2021-03-278.8IslandNever 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
2021-03-107.5Wolf 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~~
2021-02-239Sengoku Rance
2021-02-238.6Rance 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.
2020-11-097.8Rance 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.
2020-11-076.5Rance 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.
2020-11-058.2Rance 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.
2020-09-198.5Yeguang8.5 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.
2020-01-228.7Baldr 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!
2019-10-139Kono Yo no Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO
2019-06-177Nariyuki → Papakatsu Girls!!It is short but one of the best, if used for the "right" purpose, very spicy!
2019-04-228.7Gyakuten Saiban 38.7 Best game in the series, best cases, best final case, yet not that amazing game in itself, overhyped as hell here, but still a great send off to original trilogy.
2019-02-238Bishoujo Mangekyou -Norowareshi Densetsu no Shoujo-
2018-09-199.5Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru
2018-09-199.2Steins;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).
2018-08-248.8Zombie 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!
2018-08-128.9Super Dangan Ronpa 2 Sayonara Zetsubou GakuenBig improvement over the first, alot more feels and heart to it, aside some dull moments, great plot and plot twists.
2018-05-228.6Subarashiki Hibi ~Furenzoku Sonzai~
2018-05-229.5Steins;GateThe anime is probably the best VN adaptation ever, the VN beneficts from the same pros, and has the cons, but also extra route content that fans for sure will be happy to experience.
2018-05-228Kyuuketsuki no Libra
2018-05-138.6Chrono ClockVery funny and charming, highly enjoyable cast, some routes were great reads and interesting premise, cant go wrong as summer read, provide you dont expect much from the story.
2017-08-298.3Dangan Ronpa Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no KoukouseiThis game does shine sometimes but can also get quite dull, lucky most dialogue was pretty fun and interesting to read, most cases are too ridiculous to find out by yourself too.
2016-11-268.5Gyakuten Saiban 2Bit weaker cases than prequel, but still very enjoyable and colourful cast.
2016-08-199Kyokugen 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!
2016-08-198.7Kyokugen Dasshutsu - 9-Jikan 9-Nin 9 no TobiraThrilling ride that overall isnt up to par with the best of the writter in Ever17.
2016-07-309Ever17 -The Out of Infinity-Tsugumi 8.5, Sora 8.2, Sara 8.2, You 7.2, Coco 9.4, great final route, but it took too long to get there, still worth the time though.
2016-01-297.5Furifure 2"First route" was pretty heartwarming with some "good scenes" too. Second so far, well...
2015-06-018.6Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no ShoujoSome routes were killing me at parts (so vexing). It is a mixed bag of highs and lows with oneechan and natsuki being the best girls!!
2015-05-199.5Umineko 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!
2015-02-159.3Fate/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.
2015-01-269.1Little 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!
2015-01-269.2Higurashi 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!
2014-12-308.6Gyakuten SaibanBought the 3ds HD trilogy. 37 hours well spent with great and charming plot and characters!
2014-11-058.1Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o: Anata to Koibito TsunagiBest couple for the series so far.
2014-11-057Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o: Watashi no Ouji-samaCouple not as interesting as the first game. Got better by the end, really better.
2014-10-179.2RewriteThe first VN I completed, very special for me. Lucia x Kotarou OTP (Lucia route=10)
2014-08-238.7Higurashi no Naku Koro niSlow start, but with a great and creepy atmosphere to it. Plot structure pays off big time later on.
2014-08-148Muv-LuvGot better by the end of Extra, and Unlimited was pretty good versus Extra, but that Lacrosse and side routes...
2014-07-257.5Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke oThis came to me as a big surprise! The cuteness and lovable scenes were great, it really put a small on my face, a big one!!
2014-07-0910Muv-Luv AlternativeIf you havent yet played, go play it, only then you can understand, all the hype, deserved! Truly epic and emotional!!
2014-05-136Sisters ~Natsu no Saigo no Hi~It has great animation for sure...
