I briefly touched upon this on my twitter a few weeks ago but I decided to finally write a post after playing it for about a month.
This game or whatever you want to call it terrible so this review will be short, bitter and without any spoilers. Why no spoilers? Because there’s nothing to spoil, there’s no real story. The plot requires you, a faceless gacha premade heroine to pick a MatsuNEET and get him a job by the end of the game.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Nothing like spending it with your 2D mans right? So because all the terrible vita otome games that I’ve suffered through lately and with the delay of Taisho Alice FD, I’ve fallen back on more mobile apps by getting a bunch of Osomatsu apps that were released over the past year. I picked up PazuMatsu, Hesokuri Wars, Osomatsu Sanpo and TabiMatsu which I’ll be reviewing after the jump!
So everyone is probably wondering what the hell this game actually is. Is it a sequel? A fandisk? A remake? Broccoli couldn’t figure this out either so they made it an all in one disaster. The game takes place as if the previous game never happened – it’s one giant reset. The difference is, this time the “main” chunk of the game are the 4 sub characters: Akira, Dionysos, Thor & Melissa. Meanwhile, all the previous gods just get a half assed route similar to the Rainbow route in Utapri All Star. Anyway more complaints in the final thoughts, but for now enjoy the copy pasta that is this game. For anyone who hasn’t played the first game basically Yui is just thrown into god school to teach the gods about humans and love and she just accepts it cause her life on earth has little value apparently.
After god knows how many years of delays, Otomate finally released Brilliant Blue…however now that I finally got to play it, the delays are a mystery to me when all the common route/stat raising/date system is a copy pasta template of Passion Pink! Literally I just sat there force skipping through almost every “family” scene because it was dejavu from the previous game. Some scenes I sat through simply because it has been such a long time since I played PP that I didn’t actually remember if I saw them or not. Despite the copypasta, the individual brothers were still enjoyable for what it’s worth and while it took me a bit getting used to, eventually the system became pretty easy to go through. With improvements such as saving during choices as well as using quick save/quick load unlike last time, this time it was smooth sailing. Anyway on to Ema’s brocon adventures!
