Top Critic Average
World End Syndrome is a beautifully drawn visual novel that I recommend to anyone who is a fan of the genre. It features a great cast and an interesting plot surrounding the mystery of Mihate Town.
With a very satisfying final conclusion that makes impressive use of the previous reveals and clues, and a vibrant visual style, World End Syndrome is a very worthwhile pickup for those with passing interests in visual novels and mystery stories.
"World End Syndrome" takes the standard visual novel game and adds graphically stunning illustrations to heighten the creepy factor as you unravel the mysteries behind Mihate Town.
World End Syndrome may fool you or even goes by unnoticed in a year full of new visual novels on consoles, but after giving it a fair shot, it manages to be the best of the year so far.

World End Syndrome is super user friendly, intriguing, has a really fitting soundtrack, and totally drew me in almost from the get-go. If you enjoy interactive novels, World End Syndrome is definitely an experience you probably don’t want to miss. So come and unravel the mystery behind the Yomibito, and join us in our World End Syndrome.
World End Syndome is a visual novel masterpiece. The story is gripping and evocative, blending fun romance and tense murder mystery together incredibly well. The characters are sharp and beautifully illustrated, and the way their personalities and backgrounds developed over the course of the game was equally well-done. Best of all is the smart save system that keeps track of your progress and does a great job of encouraging you to keep coming back for the full story. It's hard to find any faults with a visual novel game like this that so successfully blends beautiful art and storytelling with satisfying game mechanics.
An ancestral legend, a series of disappearances and an idyllic coastal town are the perfect framework for this interesting visual novel in which romance and terror go hand in hand to give us hours and hours of fun

World End Syndrome is such a beautiful visual novel and it expertly weaves its romance and mystery elements together to create a truly alluring adventure. It does a very good job at subverting your expectations but it's lengthy prologue may mean that some will switch off before the game reaches the really good bits.
Overall, polish and craftsmanship elevate a lightweight but amusing story to something that really stands out. For visual novel freshmen, it could even be your first crush.
Overall, World End Syndrome is a mash-up of great style but unusual choices. An excellent core story with a mostly pointless first half. An intriguing attempt at interactivity that winds up turning much of the game into guesswork. Very attractive presentation, but mostly average soundwork.
Overall, if you are already a fan of visual novels as a whole, Worldend Syndrome will probably be successful at drawing you in. If you’re not already a fan of the genre, it isn’t likely to change your mind.
At the end of the day, World End Syndrome is aimed squarely at the niche of romance visual novel fans. The game is very well-written and well-executed, but it is unlikely to bring in new fans to the genre.
