Amazing. I don't do reviews, but this game told me I had to. I understand some people don't like reading, but if you don't mind it, you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not playing this. It's that good.
I've played a few Visual Novels in my day, and I'll admit it - I like them. Shame on me, I enjoy reading. Regardless, this game is that. However! There is a point-and-click aspect to this game as well. Bam. My favorite dying genre. This game is a gift from the gods. So to speak. A perfect genre for DS.
My only gripe with it is that you're kind of forced to fail a few times before you can get a happy ending. So be prepared to be depressed a few times before you really get to smile warmly. That and the art can be a bit funky at times, but whatever.
I loved it. You can bet your rear the sequel on 3DS is number one on my GameQ now.

If you are looking for gameplay and hate stories that develop and unfold throughout the gameplay dont bother but for those that enjoy a well written Story, this should be a must on anyone's list. Combination of puzzles and twists keeps you on your toes and this is one of the few games I was compelled to get the 100% completion. If you plan on playing Zero Escape Virtue's Last Reward, I recommend playing this one first or if you already played it definitely play this one as it is labeled as a sister game it felt more like a prequel.
