He awakes aboard an old passenger ferry, dazed and confused he stumbles around the room trying to reclaim his memories. First thing he noticed was a number roughly drawn on the cabin's door. A bright red number 5. Junpei's memory then returned and he remembered what happened right before becoming unconscious! A mysterious person with a gas mask crossed his mind.

10Classic!

The best, most creative and most unique game on the DS, and if you look at the other visual novels for the system you can see why. None of them even reached a half of what 999 is. Tough interactive choices and many branching storylines to tell make it so thrilling and special you'll probably be in awe every time the game ends - that is, if you don't look online for the multiple endings. It gets a really easy 10 for me.

8.0Great

I'm not exactly a huge fan of visual novel games, so personal preference resists me from ranking this within my favourite games of all-time. but I can say though, as a game that involves a lot of reading, it is a damn good read. The premise is quite interesting and all the characters are colourful, it has a very good dark tone, and more importantly, the plot is rife with questions upon questions, making it a very good mystery plot. While I found the ending to be a bit... confusing, it is an anime story, so it's pretty much expected to have some silliness and debatable theories. Overall, if you consider yourself an avid reader, I highly recommend you check out this game.

10Classic!

As one of the first big transitions to an English-based audience and on a portable gaming console no less, 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors is the type of game you can't just describe to someone - they need to experience it for themselves. From the moment I picked up this game, I couldn't put it down, and in a span of about three days, I'd finished at least 4 separate playthroughs including the true ending. With its perfect localization and at times, gratingly hard escape-the-room puzzles, 999 will have you hooked to its gripping tale of survival from the get-go and will not let go until the truth behind the title's "Nonary Game" is finally unearthed.

10Classic!

I beat this game in 2 days. It's probably the best story I've ever seen in a video game. This is my first visual novel. It will not be my last.

9.5Classic!

Aksys excels at localization. The quality of narrative writing, tactful dialogue, and guaranteed chuckles is so strong that it's impossible to tell the story was first written in another language. Said story, in and of itself, could not be more enthralling. Every character is immensely likable, development is paced perfectly, and the plot is so intricate (yet spotlessly constructed) that it will keep you guessing until the very last sentence. And it'll certainly continue to whizz around in your head long after that. Puzzles draw the fine line between comprehensible enough to figure out but complicated enough to require extensive thought. If you're looking for a true work of art composed for DS, look no further than 999.

9.0Fantastic

This game takes some time to warm up to due to the mediocre, high school level quality of writing. If you stick with it for several playthroughs, though, the story becomes really intense, and in the mean time the solid puzzles will hold your attention. The conclusion is positively mind-blowing and 999 most certainly tells the best story I've seen in a video game.

10Classic!

Saw it. Imported it. Played it late at night. Freaked out. Finished it. Freaked out again. Now my brains hurt and I have a strange obsession with the number 9. I love this game to death and hope I'll get to play it's sequel someday. Warning: Once you start there is no turning back.
