Nippon Marathon is a waste of digital space. The game’s seemingly fun Takeshi’s Castle-like concept is completely undermined by its several technical issues and questionable design choices. Even with that cluster-mess to the side, the game at its core attempts to be both wacky and innovative through the character of its outlandish foundation, but only comes off as poorly developed, boring, and ultimately frustrating.
There are some concepts that I thought were interesting. At one point the race stopped for myself and the other contestants to answer questions using weirdly obtuse answers and those answers would help win fans over. It has a bit of that Mario Party randomness that can be appealing. Nippon Marathon in theory is a good idea, but when it came to actually playing the game I did not enjoy myself and I really wanted to.
Nippon Marathon es en su conjunto un título que prentende llamar la atención más por su ambientación de corte japonés, su estilo absurdo y su faceta multijugador. Sin embargo en el resto de aspectos es donde falla principalmente ofreciendo un apartado gráfico bastante deficiente que se mezcla con un diseño de menús muy básico y un diseño de personajes poco interesante que resultan en un título insustancial.
