Period Cube is a good otome visual novel with great visuals, interesting characters, and nice music but one with a derivative and cheesy story that let it down.

Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~ is a great Otome visual novel on PlayStation Vita with a solid story, great graphics and a ton of content to experience. If you're a fan of the genre, then you're going to love this entry. But even if you're not a fan, this PS Vita release is the perfect entry point into Otome so that you can see what all the fuss is about.

Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~ brings an overdone premise with a reasonable romance. Despite its lack of innovation, it's still a pleasant experience for fans of the genre that have been waiting for more until now.

Outstanding production values, smooth technical features and entertaining romantic entanglements go a long way towards making this Otomate title a pleasure to play; but the lack of overriding originality, and falling back on some of the stock filler props of the VN genre, hold it back from being a truly innovative iteration in the crowded field of stories of players imprisoned in a virtual world. Not every game needs to be innovative, however, to provide thoughtful entertainment, and Period: Cube most certainly provided me with that in good measure.
