The Caligula Effect: Overdose reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Caligula effect is a little strange beast: despite its obvious lack of budget that handicap the game still manages to some critical successes. On the side of the unpleasant surprises, one can cite the repetitive and ugly decorations, its long and ininterressant dungeons that one must redo 2 times each (sic) and a staging blurred that sometimes harms the good understanding of the action (especially at the beginning). For the good, we have the fascinating plot, the scenario well conducted with twists and turns, the characters who are all well written and surprising, and finally the original and well-ruined combat system. Basically, you can plan 3 actions as a result for each perso, with the possibility of "seeing" the future to make sure that the actions of the teammates are well synchronized and adapted to those of the enemies. The real question is can you support the repetitiveness of the game and cling to the scenario? Fortunately, the fights are simple (normal), the secondary quests to poop are one can no longer optional and the game has the common sense to let the players focus on the script if they want. On the other hand, do not listen to the reviews that compare the game to persona. No, that's really not the case. The closest to persona on PC remains (the excellent) TOKYO XANADU EX + that I warmly recommend. If you haven't already done so, then go take a look at it first and come back here if you want an extra ' of JRPG with Japanese students!

The Game came out very good and almost did not disappoint. Personally for me, as a fan of this universe, quite a long wait for the release of this game was fully justified. Pros of the game: + System of battles. It is very easy to learn, but it is very diverse: you need not just combine abilities, and select the necessary timings for effective interaction of several abilities of different characters among themselves. + Optimization. There is nothing to Optimize here, but it is still nice that similar games can be run on ancient machines with a decent fps. + Music. There is nothing to say, the songs μ beautiful. + Open World. Pity only a little bit of emptiness for its impressive size. Cons:-Graphics. The Graphics during the battle is far from ideal, but pleasing to the eye. For such a project is more than enough. But when getting out of the battle-the eyes hurt. A lot of pixel images instead of full 3D textures. For The 2019 of the year it is very bad. Fat minus. But the Game menu is very beautiful, there is nothing to say. Price. For such a project expensive. Content is not cheap. If There was such an insanely serious problem with graphics, then maybe her money would be worth it. Perhaps That's all I can say about the game at the moment. As I go through The review. The fact that there is no Russian localization is a bit sad. Bottom line: Still, not for a beautiful picture of this universe to me so much liked. And, despite the terrible graphics, the impressions of the game so far pleasant. Fans of this universe recommend to buy, the rest of the same recommend waiting for discounts.
