    Chaos Child is an excellent visual novel that expands even more the Sci Adv universe with a suspense story that absorbs the player in the crimes of Shibuya.

    Chaos;Child is a great example of a visual novel done right. Its interesting and engaging storyline keeps you wanting more, with the characters lifting an already good game to another level. Some dynamics miss the mark slightly, but ultimately add to the bigger picture and widen the scope of the plot in general, so they're worth persevering with across multiple playthroughs.

    A visual interactive novel in the same vein as Steins;Gate and almost equally brilliant. Deep and unique in every way.

    As someone who really enjoyed Chaos;Head, I really, really wanted to like Chaos;Child. And there are a number of things I do like about it: the cast is fun, the core mystery is gripping, and the level of gore, while not for the faint of heart, is on par with a Sion Sono flick (nasty and weird, but not wholly distasteful). However, its preoccupation with padding its length with the same tired tropes and non-consensual sexual fantasies makes it tough to recommend to any but the most devoted Science Adventure Series fans. Please 5pb, hire a copy editor.

    Chaos;Child is a deviously clever visual novel from start to finish. It plays the reader like a fiddle by presenting all the ingredients for a mystery novel, but without some of the necessary tools to solve it. A megalomaniac mystery fan will look for a logical solution finding none as the important pieces are hidden away from the protagonist, and by extension, the reader. It might seem insane and risky, but it works extremely well and creates a memorable read that, while perhaps annoying for some due to certain choices made during the prose, will impress many others. Like most visual novels, it is not a crowd-pleaser, but for the intended audience it is a must read, and one that will not easily be forgotten.

    If you’re at all lacking in patience then Chaos;Child isn’t the game for you. At its core, it’s a smart murder mystery with a cast of engaging, sympathetic characters, enough shocking, unpredictable twists and a story that will take you to some very dark places. But tackling the game can be like wading through treacle; almost as if the game doesn’t trust you to “get” it unless it explains everything in explicit, unnecessary, faintly patronising detail.

    Ну что, готовы ли вы узнать что такое Chaos;Child. В первую очередь нужно понять что происходят события на мировой линии SG 1.048596 с труНу что, готовы ли вы узнать что такое Chaos;Child. В первую очередь нужно понять что происходят события на мировой линии SG 1.048596 с тру энда новеллы Steins;Gate. Как и все новеллы в КагакуАДВ Чайлд может показаться в начале очень странным, но не стоит заблуждаться, ваше ожидание окупится более чем сполна. Планка качества Чайлда если не самая высокая, то явно на уровне S;G.

    Писать про сюжет смысла нет уже в третий раз, так как подобные твисты и датфилы нужно пережить каждому лично, не по рассказам и уж тем более не по отзывам. Однако хочу заметить, тут самая жесткая судьба протагониста среди всей серии. Графика для новеллы просто сногсшибательна, на данный момент лучшая во всей КагакуАДВ. В самые крушиал моменты новеллы начинает играть Di Sword of Sadness от великого Takeshi Abo и вместе с происходящим на экране игрок определенно теряет голову и желание играть дальше пока данный ост не закончитсяплавно перейдет в Visible Essence.

    Расписывать что либо еще нет желания, сюжет должен знать каждый кому интересно культурное достояние человечества и что в нем будет через 50-100 лет, Чайлд врывается туда на самом острие Ди-меча, 1010

    Although prone to tired Japanese VN tropes at times, the story features enough twists and turns to keep things interesting.
