HyperDimension Neptunia Re:Birth1 is a remake of the PS3 Version called HyperDimension Mk1.
The story is set in a land called Gamindustri where 4 Goddesses rule over the four lands known as Lowee, Lastation, Planeptune and Leanbox. Over the years the Goddesses have been battling in a 400 year war known as the Console War ( you probably know where this is heading by now lol). During the Last war they have decided to team up and gang up on the Neptune or Lady Purple Heart as her Goddess name who rules over Planeptune. After a long fierce battle Neptune is finally outnumbered and is knocked unconscious and falls from the air from Celestia the Land where the Goddesses Battle Area.
Later on she awakens and is found by a girl known as Compa (our first company mascot player for Compile Heart) who brings her back to hear apartment to aid her wombs. As the Story progresses Neptune and Compa travel to different dungeons and lands while meeting new allies and familiar faces of the other Goddesses
but due to Neptune’s Amnesia they dont have any reason to fight her any more and instead assist her on her Journey to stop the Main Villain Arfoire who tries to take over the land by Copying the Goddess power to help her aids.
The game play is a semi turn based style with the freedom to move around in a small area to target further back enemies in battle which gives you you freedom to aim your weapon to hit as much enemies as you can at once.
Like other JRPG’s its a Dynamic system which enemies appear on screen where you attack them to initiate battle mode, with a nice unique combo system of Power, Gaurd Break and Rush attacks with a following up Ex attacks and Ex Finishers when the Ex Gauge fills up to a certain number.
Another unique feature to this game is the Remake system on the world map where players can edit dungeons by adding options to make harder enemies appear and adding new items drop to even even adding new items, accessories, weapons to your shop menu.
Lilly Rank system is another battle feature where you can pair up characters to create assist attacks or unique Ex Skills between the two known as HyperDimension Ex skills only between the goddesses only.
The First game play might need some grinding for some bosses unless that’s what most people do in any game but it has lots of fun in it and will need to a NewGame+ or two to unlock everything in it where you can keep your levels and your previous Memory which is gathered through bosses for unlocking stuff in the remake system.
This game was alot of fun to me and was really enjoyable to play.
If your a hardcore gamer and know your JRPG Companies you will get the reference for the playable characters names. It was definitely a new gem to my collection.
