Unique concept that was very well written. A depressing, horrifyingly realistic lens on mental illness. Not only does it have some great psychological horror, but the true "horror" comes from reality, and that is used intentionally to add impact. Some great subversion of visual novel tropes. Really loved the atmosphere and style. Too short to fully display it's qualities, but didn't feel lacking. Looking forward to seeing some of the themes and style more fully realized in the sequel.
Incredible in every way. All 3 routes contained profound messages, themes and character arcs that were planned out and executed to perfection. It's a slow build story that results in some of the best revelations and pay-offs in any work I've experienced. Top this all off with it's unique art that really enhances the stand out moments, an incredible soundtrack and full voice acting to boot. The world-building and lore is so in-depth that it feels like I've barely scratched the surface of it's mechanics after 70 hours of reading. Suspense, mystery, action, romance, horror, and history all combined into one incredible magical realism story. The only thing that holds it back is that the slice of life can drag on at times (and that h-scene writing is laughable). Writing is sometimes a bit clunky or weird, likely a result translation combined with the writer's unique style and lack of experience, but it feels very sincere either way. Reading this all blind as my introduction to the Fate universe was such a wild journey, with some of the most shocking plot twists and powerful moments that evoked my emotions or amazement. Easily one of my top media pieces of all time, and the anime adaptations don't even begin to compare.
One of the best in it's genre, has a super addictive gameplay loop paired with a mysterious, unsettling atmosphere that keeps you wondering what's next. Great sense of progression and I love how it characterized Samus + her backstory, making her resourceful and strong, but still worn down. Beautiful pixel art and an outstanding but repetitive soundtrack. It improves upon the original in every possible way while staying true. There are some problems though, a couple tediously long backtracks, annoying sections, and inconsistent difficulty, but those are the extent of my nitpicks and accurate to the NES original. This is the epitome of what all game remakes should try to be.
