The very first game of the Neptunia series on Steam! Yuss!

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birt1 or to shorten it, HNR1, is an anime-styled game leading you to the dimension of Gamindustri and the 4 nations Planeptune, Lowee, Lastation and Leanbox which are ruled by a goddess each.

Neptune, also known as Purple Heart, is the goddess of Planeptune (what a surprise)
Blanc, also known as White Heart, is the goddess of Lowee
Noire, also known as Black Heart, is the goddess of Lastation
Vert, also known as Green Heart, is the goddess of Leanbox

The 4 goddesses are fighting over "Shares", the definition for the belief of the citizens in Gamindustri to become the ultimate ruler of all Gamindustri.

During one of the fights between the 4 goddesses Neptune gets seriously wounded and falls from the sky to the ground that leads to her having amnesia.

Besides the story, the girls are really well-drawn and you will feel drawn to them *badum-dish*

Yes, Vert has nice boobies, but we will focus on them in another part of the Neptunia series!

So, have fun playing and fooling around!

Recommened to me by a friend, I initially didn't know what to think of this game but the more I played the more the characters, world, humour and its mechanics grew on me. It may be a budget JRPG but it's a well done one, though keep in mind the focus of this game is the characters and humour, if these don't resonate with you I can't recommend the game.

It's a turn based RPG so that may turn people off and there isn't much in the way of exploration but with its "remake" system finding items and crafting new features to add to the game can be quite addictive, it's a unique feature I'd like to see in more games. Hyperdimension Neptunia provides a fair challenge that should help keep your interest while playing.

As mentioned above it's the characters and humour the provides the greatest entertainment of this game, it's full video game parodies and jabs at video game culture but you can tell it's done by people that love gaming. The characters at the beginning can be overbearingly cute if you're not used to more Japanese flavoured games but each one of them has a unique personality and develops well through out the story. It would be generally shocking if you left this game without liking at least one of the characters.

It's definitely for the JRPG crowd but for those wanting to try something different this isn't a bad place to start.

There are three types of people who will enjoy this:

People who like typical anime humour and archetypes
People who like JRPGs and the above
People who like JRPGs but can ignore the above

Inside this game is a well thought out JRPG with lots of unique functions and ways to tackle enemies, while still remaining similar to the JRPG vein.

The story thus far (I haven't completely finished the game yet) Is engaging enough to want to continue (At least it gets taht way for me past chapter 2), the combat is challenging and the boss battles really seem like boss battles.

I'd recommend this to anyone who is both fans of JRPGs, love their waifus or can ignore some of the more niche comedy for a rich RPG experience.

The Neptunia Series, this is the greatest place to start the Neps if you ask me.
It's basically the remake of the very first game of the Neps, Hyperdimension Neptunia. But of course, more better and redefined to make it more enjoyable to the others.

This game is basically any other JRPGs out there, a turn based RPG that's easy to understand and learn. Nothing major and hard. All good and fun.
You have the cutesy characters, such as Neptune. The protagonist. You have the cliche antagonist, Arfoire. Etc.

The game has cute characters, cute voices, cliche stuff, comedy, cliche stuff, more comedy, PUDDING
and Neps, never can't forget about the neps ya know.

This game is enjoyable for everyone, even if you're not into anime. It's relaxing in my opinion, but of course. Preference matters. So if you don't like it, go pudding or go home.
But otherwise, i recommend you this game. Very much, just as much as probably Neptune would recommend. Same goes for the other series, now. What are you waiting for? Go Nep, or go even more Nep!

this is not Final Fantasy...

THIS IS HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!! *kicks dogoo down hole*

*cough* but seriously I have long played neptunia games on my vita and the originals when they were on ps3 and have only watched the short and sweet anime like 8 times.........THIS IS A GREAT SERIES FOR ANY OTAKU you will love the unique and hilarious characters and the comedy is brilliant! EVER HEARD OF FOURTH WALL BREAKING? get ready for lots of that in a funny way. The character designs are so kawaii and well done that i admittedly spend hours coming back to play neptunia games just to stare at the characters like some perverted SUPER OTAKU (neppers know what i mean) though the best game to do that in is Megadimension Neptunia VII just for the better graphics!!!!

but anyhoo yea its just a good little game but if your looking for some serious game to put your whole life into like a bethesda RPG yea....this isnt what your looking for.....you have to not think too hard about it to enjoy these games and the anime!

9.9999998/10 NEP-TACULAR!!!!

It's alright.

-Characters have a lot of personality and interact with each other well. They're all given a good background and have a lot of work put into them.
-A pretty creative and innovating story
-Fun battle system
-Accessible overworld
-Great enemy designs
-Multiple endings
-The writing

-Loads of unnecessary content
-Recycled areas
-Recycled enemies. A lot of them are just the same with a different colour palette.
-Unbalanced characters. Some of the characters just outshine others because of their ridiculously higher stats
-The battle system, while fun, can get too simplistic at times
-The writing

It's an okay game which has a lot of charm and character. I'd recommend you'd give it a shot.

Once upon a time somebody decided to combine a visual novel with a cliche JRPG. And so Hyperdimension Neptunia was born.

This game takes place in a world where the console wars are made real and each console is represented by a scantily clad anime Goddess because of course they are. The story follows a colourful(and all-female) cast of characters as they fight to save the world of Gamindustri(seriously?) from the forces of darkness. The setting is constantly used to poke fun at videogame and anime cliches, and the characters break through the fourth wall so many times they might as well install a revolving door. You can also expect quite a bit of fan service. The questionable attire of the Goddesses is just the tip of a kinky iceberg

On the gameplay side of things this is nothing special. You'll read through VN style story segments and then fight your way through dungeons full of treasures and palette swapped monsters. The flashy, over the top animations make combat fun but don't expect a design revolution here. It's your average JRPG on the gameplay front.

So this game is basically the videogame equivalent of fast food. Not the most classy thing on the menu but still pretty damn good.

So I got the gamepad working to the actual review. A great place to start the series is always at the beginning even if its in a different dimension. It is the grindest in the series so if you think its too grindy it only gets easier. Rivals megadimension and RB2 in terms of story. Great ♥♥♥ game give it a go you may end up getting sucked into the series.

This game can be enjoyable at points but the constant grinding for EXP just ruined this game. I hate having to see the same things over and over again while battling, the gameplay is lacking any form of entertainment all I do in battling is just continuously press the same buttons to attack sure the strategy part is fine but thats not saying much.

I just got past Chapter 2. Noire is the best girl. Try to play with Japanese audio, the English dub sounds dorky at least to me. You won't understand what they're saying outside of the main story (like battle dialogue and stuff) but that's very minor. If slice of life conversations rub you the wrong way (just like me) you're gonna have a bad time early game. This game is half visual novel, so it's thick with non-expositional dialogue. Even so, there are many funny moments and plenty of great characters so it's easy to look past it.

Some people say the game's hard; maybe if you're new to RPGs. I only died in horrible ways because I was very dumb, and if I ever raged playing this game it's because I forget to save for long periods of time and then proceed to do dumb stuff. The game only ever broke my heart when I built a plan (options that can alter how the game that you can build using materials dropped from enemies) to add stronger enemies in a dungeon, and ended up in the fisticuffs with a giant Brave Saga-inspired super fighting robot thing that took no damage. Kinda unfair, but it's an optional thing clearly meant for people who want more of a challenge.

The game's very good-looking, the attacks are very cool in that very characteristical anime way. The story is all over the place, but not without its compelling moments, and since it's meant to be a funny, satirical, light-hearted thing it really fits the game.

just finished it. man what a game.

engaging storyline, relatable characters, lots of side quests.

combat can get annoying at times, along with voiceovers inside and out of combat, 2 game crashes and for some reason the game liked turmimg my monitor off after 5-10 mins. but managed a workaround. (loaded a game on kong "endless dream" via FF and the game ran smooth. why no freaking clue lol.)

12/10 nep-neps
