The puzzles really are great and worth experiencing. If you care about the story, there is plenty of it in both games to enjoy. Playing these games on the go, in bite-size chunks is the most recommended way to play them. If you can handle overwrought voice acting, some nasty characters, and thin writing, you’ll enjoy the story. For fans of puzzles, thankfully there is a fast skip button that allows you to skip the overly talky bits and get to the real shining star in these games.
Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is an above-average compilation that offers just enough changes to make it a good purchase for both newcomers to the series and franchise veterans, although, as always with this genre, those looking for action had best look elsewhere.
It’s not clear whether the door has truly closed on Zero Escape in the long run, but in the short term I implore you, if you value plot, character, and sound in videogames at all, to invest in The Nonary Games as soon as possible. It’s a choice you won’t regret, and were we in a death game ourselves, I’d bet my life on it.
