    Groundbreaking and unforgettable, Danganronpa V3 is set to become one of the most relevant titles of the generation for many people. Supported by an intelligent and hilarious script, this visual novel presents the most delightfully complicated mysteries, and shocking plot twists that put in question philosophical concepts like the truth and reality.

    It’s difficult to say if Danganronpa V3 met my nearly unrealistic expectations, as even though much of the gameplay and story beats felt familiar, the true vision of V3 and how it ends has left me feeling conflicted in a way I have yet to fully digest. It’s an unforgettable journey full of love and betrayal- one that steps past the point of no return and bravely takes another leap forward to a world without hope or despair.

    An intriguing and at times exceptionally funny tale coupled with excellent gameplay makes for a great gaming experience. Thus it's not at all difficult to overlook the fact that Danganronpa V3 never really looks or feels like a current gen game.

    Even though it's not as fresh as it was back when the first chapter launched, the base concept around which Danganronpa V3 revolves is still very strong, and, aided by brilliant writing and strong character design, makes this visual novel hard to miss for all the fans of the genre.

    The most entertaining entry in the series to date. Aside from a few drops in its pacing, this is one of the most satisfying whodunnits on PS4 and Vita. [Dec 2017, p.86]

    Ultimately, Danganronpa V3 doesn’t add too much new to the series. But that’s okay – it doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel when the wheel we already have still rolls out eclectic characters and shocking moments so reliably. It’s a great rollercoaster of hope and despair with a climax that made me sit back and think about everything that just happened. The road to the end of Danganronpa V3 is long and twisted, but the ride is well worth it.

    Danganronpa is lunacy personified where games are concerned but does do a very good job in keeping the series going and make it accessible to newcomers, too. A crazy RPG experience.

    Love the characters, deaths, and executions. Some might say the trials were too long but I was too engaged to notice. I'll have to say thisLove the characters, deaths, and executions.

    I can fully understand why this game may be divisive among people. Some people thinking the twists were cheap, the class trials were too longI can fully understand why this game may be divisive among people. Some people thinking the twists were cheap, the class trials were too long and that they were not happy with where the game went in the end.
    But for me all that stuff worked. This game constantly left me wondering were it was going to go, it contains, in my opinion, some of the better twists and i found it insanely hard to stop playing, "i will just play for 5 for minutes" would always end with still plying hours later. My main problem with the Danganronpa series was that i always managed to pretty much guess the class trails result before they would happen, but with Danganronpa V3 i was still unsure who the blackend was even when it was time to vote.

    My main problem with this game however would be the characters..mainly the female characters. A lot of them are pretty one note and you don't start to see much growth until pretty late in the game. While ive always praised this series for managing to make you care if an "unlikable character" is killed, with this game there was a stage when i was really hoping some of them would be killed.
    However saying this, this game includes a few of my favourites characters of all time.

    In closing i can only imagine that if you are a fan of the previous games you will at least be able to appreciate this one even if the twists are not to youre taste. A game that keeps the Danganronpa series fresh.

    Danganronpa V3 is a game almost similar to Ace Attorney. It is also like watching Game of Thrones or Hunger Games. As you play you see moreDanganronpa V3 is a game almost similar to Ace Attorney. It is also like watching Game of Thrones or Hunger Games. As you play you see more and more of your friends (favorite characters) die. The story has an amazing story and a lot of plot twists. Though the game is not for everyone to enjoy, there are times when the game would be suddenly boring. But the game has new features and new mini games to enjoy. Expand

But I just can’t get my ahead around why. I’m sorry Japan, I love you but this one is just way beyond my taste. If you like ‘visual novels’ you might like Danganronpa V3: The Killing Harmony. Otherwise you will be much better served buying a game that actually is a game. Expand
