IslandNever expected the plot to go in this direction, and the journey IS a rocky one, first 2 routes are nothing to talk about, Rinne's route is when the real deal starts, and from there it gets even better, mind you, the plot can be very confusing due to how things are presented, but once you finally get it, it is genuinely rewarding. The true end of the VN is the culmination of a lot of stuff, if you have reached this far, you will care, a lot. The plot was great in the end, and OST and art are top tiers too.
Turned out to be a way more memorable adventure than I could have guessed at first sight. Kuon = best girl
Wolf TailsWhile the story is not gonna win any awards, the art is surprisingly good, with some decent comedy and 18+, but more importantly, the ending was very pleasing for both girls, so you are bound to finish the VN in a really great mood~~
Rance VI - Zeth Houkai -For something of this scale, released in 2004, the plot really gets long and epic, with great additions to the cast of Rance games (good twists and villains, Camilla gets me M easily), plus lots of FUN and LEWD time with the returning casting. The gameplay also gets better with time, but by the end, it lost me a bit. A good entry for newcomers in the Rance franchise, that will surprise many by how serious and grounded the story can be, outside Rance misgivings.
Rance 5D - Hitoribocchi no Onna no Ko -This game has a really enjoyable story, charming with interesting reveals, but the whole experience would have been better, if the game didn't have a lottery system that controls almost everything, giving almost no freedom at key moments, it is very punishing if you fucked, you may end losing hours of your time, having to reload from the beginning to grind battles.
Rance 02 Kai - Hangyaku no Shoujo-tachi -Rance 2 1990 with a 2010 skin, as such, suffers deeply from being an OLD game, just use a guide and get done with it ASAP, characters were the only part thing I enjoyed from this game.
Rance 01 - Hikari o Motomete -This game meant to be an introduction to the series, and it does a great job at not being overwhelming, being simple and just fun, addicting to a point for its gameplay and wanting to get all the CGs (but you have to use a guide for those, otherwise is very easy to miss a bunch of them). The controversial side of the series is here, but I do think it does a decent job of making it light with some comedy, so really, just don't take it seriously.
Yeguang8.5 Short but memorable, the art and OST really go a long way to deliver something surprisingly meaningful that I definitely won't forget, while the topic may be controversial, it was handled really well, just wish the final ending was longer.
Baldr Sky Dive1 "Lost Memory"Lost Memory is more about setting the world, preparing you for something truly special, that I hope that Recordare becomes, but the stepping stone is by no means unworthy of praise...
Like FSN in the sense that it boasts great pacing for how long it is (also a great interface), the gameplay hits a sweet spot considering this is a VN, it gets your blood pumping, there is rarely a dull moment.
Each route brought something new to the table, great world-building so far +addictive OST and an OP song I never skipped!
Steins;Gate 0Overall great addiction to the franchise, it suffers from not having as much Kurisu on it, but it also introduces an exciting cast & a better ost. Some plotwists were in insane and cool (but also confusing at times), in short plot is still one of the best and fits quite well with the original. Reccomend to finish playing 0 before completing Steins Gate True End (for extra feels).
Zombie no Afureta Sekai de Ore Dake ga OsowarenaiSurprised the setting could be this good on a VN, need MOAR! Very tense, great art overall, even on all those hentai scenes, also MC is kinda hard to get used to (very cold and logical). Very much worth read!
Gyakuten Saiban 2Bit weaker cases than prequel, but still very enjoyable and colourful cast.
Kyokugen Dasshutsu ADV - Zennin Shibou DesuNice improvement vs first one, very confusing at first, but there is an explanation, and the twists are awesome, still not has shocking as EVER17 but damm great game for 3DS!
Umineko no Naku Koro ni1st=9.0, 2nd=9.2, 3th/4th=9.5 Last 2 episodes while with some slow moments too, were just mindblowing, each in a different way, and outstanding OST!
Fate/Stay NightFate: 8-8.5, UBW: 9.3-9.4 & HF: 9.5. HF is my favorite route, loved the dark atmosphere and the better development of the cast.
Little Busters!The first VN I started, what brought into this media. And now after almost 1 year it is over... while most of VN doesnt shine VS other stuff I have read, Refrain= 9.5-10!! It is simply one of the best true end routes for a VN!
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni KaiMinagoroshi= 9.2, and Matsuribayashi=9.5! Really loved both final arcs. A simple yet complex story of friendship I wont forget!
Gyakuten SaibanBought the 3ds HD trilogy. 37 hours well spent with great and charming plot and characters!
