This review is from: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
I was able to rent this game, because having not played the original, I had no idea what to expect. I knew it was some kind of video game novel, but that's pretty much where it ended. I also know that I tend to find the long exposition in Japanese RPGs very annoying. I try to skip ahead as much as possible...so I was pretty sure I wouldn't like this game, since I though it would be all exposition.

The one critical different to me is the characters are excellent, and all of the speech is voiced (vs. just text on the screen) which adds so much to the experience.

To me, this game is kind of like an MA version of the Prof. Layton games. It's not a corny little myster...it's a dark, maturely themed story that would make for a great serial television show...reminds me a bit of Lost.

The story is really the driving factor, and it's excellent. But the puzzles are also great. There's a sense of inevitability to the puzzles...I haven't felt completely lost yet...which is a good thing.

It is a perfect portable game to. You can save at anytime...put it down, and pick up without needing to remember the controls or what not.
