The definitive version of a true modern classic. Steins;Gate presents a truly captivating and uncompromising storyline with exquisite characters, powerful themes and often heartbreaking choices to make. It's a beautiful, essential thing.
Was skeptical going stepping into a Visual Novel game not being a huge fan of Anime, and having never played a 'game' of this type before.
Well when I got the low battery warning on my vita at the end of playing my first session, I realised that 5 hours had gone by and I was hooked.
Well worth the admission price for this; 5 different ending and a great bunch of subtle differences throughout during different playthroughs!
Recommend this highly if you feel like a bit of a change of pace from more 'twitchy action' games.
This is the best story i have ever experienced in any entertainment medium either it be books, movies, games etc.. and i almost missed it because the first hours of the game i did not understand at all so i almost didn't finish it
Even though Steins;Gate has some interactive components that allow you to impact the story's outcome, it's important to know that it's possible to go for hours at a stretch here and never have the opportunity to do anything more than press X to advance the text.
This is an amazing game. The sci-fi story is great, the character are great and the music fit every situation. I have the main theme playing in my head as i write this. This game was an intense roller coaster of emotion, it was painful sometime.
10/10 perfect visual novel. Steins;Gate was, and still is, my favourite anime of all time, coupled with the movie ending I think it will end up being regarded as a modern classic in the coming years. How does the visual novel that inspired it all stack up then? It surpasses the anime leaps and bounds - a resounding triumph of visual novel storytelling. By giving you the freedom to fully explore all the other (lesser/bitter-sweet - to downright heartbreaking) story paths and endings, it makes the one true ending that much more impactful. If I could give it an 11/10 I would. BUY IT.
A game WORTH 100%-ing. Seriously, do yourself a favour and FULLY explore it. It's beautiful.
Yes, this is simply the best Visual Novel game I have ever played, and one of the best story driven games. It starts of slow but in time it evolves into something amazing. I just cant praise it enough, I love the story, characters, graphics, overall sound (music, voice acting).
It makes me want to review all my previous scores on metacritic, because it deserves higher score than 99% of all other games I've played (but I'm to lazy to do that :D). And the fact, that it's VN makes this game an instant ageless classic.
If you don't like reading - just skip this, even this is so amazing if you don't like reading you would probably don't enjoy this - otherwise if you want to read amazing story, you are at the right place here. Steins Gate is really amazing visual novel which will devour you. The story has multiple different endings which give you easily over 30 hours of very interesting reading. The good thing is that Steins Gate is really catchy from start to the end. Definitely a must for everyone who likes good stories at least a bit . Steins Gate is amazing Visual Novel in every way. The only thing that could be a bit better was gameplay. Work with mobile was nice but there could be something a bit more. Not that other VNs would be better in term of actual gameplay. But still... that is nothing that could drop overall score even for 1 point. This is real masterpiece. One of the best visual novels! (And not just in the West!)
