This review is from: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward - Nintendo 3DS (Video Game)
Warning: There Will be Spoilers in this Review

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is a follow-up to 2010's 999: Nine Hours, 9 Peoples, 9 Doors. Having played 999 upon its initial release, I found myself loving it. When news of a sequel came, I was excited. This game, as much as I loved 999, exceeds it in every way. Based on the idea of the Prisoner's Dilemna, Virtue's Last Reward follows your character, Sigma, along with 8 other characters who are forced to play a game similar to the one established in 999. There is a twist however: the characters have the choice to either ally with other characters or to betray them.

The voice acting in this game is phenomenal. The puzzles, in my experience, having put in almost 15 hours, are more mind bending than 999. One thing that I appreciated was a set up similar to the old Choose Your Own Adventure novels. If you reach a point that leads to an undesirable outcome, you have the ability to jump back to an earlier point and try a different path.

In comparison to 999, VLR gives you a flow chart so that you can see what path you are on. The plot twists are constantly changing. Characters whom you chose to ally with in one path may choose to betray you in another. People that you come to trust will betray you at times in pursuit of their own interests.

Overall, there are 24 different endings. This game will keep you playing and guessing in terms of what exactly is going on. I HIGHLY recommend the game to anyone who played 999 and enjoyed it as well as anyone who enjoys a good story as well as a good mystery. On another note, I do recommend playing 999 as there are certain ties that this game has to its predecessor.
