XBlaze Code: Embryo
A great game, if you're intelligent.
Don't buy a visual novel if you don't want to read. Simple as that. I can't believe that people would complain about a good game because they didn't read the reviews or look up the game.
Everything misleads with this one
The Blazblue games have always had a decent mix of gameplay and visual novel. But Chrono Phantasma was pretty light on the gameplay which should've been a warning for this. I just started playing this and immediately realized that this was practically a pure visual novel. When you start the game, it doesn't take you to the main menu so you could do training like in Blazblue. The game just starts. Now, while I have no problem with visual novels and wish we could get more here in the U.S. especially the Fate series, I wish Aksys and Arc System had marketed this game for what it is. A book that you have to press "X" every three lines. Not a game with combat in it. This "game" is for hardcore fans of the Blazblue universe. This isn't a good intro for new players, players that actually want a game, or for anyone who doesn't want to waste money.
It is a good game for people who have played a lot of VN games. the gameplay is decided by reading articles on TOI, not by standard three line choice. Only minus i could find is it should have more cutscenes other than the opening, don't listen to the others if you are a VN fan and haven't even played BBlazeBlue it is a good game.
WARNING this is not a game
There is zero game play just 2 hrs of reading the end do not waste your money just watch it on you tube for free
