Megadimension Neptunia VIIR
Top Critic Average
Don't let the odd marketing fool you — there is far more to Megadimension Neptunia VIIR than just its VR. Between its quality of life updates, reworked mechanics and enhanced combat, this game represents the series at its best.
Megadimension Neptunia VIIR is recommended for fans of the original. But tacked-on VR scenes won't do much for those looking for new and exciting experiences. The new tweaks to some systems help to give players more tactical options, but this is essentially the same game that launched in 2016, in a prettier package. For the diehard Neptunia fanatics, that'll be all they need to buy in. However, for $20 less, the original release is available sans VR play and without slight graphics upgrades.
Successful reboot of a game that came out two years ago, now with mediocre VR option. Unfortunately there isn't much for owners of the original.

Quality of life improvements over the already good Megadimension Neptunia VII make this the best Neptunia game to date.
It's pound for pound the best the series has been, illuminating all of its strong points in a more robust and better-looking package. While a few of these changes won't be everyone's cup of tea, fans will appreciate the added interactivity and quality of life improvements. I just have a hard time recommending this if you already beat the original Megadimension VII.
Unless an avid fan of all things tied to the Neptunia series, there's little reason to try the borefest known as Megadimension Neptunia VIIR. Repetitive, with not much humour, and with a profound unwillingness to add something new, or at least fix past flaws, one can easily find a better JRPG fix.
An excellent JRPG.
Megadimension Neptunia VIIR can be considered a Director's Cut of Megadimension Neptunia VII. VIIR is a great RPG with a lot of humor and this new version brings welcomed adjustments to the original and adds a variety of VR content.

Megadimension Neptunia VIIR is a very fun game, but if you have played and beaten the regular version then, other than the short PS VR segments you might at first think there's not much in here for you, which is a yes and a no situation. The new version is running on a different engine than the one for Megadimension Neptunia VII, and that means you get improved graphics and a revamped battle system along with the new PS VR (optional) segments.
Megadimension Neptunia VIIR is an odd duck, being sold heavily on the VR features, even though they are so overtly tacked-on, but whatever the development story behind that, Compile Heart has gone back and substantially improved the gameplay engine, to the point that this is genuinely one of the better JRPGs out there.
