Well, I just finished the entire game, and it was very enjoyable! And now for the review...
Graphics - Overall, I thought the graphics were pretty nice. It was kinda neat how each of the three primary locations in the game seemed to have an overall color scheme of some sort, although I'm not quite sure if there are special meanings behind them. As for the character(s)
, it looks like mikey's affinity towards glasses-donning girls strikes again! As Zeta stated earlier, it looked like some of the lines could stand to be a bit thicker.
Is it just me or did Lai and Hiroka look strikingly similar? Aside from hair color, that is.
Sound - I really liked the music for this game. It seemed to fit the current mood extremely well, especially the tune that is played during silly/perverted moments. Combined with the situations that occur during that song, I can't help but snicker everytime I hear it pop up. Also, I particularly enjoyed the variations on the title song. (Go techno remix!)
Story - Wow... If you just looked at the overall story by itself, it was a rather simple, yet touching, one. However, the execution made it much better. Once all of the pieces fall into place, everything made sense and seemed to fall into place rather nicely. I also liked the overall attitude of the main character in TT, which contrasts greatly with those of the leads in the other ATP games.
My initial impression was that Lee and Han were two different people linked by the same destiny - "both" were teachers who fell in love with similar-looking people. Imagine my surprise when it wasn't the case.
Personally, I preferred the Lai ending. Sacrificing someone else's happiness for my own doesn't sit well with me.
To refute Zeta's complaint about the execution, the choices that lead to the correct paths are mostly connected and logical. I remember mikey posting somewhere that it's all
about the indicator. So the probability of getting past Story 1 and Story 2 could be at least 1/4 if the correct mindset is used.
However, the second choice required for the "respect" ending of Story 2 ("... is taking my work time" or something to that effect) didn't seem to fit the mindset very well.
As for the dialog, I think the age limit could actually be as low as 16+. From my experience, that type of speech seems to be somewhat common among high schoolers. In fact, it may even be heard within middle school since kids seem to be getting corrupted at an earlier age nowadays. -.-;
Overall - Great game! It's hard to believe that it was created within a month unless it was worked on non-stop. There were a few spots with typos throughout the game as well as a couple spots where the wrong character is associated with the dialog in the ending. However, they didn't detract much from the final experience.
