Euphoria Impression

God dang it, this is way better than I expected. After I read the review of Belucre and Nargrakhan, I expected a dark guro with a good story, not a mindfuckery in a grand scale. At a first glance, Euphoria looks like a Saw-clone with the game and all. I have the same impression for some times while playing it. The game is still very good though, I really like the inner conflict in the main character especially. It gets even better as the focus of the game shifts from rape humiliation to life-and-death situation where everyone in the game shows their badassery, and again, special mention to the awesomeness of the protagonist.

The Game

But then, as I progressively enter my first route, Rinne, something happens. At first I was confused and was like “what the hell happened?”. As I read and read and read again and again, I’m greeted with the myriad of plot twists that are just so unexpected and random (in a good way) that are just mind-boggling. I can’t even say how much I really agree with the beforementioned reviewers, that the game is not everything this VN has to offer.

The protagonist just wants to be with her… Why fate is so cruel 😦

The only complaint I have is the ending is a bit of a downer. It doesn’t tie up the many questions perfectly, but they might be answered in the true route I guess. Oh well. Now, excuse me, I have to read the second route now, as in NOW. Good day 🙂

    Are you playing this in Japanese? If not, where could a guy find the translation patch? You’ve got me interested!

      Er, nevermind. Lol, read those other reviews and this one doesn’t sound like my cup of tea.

        Understandable. This gem is all about walking through the landmines first (extreme nukige) before you arrive at the epic part (true route). Most people cannot stomach the former part 😦 Maybe I should emphasize those parts more in the review later.
