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.

you’re gonna like it, trust me

as an avid player of love nikki, shining nikki took me by suprise with its 3d animations and immersive story. shining nikki is great at story telling, and i find the story more interesting then love nikki’s, as well as the game more interactive in general. there’s loads to do, with the mind maze, investigations, the arena, the nail salon, and more. i also enjoy how much easier it is to get a hold on diamonds, which makes it easier for me to get rare set items during events.

one thing i also want to mention that i really enjoy is how easy it is to craft sets. in love nikki, rare sets were not easy to design and it was a complicated process to find the original accessory you needed to being your process crafting the rest of the set. in shining nikki, the sets in the workshop are easy to craft, taking us to an entirely different menu that lets us see all the items in the set, how they look, and what we need to craft the items.

i do think that shining nikki is superior to love nikki, and i have been playing love nikki since childhood. i love the stories of characters such as Loen, Ashley, Lilith and the like, as well as the raised stakes in the story. i recommend everyone try this game, new players and old ones coming from love nikki alike <3

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.
