description

Gamers who love Trinity Universe, here is another cute, wacky, but exciting RPG for you. Chou Jigen Game! Neptune is the fruit of combined efforts between Sega, Gust, Compile Heart, Nippon Ichi and Idea Factory. Like Trinity Universe, you lead a cast of pretty girls to go save a world.

In Game Gyou World, four goddesses are fighting to rule the world, and during the confusion, an evil goddess Majiekon sends monsters down to wreak havoc. You are Neptune, a seemingly ordinary girl entrusted with an impossible task.

Don't worry, you have friends, and Purple Heart, your alternative personality to aid you.

Only buy if you know what you're getting into
There's a lot of amusement to be had in Neptune, but there's many glaring flaws that, if you know the companies working on this game, you would come to unfortunately expect and deal with. Of course you would expect me to fill out another 5/5 review for this game, seeing as I spent $90+shipping on this DX set, but I think I'll try to point out everything I can think.
First off, the resemblances to Trinity Universe is appalling. The menu navigation system and story telling seem like they were ripped straight out of the game. Not necessarily a bad thing, as the art and voice acting is very clean, but the menu based navigation and systems might not attract many people. Lots of menus, some of them a little confusing.
The story itself is amusing, silly, whatever you'd expect from the teams behind this. The characters and worlds are based off of the companies we know and love in the real world. The novelty may be enough to drive people to play this game. It sure got me.
The battle system is an interesting combo link system. Essentially, a character has AP, and deals a series of 4 attacks with button combinations in order to deal damage. A special property or move can be assigned to each of those buttons in any combination within a badly designed menu, creating a system that rewards long combos full of links, special moves, and AP regeneration. It's an entertaining system with lots of potential, but I figure majority of people will just make chains that spam a single attack over and over and deal plenty enough damage. It works well enough.
What really drags down the game are the technical points. The game will not install on the hard drive. The load times are atrocious, and the lag spikes just shouldn't happen on a PS3. Considering how plain battles look in general, it's really unacceptable for it to be any slower than Trinity Universe. All of this is prevalent throughout the game and really slows down the entire game.
I also think some of the sound balance is a little off; not between music, sfx, and voices, but within each of those categories, it seems like some are just way louder than others. In battle, Konpa always sounds extremely loud, almost like her sound samples are about to be clipped. I don't really know why.
So why do I still give this game an ok rating? Because, like most other people of this generation, I'm a sucker for what I like and am willing to put up with a lot to play a game. There's a lot to like in this game, but there's also plenty to abhor. I would ONLY recommend this game to people who know exactly what they're getting into, and are willing to put up with the flaws because they know exactly what some of these JRPG companies are capable of (or not).
