Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Junpei, a fairly normal college student finds himself involved in a deadly conspiracy that he couldn't have possibly imagined. He awakes aboard an old passenger ferry, dazed and confused he stumbles around the room trying to reclaim his memories. First thing he noticed was a number roughly drawn on the cabin's door… A bright red number 5. Junpei's memory then returned and he remembered what happened right before becoming unconscious! A mysterious person with a gas mask crossed his mind. He remembered the haunting words he spoke, "I'm gonna make you play the game… the 'Nonary Game'… the game of life or death". "We've decided to call 999 an 'Adventure' game," say Ben Bateman, Localization Editor, Aksys Games, "but I don't really feel that's entirely accurate. 999 is a game that simulates life, or at least it would if your life was about being trapped on a sinking ship and forced to complete a series of incomprehensible puzzles before your practically inevitable death. It is about relationships, and how they will ultimately kill you. There is also some blood, and an ax, so if you've always wanted some blood and an ax in your life, there you go. But what really brings 999 to life are the people who inhabit it. You will learn to care for them; to feel as though you are there and they are your friends, and then they will die because you made the wrong choices. Just like in real life."

5.0 out of 5 stars What a trip! Nov. 29 2010
By Junpei
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   

I've dabbled in visual novel games a little (Fate/Stay Night being pretty much the only one) and have been an Adventure game fan since the old LucasArts games back in the 90s.
One of my favourite series of all time is Phoenix Wright. But, I haven't played a game where the story and dialogue are as top-notch as they are here.

999 has been a wonderful surprise for the DS. Extremely dark (though not without some good humour that made me laugh outloud at points), with great writing in both dialogue and prose. Swearing was used very effectively to help emphasis the emergency of the situation. This is not a game for kids. Even though the game doesn't show much beyond a few bucketfulls of blood, the graphics descriptions of some of the gorier scenes will make you cringe, even if you have no issue with movie violence.

Also, the game features 16 puzzle "rooms" not unlike flash games like "The Crimson Room". These don't drag on long and all and the solutions aren't crazy hard without being stupidly easy. You'll complete anywhere from 6-9 (roughly) of these puzzles per-playthrough.

With 6 endings and one of these 6 endings needing to be found to unlock the "True Ending", there's quite of bit of replay value. And trust me, until you've seen those two endings, you won't want to put the game down. The characters, while at the beginning seem like stereo-typical anime fare, quickly become more and more enthralling as you talk to them amongst the various routes you can take throughout the game. I'm usually the type of person who can see plot twists coming a mile awhile, but I was constantly one-upped by the excellent plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star game...1 star packaging Oct. 31 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this game is fantastic...pure and simple...
here is the problem....
what is shown here is NOT what is advertised to purchase...what is shown here is the new cover, that also has some bonus content...but when you order it, you get the old/original cover that doesn't have the new content....if you already own the original version (I do)...don't order from here, unless Amazon fixes this problem/issue!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely enthralling. Feb. 2 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a perfect blend of entertaining puzzles, and superbly-written novel.

Instead of detailing the game's pros and cons, I'll talk a little bit about my experience playing it. There's not much to tell, actually; I simply didn't come out of my room for an entire weekend. The story reads as though Michael Crichton were responsible for the movie Saw, laced with an extra dash of mind****ing for good measure, and I found it compelling enough to purposely deprive myself of sleep -- by setting my alarm -- just so I could wake up early and play the game some more after being up half the night already.

This game's story made me think. Not because it was a necessity per se, but because I couldn't help it. Anybody who likes to read books, or who likes to do puzzles, should have bought this game yesterday. If you like intriguing and creepy versions of both, in game form, simultaneously, then you'll probably wind up being as bat**** enthusiastic as yours truly.

My highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars You need to experience it to believe it Sept. 11 2014
Verified Purchase
Possibly the most immersive and clever plot I've ever experienced in my life. This is coming from a gamer who has played hundreds of RPGs.

A must-play if you're over 18, gamer or non-gamer.

This game so far has been extremely entertaining. The puzzle-solving is creatively planned and challenging, and the storyline is so absorbing that I can officially consider myself hooked.

I'd suggest looking up the specific sequence of choices before you play so you don't end up with the same ending twice. The true ending is mind blowing.

That is a game that will make your head hurt. The story is pretty interesting and the characters are lively. Great puzzles that put Prof. Layton to shame.

If u like me enjoyed hotel dusk, this is a must play. Mostly text, but a fun story. Like a PG 13 version of Saw.
