"One of the best titles for the Nintendo DS"
5 stars"

A title made by Square Enix and Jupiter with the character designers Nomura Tetsuya (designed characters for the FF series) and Kobayashi Gen, this game has in-depth characters, plot and gameplay. The World Ends With You is one of the few games that requires you to concentrate and be able to use both screens simultaneously bringing out the potential in the console. Not only is the gameplay intense and fun but the storyline brings you into the world of Underground Shibuya and completely hauls you in. If you have a DS, this is a must for your collection.

"An intelligent critique on modern society, and a fantastic RPG."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The World Ends With You is a fantastic game on all accounts. While initially I was turned off by the magna/anime art style and decidedly ‘emo’ flavour, I am now completely hooked. This game provides a unique experience with a complex and involved battle system, taking full advantage of the DS's touchscreen and microphone functionality. I found the character dialogue a little weak, and absolutely loathed the main characters (think whingy, annoying, angsty little bitches), but it is the satirical element of this game which really got me hooked. Underneath it's ‘cute’ exterior and ‘emo’-like themes, lies a clever and deep social-commentary which provides an amazing critique on consumerism and trend-driven, materialistic modern world. It truly is excellent, and for this reason I highly recommend this game to those seeking a fresh RPG experience and some intellectual stimulation.
