Resurrecting from the Grave of Despair: Review of the Complete 9-Nines Series
EDIT: I totally realized I didn’t talk about the characters at all. Oops!
Right so this blasted game that took me 4 years of following it finally comes to an end! I think it’s about time we celebrate this with a full review…….
Except I forgot my own template for a full review kek
(I’m totally not copy-pasting template from another full review as you’re reading this)
Before I dive straight into the reviewing, I kinda want to summarize the entire series before I do anything else: Great Concepts, Amazing Execution, but Poor Design.
Besides the above sounding like a really shitty subreddit
/r/ATBGE, this adjective really reflects this game as a whole. I suppose I should get started
WARNING: THIS SERIES IS EXTREMELY HARD TO REVIEW WITHOUT SPOILING, AS ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS PAST THE FIRST TITLE IS SPOILERY REGARDLESS. AS SUCH THIS REVIEW WILL NOT HESITATE TO DESCRIBE THE EVENTS IN EACH TITLE IN DETAIL SO PLEASE BE WARNED!!!
Summary: The game revolves around Niimi Kakeru, a boy who seems to have a normal life and normal friends. A particular anime series became popular recently involving the Magatsu who is a Snake God, and such a popularity resulted in various events in the real world celebrating such success. It’s just that on this particular day an earthquake shakes the city disrupting the entire event, and this is the time when Kakeru will be thrown into the midst of chaos and suffering, which will require the strongest of willpower to overcome.
Story Length: Long (~ 30 hours)
Comments: The fact that the game is comprised up of 4 “standalone” (in quotations because it’s questionable) titles makes this a very long game. Though this shouldn’t really be of surprise considering I literally reviewed the first three titles (albeit with the second and third ones briefly).
