There's nothing really deep being said about Rio Reincarnation, nor the other two visual novels in this package. The trilogy really is a series of straightforward, light-hearted, comedic (without being subversive or satirical), charming and simple stories, backed up with some of the most gorgeous fan service art you'll find. Sometimes that's all you need, and Tsunako really is a genius in her field.

DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation is a rather interesting experience. Initially it feels like a poor man's Fate/Stay Night and eventually goes in a fascinating direction. This means you need to get past the slow start and invest in the characters, though it will pay off in the end. You're also getting three games for the price of one, plus plenty of extras, making it a fantastic value. So, if you're a fan of visual novels or just want something to do over the slow months, it's easy to see the value of DATE A LIVE: Rio Reincarnation.
