I've been a nep fan since the original PS3 game and unfortunately all the spin-offs, Yes Nep SvS is a spin off suffers from many different problems and obviously a lack of funding which is a shame since Nepgear is my favorite Goddess Candidate.
Storywise, that is actually fine and falls within the main canon storyline with the typical plot twists and 4th wall breaking you can expect from the series, that is basically the only really good aspects of the game as the rest fall apart very quickly.
Gameplay wise, its a mess. IF went with action style combat and it doesn't work, its buggy and atrocious in places with enemies either being severely overpowered, or die in one hit. Combat also suffers from a major under sight and that is it is impossible to dodge or block during any combo or special attacks, whilst the enemies can attack you through these attacks and the best way forward is to abuse the chain skill to change to a different character which briefly stuns your target, so the the entire flow of battle is spam attacks > change character > spam > change character, even simple things like healing is a mess too.
Sound is heavily recycled, along with all previous assets with very little new content actually added, another huge annoyance is the fact your party is extremely vocal, every few seconds they are speaking about various things and repeat constantly, it gets so old and annoying that in dungeons you have to actually mute the speech because constant every 2 - 3 seconds the same voice lines repeating over and over.
Unforgivable is the side quests, many of these are the typical fetch quests, kill X monster or talk to someone in a dungeon, the two former are a real problem especially with fetch quests because these entail you running around dungeons breaking boxes to get items in them, its entirely random and later on as the items increase it gets harder and harder to find specific items because of the random loot you can find, so you are forced to reload a dungeon, run around breaking boxes..don't find anything, teleport out of the dungeon and repeat....repeat....repeat...until you either give up or actually find what you are looking for.
Also, another issue in this action based RPG is that not all characters are actually useful, in fact some characters like Neptune don't even appear until mid-game and her skill set is awful, whilst other characters like Noire can absolutely smash enemies in seconds.
The crafting system is also extremely weak, with limited combinations and most are useless. At first glance, the power cancel/rush cancel abilities sounded like you could actually cancel your combos if you needed to dodge/block an attack and unfortunately they don't meaning any time a boss or enemy attacks you cannot defend yourself.
Overall, Neptunia: Sister vs Sister is a huge disappointment and once again serves that the fans are being unfairly treated to spin-off games instead of funding a proper mainline game Neptune deserves. This game would have been far better suited to the classic turn based combat instead of a poor and buggy action based combat, so much so it probably would have saved the game entirely.… Expand
Feb 3, 2023My god even by 90s standards this game wouldve been trash. Constant stuttering and boring combat. The code for this game in Unity is utter spaghetti. And the devs not knowing unity at all is clearly showing.

Forget the horrid combat that even the first ever neptunia did better in. The game isn't even playable, all because these clown devs don’t understand unity
This game should’ve been 120 fps-240 on PS5, its demand is so pathetically low. Instead its barely 30 and stutters and freezes every time something dies. Do not enable this company for a single cent. Absolutely shameful release on something that could’ve been good. Devs need to at LEAST hold the game up to atellier ryza 2 standards, at minimum, when it comes to making old textures look good AND run good. If this came out in the 90s i would STILL give it a 0. Its horrible… Expand
Feb 6, 2023As a huge Neptunia fan that ownes all their games and all remakes, this is disappointing, and i feel truly scammed at 70$ calling this a PS5 game is a genuine scam, and IF has lost a Fan i will not buy games like this from them again at full price.

all side quests are rng, get number of items or kill number of enemies, that spawn randomly these usually popup after the dungeon so you have to go back.
Game has 4 dungeon design that rotate an change very slightly, they look randomly generated..
then there is a random large city with nothing in it, for no reason.. feels like they just slapped together leftover assets that don't fit together and called it a day.
Runs at 30 fps on ps5 with serious stutter while looking like a vita title with a fan made texture pack, Sony needs to be better at what companies can call a ps5 title as this does nothing that a ps3 cant do, and definitely nothing that is unique the ps5 has to offer.
game took me 40h to platinum and i was sitting in the menu 20h waiting for disc creation to complete as it took 10 min each time so its around 20h with post game.. if you are a Neptunia fan buy at 20$ and it's meh but ok but at 70$ NO! insulting to fans.… Expand

Feb 1, 2023I cannot overstate how bland I found Neptunia: Sisters vs. Sisters to be, I was actually pretty surprised by how bored I found myself hour after hour. I can safely say that you’d be fine avoiding this one, and if you’re a fan of the series, you’d probably still do well to steer clear of this entry.
Jan 24, 2023Neptunia Sisters vs. Sisters channels the same cheeky humor and simplistic gameplay that fans have grown to expect. At the same time, some of the creative choices implemented here don't mesh well enough to make a complete concept. It all works and has its own kind of fun, but the game misses out on a more cohesive product that a more broad RPG fan base might have wanted to try.
Jan 24, 2023Neptunia: Sisters Vs Sisters has wonderful combat and endearing characters, but a lack of difficulty and dodgy dungeons prevent it from being truly great.
