XBlaze Code: Embryo reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
XBlaze Code: Embryo is an interactive visual novel, which is presented as a kind of prequel to BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. But in fact, the game is quite an independent piece, and is mainly associated with BlazBlue only general terminology. The System of branching scenario in The game is not usual for visual novellas forks in the form of choice of the answer option. Instead, the main character uses the program TOi, which automatically picks him news on his interests. And Depending on what news you read or do not read, the plot will develop in one way or another. It is Recommended to get one definite ending first, but in 99% of cases all come to it, because they read everything. After you get one of the endings, the repeated passages under the news will be icons of characters that should tell you how to get this or that ending. The Plot and the order of passing the games of The series ideally before reading this novel I would advise to first read BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, well or at least just Continuum Shift, it has a retelling main storyline Calamity Trigger. But, as I have already written above, this novella is quite an independent story. So If you can't stand the gameplay in visual novels, then you can start straight with this game. The Plot of good tradition is quite twisted and has unexpected twists. But, unlike BlazBlue, after passing the game does not remain a sense of incompleteness of history. The Game has a clear and pronounced ending. But If you think this is not enough, the game has a sequel-XBlaze Lost: Memories, which among other things allows you to look at the history of the first part of XBlaze through the eyes of other characters. What should shed light on a number of details of the game. The Translation of the BlazBlue Series is "glorious" in that many terms in the English version had nothing to do with the original Japanese terms. But Despite the fact that XBlaze inherited some of them, the translation is much closer to the original. Here, even bounty hunters are called just bounty hunters, and not some of them are the Vigilantami [ru.wikipedia.org]. Who will be interested in this game? First of all, the game Is designed for fans of the series BlazBlue. If you liked the story of BlazBlue, then surely you will be interested to read and the story that occurred 150 years before the events of the first part. If you are not a fan of BlazBlue, but love the visual novels with unusual mechanics and intricate storyline, I can advise. Even as an independent work the game is quite interesting.
