To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Some people complained that the title has bad grammar. Let me explain. This was done on purpose. It's to clue us in on the fact that the world we are about to enter is messed up.
Pros. I love the art style and the colors. It looks like traditional water colors mixed with digital. The music is something I can definitely chill to. The Switch version is not censored like the PS4 version. If you want an uncensored version this is version to get. Unfortunately Sony decided to go all SJW Woke on us. Please see some of my screen shots. Yep no censorship detected on the Switch version.
The voice acting is pretty solid. The keychain is adorable! I like how it can be used as a purse charm or a phone charm as well. Oh and FYI the Keychain is inside the game case! The art book is pretty damn cool as well. Like I said before the art is good. It also contains bios for each of the characters.
The meh. The story isn't bad. It can be a little fan servicey at times. Some folks may consider the main protagonist boring with little to no personality. But you have to keep in mind that this guy is meant to be "you".
Cons. No English dub. English text only with Japanese dub. Just a little FYI. Final thoughts.
This game is a Mature rated Visual Novel. It's not for everybody. It's not like an X rated movie, more like a R rated movie. A lot of innuendo but nothing explicit. This game may bore some gamers because there are no action sequences. If you are planning on getting this game, I highly recommend getting the Day One Edition if you can, because you get more bang for your buck. The Day One Edition has an art book and a keychain. It costs the same amount as the regular and digital versions.
(No Spoilers) Our World is Ended is a visual novel that puts you in the shoes of an intern at a video game developer. Your character is supported by a cast of fellow employees who consist of- perverted middle aged man, over the top man, goth girl, angry girl, clumsy cute girl, and smart young pretty girl. At this development studio, you will participate in helping the company create a new VR game, which glitches and cause the real world and video game world to collide. You will have to work with your team to figure out what is going on, and how to make things right again. For those interested, there are plenty of boob jokes to go around in this game.
The art work in this game is spectacular and I love looking at these character models and environments. The voice acting is great, but it is Japanese, so you will be reading a lot. The only issue I had was the font size, which was very small in handheld mode.
The Day One edition comes with an art book, which is a plus so pick it up! Overall I would recommend this VN.
One of my favorite games of all time. I just beat the game and received all the endings so I believe I'm qualified to talk about this wonderful game. Its a visual novel (no real gameplay, it depends on dialogue choices/decisions) and follows Reiji Gozen and Judgement 7, a group of game developers who mysteriously are trapped in a VR world which seems to be based on the games they have created before. Despite the seemingly simple (if not kind of cliched) premise, the game is far from it. I won't spoil anything, but theres a lot more to it than meets the eye and you will find yourself laughing, crying, and whispering "what the hell just happened" frequently :)
What I loved about it: -Art: I don't think I need to repeat it like everyone else here has done, but the art direction and style is outstanding. Its bright and vivid with a watercolor vibe to it. Plus I love the character designs. -Memorable Characters: I really loved the personality of each character. Unfortunately, I have heard many people complain that one of the characters is too perverted and makes too many sexual jokes. Look - I understand people get uncomfortable sometimes from jokes like that. However, the jokes are all in good fun and not directed to demean or do anything offensive really - its meant to make you (the player) laugh with your friends. We all have that horny friend in our groups (maybe thats you) and that's just life. Who wants to play a game where each character is predictable and boring? Each character in the game is strange in their own way and thats perfectly fine - if anything, its more realistic than what people give it credit for. Plus, and I won't spoil anything, you learn that people are more than the surface/nuances (something many reviewers tragically overlooked while playing this game). Story: I said it above earlier, but the fact that it was unpredictable is a huge bonus in my eyes. When you can predict how the story will go, the game becomes a slog and significantly more boring. When its unpredictable, thats when it can get you to tears, get you to laugh, get you to experience a wide range of emotions. Not only that, but when you play it (and get the true ending), you will understand and appreciate how complex the game is. Voice Acting: No joke, these voice actors are insanely talented - holy cow. You can tell how skilled they are when there are painful/emotionally intense moments that are just amplified by the the voice actor's talent. Additionally, each character has a very pleasant voice that I could listen to all day (and I mean that seriously, you'll know what I mean when you play it).
What could have been improved upon: -More art: The game is pretty long. It took me 30-ish hours to beat it/get the true ending. As a result, I wish there were more artwork spread out only because its so good and I felt some scenes would've been even better if there was a memorable piece of art associated to it. -Too Little Music: I never got tired of the music, but I imagine some people might. There are around 27 tracks I believe so it won't get boring, but again its like 30-ish hours so it might feel overplayed for some. -Feels pointless at times: I will admit, there was like 2 moments where I kind of felt like: 'ok, sigh, here we go again'. Keep in mind, Persona 4 golden is one of my favorite games of all time and I felt the same way at certain points of that game too :P. It doesn't necessarily detract from the game because as it continues you forget you even felt that way, but still I have to add that disclaimer. Typo's: It happens sometimes and while it doesn't really detract from the game (sometimes I didn't even notice), it is there. I would just ignore it when it happens but again, it exists unfortunately. There isn't an excuse and I wish Pqube looked over it once more but thats reality I guess :p Cringe(?): I know some people play games like these and they may call it "cringey". While I really don't like that word, there were a couple of moments that some people might cringe (and this is because of how strange the characters are, not necessarily about poor translation/localization in my opinion). Weirdo's are always kinda cringy (and thats ok, i'm a probably considered a weirdo by some people is my guess) so who cares :)
PS: Sorry for the wall of text guys, but seeing a great game get less than 5 stars frustrates the living hell out of me. I hope you agree with my assessment but again, people are different and thats completely ok. Enjoy :)
This game gets a lot of criticism for being a little too (ahem) risqué. Some of that is valid, but those critics are overlooking that it’s also one of the more creative, original visual novels to come out in the past few years. The story is actually pretty solid, and you’ll likely not meet a cast of characters this colorful in many other Switch otome titles.
Alright, so I buy this game and open it up. Everything looks nice and dandy until I realize that the box doesn't come with the "key-chain" that is advertised. So I dig through the box like five times, thinking I dropped it or something. Still nothing. I then asked for a replacement which the store kindly did without question. However, when the replacement came, I STILL didn't receive my key-chain. It was nowhere to be found!
Everything arrived in perfect condition and on time. The art book is colorful and Interesting with lots of great artwork. The game itself is a great visual novel game with an interesting story and memorable charcters I’m loving it so far.
Extremely interesting and otaku-core VN. The character are instantly likeable and that is all you really need in this game. Only problem is the writting sometimes can feel drawn out and definitely could have been condensed into a 20 hour experience instead of 30 hours. If you like the precious feeling of hanging out with well fleshed out characters and have around 35 hours to 100% the game to spare then it is a recommended for me. Also the artbook is fairly nice to have because the art style is extremely iconic and pretty.
