    Alone in the Vita library, it's a casual game that has a bit of depth to it, and it's a Japanese game that doesn't have all kinds of weird sexual issues (though, obviously, it's not without them entirely, as evidenced by the fact you can shoot upskirt camera shots during concerts). It's a light, breezy game that's made for a light, breezy time of year, and it's well worth an investment.

    Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection is an attempt to blend the idol management sim with the crazy universe of Hyperdimention Neptunia, and it largely works.

    Unexpectedly challenging and fun, Producing Perfection is an excellent idol simulator that's only held back by its limited amount of content and repetitious gameplay.

    To get the most out of the experience, Producing Perfection practically mandates that its players have some kind of working knowledge of the Hyperdimension world to enjoy its trappings. If players are in that category, then perhaps there’s enough here to sustain interest, as the excessive dialogue is really only entertaining for those who know the characters and established lore well.

    Although the gameplay is sometimes too light for its own good, the relaxing nature of the experience, and the likable cast of idols makes the experience worth trying to some degree. Producing Perfection is such a unique title however, that most gamers will probably want to pass over this experience to something with a little more substance.

    It’s so weird and ephemeral that when I got the credits, I wasn’t sure if the game was finished or about to begin. Sadly, that tells you a lot about the actual content. When it was all over, I was unsure if I had somehow missed the “game” part and just watched the cut scenes.

    The name Producing Perfection has to be a cruel joke; the game “produces” nothing of the sort.

You guide the CPUs along their journey to become J-Pop idols and beat MOB48 (as in AKB48, the current ruler in the IRL idol wars) to get the hearts of their citizens back. It's relatively simple, each day you can do one thing: have lessons so your chosen characters become better performers, hold events like TV appearances and recordings, perform at a concert, or rest and talk to other characters/the CPU you chose to produce. Most of the game is watching scenes play out and occasionally choosing an action to hopefully make the situation better.

    There are only 5 perform-able songs in the game, but concerts are infrequent and you won't be thinking much about the music to begin with, so I don't consider it much of a negative point. This game is about managing an idol, it's not a rhythm game so don't go into it expecting that.

    If you like witty VN's, idols, management, and interacting with cute 2D girls, I recommend this game.

    The game is good, but very short. I've finished the story 2 times in one day already.

    At least the game seems to run well, but with a game

    At least the game seems to run well, but with a game like this it can sometimes be hard to tell. Besides, I suppose the PS3 games didn't run perfectly either. That said if you are a fan of the series, you will probably like the game.

    It's a pity though that the game is more expensive than most Vita games and much shorter than you would typically expect of a Neptunia game.

    I really like the Neptunia series but this has to be the worst game that I ever played in my entire life. It isn't even a game, it's just a VNI really like the Neptunia series but this has to be the worst game that I ever played in my entire life. It isn't even a game, it's just a VN but without the interesting story. The plot is paper thin, the "antagonists" never appear in the game after their introduction in the beginning, the conversations feel out of place and the idol management is simply boring.
    Also there are only 5 songs which is a joke for a supposed idol management sim and the game assets are mostly recycled from Neptunia Victory. This is a 5$ mobile game disguised as a full price vita game. It's disappointing to see the Neptunia franchise sink so low.

    This game promises to be an "idol sim" but they spit you in the face with a terrible visual novel-like game.
