The second entry into the Neptunia series on PC. One again this is an anime inspired RPG game with your basic turn based combat and dungeon crawling with the information relayed to you through visual novel like conversations with a few cutscenes tossed in. Once again the humor relies heavily on anime and game themed knowledge to fully understand, but there is plenty of comedy just from the interactions from the main characters. Speaking of main characters, this time around the four Goddesses bow out as the main characters as their sisters the CPU Candidates take the spotlight. The main one, Nepgear, is not nearly as confident as her big sister Neptune. She manages though and comes into her own, though she still isn?t as fun as having Neptune as the main. PROS -Anime like graphics -Nice soundtrack, though the opening is in Japanese much like most anime openings anymore. -Easy to get into controls with a thorough tutorial. -A lot of characters to pick from for your party. -Some nice touches such as the Lily system which gives skills for certain characters when paired up together for combo attacks. -A lot of customization options. -The addition of a few CGI cutscenes. CONS -Seems the dungeons are kind of rehashes of the previous game in some ways. -Sometimes the jokes can be plain awful, and non anime fans, or casual gamers may not even understand them. -Sometimes things may seem a bit repetitive, but that is normal for most RPG games thanks to the grinding. -Nepgear being the lead character instead of Neptune. Not as good as the first, but still pretty fun.
The second in the main series of games available on Green Man Gaming, and another winner to boot. This time around the CPU Candidates, aka the little sisters of the CPUs are front and center. Though the story is more an alternate time line of sorts, all of the fun and goofiness is still there. However with Nepgear being the main character this time around, the game can be a bit more serious at times since she is actually a bit more responsible than her older sister. No matter what though, this is a great game to add to your collection if you love games with humor, an anime feel or just love a good RPG. Doubly so when on sale as it is a steal at the prices it drops down to.
This is a remake of the second Hyperdimension Neptunia game. It follows a alternate store to the first game, meaning that they are not connected in any way. It offers all the things we loved about the first game (parody, laughs, cute girls, and more) minus the tedious grinding. It also has a lot of replay-ability as it contain multiple endings, including a true ending (some would say that it's very painful to get them all). Story wise, it follows the point of view from the main character of the first game's sister and is shorter than the first game. Gameplay wise, it is the same mechanics. Overall, a fun game you'll want to play if you are a anime fan and just want to relax from a stressful day.
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2 I feel isn't as good as Re;Birth1 in a lot of ways. Re;Birth2 is still pretty fun but could use more optimization as well. You travel the world as Nepgear ,Neptune's younger sister, trying to save the world from destruction. In this game you are giving the ability to add 4 characters to your active party ,unlike Re;birth1 only giving you 3, as well as 4 in your back up party. I did feel that beside for the story and the new characters there was hardly anything new to this game with most of the dungeons and monsters reappearing from Re;Birth1. The game doesn't run as well as Re;Birth1 and it seems there are more problems ,most of which I haven't faced. Overall it is a good game but you may run not run the game as well/perfect as you ran Re;Birth1.
Just going to say this review is gonna be filled with some mixed messages. I've only recently stumbled into the series after a mishap with gifting gone wrong with ReBirth 1 and I wound up mostly enjoying that game. The combat is fun, I like the game / industry humor but not so much the fan service. It's kinda like Disgaea but with a more ..'kawaii' wrapping and without the large panel based map battles. What I like: It's more of the same but expanded, dungeons are larger to explore, there's more variety to character moves and more characters in general. The game keeps what was good but improves upon the first in terms of gameplay. The new characters reflect the companies they spoof well, Cave being a very amusing one who represents a company who makes bullet hell shooters...and her specials all reflect this. There's also a lot more characters and more focus on the non-CPU (transforming) characters. The combat is fun, more so with a 4th character in battle allowing you to feel less cramped with battle options. Feels like you're more able to dish-out damage while having 1 character handle support. What I don't like: The game takes on a more darker tone from the get go, which loses a lot of impact when you find this is NOT the same universe at all. Shortly after the start a character recounts how she met Neptune and ...that's not how it happened. So this game has absolutely nothing to do with 1 story wise-it's another universe. Yes you still care for the characters but you have to wonder why they'd spin off in a series of games that already has (at the time of writing) 4 spin off titles on the Vita. There's more 'fanservice' which is less appealing because if you happen to look at the screens ...you'll notice there's 2 very young girls and they aren't shy with pushing some really dumb perversion with them. They reuse a lot, I mean a bloody lot. Some music, characters & moves, the animated portraits, some maps are straight up lifted from the first game. I'm currently on chapter 5 and it's been very repetitious, the same Underling character getting in the way and getting away, even when her boss characters are defeated It feels like they dumped their efforts into the new characters vs adding interesting enemies. Maybe this changes later. 3 chapters in and I really feel like I've done nothing because you just don't stop this 1 dumb character, or it's subordinates. Near the end of it someone else FINALLY drops in. Currently the game is bugged too, the world map music is unbearably loud and the rest of the music despite being jacked up well above the other sounds is too low. Which is a shame since the music is fun. There's a mod on the steam community forums to adjust the music till they do something about it. I'm not saying this is a bad game, though I do seem to have more complaints than praise. I do like the first game better in ways...kinda like how Disgaea 1 had better story and characters and Disgaea 2 had superior gameplay, this is a lot like that. But if this game seems a bit wonky and you're interested in the new one coming out, Neptunia Victory...I wouldn't blame you for skipping this one since as I've stated it has nothing to do with the story of 1, maybe not Victory either. You'd honestly have to read what game has to do with what since they decided to not link this game with the first.
