Top Customer Reviews
Pros: -The game dialogue is absolutely hilarious! There are parodies and references all over this gem. You'll find Sailor Moon, DBZ, Mario, Dead Rising, K-On!, Zelda and more referenced here
-Both Jap & Eng dub are pretty good
-Animations for special attacks are pretty cool to watch
-Lots of free DLC
-Customization combo system leaves for much experimentation
-Can put your own image in the game from your PS3 as a logo on some characters
-The hand drawn characters are beautiful to look at
-Lots of satire & fourth wall breaking
Cons: -Battle system is very slow and tedious
-Healing is an issue
-Event hough the maps vary, they all look the same
-Only a handful of DLC are good/useful. If you bought all the DLC I think it is estimate $90. A lot are DLC outfits
-Shares system which is really important to unlock events/characters/etc is not explained at all
-Due to budget issues with NISA, the DLC characters are missing dialogue through cut scenes
Overall: As bland as the game play is,I primarily played this game for the dialogue.
If it's anime or video game related, this series is gonna rip it to shreds.
Beyond that, Neptune is the most random character I have, personally, ever seen in a video game. The characters are well aware they are in a video game and dont even pretend there's a 4th wall. The story is a unique way of tackling issues of the industry such as console wars and piracy.
The gameplay in the original is, well, it's garbage. The fact this game has gotten, at this point, 9 sequels/spin offs released or in the works shows just how strong the humor in this game is.
If you cant handle anime or video game culture being ripped on, stay away. There is nothing serious in this series.
I love this series. Neptune (the main character of most of the titles) is in my top 3 greatest female protags of all time. She is hilarious.
She's like a T-Rated female deadpool.
Anyway, I could praise the game all day.
In the end, the gameplay sucks. Obviously, the graphics arent much. It is a niche game after all. But this is, one of the few occasions, the characters completely trump the sorry game design and make the game a truly enjoyable experience.
After this title, the gameplay would increase 10-fold to where I rank them near FFX quality gameplay wise.
I give it 3 stars, because while hilarious in every way. The gameplay simply isnt there. That being said, I would recommend it to anyone. Yeah, I know, 3 stars on a game I'd recommend to anyone. It's my review. I do what I want.
Synopsis: takes place in Gameindustri where four goddesses are competing for shares for their consoles the main character Neptune represents a sega console that was never released, the goddess noire who represents Lastation(Playstation) Vert who represents Leanbox(Xbox) and Blanc who represents Lowee(wii) and the villians who represent Arfoire which is basically what represents pirating,
Graphics: 5/10 The game really doesn't do anything to suck you in visually but then again most Jrpgs except final fantasy usually arent the prettiest. Has good 2D anime art but the in game graphics are very crude mostly hallways and the dungeons lack creativity usually the same 8-10 dungeon backgrounds with different sizes. character models are ok but are somewhere around PS2 visuals for this game. The biggest slap in the face is the NPC's other than the four goddesses and some side characters all the NPCs are black outlines and really takes away from you caring about most characters they bring into the mix.
Music: 2/10 The game has music but its done very badly. The game has a lot of customization options i almost wish they would have let you put in your own soundtracks too. Its basically worse than elevator music since its the same battle theme or world theme every time and they just aren't good.
Sound: 6/10 Neptunia has the usual combat sound effects attacks, walking ect. I'm giving this a higher score because of dual audio and that it has more voice acting i feel than the sequels do, but doesn't stand out more than other JRPGS.
Gameplay 5/10 The overworld is generally pretty boring basically you go to one of the four landmasses for each console and take on story quests or sidequests. The continents look interesting but there isn't any exploring you basically go to the landmass shop listen to small blog posts from the goddesses which other than a few are usually short and not too interesting or take on quests. Also, the option to change continents requires you to go through a small mini dungeon to get to the other continent, which is always the same low level monsters and by the time you are level 60 its a small inconvenience but its just a waste of an hour or two the whole time you're playing, the quests are usually not very interesting will give you a description of why you are doing it sometimes a level range and will take you to a hallway dungeon to clear. As for the battle system it is turn based and you will run into random battles in dungeons. My biggest gripe with the game is battles are too long. In the battle there is an option to skip battle animations which if it wasn't there i'm sure i would have ended the game early. A lot of the dungeons are timed and you get rewarded based on how long you take and i wanted max money per task and after a few hours i didn't have the patience to watch the animations anymore. The game lets you set up combos to break an enemy's guard and deal massive damage which is about the only way to go and the combo options give you a lot of flexibility. The other problem with the game is the healing its kind of like FF12 and gambits but each skill is set to trigger a certain way and you cant change it. some activate while taking damage some at the beginning of your turn but the biggest problem is you cant heal out of combat or revive... at all if a character dies in combat they come back at 1HP but until near end game i cant remember a time I was able to bring someone back up and all the items based on healing drop after a battle but all the good skills take too many of them and buying them is just to expensive.
Story: 6/10 The story itself is quite forgettable but i feel it deserves a higher score because the premise of the game bringing consoles into live as anime girls in a living gameindustry sounds like a great idea and in this game is heavily underutilized. Very few of the monsters give you a chuckle based on their name or game references like the sequel does. The game has a lot of event sequences that has story development but other than those usually you are just doing sidequests till the end of the game.
Conclusion 5/10: All in all the game doesn't give itself the opening it should have. Am i glad i played it? I felt there were some pieces of the game that i did thoroughly enjoy but i think i was more motivated to beat the game because Hyperdimension neptunia mk2 just arrived halfway through the game. If you're a person who wants to play a game series through and through and want to support the developers then go ahead and start here. However if you like the premise of the game and like anime and try this and get turned off try out neptunia mk 2 and it likely will make you reconsider the series there are a lot of improvements made and i definitely don't regret continuing the series.
