= AKA "Why Am I Playing This?"
= In a sentence: Not very good...
= ...But it'll keep you occupied. It has the Cavia mystery and intrigue that makes it probably the only thing worth playing; the plot is dark, the music is excellent, and the characters are interesting in a screwed up way.
= The gameplay manages to have less going for it than even NieR (mind you, NieR also didn't give a fuck about itself and copied about a dozen other titles to make "levels" interesting).
= Brr, Zero tries too hard to be tough. Where was the writer's head when he made dialogue for KainÃƒÂ©? I like the 'idea' of Zero's character, but I'm not sure I'm buying what she's selling.
= Dito, in a complete reverse of the norm, seems to be a victim of...
some sort of male rape/sex toying??
= Man, I miss the "pacts" the first title had; made using awesome mythical powers that much more interesting than HERE'S A DRAGON FOR YA. Nevertheless; Zero and Mikhail make a cute "perfect strangers
" team of moody bitch and sweet pet.
= I love the alt costumes. Sue me: I think it's awesome when you can pay for a new costume AND a stats perk.... In which case, Caim's outfit (D1) helps me incur extra carnage.
