Since the Neptunia franchise is getting a new spin-off title soon, Neptunia Game Maker R:Evolution, I though I would rank the current spin offs since there are 10 of them now. I excluded Nep Shooter and the Dimension Tripper: Top Nep game since those are more like fan games rather than proper spin-offs.

So without further ado let’s get this list started.

10. Super Neptunia RPG

It’s not that I hate this one, but there is no doubt it is my least favorite of the spin-off titles. Giving all the girls amnesia really made this story drag on, and by the time they acted like themselves it was over. The girls having their usual banter is a big part of the experience, and a lot of that is missing here. Exploration and combat were pretty meh as well, so while I didn’t hate my time with this one, I wasn’t a huge fan of it either.

9. Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls

The gameplay in Neptune vs. Sega Hard Girls is fine, but the story certainly dragged it down. You’d think with all the great characters in the Neptunia franchise and the Sega Hard Girls, this would’ve been great, but the writing here just isn’t good. They made poor IF into an intolerable bitch in this game, and really made me think less of her overall. The time travel aspects of the story were kinda interesting but everything else fell flat. The one thing they did add that I thought was neat, were more ways to explore the environments, but not even the fact you could ride Nep… as a bike could save this one for me.

8. Neptunia x SENRAN KAGURA: Ninja Wars

I had a great time with the gameplay of Neptunia x SENRAN KAGURA: Ninja Wars, but I felt like this was a very tame entry in both franchises considering their ecchi-filled pasts. I know things were different when this released and the rules for platforms were much more harsh, but it seemed like this one just played things a bit too safe. The balance mini game was fun, combat was solid and the story was decent, but I feel like this was just held back by the fact that it lacked some flavor.

7. MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies

MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies

This one always seems like a lesser version of Neptunia U in my eyes. It has the same style of Hack n Slash gameplay but the overall story just wasn’t as much fun. There are plenty of costumes here, and Uni and Nepgear get some quality time for you shippers out there, but overall this one was a lackluster entry in the franchise for me.

6. Neptunia Virtual Stars

I played Neptunia Virtual Stars about the time I was really starting to get into Vtubers, so it was the perfect time for this to come around. While this one is down the list a bit I have to say I had a really great time playing it. The girls have a lot great banter between them, there are lots of awesome costumes to obtain and the video creation mini game was a ton of fun. I never knew I wanted to see Nep dance like that, but I certainly approve. I had a good time with the run and gun combat here as well, the boss battles where a bit boring, but overall this one was well worth the time invested.
