The World Ends With You-Nintendo DS (2008)

Although the title of the game may seem “slightly clumsy”, The World Ends with You is no ordinary game at all. The world ends with you is a totally completely new RPG game that no-one has ever made before. As soon as you look at the box and see the square enix logo and the comic-styled spiky haired characters, you would be thinking,” I seen this all before”. You would be wrong. Very wrong indeed.

The battles and fights are very, very different to any other game. The touch screen sees you using the stylus to control Neku, the main character in the game. Neku attacks using pins, which create psyches which he uses to attack. On the top screen is your partner, who attacks using the D-Pad (or face buttons for left handed people). Initially this is very confusing, but as you progress through the game you skills increase and you will be able to control both the top screen and bottom screen characters. By using this unique battle system, it allows for some serious depth and some chaotic battles.

The storyline is very complex, but as you play through the game it all unravels and starts to make sense. The story goes a little like this-Neku, a typically surly teen wakes up in a district called Shibuya with amnesia. Shibuya is one of the trendiest districts in Tokyo, where fashion comes first. You find yourself in the middle of something called the game. To find out what the game is, well, play it yourself. By telling you what the game is ruins one of the great twists in the story, but I will tell you something about the game. It’s run by the composer and his army of reapers, who set tasks for you to complete. These tasks can be puzzling and sometimes hard, but failures in the tasks results in you being erased.

This has to be a must have game and is probably one of the best titles to get on DS. Its great dialogues and graphics will have you gazing into the screen wishing you were actually there. But one of the most absorbing things of all about the game is the amazing soundtracks. The songs are so catchy and you will be humming them to yourself wherever you go. Overall this game must be one of the finest games out there on DS and is definitely a must have for any gamer.

That's a pretty good first review there Sozetta, nice work.

I'd never heard of the game, until I asked you about it, but if I get the chance to try it I might, seems pretty good, even if, a little strange.

Hey Sozetta, just a thought, if you can fit it in, and especially on some more not well known titles you may review, if you could put up a pic of the box, I think that may help some people know what to look for in shops, if they are interested. I mean I was out today, and saw the box art for this game for the first time, and it looked really good, just a shame I had no money on me at the time. :p
