Like many of Aksys other North American ports, Code:Realize has a few typos scattered throughout the game (particularly, the word "whining", which is spelled as "whinging"). However, they were infrequent enough. After playing a few otome games, one might start to get a bit bored of similar descriptors, scenarios, and archetypes. This game does little to break away from the genre; the characters are easily summarized archetypes prevalent in all otome games, the scenarios reflect those of other otome games, and the descriptors, especially of dangerous situations, are also very similar. They follow a standard arc: the dangerous situation is able to exist because the protagonist goes off alone, but she is saved by her love interest (if later in the game) or the group as a whole (if earlier in the game), in which case, she apologizes for trying to do everything herself. I can't recall a specific instance that you can save yourself through your choices or that you are the one doing the saving. Not exactly a unique issue within the otome genre, but still one I'd like to address.
The art was top notch, like other Aksys games, with lovely color, beautiful CGs, and pleasant music. The clothes and interface style is somewhat reminiscent of early 1900s Europe with steampunk elements (gears, steam machines, non-parallel technology, etc). The characters were all interesting, and their background stories were also really well done. However, I wasn't as interested in Lupin's as I expected to be, considering that his route was the "unlockable" one. I liked the story and female protagonist more than other similar games because she is able to protect herself, pick locks, and perform many other tasks to ensure her own survival, versus just being pretty and waiting to be saved.
It does get repetitive in trying to finish all the routes, but hey that's normal with these types of games. The voice actors are all amazing and Suwabe is also here which is another plus for me. The art is amazing, each route is different and touching. There are extra scenes that are adorable/hilarous that are worth the purchase.
Definitely recommend it if you've been on the fence about getting it. I was on the fence and then just went and bought it. No regrets.
Without spoiling anything: This game takes place in a steam punk version of London. Its very pretty, visually and the music is very catchy (i found myself hearing the songs in my sleep bc i played the game for literally 12 hours straight...Its good ok:] ). You meet some hot guys...and learn about them all as you go. You can figure out which one you want to "romance" after just a few sentences.. (but lets be honest we want to romance Lupin!) Only thing that i can complain about is that you cant romance lupin until you romanced ALL the other characters! But I see why they did that, bc they want you to play the whole story and not just give up after one run.
You will find yourself wanting to play all the routes, because the story really comes together as a whole and makes the most sense after you finish all the main routes. (and Lupin's ending is the best). If you like visual novels, and hot anime guys... just get it! :)
If I had any cons to it then maybe it would be this one guy's route, Impey Barbicane, because I felt like his story didn't delve deep into anything like what Impey is like for example. We didn't learn much about his character except a few things but barely mentioned again later. We didn't really learn much about mc in his route or learned anything new. It felt like the route evolved mostly around the antagonist, Nemo, I learned more about him than the guy I'm trying to romance. Which was a shame cause Impey was my favorite character in the prologue.
But other than that, I love this game, not much otome has made an impact like this for me. If you're a fan of both action and romance, interesting story, and/ or steampunk themes then I highly recommend this game.
