I meant mk2 is slightly better not in terms of storyline but overall to play with for average gamer, not for me personally. Mainly because of the music being tolerable and more characters, but more things to do in it. The first game seemed more interesting for me because of the combos special moves and burning through the game to get super goddesses up and using them in the DLC and end game, too bad the DLC sucked was too easy lvl 999 err not really more like lvl 99. Neptunia Game was too easy. I thought the storyline was too light but it was pleasing first time round, we all know everyone skipped it on a new game + because they failed at getting the Goddesses up in game first time round.
Think about it dood after reading through the light hearted storyline and getting the Goddesses up in first game what was there else to do? The DLC's were far too easy and that made it boring, what else made the first game boring was not having anything to do no quests once you get all the events up thats it, all the gear equips for the Goddesses were stat jumbled and most things were flawed in the stats, so it made equipping anything other than the base gear and base gear + useless for equipping the rest of the gear. But I had more fun watching cool special moves and finding the hidden treasure for the Goddesses even though i was dissapointed in the outcome of them IT was still fun to do it kind of a chore but more fun than the mk2. For MK2 im not finding it fun or exciting as the first game, all the moves are lame and when you do get to pull off anything good its against a boss or enemy with tons of hp and still i don't find it interesting having to build up AP and SP such a long time just to pull off a super move.
Think about why FFX allows u to summon bahamut at the start of the battle or shiva cool specials and can wipe enemies in 1 go, well tis fun to do that, not waste time building up energy just to whoop weak enemies in 6min when you can do it in less than 1min with a cool blow finish. Remember Zanmato 1 hit kill everything, its cheap but its so damn cool i used to spam battles just to see it over n over. I did the same with neptunia 1 with the cool planetune moves and lastation, leanbox special moves. I kept thinking too bad i wanted to see more super moves just different style.
So yeah bottom line i prefer Neptunia 1 for combos, stylish fx special moves, better graphics imo, better in game sound effects, plus neptunia was more final fantasy battle style this is my 2nd fav style in the world of games, and even though mk2 overall was slightly better to play with having more things to do in the game, characters, more items to find and buy, I'm having to force myself to play it because for those reasons above i dont find the gameplay as addicting as neptunia 1. I think developers need to listen to this sentence, "A bunch of cool stylish special moves sometimes is all you need to boost a game by 70%" Its the reason FF13 and 13-2 are crap, I found none of the special moves interesting in Final fantasy 13 and 13-2 in comparison to its predecessors FF6,7,8,9, X even X-2 had better special cool moves than FF13. How cool is it to transform and see that transformation in full screen with cool fx to go with it? I tell ya Storyline + Gameplay + Visuals + game mechanics + Music = make up most of the game that makes it perfect. Star ocean 2 was amazing when it came out.
I prefer Anime CG when characters talk it makes it feel more anime and it reminds me of bushojo games I used to play lol
