Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is a perfect addition to any visual novel fan’s collection. Both games are truly a work of art that combine mystery and horror to tell a story that is so gripping that it’s almost impossible to put down. The only thing missing is the inclusion of the third entry of the series, Zero Time Dilemma.

These are both great visual novels in their own right, and highly deserving of their combined 50-odd hour playtime. Their puzzles give them the mechanical hook often missing in visual novel games, while the plot avoids the teenage histrionics that plague much of the genre. If you’re looking for a meaty tale without the faintest whiff of RPG, The Nonary Games are an experience you won’t want to rewrite.

In many ways, I’m envious of those who have yet to experience Uchikoshi’s masterpieces, as I would love to relive my first playthroughs of both 999 and Virtue’s Last Reward for the first time. The characters, puzzles and plot twists encompass some of my favorite moments in gaming, and those who decide to try these games out for themselves are in for a real treat.

Pour ceux qui ont déjà parcouru ces jeux en long, en large et en travers, l'achat de cette compilation ne se justifie pas vraiment. La mise à jour graphique ? Un roman visuel se joue rarement pour ses graphismes. Le flowchart pour 999 ? 60 € est élevé pour un organigramme. En revanche, pour ceux qui n'y auraient jamais touché, cette compilation est appréciable. Vous aimez les scénarios complexes ? Vous aimez les situations angoissantes ? Vous aimez tout simplement vous prendre la tête avec des casse-têtes dans des salles entières ? Et vous n'avez joué ni à 999, ni à VLR ? Alors cette compilation est incontournable, à condition de manier l'anglais.

Zero Escape The Nonary Games rappresenta un prodotto da non mancare per tutti coloro che mettono la narrazione al di sopra di qualsiasi altro elemento: la mente di Kotaro Uchikoshi ha dato vita ad un universo malato, disturbante, tremendamente affascinante, talmente magnetico da favorire la rigiocabilità compulsiva, almeno finché non si sono visualizzati tutti i finali possibili. Il lavoro svolto su 999, in particolare, è di ottima fattura e migliora notevolmente l'esperienza di gioco, anche se a Virtue's Last Reward non è stato riservato lo stesso trattamento. La mancanza del capitolo conclusivo e della lingua italiana potrebbero frenare certe fasce di pubblico, e l'assenza di extra di rilievo dispiacerà ai fan di vecchia data, ma la qualità dei prodotti compresi nella collection è difficilmente opinabile.
