Top Positive Review

Kazuha haven??t heard from her brother for a while. With a childhood friend, Hiroya, they decided to go investigate his apartment, hoping to find clues of his whereabouts. In his room, they find a computer screen displaying ??Accessing World V.?? Deciding to access the game as well, Kazuha and Hiroya found themselves trapped in the video game! As they try to figure out how to escape and where her brother was, they meet other players that help them along the way.

Plot: It was simple and sweet. The story was not as fleshed out but I appreciate that they don??t overladen with details. But instead, focused a little more on the couple. The routes were varied enough but can be a bit repetitive since the final goals ended up the same. But you needed to see them all to get the whole story. The guys were such cuties and there was someone for everyone??s taste. Astrum??s was my favorite. Followed by Radius??s. Then Libera??s.

There were two interactions you have with the visual novel. One was when you have to answer to the hero to raise his affection. And the second was when you were in battle. There will be a prompt to ask which action you wanted to take. For most part, there was one correct answer that will raise your Almighty skill. If you don??t have enough by the final chapter, it will be an automatic game over.

The best part was the routes were easier and quicker to achieve. In the few that I have played, you have to go through the same 4 chapters, for all the characters, before diverging to a specific route. However, in Period Cube, after Quest 2, you are already in a specific route. For each character route, it took about 8 hours+. And then, an additional 1.5-2 hours for the bad ending.

Graphics: I love the character designs and also love the fact that the characters sway back and forth, instead being stationary drawings. My only comment would be that their necks must be killing them, having it at that awkward angle all the time.

Technical: The language is in Japanese. The voice acting was spot on as always. I will mention that you can change the heroine??s name, but they will still call you Kazuha. The subtitles are in English. The translation was well done but not always exact to the Japanese. I only found a couple of spelling errors. There were no loading times. And you can easily get 100% completion as long you finish all the character??s routes. There weren??t much extras. The only thing that was unique was the ??His Perspective?? that can be viewed from the hero??s profile. It was nothing more than a quick snippet of the guy??s feelings for Kazuha (usually on a date). It was very short, nothing detailed and kind of left you wanting more.

Note: This was a fairly clean game. However, there was descriptive violence of characters being killed.

All in all, I was uber addicted the game. I finished it within a week. This is a visual novel. It is pretty much reading, with a few prompts to gain affection points. So, if you are looking for something that is more an adventure/RPG/puzzle based, the game is not meant for you. But for me, I loved it and I??m sad I finished so quickly. I did go back to replay some routes but other than that, I got my money??s worth. Definitely a must for otome fans.

Top Critical Review

I have to admit that some parts in this game are just kind of disturbing. Another reviewer mentioned how the MC gets changed by someone while she is sleeping (Weird), one who uses some sort of mind control/merging and it sounds…creepy (WEIRD), and there are some other instances throughout the game, but I won’t go into detail just so I don’t ramble and possibly give away a spoiler.
The characters were less than okay. Astrum is my favorite, but even so, the story and the characters are lacking. It had promise-being based off of being in a video game and it’s different from the average so I wanted to give this a try.
I do not like how the tactics you choose in battle affect who you end up with. How are you supposed to know if attacking or running will get you with who you want to go with? I had to look up a guide due to this. It’s just not ideal or wise at all.
The MC is boring to me. After playing Code Realize, my expectations are immensely high. She doesn’t have backbone and isn’t charming at all. I know not every MC is going to be strong and independent, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be clever or quick to think and act, etc.
All in all, it’s just okay. If you want trophies or just a VN to play, get it, but other than that, I don’t recommend this.

Customer Questions & Answers

Answer: This is an otome. It’s in the same vein as VNs. You play as the female protagonist and get the various male characters to fall in love with you through your answer choices.

What language is it going to be in?
Answer: This is the English version

How can you save actual files of the game instead of only quick saving?
Answer: You can save. It’s usually a start or select. There’s a button that you press that brings up all the configuration and file saves

Is this the english subtitled version?
Answer: yes

Is the main character male or female?
Answer: Female
