The Best Eroge Ever Review

This is how you do low fantasy.

First, the plots are usually very predictable, sometimes even contrived, to the point where there's almost no tension at all even near the climaxes of the routes. Fortunately, this isn't what the VN is trying to focus on, so a lot of it can be ignored.

There's no denying this VN has a mix of good and bad parts, so it'll probably depend on how good you are at ignoring the bad and focusing on enjoying the good. Also, the optional Ikoi route is the worst by far (it ends up being little more than a jumble of events from Hanene's route and some new things that never go anywhere) so skipping that should help.

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.

Weirdly enough, the pacing is also very consistent and usually spot on (for some reason only sad scenes ever get padded out). Thus, even if you're underwhelmed by one of the early routes, it does virtually no harm to your desire to read the rest.

Score: 7.5/10

Polarization: (-84.5/+30.2)

Routes/Endings Played: All 13 endings.
