The reviews are very short.
The remake of the first Yakuza game. The story is the same from the first game and adds some substories and minigames. The game also adds the battle system from Yakuza 0 and the “Majima Everywhere” system where you have to fight Majima in Kabukucho to learn moves for the Dojima no Ryu Style. It is also possible to learn moves with a master from Yakuza 0.Something new in the battle system is that bosses regenerate their HP, you can stop them using a heat action with the same color of the boss aura. That heat action is called Kiwami.
It was fun but I would have prefered the game to have the same battle system from the original version. I recommend it if you never played the first game but you have to play 0 to get familiar with the battle system.
Tokeidai no Jeanne
During World War II, Rollant, a soldier from France, and his friend Olivier participate in the Invasion of Normandy. They get separated from the rest of the group and end up in a forest at night. There they get attacked by a cavalry led by the black princess. Roland protects his friend and felt unconscious. When he wakes up, he finds a girl called Jeanne that’s threatening his bounds. He reveals to Roland that what happened in the forest was a dream and she’s a prisoner of time.
The story of the game is ok but I don’t recommend it unless you don’t have anything better to play. It only has 2 good endings and 3 bad endings. And the illustrator is the same from the Sen no Kiseki manga so Rollant reminds me of Adol and Jeanne reminds me of Alisa.
Prince of Stride
This is the first Kadokawa otome game?
The protagonist Nana moves to Tokyo to fulfill her dream of joining Hounan Senior High Academy’s Stride club. Nana’s dream begins when she sees a video of a strider mach. Her club enters the national tournament of Stride.
There’s a lot of family drama and not much romance. You have to train everyone and when there’s a tournament race, the characters have to be put in order of the race. During a break with some of the game idols, you can choose which character route you want to enter. The routes are almost the same except some events like when Nana has fever.
I enjoyed the game and you can skip the races you’ve already played.
The remake of the first otome game. It has some changes compared to the original version and it adds a new character that has nothing to do with the Queen test.
It doesn’t have an interesting story but I like the characters. The game ends if you or Rosalia, your rival, becomes the Queen, if you confess your love to one of the guardians or if one of the guardians confess to you.
I recommend this game if you want to play the first otome game. The characters and presentation of the game is good. And you have to fight for your love /laugh
Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma
The last game of the Zero Escape series. It was made thanks to the fans because in Japan the games weren’t that popular (there are a lot of escape games so that might be one of the reasons why it wasn’t that popular).
The game was a big disappointment. It doesn’t resolve some of the questions from VLR, the characters that were supposed to appear from VLR aren’t in ZTD and it gives more questions instead of ending the series. It seems that the story was written in a hurry so Uchikoshi only wrote D team and true ending. The other team parts were written by other people. Mira and Eric are probably the worst characters and Eric’s backstory is kinda ignored.
The puzzles were easy and the game wouldn’t be that long if it wasn’t because of the many cutscenes ZTD has. The 3D is very bad, sometimes the characters look weird and the animation is bad. I even had some fps problems on the PC version and sometimes the music stopped playing.
I only recommend this game if you want to see how the trilogy ends. Otherwise just ignore it. The game was made for the western market so that’s why is so different from the previous games.
