Overall, I do find it hard to recommend Dead or School. While I love how fast and frantic the gameplay can be, the presentation really lets it down. If you’re going into this hoping for a well-told and exciting story with nice cutscenes you might be let down.
Despite some awkward difficulty spikes, cheap reference humour, and some characters being hit or miss with me, I have had a good time with Murder by Numbers. It was a huge learning curve to solve these puzzles and I'm certain that fans of Ace Attorney and similar titles who also happen to be skilled at Picross will have a fantastic time with the story and the cast of colourful and wacky characters.
If you are looking to pick up an Atelier game for the first time, I can quite easily recommend Atelier Ayesha as a brilliant JRPG in it’s own right, but also a fantastic jumping on point in the series, and the Atelier Dusk Trilogy Deluxe Pack is a great way to play the trilogy on current-gen hardware.
