Cupid Parasite Review - Review

It’s the Battle and Peace of romance visible novels, in that it took me two months to complete it.

Often I can attain a reviewable state for an otome in per week to 10 days, so Cupid Parasite holds a doubtful distinction because the longest evaluate for a brief recreation I’ve ever completed. Between ready for a patch that apparently took three weeks to get by way of Nintendo lotcheck and probably not having time to clear it earlier than my vacation travels, it took roughly two months for me to get to the purpose of placing fingers to keyboard. Was it value it? Arduous to say, as a good romance story is held again by questionable controls and modifying points even post-patch.

Cupid Parasite is essentially set within the metropolis of Los York, which is supposed to be an amalgamation of main American cities (one distinguished landmark is a “Silver Gate Bridge”). Our heroine – default title Lynette Mirror – is ostensibly a “bridal advisor” on the matchmaking company Cupid Company, however is definitely the corporate’s namesake in an try to stay it to her father. She is challenged with marrying off 5 of Cupid Corp’s least enticing male members (the “Parasite 5”) whose obsessions make them utterly unsuitable for a typical relationship. Every suitor is designed to signify one of many forms of the color-wheel principle of affection, which is truthfully one thing I by no means knew about earlier than beginning. There’s a big group of aspect characters each named and in any other case, who find yourself all coming into play throughout a minimum of one of many romances, however the suitors present some neat depth when it comes time for his or her private tales. Though the sport is about in what is meant to be the US, a few of the terminology used (“share home”, most notably) felt a little bit misplaced within the story. I did respect the writing round emblems the sport employs, because it’s positively set within the modern-day with “Instergrimm”, “Wackypedia”, and different types of social media all being included.

Due to the T score, all nudity is above the waist.

There aren’t numbered chapters in Cupid Parasite as seen in different visible novels, however I believe the opening act (pre-route cut up) path is the longest I’ve performed in years. Regardless of that, there’s probably not many probabilities to begin down the love paths; by my rely there’s perhaps two probabilities per suitor earlier than the cut up. Quite a bit was made within the pre-launch concerning the “Love Match Check,” which exhibits what romantic path you’re alleged to be focusing on, however good luck figuring out that based mostly on 14 yes-or-no questions and not using a information. Second playthroughs enable a love kind to be immediately chosen; it’s value making the most of should you’re trying to see all the pieces. Three choices can be found by default for the ending, with the remaining suitors unlocking upon clearing the primary three and the sixth love kind solely unlocking upon getting the most effective ending on all 5 suitors (and notably, having no decisions in any way). The primary three routes are usually extra grounded in actuality, whereas the final three let the mythological freak flag fly at full mast and get a little bit exhausting at factors.

If this evaluate had come out even a few days in the past, it will have been based mostly on the launch model 1.0.0 and I’d be ripping it a brand new one on the technical elements. There have been two routes that I performed within the launch model that seemingly had a typo each different line, it was regularly unclear if the textual content was speech or inside monologue, and the sport would often freeze for just a few seconds longer than regular in a scene or textual content transition. The 1.0.1 patch re-edited the 2 questionable routes, although extra typos than I’d have anticipated got here up on the opposite routes anyway. The default controls additionally had been unclear: it took fairly some time to find fast save and cargo, the textual content log is discovered by hitting up on the left analog, and I regularly unintentionally swapped between “all skip” and “learn skip” whereas studying in handheld (which is how about ¾ of the sport performed out).

…how in Athena’s title do you allow a typo in a DIALOGUE CHOICE? This was mounted within the patch.

I do have to present credit score to Cupid Parasite as Los York is likely one of the most colourful settings I’ve seen in a novel recreation. Even my sister-in-law was impressed when she occurred to catch a glimpse of it. The town’s bursting with life, and although there are widespread backgrounds, they cycle by way of sufficient of them that it didn’t actually get boring. The characters are extremely enticing in each genres, although maybe it shouldn’t be stunning that the Roman gods are extra enticing than the suitors. This contains our protagonist. The music didn’t actually stand out a lot, although I did admit to being shocked when the unique English tracks from the Japanese model had been saved intact for a newscaster character. I shouldn’t have been; each single Otomate recreation on Swap is in Japanese voice solely, and that is no exception.

Now {that a} third of the sport isn’t sufficient to make my inside English instructor need to have somebody on the writer see me after class, I feel there’s a good effort in Cupid Parasite. There’s nonetheless typos which I’m turning into extra delicate to, and the controls are a bit irritating should you’re attempting to do something past advancing textual content, however it’s a novel tackle the legends of Cupid.
