The World Begins With You

The good:

-The art style is very unique, as it is actually inspired by the art style used by many people in Shibuya, Japan, which is where the game takes place.
-Very extensive story line that will keep you playing until the very end, and even afterwards.
-Interesting battle system, utilizes the top and bottom screen of the DS.
-Long post-game, able to play each chapter of the game over again.
-Characters are very well developed, each has their own unique personality.
-Great Soundtrack, uses real life popular J-Pop music, lets you switch between songs whenever you want in game on the cell phone menu.

The bad:

-Same couple songs play in the background over and over again, becomes a bit annoying and repetitive.
-Not enough voice acting, characters would say phrases over and over again and it would become repetitive.
-Battle Style is very hard to get used to at first and hard to control, along with the pins you have and your attacks.

Summary:

The World Ends With You is a ground-breaking title that was created by Square Enix, the creator of the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts series. Since this game was under the same developer as Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts, two extremely successful titles, The World Ends With You had a lot to live up to. Luckily for Square Enix, it lived up to these two series just fine, and turned out to be an amazing game.

Game play: 9/10
This game takes on a very unique approach to battles and controls. Prior to battles, the player must select certain attacks that they want to be able to use in battles. ...

What's all the fuss about?

Summary:

It seems that Square-Enix are so popular, that any game they announce will garner more attention than there is for the amount of IQ points Einstein possesses, times a hundred thousand, and it was best shown with this game. Among release, I decided to go out and buy this, however, it seemed that there were no copies about twenty minutes after the stores opened (which was when I went to the first game store). After a few weeks of dealing with this, I just went "screw this" and borrowed my friend's copy. The words he spoke upon me borrowing this echoed throughout my head - "it's not all that g...

The World Doesn't Always End With You

Summary:

Opening Thoughts

This game isn't bad, nor is it as great as everyone makes it out to be. The game starts out very unique, and stays that way throughout the game, but I don't know how good of a thing that is. Basically, due to the way the games controls are, you'd have to be very good at multitasking to get used to this thing straight off. It took me awhile to get used to it, just because of how unique of a game it is. This is the first game I've ever played on the DS that use both screens resourcefully at the same time! It's a difficult challenge, but it's interesting and intriguing and on...

It's Not The End Of The World

Summary:



The World Ends With You is a strange little game even before you start playing. It's rare that a game that is the first in its series to garner so much hype and praise that this game has achieved. Then again, Square Enix are the ones behind it, and considering that the game has quite a resemblance to their other high profile series then it shouldn't be so surprising. The question comes down to whether the game is really deserving of all that praise though.

The visuals are mostly on the good side, although there are a few issues that don't come across as well. The art style is very nice, with...

The Only Thing Better Than This Is Sliced Bread.

The good:

~Unique battle system, utilizing both of the DS's screens, especially the Touch Screen.
~Engaging storyline ensures that there is never a dull moment.
~Keeping modesty in a great game: the creators make spiffy effects when they're needed, and leave off when they aren't.
~Exceptional audio, featuring J-Pop music and keeping with the setting of modern-day Shibuya.
~A mini-game is added, which lets you play with other people, even if they don't own the game themselves.
~Filling out charts, finding pins, and generally maxing out your stats causes the replay value of this game to skyrocket.
~The art is amazing, with backdrops of actual icons of Shibuya and well-drawn characters.
~Cut scenes are extremely smooth, and add just the right amount of tension to certain scenes.

The bad:

~The pin system is hard to use at times, as the game is very specific about what it wants you to do to activate them.
~More voice acting might have added more "wow" factor.

Summary:

Square Enix, well-known for their wildly successful Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts franchises, was in need of a fresh idea. Their two series were going wonderfully, but many gamers were starting to feel that they'd seen it all before. Enter The World Ends With You, a completely perfect game, and - for once - completely original.

The game starts with a mystery right off the bat, as the protagonist, Neku, wakes up in Shibuya, Tokyo, with no idea of who he was or how he got there. While looking around the unfamiliar area, he receives a text message, warning him that if he didn't follow the...

"The World Ends With You"; Also known as "An Exercise in Tedium".

Summary:

Reviewing "TWEWY" is as about as appealing as attempting to eat fish and chips in the middle of a flock of seagulls, as one word said against this supposedly ground-breaking game is going to send the seething, feathered masses of the internet into a frenzy of eyeball-pecking and spontaneous bowel movements. Unfortunately, in order to provide a truthful review I'm going to have to mention the game is an over-hyped and under-developed mess eventually, so I suppose I may as well get my raincoat on right from the start.

TWEWY gets off to a great start with the main character, a wafer-thin social...
