As you could've already guessed, Nanashi no Game is a Japanese survival horror game by Square-Enix. It's not localized (yet) and soon there'll be a sequel.

Okay, let me start with the controls. You hold your DS like a book (like in Ninja Gaiden and some others). You press Right on the control pad to move forward, Up and Down to turn Left/ Right and Left to move backwards. When you hold your stylus in the middle of the screen/ left of the screen/ right of the screen your character will also move respectively forward/left/right. When you do both simultaneously (hold a button and press the touch screen) you'll move quicker. You can also look up/ down by pressing the screen at the top or at the bottom respectively. These controls might seem a bit awkward at first (and they are), but it's only a matter of time before you get used to them. There's also a 'cursed' 8-bit RPG in the game, which controls like any standard RPG.
The graphics are very good (as expected by Squenix, of course) and this definitely adds up to the experience.
There's close to NO music in the game, and the few bits of music that are in the game are very good. Again, it all adds up to the experience.
On to the gameplay. Well, after playing the first few chapters I'm even scared of walking around corners now, cause there might be zombies... Compared to this game Dementium: The Ward is a fairytale. Seriously. In Dementium you could at least expect a bit when things where going to happen and as you can already guess that's NOT the case in Nanashi no Game. Let me give an example: a new chapter starts, you're at the entrance of a cinema. You walk a bit forward and CRASH a window breaks. If you play the game while in a dark area or even in light with your volume turned on, I can assure you you'll jump up and start running around like crazy, yelling OMGWTFBBQ WHAT HAPPENED? It's scary, really. The actual point of the game is quite simple, you run around investing buildings and meanwhile you are running for your life from the zombies that OHKO you if they get near you. If you see, a zombie, RUN. That's it.

I'd give the game a 9.5 out of 10. You'll love it.
If any more information is needed, or if you think I forgot to mention something, I'll gladly edit my review to include it.

P.S.: This is my first (actually my second, if you count the Castlevania Judgment one) review, so please comment.

HAHAHA. I love the review. Yep, this game is pretty scary. I love the idea of the NES cart being evil.

lol, this game reminds me of The Ring somehow, and apparently you have to finish the game in 7 days xD (168 game time hours) or the you die in game? lol

nice review, and indeed run, no killing or anything right?

Nope, no killing, and the story is kinda like the Ring, but I don't think you have to finish the game in 7 days. I believe that it was just the the commercial thats said you HAD to play it or you'd die

only played the game for a short time but i thought it was pretty good i liked the style of the game


i would give it a 7/10 i would have liked to acctually kill the zombies but just running away adds to the creepyness of the game

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
