    Winning even as one loses is nothing new in gaming-at least, not in how I play-and the way Zettai Hero Project: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman implements it means that nothing the player does, no matter how foolish, is a waste. That implemention isn't exactly groundbreaking (while the game makes grinding for levels easier, it doesn't make it more palatable) but it does force players to think about failure in a slightly new way.

Great humor, smooth gameplay, lots of things to customize, and doesn't take itself too seriously. If you think "Prinny dood!!" is an awesome thing to shout, then this game is for you. Full Review »

Before you click back on your browser though, know that this isn't a bad thing. Items in the game are easy to come by and really aren't that great anyways. Dying though increased your max level and helps you gain skills and powers. So in a way, dying = surviving...in some odd way. When you die, or complete a level, all the levels you accumulated on your current romp through the dungeon level will increase your overall level and your strength and other stats increase. The basic gameplay is dungeon crawling with similarities to Shiren the Wandered and the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series. Just know that every move moves everyone else in the dungeon. It's turn based, but pretty fast turned based.

    If challenge scares you, you might shy away from the title, but you'd be missing a pretty good romp through a very good game.

NiS obviously put a lot of effort into this title, and it definitely shows thanks to the plentiful options for customization. Full Review »
