Mini review:

Niggaz vs Satan (NvS fort short), a funny title to begin with... The "Niggaz" (even though they're all white, don't ask) are the heroes of the game, that is to say Don Miguel and pals. And erm "Satan", well it's Satan, the red guy with horns, you know... The story takes place in Russia at our time, and features characters and place that really exist. The game has a special enough humor that I like, with a lot of weird situations, even though you don't understand everything because of the doubtful English translation... But the shitty translation also adds a funny touch. :p
By the way, NvS was also the occasion for Don Miguel and his pals to go crazy on a teacher they've had and that they bear, known as "ALEXSUX" in the game, and who is Satan's pawn!
The difficulty of the game is rather high, and you often have to struggle to survive... But that gives an old old-school and hardcore side to the game, and it's always better to play something challenging than too easy.

Graphically, the game uses many tiles that come by default with RPG Maker 95, or other wide-spread graphics. With that, we've also got low quality pictures (limited by the 256 colors of RPG Maker 95), and half-assed drawings (see the dog on the right :p)... So it doesn't look very good, but that still gives a unique atmosphere, and fits with the humor of the game.
As for sounds and musics, they're nice. Sometimes, along with the textual dialogues, you can hear the characters talk in Russian, or say shits in English, like "Wusup man?", which is quite cool. :)

Also note, Don Miguel made NvS within 6 months only! In early 2002, Don Miguel planned to release a "Deluxe" version of NvS, fixing bugs and improving graphics (I was supposed to help him in this regard). Finally, Don changed his mind and the project got cancelled...

Anyway, to conclude, NvS is far from perfection, but it's a game that doesn't take itself seriously and that's enjoyable to play!
