Stages are considerably shorter this time around. Many stages have around 50-100 enemies if not less.

That said, enemies also have more HP and hit harder and quicker than in U, so it's certainly harder. That said, once you unlock the Dogoo Man support that lets you regain 15% HP, you can basically just hang back and walk around for a while when your HP gets low and just use your heal support once it charges up, so it isn't too hard unless you're going for SSS ranks. Not even the arbitrary time limit does much to make it harder given it's generally 30-60 minutes long, which is far longer than you will ever need even with waiting for supports to heal yourself.

The game is even more linear than U is and the difficulty curve feels a bit too high. There doesn't seem to be any sidequests whatsoever and the enemies get stronger fairly quickly, so unless you really like grinding, you can expect to use the same two characters the entire time as there isn't much of a chance to grind naturally.

You don't start off with all characters by default (you start off with Blanc, Neptune, Nepgear, Ram, and Rom, with each chapter adding 1-2 new characters) and every character starts off at Level 1 regardless of where you unlock them, making it pointless to actually use most of those new characters since again, the difficulty curve is too high to make using said characters practical without grinding (they could probably survive if you just hang back and get in hits every so often since the stat boosts from leveling up aren't too significant to make later stages near-impossible at Level 1, but even that will likely only hold true for so long).

Lily ranks now increase every battle instead of every 3 battles, so they're easier to grind, not to mention the only trophy related to them simply requires you to max out one lily rank. Why it gives you a silver despite taking all of 7-9 battles depending on who you start with, I don't know. It's probably similar to whatever reason they had for making the SSS Rank trophy a silver even though the first level is a free SSS Rank (it has all of three enemies).

Overall, I'd say it's both a step forward and a step back from U. I appreciate that they're trying to make it so each stage isn't just "mash Square for 5 minutes and win," but it still feels kinda boring.


When the first time I played it, the game is ridiculously easy, even though I never played U before. It's no surprise I've got highest grading very easy, except that one daily quest for Saturday in multiplayer mode.

it's pretty epic that MP mode also works alone, too bad it doesnt work with WLAN off...

Wait, you can do MP missions alone? If so, does that void anything at all or is the only disadvantage the lack of firepower? If this is true, then that's great news since I imagine the Korean servers will go dead (no pun intended) in the two weeks it'll take me to get it even with preordering and finding other people with the drive and passion to actually bother with the Korean version would likely drive me insane.

I think thae lack of power and the fact you cannot switch are most of your problems. (and the fact you cannot use bonus skills)

but what pun.

but as I said there are items so it isnt that hard. I usually just use Nepgear so she's pretty high up.

Do your levels from single player carry over or are you back at Level 1 for MP? If they carry over, I imagine leveling up to Level 99 would help with that, and it wouldn't even be a waste of time if it didn't do much since there's a trophy for it anyway.

I mentioned dead servers. The game happens to be about zombies, which are technically undead, but it's close enough. :P

Assuming the time limits are as stupidly long as they are in single player, you might even be able to get by with the two Doggo supports since they each heal for 15% HP and since you can always just hang back while the support charges, there's not much concern about dying before it charges completely.

"Megatagmension"

...

I know it's actually pretty easy to pronounce when you look at it for a second and it incorporates the Tag part of the title, but still, what the hell...

Hyperdestruction Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies sounds better to me.

Also they're using the term 'Megadimension' more often....

Gundan can be translated as "Corps", so in the original title it means "Vs Zombie Corps" or "Vs Zombie Army".

Either of these two is way cooler than just "Zombies".

There may be a reason behind the name not being zombie corps maybe even this and this could cover the other one, possibly.

Well...
How about Zombie Platoon, Zombie Squad, Zombie Militia, Zombie Batallion or Zombie Brigade? :lol:

not to say these are necessarily the issues. Just, there's a possibility that they hit some sort of trademark wall, and had to stick with "zombie". that's only from a quick google search, I'm sure there are better methods to research this.
