Meow to Tail a Story

HIGH Witty dialogue and great voice acting make the characters more personable.

LOW Getting stuck because I couldn't see the one object I needed to interact with.

WTF How every character seems to possess advanced knowledge of quantum physics.

It seems like most of the people who wrote reviews of 999 thought very highly of it. I'm not sure why that was; I found the game to be a fairly tedious exercise in the repetition of insufficiently interesting puzzles. 999 creates this problem for itself because of its structure. The enforced replays that are central to 999's design and fiction ask for more from the puzzles and dialogue than they are able to contribute as art or entertainment.

Second Verse, Worse Than the First

HIGH The game's climax, which does a magnificent job of tying its plot and its relationship arc together.

LOW Completing the game for the third time and realizing I'd have to do the first puzzle again again.

WTF Lady, we are about to die of hypothermia. I do not need to hear about ice-9.

Shiren the Wanderer Review

Like a Rogue, but not.

HIGH The fact that this game was even released in the United States.

LOW Unavoidable pop-up enemies that kill your equipment in one hit.

WTF Giving bosses immunity to most items and effects.
