The Best Eroge Ever Review

This is how you do low fantasy.

First, some people might have a strong positive or negative opinion on the gameplay. I can't tell you how good or bad it is by any objective standards, because I don't play JRPGs.

Second, several event cgs and character designs are comically stripperiffic (sometimes even topless). And there are forty-one lengthy sex scenes.

Third, if you've played any other Ikusa Megami games before this one, you probably know the biggest spoilers already.

All of these might be pluses or minuses to different people.

Everything you love about the past WABs is here. Creative and original setting, very different from previous WAB settings but clearly part of the same WABverse. Distinctive artwork, different from previous styles but still quite memorable and appropriate for the series. Arguably it's less distinctive or less interesting than previous ones, but on the flip side there's no shortage of sprites, CGs or animations. The writing style is also exactly as you remember it, with plenty of fresh arc words to tease you with. Plus, for once copypasta is only a small part of the battle scenes (about damn time), so the fights are even cooler than usual.

The most consistent part by far is the comedy. Though nothing phenomenal, it is always amusing, and sometimes even hilarious (my personal favorite was Sora's unintentionally silly narration in the true route). Plus, the slice-of-life/comedy portions of the VN never overstay their welcome.

Score: 7.5/10

Polarization: (-22.7/+55.1)

Routes/Endings Played: All of them, including the YODAngel/むしろもっと踏んでっ bonus patch (that's also worth skipping imo).
