Many people will be up all night playing Ninety -Nine Nights. Tons of fun batttling whole armies with spells and slash!
Anyone that says this game is just like Dynasty Warriors is out of their mind. Trust me...THIS IS NOT LIKE DYNASTY WARRIORS!! I despised Dynasty Warriors....to me it's one of the worst games ever made. Ninety-Nine Nights is a highly enjoyable game. I love it! I've had alot of fun with this game. You have quite a few different characters and you will play through the story from each of their different perspectives one character at a time. You can finish one character and then go to the next one or you can simultaneously play any character's story campaign as long as you've unlocked that character. You will fight hordes and hordes of enemies. Some will be close range, some will be archers. The magical abilities, spells, and combat techniques are all very enjoyable. Superb graphics. There's some very unique spells and skills that I've never seen in any game before........one such is a water-type spell where you cast waves of water upon your opponents and that is very cool to see a wave wash over your enemies. It is by no means just button mashing hack and slash. You will have to use your skills, you will have to dodge, run, fly, and jump and block. Each character has a learning curve because their skills and manuevers are so different and they have different weapon types. Some are better up close in melee battle.....some do better with projectile weaponry. There's no online play so that's one downside. I'm trying to think of some other negatives but nothing really comes to mind. You get to build your skills and gain experience levels. There's a multitude of different weapons and items you can equip to enhance your abilities and skills. Ok, here's one negative that's kind of frustrating. You cannot save mid-level. If you die in the middle of the level, it's all the way back to the beginning and that makes it very frustrating at times. I know I yelled at my TV more than a few times playing this game. I don't know why in this day and age anyone makes games where you can't save anywhere. It does make it more of a challenge so even if (and I did alot) you have to go back and replay levels to build your skills, you need to make sure your experience and skill level is high enough to beat the next level or you may get to the very end and get killed and it's all the way back. All in all, a very fun game. If you like fantasy, spells, elemental magic, and batlling armies of enemies all on screen at once then you'll like this. Yes, it's quite amazing to run into a whole army of enemies, goblins and stuff and just beat the crap out of them all in beautiful graphic form. Check it out for sure.
