    Megadimension Neptunia VIIR is an odd duck, being sold heavily on the VR features, even though they are so overtly tacked-on, but whatever the development story behind that, Compile Heart has gone back and substantially improved the gameplay engine, to the point that this is genuinely one of the better JRPGs out there. Making it all the more pity that a lot of people won’t see past the low budget these games are made on, and their love of underwear.

    Megadimension Neptunia VIIR is possibly the best game in the series. It may be a remake of a game that came out only a couple of years ago but there's enough here to delight both hardcore fans and newcomers alike.

    Don’t let the odd marketing fool you — there is far more to Megadimension Neptunia VIIR than just its VR. Between its quality of life updates, reworked mechanics and enhanced combat, this game represents the series at its best.
  4. 70
    Megadimension Neptunia VIIR offers the same story as the non-VR release from two years ago, but does make some gameplay changes on top of the addition of virtual reality segments. Only the biggest fans should double dip but this is still a good game for those who have yet to experience it.
  5. 70
    Megadimension Neptunia VIIR is recommended for fans of the original. But tacked-on VR scenes won’t do much for those looking for new and exciting experiences.

    I can’t imagine there’s a huge audience for this out there, but for those elusive few holdouts, now is as good a time as any to jump in.

    The weak plot, thin characters and lackadaisical approach to combat added up to a final product that was inconsequential best and a disrespectful waste of my time at worst. I can’t recommend it to JRPG fans, people who want more VR experiences, or really, to anyone at all.

    If you like the Neptunia games you will love this one. I have the Original Neptunia VII and now also VIIR and love both.

    In my opinion the best Neptunia game out there, there's something for returning fans as well as new ones here.

It contains the original story driven content with what appears to be slightly reworked UI in the battle system, and a new VR focus in the form of VR headset compatibility. There are new VR functions which allow for the player to get immersed in one-on-one social session with their favorite Neptunia Goddesses via a special menu accessed social space that is separate from the main game. This more personal aspect of the game isn't perfect, but it adds a depth of personality not seen from Neptunia's main characters previously. An experience that can thankfully be enjoyed with or without the VR headset. The downside if any is the in-your-face screen covering battle UI, and the sometimes awkward VR moments that border on creepy. Expand

    I have only recently been getting into this franchise on the Vita and was expecting them to really pick up their game for the new consoles.I have only recently been getting into this franchise on the Vita and was expecting them to really pick up their game for the new consoles. But No , its a bare bones, minimum effort throw together bore. A lot of the problem here were not so prevalent on the small screen, but on a TV with a new console, the long drawn out dialogue sections where you listen to picture, (not animated character, PICTURES) talk to each other about the long winded story are frustrating. The game play is just walking around a bland lifeless world occasionally getting into turn based style battle that are boring after ten minutes because there no strategy or evolution. The difficulty is,, get stuck!!! go back and replay the same missions over & over & over until your a high enough level. There no weapon or Armour that make a big difference to you damages.
    Perhaps worst off all...sigh.....They re released a better looking more streamlined version of the same game a few months later!!!wtf!!. Ripping of the people who bought this game and expecting another $80 for the new version. I am done with the franchise and its publisher for pulling this. Their games are not that much to miss anyway, but getting scammed stings for a while. Even worse is there is VR content in the new version and I have a PSVR, but there no way i am spend over $120 to get a bit of VR content in a game that is utter crap.
