London Detective Mysteria is the latest otome visual novel to hit the market, and it very much reminds us of the extremely popular Code: Realize. Fans of that franchise will find themselves extremely happy upon getting into this one.

Including refreshingly dark descriptions for an otome game, London Detective Mysteria grabs your attention through its narrative and hangs onto it with its beautiful art and the promise of romance.

London Detective Mysteria is a fun little diversion for those who enjoy Victorian-era literature and the heroes and heroines that come from it, but it fails to establish itself as anything new in the genre and loses focus on the bigger mystery.

London Detective Mysteria is a perfectly good visual novel that I’ll definitely be going back to so I can romance each and every one of the available hunks.

London Detective Mysteria is far from the worst otome out there, but I wouldn't call it one of the best either. Huge otome visual novel fans will likely get some enjoyment out of this title, but other gamers or those new to the genre might just find it tedious.

My feelings about London Detective Mysteria are as mixed as what the game tries to be. It's not the best or the worst otome I've ever played, and most of the romance routes are rather sweet.

London Detective Mysteria does a few things new within the genre of otome dating sims, but at the end of the day, it isn't anything revolutionary. If you've played an otome game before, then this one will be more of the same, for better or worse. The silly cast of characters and attempts at dramatic detective plotlines are interesting, but not executed entirely well. Fans of the genre will be able to happily add this one to your pile, but if you need convincing to try out a game like this, London Detective Mysteria isn't the one for you.

While London Detective Mysteria may appeal more to otome fans specifically, for those (such as myself) just looking for a good story, you’ll struggle to find it here.

London Detective Mysteria is cruel, vile and repulsive with the way it builds its romances at the cost of the protagonist's physical and moral integrity. It's hard to believe that the protagonist doesn't end the game extremely traumatized and is able to live her happy ending with whoever it is.
