Critic Reviews for Yurukill: The Calumniation Games

Solid and definitely have an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.

Combining such different things seems like a bad idea, but Yurukill manages to convince us that his mix of genres fits perfectly. But the best thing is that it manages to stand out in all aspects, which means that we are facing a great novel visual ... and a fantastic shoot 'em up.

Hard to be categorical with Yurukill. The shoot'em up phases are pleasant, the story is generally interesting, even if the ending will tend to disappoint, and it is quite satisfying to see the characters evolve over the course of our investigations.

While not up to the level of its inspirations, Yurukill: The Calumniation Games is an enjoyable visual novel that does an excellent job of merging its storytelling with shoot 'em up gameplay.

Yurukill: The Calumniation Games is a game of ups and downs. It's a good visual novel with an interesting story and an intriguing cast, but misses the mark in the puzzle/shoot'em up sections. The end result is a game with no balance, interesting for those looking for a visual novel with an intriguing story, to be avoided by those who want to enjoy an exciting gameplay experience.

The only issue we had with Yurukill was that it never felt like it went far enough. It's a compelling tale and it moves at a brisk pace, but it lacks the malicious edge of a Danganronpa or the brain-breaking narrative of a Zero Escape. By the time it's all said and done, we'd enjoyed our time with it, but we were a mite disappointed that it didn't push us harder.
