A masterpiece, but make sure you know what a visual novel is first.

Summary: Intro: First thing's first, if you have not played 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, I recommend picking that one up for the Nintendo DS and playing through it first. It is still enjoyable without it, but you will be missing out on a lot since this is the second game in the Zero Escape series. Also, if you have never played a visual novel game, I recommend researching into that first, or read my review of 999 where I give a brief explanation.
Summary: The gameplay, the story, they were both amazing. When i was playing this game, I just had to keep on going. It was like reading a book, lol. The escape game and the novel section was really great. Reading + Puzzles <3 I will keep playing this game for a long time.
Summary: Already knew that I would like this game because I had read an LP of 999 and part of an LP about this game. LP is short for Let's Play, and I was reading screenshot and text LPs over at Something Awful. Anyway, the LP on VLR (this game) was going pretty slowly, so I decided to just buy the game and throw some money over in Aksys' direction. They more than deserve it for making great games like this.
Summary: It shouldn't be a secret to most that the actual gameplay of both this game and its predecessor, 999, consists of little more than an "escape the room'-type puzzle. Still fun and entertaining on their own as both puzzles and as a way to get to know the characters a little more but the meat of it all is the story. the betrayals. the mysteries. the intrigue.
Summary: I liked it a lot. Loved the story, the characters, how everything is priced together. You could stop after one end or you could get them all and learn the whole story. It's definitely not for people who want crazy action. The puzzles where fun too.
Summary: I love mystery/puzzle games and this one is a great title for the ps vita. It has quite a few endings depending on choices made during certain points in the game and you have the ability to see each and every ending. Once you complete one scenario, a decision tree is visible so that you can return to a previous point and make a different decision to see the new ending. All endings and decisions already made are visible so that you don't have the same experience twice.
