The Best Eroge Ever Review
This review is only for the first four episodes. See my The Best Eroge Ever review for my opinion of the last four episodes.
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.
Throw in the godly soundtrack and excellent direction on top of that, and the result is unbelievably addictive and immersive. If you put any effort into reading this VN carefully, you will be spending hours obsessively trying to figure out how to solve it, and the characters' own arguments will get progressively more epic until you're craving every last letter of red text.
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.
