    As for any other problems…basically, it really all comes down to what you're expecting to do with the game. Again, Xblaze Code: Embryo is a visual novel, and it takes that descriptor very seriously.

    If you’re a fan off the BlazBlue series, pick up a copy. If not, then you may want to avoid it unless a visual novel is exactly the experience you’re looking for.

    XBlaze - Code: Embryo isn't the most offensive visual novel I've ever played, but it's ultimately dragged down by a lackluster story, dull characters, and the infuriating TOi system.

    All in all, you're left with a visually appealing visual novel that doesn't really have a strong enough protagonist to carry it.

    XBlaze would be thoroughly unremarkable if not for its utter—and possibly record-breaking—contempt for the player. If you're interested in visual novels as a genre, the Vita has a handful of titles significantly better than this one. And if you're somehow compelled to explore the rich back story of the BlazBlue universe, there's always fan fiction.

    If you do not like visual novels much then this is just waste of time, otherwise this is readable, but nothing special. XBLAZE's graphic isIf you do not like visual novels much then this is just waste of time, otherwise this is readable, but nothing special. XBLAZE's graphic is really good, main idea of plot is not bad, quite typical for fantasy genre tho. Unfortunately protagonist is really weak, the main plot is really slow and filled with many stupid dialogues, the new TOi system is just annoying more than anything. Overall it is not completely bad, but it is not good either. I hope we will get more good novels for west Vita, because currently there is nothing much to choose from.
