A blog for reviews… that's really not much of a blog

Release Date: May 16, 2003

VNDB Link: http://vndb.org/v17

Game Type: Novel

Summary: The fantastic underwater park created inside an Ocean… Several members gather around, and enjoy the attractions. However, something goes wrong and a certain group of members find themselves trapped underwater. They find several places of the park damaged and flooded, and must make their choices carefully and work together to get out. However…

There is more problems than just getting out…

Story Length: Long. (30 hours)

Story Completion Difficulty: Moderately Hard

Comments: Very first Visual Novel, so I ended up using a walkthrough. Now, if I played this, I could complete the entire game without much problems, but that’s from several years of playing =P

Character Design Rating: 6/10

Story Rating: 10/10

Game Quality: Moderate

Overall Rating: 9/10

Comments: All I can say while playing this game was that I was mindfucked so many times. Minus the spoilers, this is a great game that is certainly worth being translated, and is filled to the brim with heartwarming moments, great humor, and nervous breakdowns.

Sexual Content: None

Translations: English & Other

Translation Rating: 9/10. Replaying this game with my knowledge of Japanese, the translators did a surprising job at effective translation while keeping the Japanese meaning in place; this is very hard to do.

Related Media: None

Comments:

Well, very first Visual Novel that really left an impression on me. With a great storyline, I was constantly excited to find out what happens next. This is a definite MUST for all players, since it has a great storyline along with English translations. Any more would probably spoil it for you, so I’ll shut up for now.

 Here’s a great Music Video related to this game if you finished it already:

I personally found it nicely made, and give kudos to the creator x3

Affection for the Characters: High.

Music Quality: Moderate
