This is by far my favourite game for the Nintendo DS. If i could recommend any game that is a must play to you, it's got to be this. The story, music, game play and everything about it is just so spectacular and brilliant, I can't even remember how many times I've played this.
Now throughout the whole game you play as Neku. He's a real introvert who keeps himself locked away from the world behind his stylish headphones. Doesn't really get along with people, but once he wakes up from his death bed, not knowing where he is, what is happening or how he died then he has to make a few friends to find out what is really going on. He ends up with a few different partners that are in the same predicament as him, all with their own unique style and attitude.
Then you have Neku on the bottom screen, he uses a set of pins(badges) for attacks, each require you to do different actions with the stylus. Some may shoot columns of ice from the ground with an upwards flick, others may shoot bullets at a tap, and other may even form a black hole to suck in your enemies when you draw a circle. There's such a huge collection of pins that if you manage to get all of them, you know you've spent a good year or so continually on this game.
I can't really tell you much about the storyline as i don't want to spoil any of it. But the main point of the game is to survive, and when i say game, i mean after you've died you have to survive for 1 week in this 'game' and if you win, you get your life back. But each day contestants are deleted by noise(the enemies) as they try to complete the challenge set for each day.
The art style in this game has got to be my favourite ever, i even downloaded every character mugshot because i love it so much, i even made my own animated wallpaper because of how great it is...
here is the main theme of the game.
Now i really do hope you go and try this out, you're really missing out if you haven't played it. Buy it for DS if you can find it, or play it through other methods if you can!
