bought the game knowing what it is but not what to expect. Its a fine game if your looking for a challenging hack'n slash title. Achievements are easy to get and there's online co-op but unfortunately its hard to find someone to play with unless you have a friend with a copy.
