  1. If you're a fan of fantasy novels, RPGs, Choose Your Own Adventure, Harry Potter, life simulators or all of the above, Academagia will probably feed your need while not draining your bank account (at least, not until you're hooked and the next four games come out).
  2. If you grew up with posters of Merlin on your wall and you're the type who used to sprint to the book store every time a new Choose Your Own Adventure came out, Academagia is the spellbinding RPG you've been waiting for.

It is somewhat interesting, it does provide a random sequence, so the games play a little differently, but its still canned and bound to repeat. If you like those reading adventures and that Harry Potter atmosphere, this is a game for you. you will even feel like Harry Potter in his first film, feeling utterly clueless and overwhelmed, wondering if your classes are actually providing you with the correct skills you need to pass your grades. You will likely end up repeating the game to correct your mistakes. The school sequence is short of the full term, it looks like you will either need to buy an addon or wait for updates to finish the game... its actually unclear which. The multi-adventures are casually interesting, keep in mind there is no action, this is all reading material with an accounting program to keep track of all your gains through your schooling. I think if they added pictures/artwork to enhance the reading, it would be a bit more polished and hold more interest to a wider audience. I also think the game should be purchased at a lower price. If you like reading and Harry Potter, get this when it goes on sale. I give it 6, as first its incomplete as it stands, they could have enhanced it with more visuals, and they could have put some kind of tutorial together to provide an understanding of the requirements of the students by the end of each semester.
