Roommates Critic Reviews

While the stat-raising portion was sometimes frustrating, and the background music did occasionally become annoying, I found Roommates an enjoyable experience on the whole. I’m looking forward to replaying the game and hopefully reaching the ideal ending with every character. The progressive stories are fun to follow and the characters are oddly compelling. I’m not sure I’d have paid £20 for it, but at the time of writing it’s on sale, so I’d still recommend giving it a go if you’re a fan of the visual novel/simulation genre!

In general, it is difficult to recommend Roommates. On the one hand, the work is quite engaging as a slice of life filled with humor. On the other hand, the gameplay choices and the use of stereotypes and prejudices can be quite unpleasant. Even though I had a lot of fun with the game and found it a reasonable example of the genre, there are better examples of visual novels and simulators on the Switch.
