The World Ends With You: Solo Remix for iPad and iPhone review

Coming from the folk behind the ever-diminishing returns that are the Final Fantasy roleplaying games on console, you might know some of what to expect from The World Ends With You: Solo Remix.

Anime art, over-long, unskippable cutscenes, dialogue apparently written by an eight-year-old and people saying '!' and '...' a lot. It avoids the usual soft-fantasy setting in favour of a modern city, technology and a soundtrack from the nightclub of your worst nightmares. There's a sprawling storyline, plenty of posturing and a lively, fluid combat system that fits touchscreens well.

This 30-something correspondent found TWEWY frankly grating in the extreme, but in fairness it's clearly aimed at teenagers and/or people who don't mind having to spend hours sat watching uninspired FMV before they're allowed to do anything.

OUR VERDICT

Perhaps we wouldn't be anywhere near so bitter if it wasn't so scandalously expensive -£13 is simply obscene.
