Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~
Top Critic Average
Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ on the Nintendo Switch is a visual novel that gets everything right. While there's not a lot of new gameplay paths to explore, the game's plot, art style, the choices involved, the soundtrack and the overall performance make this a work that will please everyone, and even though visual novels aren't everyone's cup of tea, Code: Realize most definitely deserves an opportunity.

As a regular otome player, I expected much more from Code: Realize. I only recommend the game if you are one of these people who need to play one of the most famous otome of those who arrive in the West, but if you want to start in the genre or just enjoy a good story, I would recommend you a thousand titles before this one.

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ has you put your cute little feet into the shoes of Cardia. A young girl with a mysterious crystal embedded in her chest, replacing her heart… Oh, and, she is also poisonous. Her skin is constantly releasing a poison that is instantly fatal to anyone who touches her skin. Ya know, that kinda thing is going to make finding love a little tough.
Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~is the best otome game you can play on Nintendo Switch and one of the better visual novels available on Nintendo's hybrid system.
Code: Realize is a beautiful visual novel, with a wonderful concept that is written wonderfully.
Code: Realize Guardian of Rebirth is a solid visual novel with a unique steampunk setting and a bunch of well-written and pretty likeable lead characters. The mystery surrounding Cardia's bizarre situation combined with suitors based on well-known 18th-century literary characters is an engaging mix and, even if you're not really all that bothered with romancing a bunch of lads, there's plenty here to keep you reading and exploring the various routes and scenarios until you've seen everything this one's got to offer.
Ultimately, Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ is the visual novel for those who don’t usually like visual novels.
For a first effort, Guardian of Rebirth is a fine read despite some of the minor quirks—and maybe Impey will be a little bit less annoying in the future.
