So I had a little bit of time yesterday and today and decided to finally play AreaX that I purchased from Zeiva at Otakon this year. I’m very sorry to say that while I really wanted to give this game a chance, the system pretty much prevented me from doing so and therefore ruined my experience overall. Btw this isn’t really a review of the game, but rather a commentary.
I wasn’t gonna review this but somehow during my commute to work the last few weeks I ended up unlocking every song in the game so I figured why not! Since this is just a music game there’s not really any spoilers so feel free to read on!
And so this is the 2nd party set of characters from your videogame! As usual our heroine ends up inside of it due to a “bug” but this time, a video game god comes out and tells her the bug excuse is all a coverup! If you complain to the programmers they’ll just lie out their ass and say that this is a bonus stage working as intended! ＼( ^o^)／ Our colorful cast this time includes a Paladin tank, a support/healer Dancer, and our 2 DPS’s Monk and Beastmaster!
Let’s be honest, this isn’t a sequel or an alternative Dia. This is really just Quin Rose trying to suck their remaining customer base dry by splitting the Dia game in half and releasing 2 separate games. This time, Boris, Julius, Gray, Nightmare and Ace get routes but after finishing the game I can definitely say they could have easily combined the 2 into 1 disk by simply cutting out all the fat. Anyway I think I’m going into my final thoughts in the intro paragraph so I’ll stop here :lol:. Basically Alice is once again in Clover no Kuni and she goes through the looking glass to find herself once again in the Country of Diamonds, with no recollection of any of the events that happened in the previous Dia game.
