Overall, Megadimension Neptunia VII is a great installment to the series, and fans of the series will definitely enjoy it. If you're looking at the changes between console to PC, not much has changed, but if you didn't get a chance to play on console, now is when you can. Jumping straight into the series with VII might confuse newcomers, but series veterans will feel right at home.

Far bigger in scope than any of its predecessors, Megadimension Neptunia VII has nevertheless managed to retain its focus over what fans enjoy about the series most; its humour and its fan service. This game should be enough to get people who have waned on the series back into the fold, thanks to the additional characters, vastly improved graphics engine, and expanded plot and combat system. It won't be enough to get the series removed from Gametrailer's list of franchises that need to die, but to be honest I don't think Neptune gives a toss.

Megadimension Neptunia VII is exactly what the series needed, providing huge improvements to both the combat and exploration. Even if you're a newcomer to the series I think this is a good place to start

Megadimension Neptunia Victory II is the best game in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series to date. I can easily recommend this game to any and all PS4 owners who are JRPG fans, or people who never really got into Neptunia and wanted to give it another go.

I'm going to have to go ahead and say that despite the really strange overall feel of Megadimension Neptunia VII, it's a game that I feel like a specific group of gamers will greatly enjoy, while a more general group will have some fun playing, period. Fans of JRPG games, visual novels, and fan service will spend their time in adulation.

The game isn't perfect, it has some frustrating issues and little annoyances that may be a product of localization, but overall it is a very fun experience with more strategy than previous Neptunia games, with an intriguing story and gameplay that is a bit more newcomer friendly as well.

Megadimension Neptunia VII is a great JRPG, with witty writing, fun and polished combat, and a vast amount of content to keep players coming back. The game never takes itself too seriously, allowing for a very enjoyable experience.

In the end, Megadimension Neptunia VIIR brings a lot of new things to the table that caters to both the players who played the prior version and to those who missed VII and are considering going into VIIR instead.

Megadimension Neptunia VII is a bubbly game that I could easily see getting worn out with its abundance of releases. However, coming into it as a new player I really enjoyed the ride. There is a ton of content, fan service, and solid RPG mechanics to make it entertaining, if not a bit too cute for my own tastes. I have zero clues what happened in the story; as I said coming in on a conversation I missed three quarters of, but I still was able to appreciate the genuine humor in the writing.

While there is still a decent amount of asset recycling going on, the series has never been better in this new console entry for the Neptunia series.

Megadimension Neptunia VII is a story about a girl in a very strange world, but that world happens to be a apocalyptic bizarro dimension inside of a video game console. The game manages to be fun with only a limited amount of improvement. Continuing with its signature game within a game concept, Megadimension Neptunia VII is going to please fans and not do much to change the minds of detractors. Very similar to the past titles in the series, this game is tried and true because Neptune never changes.

The most competent game in the series so far and there is definitely some sort of addictive brain potion mixed into the battle system. The plot is the best yet but there are unfortunately a few annoying additions which really should have been left out.

Hyperdimension Neptunia VII is an acceptable RPG, but may be a disappointment for series diehards looking for true change, or newcomers to the franchise. Any other way, the game fully realizes it's ambitions on top of it's other minute flaws, and cements a rich and non-exasperating formula for players who know what to expect.

In the end, Megadimension Neptunia VII can certainly be classified as the biggest and most competent Neptunia game to date, which may or may not sound as impressive depending how much of a fan you are.

Megadimension Neptunia VII shows that Compile Heart understands how to use the hardware to make their games feel faster and play better but is again let down by the same flaws the series has had for the last few games.

It stumbles in a fair few places, and it likely won't sway those who aren't fond of the basic idea of the franchise. Overall, however, 'Neptunia VII' represents a strong step forward in a franchise that seemed all too content to stand in place. While I wish it went further with its parody than it ever really does, a sequel that doubles down on the good ideas introduced here could potentially lead to something great.

Megadimension Neptunia VII's combat system is nothing really ground-breaking. There are a number of fun and interesting battle mechanics to play around with, but it takes a good deal of time before they're all really needed. However Neptunia title will obviously be welcomed by its fans, and it makes a nice entry point for those wanting to get into the series with it's fun and amusing plot, along with fantastic character development.

This one is for fans only; and good on Compile Heart and Idea Factory for that. So to the Nep-heads who have enjoyed the series' take on the console wars and its obsession with pudding and boobs: I can't think of a reason why you shouldn't pick this one up. To everyone else, there's probably a better RPG you should spend your time and money on.

Megadimension Neptunia VII is a mixed bag, with great combat elements and parody sadly shuffled together with overly padded plot, repetitive boss fights, and boring story presentation. All of the bad could be overlooked with how well it analyzes and tears down the low points of gaming culture, but then it sinks itself just as low with copious and pointless bewbage.

It really is a shame. Megadimension Neptunia VII is legitimately one of my favorite RPGs of all time, but the issues in the PC version make it a chore to play. Again, if you own a PS4, it's definitely worth playing on that system. If not, ask yourself what you're willing to go through to see cute girls based on video game consoles have an adventure

Megadimension Neptunia VII stumbles into the same traps that many of its peers have fallen into before, serving up lazy quests and a questionable amount of fan service. Fortunately, it makes up for these shortcomings with boundless energy and endearing characters who provide an enjoyable and light-hearted trip through alternate dimensions. While the game may have benefitted from enhancing some of its mechanics, it's by no means a bad RPG experience – just one that we feel like we've had many times before.

Megadimension Neptunia VII isn't at all mega, but it is quite possibly the best playing entry in the series yet. Whilst that's a prospect that is sure to bring a smile to the faces of those fond of Nep Nep, it's likely to set no one else's world on fire

If you already like the Neptunia series, this game is for you... as long as your PC is up to snuff. If you aren't a fan, though, there's little new here to justify giving this latest title a chance.

Megadimension Neptunia VII is a continuation of a series without much change, which in this case weighs it down. Each game fundamentally is too similar to every other one to the point where when a new one comes out, there is only so much to look at in new ways, and previous flaws can only be forgiven for so long. In a game that relies very heavily on humour, it sacrifices much in the way of narrative and ultimately the source material for the comedy elements has worn too thin.

For the devoted fans of the Neptunia series, this is definitely a title worth picking up. It's still the same reference overdosed, trope obsessed, fanservice heavy RPG series it's always been, and for some, that's great. The new characters are decently charming, and the story is substantially longer than some of the recent Neptunia spin-offs. If cute girls based off of the gaming industry's biggest titans (and has-beens) isn't your thing, though, there are other, better, RPGs worth your time.

There was hope that the Neptunia series would finally fulfill its potential on PlayStation 4, but sadly that hasn't happened. Good ideas are still tarnished by poor execution and disgusting attempts at fan service.
