Long story short, this is one of the most complete games on Newgrounds.

The dialogue sequences remind me of those in Fire Emblem; the layout, topics of discussion and the ways of expression are very similar, with a good balance between humour, relationships and storytelling. For a flash game, the depth of the characters and the amount of dialogue are staggering, so it's a good job that they were well though out. There are a few typos, but I really couldn't be less bothered about those. I think dialogue is one one of your strong points, and consequently the best part of the game - to the point of me not skipping anything intentionally. I made a few double-clicks by accident, so it would have been nice to see what had been said previously in addition to what was being said at the moment.

The storyline was also really solid. I did feel like some twists came too much out of the blue, but I'll gladly overlook that as well. "Real" video games have those moments as well, but there they can be easier to conceal under a larger cast and more things going on, which are hardly viable in Flash games. Most Flash games don't aspire to deep storylines anyway. This game proves that they should, and that they could.

Frankly, the shooting was the weakest part of the game. It felt repetitive, mostly due to the reused bosses and lack of really special enemies. The RPG elements (critical hits, dodging etc.) didn't feel like they made that much of a difference, and in general everything just felt like any old sidescrolling shooter. Which, while not particularly great, really isn't too bad either.

So there we go. Even the weakest bits of the game weren't terrible at all. On the whole, a job well done.

Oh, and did I mention the soundtrack is great? I don't think I did. The soundtrack is great.

I loved this game in every way. It's long, fast upgrades coming at you, and so much dialogue! I loved all the endings and this is probably one of my best shooter games because of the unique upgrading and new weapons given. Very great job on this game!

Best internet game, period.

This is the best internet game i have ever played, and quite possibly one of the best i have played period. This is the only game i have ever reviewed, because it was the only one that ever compelled me too. The music was fantastic, but couldve used more variety in certain areas, the gameplay was great, the storytelling was some of the best i have ever seen, and the game really made me care for all the characters. I have currently just finished my first playthrough and the ending was great, and having seen them all, is true for almost every ending, though some are better than others. I am so glad to haved come across this game and will probaly still be playing it for awhile to come to get alternate endings, namely the special one. I love this game, and sincerely hope that there is a sequel that will be even better. If there was a rating for "best game on newgrounds", or anywhere for that matter, this one has my vote hands down. Great job.

Graphic novel emphasis on novel

Already played through about 5 minutes of it and I am mighty impressed by the story already and am working up to the point where I am comfortable with the actual gameplay. I can't wait to play this through, though, it seems like it will take a while if i do spend my time reading through the intertwining stories. Anyhow Based on story alone This game already earns my respect. Now if only I had the means to play this at home.
