The Caligula Effect Overdose is a mixed bag, a Japanese RPG filled with potentially awesome ideas and concepts that don't quite work or need fleshing out more.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose has a great combat system and an entertaining story, but poor visuals, a lack of meaningful choices, repetitive music, and a lackluster social system means this is a high school reunion you probably want to skip.

The Caligula Effect Overdose is plagued by strange design choices, poor performances and uninspired story and art direction, but is saved from a below-average mark by a good combat system.

The most irritating thing about Caligula Effect: Overdose is that in spite of me having been critical of it in my review, the fact that I did not enjoy it, or that I struggle to think of any positives, the game feels so middle-of-the-road that giving it any lower of a score would just feel unfair.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose is an okay RPG that will last you quite a while if you like the themes and concept presented. It certainly isn't the Persona-like game we were expecting so you may want to skip this if you were under the same impression as me.

It's worth giving The Caligula Effect: Overdose a chance to get into full bloom.

A competent if flawed JRPG that has a unique combat system undermined by poor localisation as well as just dull implementation. If you are after a Persona-like RPG you might get some enjoyment from this, but it's pretty generic fare.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose is not such a bad title if you dedicate yourself on it. However, the repeated scenarios, weak combat and characters without charisma make everything extremely tiring and monotonous.

The Caligula Effect progresses at a fast enough clip that, for the second time over, I haven't wanted to put it down.

Even without prior knowledge of the Persona series, it's hard to walk away from this game without criticizing the quality. A boring story, uninteresting characters, and a soundtrack that begs you to play with the sound turned off are just a sample of the myriad reasons to avoid The Caligula Effect. For a select niche, the incredibly fun combat system may be worth overlooking all of the faults, if at least for a few hours. While I had a terrific time beating my opponents into dust, everything else is just too egregious to recommend to anyone.
