Project X Zone 

 

Project X Zone is a collaborative project between Sega, Capcom and Namco Bandai Games. Characters from twenty-seven different franchises are included in this Namco Bandai Nintendo 3DS published hand held game. There are over two hundred different characters. Even the most knowledgeable video game connoisseur will have problems identifying all of them.

You may have read Project X Zone is a fighting game. That is false. I know some gaming sites are making that incorrect assumption based on screenshots and videos. Project X Zone is a turn based strategy role playing game. Like Shining Force or Final Fantasy Tactics.

You might wonder how so many different characters from so many different fantasy worlds, and time frames can all co-exist in the same game. Portals. The boundaries between these worlds is being broken down and characters are being transported between them. This makes for some interesting conversations between these different characters.

There are numerous teams in Project X Zone. A team consists of two characters, and they have a support character that can be called into the battle. A team that is close by (within a space) can also be called in for support. When a gauge is filled then a powerful super team attack can be instigated. All of this means monster damage when attacking.

The battle screens contain all of the violence and most of the enticement to lust issues. Players issue battle commands as the combat is going on. Support characters and teams are brought in with the 'L' and 'R' buttons. Pressing 'A', 'A' + a directional button will enact different attacks. Multiple commands are allowed on an attack screen.

The key to victory in Project X Zone is keeping your teams close to one another so they can use the support attacks. Also saving the special team attack for the bosses. The more hits your teams do in an attack the more experience they earn. This is important. As well as picking up items in treasure chests. Beating enemies also produces items.

Expect long battles in Project X Zone. At first the lack of clothing on many of the female characters bothered me. Especially having to constantly watch them bounce around in the special attacks. Then there was the lengthy conversations where they would position themselves in revealing positions. I was eventually able to find a way to tune them out, look away at the right time, and ignore the sexual objectification of women. Which is extremely high in this 3DS game.

Project X Zone is a lengthy game that will take many hours to beat. Battles have a way of looking easy at first, and then more enemies teleport in. Conditions for the battles change on a dime as well. So paying attention to what you have to do to win is very important.

Project X Zone is a 3DS game only for the older members of the family. I would say old enough to be able to contain their raging hormones. I wish there was a way to turn off some of the in battle movies. I also wish modest attire would have been a choice for all the characters. Finally I never understood why the battle sequences would continue long after the enemy had no hit points left.

Project X Zone is a strong 'T', bordering on a 'M' rating. Aside from the many ESRB descriptors there is also references to a religious belief in goddesses.
