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."

Wow.

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.

This game is a masterpiece of storytelling. I've found three endings so far, each of them shocking, and there are still tons of mysteries yet to be revealed. How are the characters connected? Who is Zero? What is the purpose of the Nonary Game? I can't wait to find out.

The level of difficulty is good -- the solutions aren't immediately obvious, for the most part, but they won't drive you crazy either. In general, gameplay and story are blended nicely. Even when you're purely solving a puzzle, the visual & sound design of the game never let the general feeling of creepiness and urgency dissipate. The unity of this game is wonderful.

The dialogue in this game is well written, and it does a good job of masking, and then slowly revealing, the fact that characters may not be who they at first seem.

I could go on and on about how suspenseful and fascinating this game is, but really, you should do yourself a favour and play it ASAP. You won't be disappointed. This is one of the best games of 2010.

(One last thing: parents, please heed the ESRB rating on this one. 999 is DEFINITELY NOT a kids' game!)

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!!!

One of the best Visual Novels I've ever played, and it's in ENGLISH!!
It seems scary and gory at first, but it really isn't, it's mostly puzzles and figuring out why everyone (9 people) are here at 9 Doors with 9 Hours, and the way they tell is completely astonishing.

I will recommend this to any player who is willing to read through a lot of text, because this game doesn't have any voice acting.
But once you start getting absorbed to it, it gets extremely interesting you won't be able to get it off your hands until you clear the game and probably move on to the next in series, Virtue's Last Reward

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.

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.
