    There's nothing really deep being said about Rio Reincarnation, nor the other two visual novels in this package. The trilogy really is a series of straightforward, light-hearted, comedic (without being subversive or satirical), charming and simple stories, backed up with some of the most gorgeous fan service art you'll find. Sometimes that's all you need, and Tsunako really is a genius in her field.

    Idea Factory may have skimped a bit on narrative, but the visuals far exceed anything I’ve seen in any visual novel, and even most games that fall outside the genre. If this your first foray into dating sims, while the narrative can go all over the place at times, you’ll be so lost in the visuals of the world, you won’t mind where it takes you.

    DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation is a good visual novel with everything you might want: an intriguing story, tonnes of different endings, a great art style and cute anime girls. And considering it packs in three games in one, it’s a bit of a bargain for fans of the genre.

    DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation is great for fans of light novels, but especially for fans of the DATE A LIVE series. Even those who aren’t familiar with the series won’t be too confused with what’s going on, as the reading is easy and characters easy to like.

Точнее, сразу три игры. Помимо того, что здесь имеются наши любимые героини из аниме, также присутствуют оригинальные персонажи - Ринне, Мария, Марина и Рио, которые получились очень приятными и милыми. Сама история впечатляющая и трогательная. Будучи фанатом ранобэ и аниме, я очень довольна этими играми. Expand

    I hate to give this game such a low score. I love Compile Heart games AND Date A Live.

    That being said, this game is a massive disappointment.

    -Horrible Pacing. I.E. too many endings
    -The appeal of a lot of the games is route based only and the narrative suffers
    -The OST is either disappointing, obnoxious or just irrelevant to the story.

    Rinne Utopia: 4/10
    Arusu Install: 2/10
    Rio Reincarnation itself: 0/10

    Overall: 1/10

    Rinne Utopia is the best written out of the three. With a character we can love, empathize with and feel sad over. Problem is, we take so much to get through it all. Pacing is the death of Date A Live.

    Arusu Install deserves the "Hey, You Tried!" award. They tried some interesting concepts, such as Maria and what truly defines a human being (philosophically speaking, not literally).

    Rio Reincarnation is just member berry fan service.

    Anywho, skip this game, watch the Date A Live anime series, or if you're feeling frisky, read the LNs.
