Inazuma Eleven – Nintendo 3DS Review

Inazuma Eleven is a unique soccer RPG game that is developed by Level-5. It has combines RPG elements and the game of soccer into it to blend it into a very great mix. Players who are fans of RPGs or soccer will have a very fun experience while playing this game.

Inazuma Eleven is originally from a manga that is created by Tenya Yabuno. It has also been made into an anime on TV Tokyo. The story of Inazuma follows a middle-schooler named Mark Evans, who is a very talented goalkeeper that is the captain of the soccer club at his school, Raimon Middle School. His team never gets to play any games because they only have 7 players and in soccer the rules state that you need a team of 11. After meeting Axel Blaze, who is a very talented forward moves into Mark’s town, he searches for more students to join the soccer club so that they can face other schools and ultimately win the Soccer Frontier Internationals, the biggest soccer championship.

The game is broken into 10 chapters, which have two different elements on how it is played. The first one is your traditional RPG style. Players can walk around and go into different parts into the city to get certain items or advance into the story. They can also equip each soccer player with different equipment to boost different stats. Players will also be able to get random 4 vs 4 soccer battles while walking around. There are said to be close to 1000 soccer players available for you to scout students from your school or recruit students from other schools that you have defeated onto your soccer team. So players can switch and change their team anyway they want to create the perfect team for their own personal style.

Now the main part of this game is the actual soccer matches that the player will encounter. The way that this game plays this is by using the bottom screen of the 3DS and the stylus. The controls are not hard to master but it will take a match or two to understand how its work being that this is a unique way of playing a game. Players will control their team by using the stylus to run in certain directions, dodge or attack the opponents, and to take a shot at the goal. Another unique thing that is usable in the soccer matches is that each character can learn special moves. There are 4 types. Shooting moves, Keeper moves, Dribble moves, and Blocking moves. Each character can learn different moves that can be bought at stores or learned by leveling up. But certain characters have unique moves that other characters cannot get at all. Such as Mark’s “God Hand” keeper move or Axel’s “Fire Tornado” shooting move. Some moves that will be learned later in the game will require 2 or 3 characters in order to be done.

This game was originally on the Nintendo DS and never released in the United States but it has been enhanced for the 3DS. The game also has a multiplayer mode where you can have a match or trade players locally with a friend. Players can buy different uniforms for their team while playing multiplayer. There is a lot of replay value in this game and it’s great that the music in the game is very good. The game took me 22 and a half hours to complete and even when it is done there is still much more that players can do within the game. One of the downsides of the game is that it doesn’t really utilize the 3D effects as much as some other games on the 3DS lineup. Only time you can use it is when the players are watching special moves being used. But most of the time the 3D effects are off.

Final Verdict:

Inazuma Eleven is a very fun game and an enjoyable experience. There was a lot that has liked about the game and not a lot that is bad with it. After playing this I will be looking into watching the anime and reading the manga. I give this game a 9 out of 10 making it an RGN Gold Game.

Overall Score: 9 / 10

“An Anime Fan’s Dream Come True” – Time and Eternity Review

Time and Eternity’s characters are full of life and realistic considering they are drawn in anime fashion and slightly exaggerated in the typical ways that have come to be expected in the anime world.

Skipping cut-scenes is an option in the settings when starting a new game, that way if you want to prevent pressing Start by accident you’re all set. However, you still can’t skip any cut-scenes you haven’t seen yet. Honestly, you wouldn’t want to skip these though, this game plays like a film / video game hybrid. You can also decide whether you want the mini-map to be FF7 style (North is fixed at the top) or if you want it to move with your character. These may seem like extremely minute details, and they are, but they also address JRPG fan complaints that come quite often from the western audience. It was good of the developers Imageepoch and Satelight to take these things into consideration, they probably saved a good amount of people a few headaches.

The battle system for Time and Eternity represents what a lot of anime fans wish they could have. Live action beatings are dispensed by the player in random encounters as well as plot-drive battle sequences. You can run up and get close to an enemy and attack with swords, punches, back-flip kicks, and more, and also dash back and shoot them with guns from afar. Items are also available mid-fight from a drop-down menu a la RPG style. Unlike turn-based battle systems, you can actually dodge attacks just by having good timing. You can also continuously attack without having to wait for a turn-meter to fill up. Time and Eternity’s combat system is truly a unique one, and that’s not always a good thing in this genre, in this case that turns out to be a very good thing as the experience is quite fluid and keeps the fun factor high while jet-streaming you through the game’s many fight sequences.

To avoid giving away the plot, I’ll simple give you the earliest detail to go off of. There’s a princess getting married until something terrible happens forcing her on a quest. She has a split personality to say the least. In fact it’s more deep than that. She has two souls living in one body. Each time you level up, she will alternate between the two. These two beings also have the ability to manipulate time and travel through the world in a way much different than us regular folk. They are also some intense fighters. Graphically the title combines 2D hand-drawn anime with 3D rendered art styles. Leveling up through the game you will get the opportunity to hone each of their skills. You will also be able to control their relationship’s eventual destiny by adjusting their affection for the main male character through your actions within the game. While each has their own personality and fighting styles, the cut-scenes (which sometimes feel like a very good anime film within themselves) give you a true sense of getting to know each one.

The soundtrack, audio, and voice can be annoying to those who do not enjoy anime, but if you do like anime this is a game for you to check out without a doubt. The dialogue feels much more natural than most anime leading us to believe that the localization was done with precision and care as well as with a deep understanding of the Japanese-speaking video game audience.

Engine Performance- No glitches were found during our play-through of this game.

Final Verdict- Time and Eternity is perhaps one of the most misunderstood, under-appreciated Japanese video games of this year. Releasing first in Japan during October of last year, this game was localized recently by NIS America who has done an incredible job bringing this vision to an Japanese format. You’ll feel like half of the time you are watching a very interesting anime filled with plot twists and moments that you will laugh with the characters and feel immersion. The other half of the time you’ll be reveling in the unique, live-action battle system that is truly original and possibly even before its time. Time and Eternity gets an 8 out of 10 from RealGamerNewz earning it a Silver Game RGN Rating Award. Forget what you heard, don’t sleep on this game.

Rumor: Deus Ex: Human Defiance and the Nintendo Wii U

Rumors exploded on the internet when Square Enix recently trademarked the title Deus Ex: Human Defiance. Many thought this would be the title of a new Deus Ex title, potentially a sequel to Human Revolution which rebooted the series this generation. However, later reports in fact brought even more interesting truths to light. Deus Ex: Human Defiance will in fact most likely be the name of a Deus Ex movie currently said to be in development.

Today’s news brings another push for the Deus Ex franchise as Deus Ex: Human Revolution has received an ESRB rating, meaning the title will be releasing once again. This time the game is likely to release on the Nintendo Wii U as PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 are still a way’s off. This game could also be a more inclusive version of the title including DLC or newly polished features. It is currently unknown if this version of the game will be Wii U exclusive or multiplatform. Stay tuned to RealGamerNewz.com and give it a bookmark for the latest updates on this and other Wii U titles.
