Alice Gear Aegis CS: Concerto of Simulatrix is one of those C-tier budget games based on an anime/mobile game for a cash-grab so obviously it's not objectively good. That said, if you go into it knowing what it is and expecting little, the game's fine. The fact that every character's story mode seems to have some unique moments is cool, and it's replayable in that you need to beat it multiple times to hit all the treasure icon spots.

It's good for what it is. Granted I do tend to really enjoy these weird, kinda-jank arena not-quite-fighter games made on a budget. It kinda reminds me of Azur Lane Crosswave in a lot of ways. It's mindlessly repetitive enough that it can be fun to play while listening to podcasts or whatever.

The game definitely does its job, at least. I did end up watching the anime after starting this game. So yeah I guess I'm an Alice Gear Aegis fan now?

Alice Gear Aegis CS: Concerto of Simulatrix is a terrible name though. Alice Gear Aegis already doesn't really make much sense but they try to explain it in the lore (I think? Based on what I've gathered). Concerto of Simulatrix, though? What a weird name. The game's not even based around music!

Man this game was a disappointment on so many levels for me. First thing I had no idea this was actually a mobile game before being turned into a console full fledged game if I knew that I might have went into this with lower expectations. Reason this effected me is because I LOVEEEE Virtual On and I have been feigning for a new entry and this was the closet to a new NA Virtual on we have gotten in FOREVER.

Anyways onto the game.

While the gameplay is fine enough there really isn't much to each character past their ultimates and one weapon that is specific for them. Past that they all play pretty much the same not making for a fun diverse cast as it pretty much dissolves into which character do you just like from the mobile game. Overall the gameplay is passable but it just didn't do enough for me as the gameplay loop hell this game puts you through was barely doable.

Onto what ultimately hurt this game for me is the lack of single player content, difficulty , dead online and a TERRIBLE trophy list.

The single player content is pretty much a boring "story" mode and a versus mode there is barely any single player content in the game and the story mode is simply boring. I won't get into the story for this game as I really don't care for it and once again you won't care about it unless you are probably into the mobile app.

Online? well it was dead at launch and its still dead as we speak you will not be able to find a match unless you probably grab some poor soul who also paid for this game.

Now I usually don't talk about trophies since I usually never really make it count for its score but I have to talk about the trophies in this game. This game has probably the worst easy trophy list I have ever seen with it forcing you to play the story mode 3+ times with EACH character and there are about 20ish characters to play as. On top of having to buy 1000+ accessories for ALL characters.

Overall an immense disappointment and while it isn't the worst playing game there is just not much saving grace with this game.
