NIS America

Clan of Champions Review

Gladiator Ends

HIGH Knocking the sword out of a skeleton's hand, then crushing its skull with a mace a moment later.

LOW Oh good. Let's fight three guys in the crumbling courtyard for the sixth time. That never gets old.

WTF Why does this boss obey none of the game's rules? Why am I fighting him twice?

Mugen Souls Review

Moe'd Down

HIGH Charming an entire group of enemies at once, turning them all into adorable bunny creatures!

LOW Do "something" do get a better ending? What does that mean?!

WTF So many bath scenes!

Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland Review

Perfect Synthesis!

HIGH Seeing what finally became of the kingdom I worked so hard to build.

LOW I just want a Lvl2 fire resistant item, and I know it's here somewhere!

WTF Well, that bath scene was certainly unexpected!

Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 Review

So Much to Not Like, and Yet...

HIGH "Crap. I thought NIS America's plan was to keep that fourth wall up."

LOW Forgetting the skill commands for a new character so she can't do anything during a battle.

WTF Licking "nubile maidens" who are, like, seven years old? Robot-dude, I think this game's M rating is mostly your fault.

GrimGrimoire Review

Unicorns, Specters and Dragons, Oh My!

GrimGrimoire Screenshot

HIGH Completely overrunning the enemy with an army made up entirely of chimera and dragons.

LOW Dedicating 30 minutes to a stage, only to die and have to start all over from the beginning... AGAIN.

WTF Opalneria's gravity-defying boobs.

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten Review

The Family that Slays Together...

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten Screenshot

HIGH Disgaea is still as funny as ever.

LOW It's also just as repetitive, which started to wear on even me when I got stuck.

WTF Using a giant monster as a weapon.

Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel Review

Our Song to the People

HIGH The string of excellent plot twists around the halfway point.

LOW Not figuring out how to use supermoves until I was forty hours in.

WTF "Of" is the only part of the title I understand.

Bleach: Soul Resurreccion Review

Still Less Filler Than the Anime

Bleach: Soul Resurreccion Screenshot

HIGH I can ogle Aizen as much as I want, and nobody can stop me.

LOW Aizen is the cheesiest character in a game full of cheese.

WTF Aizen's ridiculously slow power-walk as his default movement speed.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Review

The Console Wars Get Literal

Hyperdimension Neptunia Screenshot

HIGH The satirical cameos by unnamed game stars.

LOW Waiting for a minute for my hammer to recharge.

WTF Seeing the bruised heroine treated with "bondages" (not a typo!)

Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman Review

It Will be One Huge, EPIC Battle

Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman Screenshot

HIGH The soundtrack (with vocals!) in the New Hero Mastery Dungeon.

LOW Saving before the boss of the aforementioned dungeon, dying, resetting, getting the heck out of Dodge, finding out I still lost all my stuff anyway (including $100,000), and having no one to blame but myself.

WTF Whatever comes out of Pirohiko's mouth that isn't a platitude or a pep talk. And even some of those.
