How good is Virtue's Last Reward?

I wouldn't give it higher than a 9.0, if that.

It's a good game though, to be sure.

Going from the demo, maybe a 7 at best (since it's supposedly one of the worst parts of the game... if not, a 6 to 6.5).


Don't be ignorant

I like to judge books entirely based on the third chapter of the book and nothing else.

id give it a 6.5/10.
pros: good puzzles, good voice acting, nice mechanics with the story chart.
cons: too much recycled music from 999, too much recycled plot from the infinity games, plot twists beat a dead horse, and overall game lacks any closure.

9.9, easily.

Going from the first ten minutes of The Usual Suspects, I thought it was a pretty average movie. 7/10

I only played the demo. so far i'm intrigued in the story, but I think the game itself isn't for me.

Except he's right on most counts (dunno about the recycled music thing). Frankly, it wasn't as thrilling as 999, and if you've played Ever17 or its prequels, you would have seen several things from a mile away. This author is a bit of a one trick pony. However, he's done a great job of leaving so much to write about for the third game. For that I applaud him
