    Improves On The Original While Keeping What Made It Special

    It’s not often that a game’s sequel fixes many problems I had with the original without adding in new issues or changing too much. Emily is Away Too manages this feat very nicely. I thoug...

    Pure Fun

    Ever since GTA IV took that series into a more gritty realistic style story the Saints Row series has been there to anchor the over the top side of the spectrum and it has done a great job of it. Sai...

    A Solid Example of the Genre

    Usually visual novels fall into one of two categories: choice filled and kinetic. Choice filled is obviously with branching stories while kinetic have no choices and are totally linear. Bios Ex is ki...

    Puzzles Are A Mixed Bag But Everything Else Raises it Above That

    There were times in Jenny LeClue – Detectivu where I was pretty frustrated but it was hard to stay mad at the game. At it’s core it has a lot of charm and is just very likeable. The chara...

    Great Atmosphere, Poor Gameplay Mechanics

    I looked forward to finally playing Narcosis. It seemed like I would love the setting and story. It turns out I was right. Sadly that’s about all I liked. I figured out in the first 30 minutes ...

    Amazing Depth

    Sisterly Lust is quite possibly the deepest visual novel I have ever seen. The number of different choices you can make to branch the story; how many relationships you can have; the types of relations...

    Not Bad But Not Great Either

    I liked the idea of Starlight Drifter. Assemble your own crew and fly through space taking missions and getting to know your crew. Seemed like a visual novel version of Mass Effect and I love Mass Ef...

    Great Story But a Bit Linear

    Rainswept is a great mystery game. The story kept me interested all the way through. It has some decent twists and turns and good character development. It is fairly linear though. There are dialogue...

    Nails The Time Period

    A Summer’s End handles it’s subject matter with a certain grace and realism. There aren’t any over the top sequences or story lines, what there is are a sweet; realistic look at two...

    Fantastic Backstory and Atmosphere That Is Mostly Wasted

    Lust for Darkness has a great atmosphere and some great lore but it doesn’t seem to know what to do with it. It created this wonderful backstory with an interesting alternate universe and a cul...

    I Felt Like I Was Back in the 2000's

    Emily is Away, if nothing else, is a fantastic nostalgia simulator for the early 2000’s time period and more realistic story than I thought it would be. First off it does a damn impressive, near...

    Great Story and Characters

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York does a fantastic job of using the Masquerade universe and lore to center the story around. It will be easy enough for newcomers to grasp as it has a glo...
