    In short, NEO The World Ends With You is massive. It’s a grand, modern epic with impeccable writing and almost as impeccable style that’s got as much heart as it does twists and turns in the plot. This is easily one of the year’s finest RPGs.

    NEO: The World Ends With You is brimming with excitement. The combat is so good, and the various mechanics all work well together. The soundtrack is superb as well, with visuals that never grow old.

    NEO: The World Ends With You retains the freshness, uniqueness and stylish nature of the original game, but at the same time reinvents itself without forgetting the complexity and tons of content usually found in the JRPG genre. We're once again before a true gem.

    NEO: The World Ends With You is the sequel we’ve been waiting for. While its new cast of characters have a lofty legacy to live up to, they manage to cement themselves as equally memorable even if their own journey begins to intersect with one we know so well. Combat falls victim to repetition, yet the ideas that surround it are substantial enough that such flaws are easy to forgive. If you’re after a vast JRPG adventure, it’s time to surrender yourself to the underground and never look back. TWEWY is back, and I hope it’s here to stay.

    A banger of a sequel that slightly fumbles the last verse. That said, it’s still a full-on earworm that’s getting heavy rotation on our Summer In Shibuya playlist. [Issue#5, p.72]

    Fourteen years ago, The World Ends With You stood out for its great art direction, original battle system and a great and unexpected story. Today the sequel improves the technical aspect, but the battle system is simpler, the narrative twists are no longer unexpected and the characters are not too deep. It's great to be back in Shibuya, just don't expect something as surprising and fresh as the first game.

    NEO: The World Ends With You gives players a tremendous soundtrack and a ton of content, and once the combat clicks, it's a genuinely good time. However, that comes with the caveat that players have to invest roughly 10 hours before the game really starts to be fun, and then they still have to deal with its repetitiveness. So as long as fans can put up with those issues, they will get a lot of game time out of NEO: The World Ends With You.

    Waited 13 years for this and never thought I’d see the day. Long time fan of the series here so maybe my review is a little biased, but I willWaited 13 years for this and never thought I’d see the day. Long time fan of the series here so maybe my review is a little biased, but I will say I was kind of let down by KH3 after waiting as long as we all did for that.. so just because I’m a long time fan doesn’t mean my standards are easily met with long running series like these with huge gaps in between releases. With that being said, they really came correct when it comes to NEO. I was hooked with the gameplay from start to finish and could put the controller down. The soundtrack is amazing (as I at the very least expected) and the story, gameplay, and character development all were outstanding as well. I finished the game with 44% completion at around 40 hours of gameplay and I don’t plan to quit until I get the 100% and platinum for this one. Overall absolutely amazing game in every way. Great fan service and I can only hope they make another but won’t hold my breath with as long as this one took to come out lol. Go pick up a copy! You won’t be disappointed! And if you’re new to the series you can watch the anime that goes over the story of the first game. Good watch and it’s only about 12 episodes :) Expand

    Overall a great game. It features a fantastic story, great and loveable characters and like in the first game, the music is just superb. TheOverall a great game. It features a fantastic story, great and loveable characters and like in the first game, the music is just superb. The biggest downside is that the game is hard on the border of being too long. A lot of content is generally a good thing, but there it feels like that especially in the last hours everything is longer that it needs to be. Especially the combat system gets tiring towards the end. But still in the end NEO: The World Ends With You is a worthy sequel that was definitely worth the wait. Expand
