Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth's strengths aren't entirely justified by the sheer amount of time it would take to experience them in full, but anyone that's already willing to give it that time - or those who come in with properly calibrated expectations - will find an entertaining saga that's worth seeing through.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Turth is, once again, a mediocre visual novel riddled with sexual (and barely related) content that makes almost imposible to feel confortable playing. Once again the combat system is forgotten by dozens of hours of dialogue making Mask of the Truth only accesible for true lovers of the franchise.

A worthy conclusion and a fantastic follow up to Mask of Deception that is a must play for visual novel fans on Vita.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth offers further content in the franchise. While the narrative base has an intrigue all its own, the vehicle by which it's received has flaws that can't be ignored. It's a visual novel with limited combat and some peculiar choices that somehow finds its way to a stellar conclusion.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth is a great game for those who have played Mask of Deception, however, isn't entirely suited for new players.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth is a great way to end one incredible and complex story like this one; it's guaranteed that fans will enjoy it the most. Being said that, the game doesn't offer anything different from what we hav saw in the past entries and still fails in many of the mistakes present on them. Also, this is an aggresive game with newcomers.

The tale of the unlikely hero Haku comes to its much-awaited conclusion for series fans in Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth. A story-based game at its roots, it’s best to think of Mask of Truth as a visual novel that happens to have combat to get the most out of it. As such, it’s not really for folks who want a traditional RPG gaming experience that involves heavy adventuring. But if you’re a visual novel fan who likes some battling added to your narrative experience, this is one game that will scratch your narrative itch with its tale of intrigue, friendship and love.

If you do like the narrative or can see fit to skip it, I think you'll have a much better time than I did.

If you found yourself anxiously tapping your foot through Mask of Deception and continuing on only because you already invested far too much time into it to back out now, I encourage you to give Mask of Truth a try. While the story may take a bit of time to really get going, once it gets there it will grab a hold of your attention and refuse to let go.

The game's lengthy scenes and repeated statements can feel more like padding on the game's runtime which makes Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth feel redundant at times, but the conclusion of the story will not disappoint the ones who have stuck with it this far. If you are a fan of visual novels that have elements of the SRPG genre, then very few games do it better than the Utawarerumono series, you won't be disappointing.
