Project X Zone… A clash of confused heros and heroines running through time, space, and even cyberspace! All of your favorite characters and mine from throughout gaming history…and even a few that are not (Ulala from Space Channel 5). It combines them with a storyline adds a small cast of original characters unique to the game and away you go!
Storyline: The storyline starts simply enough the main girl is a cheer leading, rich, high-school girl with a powerful family treasure. You team up with the craziest, cutest, most dangerous heros and some villains to save everyone!!
Character Development: The development throughout this game like many others is more about relationships. Even with unlikely alliances and bring attacks to match! My favorite team happens to be Hsien-Ko and Frank West! Sure I love Dante but the combination and hilarity of their joined attack just makes me laugh. I’ll even put Ryu and Ken with Neneko/Neito as my second favorite combination. Granted I have a way I like to set most of my teams but I am not going to list them all here (unless you guys ask me for it…).
Battle System/Learning Curve: The battle system is what I like to refer to as a punching bag system. When attacked (this also goes for your enemies) you have three options no defense, counter, and defend (full/partial). Otherwise you (or your enemy just do what they can with the imposed time limit.
Graphics: The graphics are done in a masterful compilation to seamlessly include the diverse genres and ways the game would include. My favorite pairing and attack that is a perfect example for this is Hsien-Ko and Frank West’s Co-Op finisher attack. Utilizing the weapons and the quirks of both fighters during the animated sequence.
Playtime/Replayability: Honestly, I have not beat this game yet due to my incurable condition I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with it. It’s called NGS better known as New Game Syndrome. Although even with that this game never gets old sure the battles can be lengthy but I never get tired of that kick as clashing chess board. (and for some reason typing that I think of the wizard’s chess game from Harry Potter).
All in all its a wonderful game and I know I’ll have my hands on that when I take my long ride on the way back to the states!! Now I went back and checked this post and apparently the work that I thought had been posted …was indeed not. A goose on my part. I apologize. So I will have another post addressing this and thanks for your time and patience… Comments are always welcome and now following this apology is a very important message!
February 16, 2016 is the proposed date of release for Project X Zone 2 for the US!
Now I’m excited to come down with yet another case of NGS!! Happy Gaming! Hatter OUT!
