A phenomenal game and a phenomenal sequel to the first TWEWY ! if you are a fan of the first TWEWY this is quite literally a MUST play. You pretty much get the whole package with this game from amazing characters , story , gameplay , world and just about everything else. I highly enjoyed my time with this game and know for a fact this will become a game down the line that will hold a special place in my heart. I really don't have many issues at all with this and potentially might even move up to a 10 as I sit back for weeks and think more about the game. HIGHLY recommend !
I was slightly anxious throughout my playtime of this game purely because I was so worried it wouldn't live up to it's predecessor especially with the 14 year gap, Kingdom Hearts 3 has given me trust issues man. NEO: The World Ends With You takes one of my favourite games and follows up with all new amazing characters, story and gameplay improvements. Rindo is an amazing protagonist, I love how his time powers force him from his usual passive self into a more active person and they use it for so many cool scenarios. I have yet to get all the secret reports (or other post game stuff) and I kinda want to replay it to look closer at certain aspects of the story but I loved it despite all that. This game uses the motif of 'The World Ending With You' (as it were) and reapplies to people in our modern day in such an expert way; take a look around at that world you live in with all those people around you. With so many voices clashing, is there any point in voicing your own? Each person makes decisions but so do you. Your decisions and actions may have drawbacks but what makes them important is that they are your's. "Don't fear the fight, fight your fear instead."

Definitely worth the wait. NEO: The World Ends with You is a worthy successor of the first game.
At first I had my problems with the game due to the pacing (the time travel parts added too much padding) and the characters were kinda undeveloped until(!) week 3 happened.
The game was a 7/10 for me until week 3. Week 3 is the best week in the game, especially to the end. Returning characters from the first game, basically all of them besides Hanekawa, is a blessing.
The gameplay is such an improvement and so much. If you have the right pins, it's a blast. The new remixes of the songs and the new songs in general are top tier again. This time clothing works properly.
PLAY THE FIRST GAME FIRST!!
Waiting 14 years for this game, I'd say the wait was worth it and more. I was damn giddy at certain points. It's one of my favorite Square IP's and I'm so happy it came back. A lot longer than the first game too. Characters, dialogue, voice acting and music was amazing. Honestly, I had given up hope we would ever get a sequel but it made me so happy we did. I can see myself replaying this game just as much I did the first. A wonderful experience.
