    While the Goddesses were out responding to a distress call from the faraway PC Continent, Nepgear and the other Candidates were sent to investigate an abandoned laboratory.

    It was there that they found the "Ashen Goddess," who trapped them in a deep sleep capsule. By the time they awoke, 2 years had already passed.

    The latest smartphone, the "rPhone," dominates the market.

    Neptune has been missing since her mission to the PC Continent, and in the absence of its Goddess and Candidate, Planeptune was ravaged by a strange new phenomenon, the Trendi Outbreaks.

    Suddenly finding herself robbed of home and family, Nepgear falls into a deep depression.

    This is a story about finding hope in the midst of despair, and the rebirth of a Goddess in the wake of destruction.

    Although the shift to a more action-oriented combat system initially made me hesitant, I ended up loving every second of Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters once it all clicked. Plus, the meta-humour and lovely cast of characters are more delightful than ever.

    Sisters VS Sisters is in many ways a return to form in everything that matters to it. The satire is sharp and relevant. The characters are entertaining and endearing, and despite the sheer number of Neptunia games that have been released by now, Sisters VS Sisters finds a way to meaningfully contribute to and build on what has come before.

    If you’ve been waning on the Neptunia series recently, this one is worth picking up. While it doesn’t necessarily redefine the series as we know it, its distinct strengths can be used as a building block for future games to flourish consistently.

    Confusing for newbies, Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters hooks all genre fans. While it seems dated in many ways, it touches on red-hot topics surrounding influencers and AI, as well as media addiction. For this reason, a recommendation to play at least a little while.

    Neptunia: Sisters Vs Sisters has wonderful combat and endearing characters, but a lack of difficulty and dodgy dungeons prevent it from being truly great.

    Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters has some fun ideas and absolutely beautiful visuals, but with an incredibly flawed combat system that fails to learn from its predecessors, we're ultimately left with another clunky spinoff that fails to move the needle for the franchise. There's so much room for exploring new, exciting, and impactful ideas in the world of Neptunia, but Neptunia: Sisters VS Sisters is adamant in taking another step sideways rather than pushing the series forward.

    I 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.

    The story is however a bit short and a serious gameplay balancing issue is present. There is also no Kurome (non impacting factor)

    Good story
    Lots of hats

    Heavily recycled content
    Extremely repetitive voice lines in dungeons
    Awful side quests that rely heavily on RNG
    Some characters have awful skill sets
    Frame rate locked at 30FPS
    Graphical glitches and rendering issues
    Stuttering gameplay in places
    Awful combat system
    Unable to dodge/block during a combo/special
    Limited disc crafting system
    Where are all the costumes?

    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.

    My god even by 90s standards this game wouldve been trash. Constant stuttering and boring combat. The code for this game in Unity is utterMy 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.

    As for the ONE 10 rating, look at the username. Clearly a paid / fake review made specifically just to have a green vote. Forget textures that look 30 years old
    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
