    The Nonary Games is a fantastic package that has two of the best adventure games of all time in a single package with worthy enhancements to 999 which remains one of my favourite games of all time.

    I’ll stop here and simply recommend The Nonary Games wholeheartedly.

    More of the same from Spike-Chunsoft, which is not a bad thing at all. The games are still engaging, fun, and in the case of Virtue’s Last Reward, have some of the most challenging puzzles in the visual novel genre. Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is an above-average compilation that offers just enough changes to make it a good purchase for both newcomers to the series and franchise veterans, although, as always with this genre, those looking for action had best look elsewhere.

    Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is as close to the perfect package as is currently available for folks looking to jump into the Zero Escape world. The only thing that would make it better is if it somehow included Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma to complete the set. Even so, the two included games offer players over twenty hours of gameplay as they work through dozens of distinct endings. The lack of tweaks to Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward may seem strange in comparison, even though that title didn’t need much reworking to begin with. In either case, there’s no doubt that Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is a set of visual novels that are both worth a look.

    If you can handle overwrought voice acting, some nasty characters, and thin writing, you’ll enjoy the story. For fans of puzzles, thankfully there is a fast skip button that allows you to skip the overly talky bits and get to the real shining star in Zero Escape: The Nonary Games.

    The Zero Escape series as a whole has been fantastic, but the older games (999 especially) have been somewhat harder to find recently. AndThe Zero Escape series as a whole has been fantastic, but the older games (999 especially) have been somewhat harder to find recently. And while the games can be played individually, you'll be missing elements of the plot to each of the games if you don't play through from the beginning.

    A must buy if you thought Primer had a plot that was too straightforward.

    To those who love mystery/puzzle games I think this is the main attraction for Zero Escape
    It's kinda like Danganronpa but it tells more of a mature, and dark story with lots of plot twists :D

    This bundles two games from the three volumes and you're getting a really great deal out of this.
    There is VA for the two of them so you wont need to worry yourself reading too much of the VN

    The stories told from these two games are a masterpiece and you probably wont be forgetting it for a while.... The characters too each have their own unique side stories to them as well

    Look I'm probably not giving this game justice but all I want to say is if you want a REALLY good VN, this is a must buy for the reasons stated above; You wont regret it :D

    Get the third game if you liked these two! Hopefully there might be a bundle sale for all three in the future?
