One of the best game stories ever written,
This review is from: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
999 and Zero Escape, as a single entry, easily go into my personal "Top 5 games of all time." The stories are gripping, the writing is clever and smart, and the science-fiction actually treats game mechanics - like multiple playthroughs - as story components. Zero Escape in particular has fantastic voiced dialogue, and they even give you the option to have Japanese vs. English audio. I went with Japanese, as I was always leery of English dubs for anime, but apparently the English VO is absolutely superb. Also, my one annoyance with 999 was having to replay entire portions of the game on different playthroughs, and tediously hold down the "fast forward" button to skip through all those novel/dialogue that I had already read. No more, with Zero Escape - the game visually shows you the tree-branching storyline, and you can skip to various points in the branching story at any time.
Play 999, and get this game.
