Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1’s degree of fan service means it probably won’t resonate with anyone unwilling to step outside their comfort zone, but beyond that entry barrier lies a laboriously crafted JRPG with tangible meaning behind its story and worthwhile commentary on the video game industry.

If you are looking for the best version of the first Hyperdimension Neptunia, but this time in a much more obtainable format, you should definitely considering picking it up, even though I do wish more work had gone into the port including the QA.

Яркий девичник Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 приглянется немногим: новинка требует определенных познаний в теме, без которых здесь будет скучновато. Впрочем, несмотря на досадные оплошности по части RPG, забавный и чуть ветвистый сценарий способен удержать у экранов тех, кто не прочь посмеяться над бородатыми штампами JRPG, видеоигр и массовой культуры в целом.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1's comedic narration isn't perfect, yet it's a nice change from all those RPGs that attempt being "serious" only to end up being generic. The visuals, which consist of extremely cute teenagers, half-naked goddesses, busty ninjas, gothic lolitas, and other anime-inspired stuff, will put off some people, but will please the rest with how good all these look. Finally, underneath this repetitive hunt for levels and crafting materials, lies something very entertaining that has a nice pick-and-play simplicity and fast pace. It's not the best of the genre, it's not for everyone, but it's also a unique and really fun game.

I know I ended this review on a series of down points, but that’s really not my intent. I think there is a nugget of a great game just waiting to be mined out of Neptunia. However, the platform it came from is a bit incompatible to the platform that it’s on now. I applaud the publisher though for bringing it to the PC at all though. Even if the game isn’t perfect, it’s still a unique experience, just for the story alone, and should be checked out. Remember to look for guides for specific items that you’ll need to craft with, and you should be set.

Steam is looking to have a promising future for fans of Japanese role-playing games, and while Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 might not be the best of the bunch that people were hoping to see arrive on the platform, the game is still a good, light-hearted and comical RPG that does a good job of honouring and having fun in regards to the topic of video games, while also being given a wonderful performance boost from PC hardware.

At $33 on Steam, this game isn’t doing itself any favors. It’s competent, though unambitious, JRPG, surrounded by many quality games at lower prices. Shadowrun, for example, is half the price on Steam, while classics like Planescape: Torment are available for only $10 on Good Old Games. The market for JRPGs is primarily on console, so at this price, it’s difficult to imagine that anyone will bite, except for die hard JRPG fans that, for bizarre reasons, refuse to play on consoles anymore and so might agree to this price out of sheer desperation. If that’s you, then you’ve just found another JRPG to enjoy on your PC, just don’t expect it to push your machine to its performance limits at that price, or even necessarily be a gaming classic.
