Review of STEINS;GATE
Vote: 9aristocrat on 2023-09-23
|Review||What Steins;Gate manages to do really well, is make full use of its medium as a VN, and straddle the line between super seriousness and light-hearted humour. It fully embraces otaku culture, and many of the jokes are self-referential, making an entertaining read for those familiar with that kind of thing. The characters are one of the strongest aspects of this VN, from the lovable mad scientist Hououin Kyouma, to the genius tsundere girl Kurisu, they are all enjoyable, yet believable. The story is exceedingly good, with many twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end.|
The only criticism I'd say is if you've already watched the anime, playing the VN doesn't add *much*, besides the additional routes, and the appealing character art, drawn by the almighty Huke.
