Amazing Improvements and More Interactive

Love this newer version of the game. Once you get used to the different stages and stuff I’m sure you’ll like it too. (And diamonds aren’t as hard to gain like in Love Nikki, so you can get a decent amount clothing during events)I like the fact that you can pose Nikki when saving a picture, instead of her being in the same normal stance. The 3D animations are also just beautiful, I like it better than the 2d. And being able to create and save an outfit and actually see it on the game’s Home Screen (I don’t know what to call it, but you’ll know what I mean if you play it) is an amazing feature. Everything about designer’s reflections, concepts, mind mazes, styling academy, your bond with Nikki, etc, just makes the game more fun and interactive. Don’t get me wrong I still love Love Nikki, but Shining Nikki is just better in my opinion. More interactive, even more beautiful outfits, great 3D animations, and it’s better to look at. Momo is now into BBQ instead of fish and I like the fact that he’s still obsessed with a food. I also like how Nikki has become for extroverted, as if over time in love Nikki she’s gotten used to being with other designers and people and became a bit more social. But the game is great if you play or have played Love Nikki before (and enjoyed it) I’m sure you will enjoy Shining Nikki even more.

Nostalgia and even better than the original!

Love this game so much, although it can have a phew issues here and there connection wise and stuff, it’s really fun and enjoyable, in my opinion it’s even better than love Nikki in my opinion and I’ve played it for 4 or 3 years! I think this is much better than love Nikki but I think it still needs some improving, love Nikki in my opinion has more things to do but at least with the things you do in shining Nikki it isn’t extremely limited (?) like when you have to recharge a lot of times to get a certain amount of things and it’s really really annoying cause then you’d have to level up or something to v5 or v6 etc. I thinking this game makes you spend less and have a fun time, but I hope they bring actual crafting into this game where you can make more than just the outfits for the chapters, at least from what I’ve seen, like the cat headphones in the momentos!
Edit: also I think this game could improve with different body types in the game that are already there like the skin colors, and also to really improve with the skin tone cause it looks really awkward and glossy if that makes sense

Lots of Components & Character Changes

I recently discovered this sequel to Love Nikki and was excited to play it. However, upon starting it, there were a few things I noticed that I didn’t particularly like about the game. Primarily, I found the different game play components as far as accessing multiple stages (solo and team) at one time can be confusing. There is also the matter of being able to obtain needed pieces to specific clothing items that is not clear. Secondly, as a ongoing love Nikki player, I was extremely disappointed in some changes to the character. In particular, Momo in the original game had always been mentioning “fish” but in the new game it now mentions “BBQ,” which I find to be strange and wonder why this was changed when it was greatly emphasized in the prior game. The other matter may be more of a personal opinion. In the original game, I envisioned Nikki’s character to be more of a soft spoken and thoughtful individual whereas the new game contradicts my previous perception of the character. In the newer game, the commentary by Nikki paints a different picture of her being more extroverted and outgoing than her prior demeanor. Aside from these factors, I am enjoying playing this game. In terms of the game, I wish the 3D version of Nikki could have taken on a more animated form since it feels like there is a great contrast between the beautiful 2D plot line and story animations and the more lifelike Nikki.
