The original Ninety Nine Nights, or N3, was an early showcase of just what next-gen gaming systems could do, pumping hundreds of character on-screen at a time. It was a simple, shallow experience in the vein of Dynasty Warriors, but it had a certain appeal when the 360's roster was pretty thin. Its sequel, the imaginatively titled Ninety Nine Nights 2, didn't improve things much and thus, against greater competition, bombed. however, it's only £9.89 at Send It, a decent price for a very anger management-minded title. Believe me, laying into hundreds of brainless goons with a sword as long as a bus can really take the edge off things. Namely faces.
It's common practice to choose a title with regards to story, theme, character, or at the very least, imagery. An American Werewolf in London, for example. To the point. Memorable. And, most importantly, relevant. Ninety Nine Nights 2, however, isn't a game set during an epic ninety nine night war, or a tale regarding a battalion of just under a hundred armored soldiers with an amusing typo. Nope, it's simply a Dynasty Warriors clone where you pick a particular character with a specific style, and wade into battle against hundreds of identical troops with no concern for their health. If you're a fan of such games, I suppose N3 is your kinda' thing, but for me, I'd rather write an article lambasting its stupid title.
