BTS now has an official visible novel fashion sport that places you within the position of managing your favourite boy band. Sadly, it’s a nice idea however has poor execution. There are many options which sound enjoyable, however one way or the other nonetheless miss the mark. Even when you love BTS, which I do, this sport nonetheless feels uninteresting and boring. However one way or the other it’s cute, and I nonetheless discover myself enjoying it and hoping it should get higher. I’m grateful they made this sport and took time to translate the textual content to English. Even whether it is quite mediocre at finest.
Try the complete evaluation beneath.
Title: BTS World
Style: Visible Novel / Otome Sport / Relationship Sim / Supervisor Sim
Writer: Web Marble
The place To Get:
Launch Date: June 2019
My Rating: 51/80 64% D “Common Sport For Women”
The sport has solely been out for about 2 weeks at this level, so hopefully they’ll preserve including new updates to make the sport extra thrilling. The primary chapter is very uninteresting. It wants a greater introduction to the sport, as a result of nobody goes to stay round to maintain enjoying when the primary dozen or extra missions are so lackluster. I preserve enjoying to see the lovable boys, however you can simply watch BTS youtube movies and get the identical impact lol.
Geeky: 2/5 – Gameplay is unhealthy, story is boring, however but, it’s positively geeky, solely geeky ladies (and guys?) who love BTS will play this sport.
Sweetie: 5/5 – The sport is cute, with every member being featured in their very own chapters and placing you in the course of their story – regardless that that story actually isn’t good in any respect. I like with the ability to fake to textual content/chat with BTS, and watch their cute reactions. Who’s your favourite BTS member? I like Jimin and Jin. They’re so cute.
Gameplay: 4/10 – I wish to fee this greater… however I simply can’t… It has so many options, accumulating playing cards like in Love Dwell, visible novel/otome story like concept manufacturing facility video games, dressup minigames like love nikki, chatting/phoning like Mystic Messenger…. but… one way or the other… regardless that it attracts inspiration from all of those wonderful standard video games that I like… it one way or the other… feels flat to me… The options are there… however they lack coronary heart if that makes any sense?
Additionally one factor that drives me loopy is we will’t take screenshots, and may’t share our playing cards / brag about rares, and many others on social media; that kills loads of the enjoyable for me.
Story: 3/10 – The story is unhealthy… actually unhealthy… Nearly can’t power myself to maintain enjoying the sport as a result of the story is so gradual, boring, uninteresting, simply blah…. You guys know I don’t like giving spoilers after I evaluation a sport, I prefer to allow you to uncover the tales for yourselves… I ought to add I’m not very far within the sport but? Possibly about half means by way of? Possibly it should get higher?
To provide you a “spotlight” of the story “idea” BTS World takes place in an alternate universe the place BTS has by no means met. You obtain an odd message in your cellphone telling you that you’ve received a free ticket to a BTS live performance, however once you arrive, it’s solely a single member, who’s ready to signal a contract which you one way or the other mysteriously have been carrying round.
Shock, you’re BTS’ supervisor. Solely you might have any reminiscence of who BTS is within the “Actual World”. Right here on this alternate universe, you’re employed at Massive Hit and have been tasked with recruiting expertise for a brand new boy band who will ultimately turn out to be what we all know as BTS.
You do that by progressing by way of a visible novel fashion sport, though there are few selections alongside the best way.
The sport assumes alot about you because the participant. It assumes you already know who BTS is, and that you’ve in depth intimate information about every of the members of BTS. The sport doesn’t actually present you any of this data, as a result of why would you be enjoying this sport until you like BTS proper? (that’s their considering not mine, I personally “like” BTS, however I’m probably not educated about each single member).
I feel the story might be improved by assuming much less. Giving the characters extra… character? I wish to be taught/know extra about every member of BTS whereas I’m enjoying… however I really feel prefer it doesn’t actually inform me a lot… which leaves me feeling uninterested…
The video games first a number of missions are actually like “OMG it’s xyz Member, what’s he doing right here? Oh he signed my contract, and teased me as a result of I’m freaking out once more. I’m a extremely unhealthy supervisor. I’ll do my finest to assist BTS”
I quite it assume that the participant solely has minimal information – or higher but even, no information, of BTS. I quite see the members launched doing issues they take pleasure in/love, like what’s their favourite meals, what different hobbies have they got other than kpop, like possibly enjoying video video games, enjoying basketball, studying, volunteering with animals, I dunno, no matter BTS does of their spare time.
I really feel like that might add some… coronary heart… or humanity… or one thing to this sport…. Give me a purpose to care concerning the characters….
The target market of this sport, the hundreds of thousands of ARMYs are in all probability completely pleased with this sport, as evidenced by the 4.Eight ranking on Google…. I don’t think about myself an ARMY… however I do think about myself a fan of BTS – as evidenced right here the final month or two that I’ve been sharing my listening habits with you readers, you’ll be able to see I always checklist BTS (amongst additionally different KPop artists).
However regardless that I’m a fan, I couldn’t let you know an excessive amount of; hell I can’t even identify each member actually – sorry, I’m not like die-hard… I’m simply kinda an off-the-cuff fan… however I wish to play this sport too… but it surely simply… frustrates me that I really feel indifferent from the story and characters as a result of the sport does nothing to introduce them, inform me about them, let me “get to know them”.
Which leads us to…
Characters: 7/10 – I’m ranking this extremely – I’m taking factors away for the dearth of character “improvement” – however the characters are precise BTS members and so they have made movies and photos and many others only for this sport, which is absolutely cute, the place they communicate proper to you as a supervisor. And you’ll see cute clips and introductions and it’s very cute. I like the lovable boys. That’s the one factor saving this sport. lol.
Graphics: 8/10 – Generally… the graphics look very tacky within the novel (important gameplay components), as a result of they’re so stiff. I’m used to Live2D the place the characters transfer fluidly… However… in different sections, even some excessive stage playing cards, there may be actual video clips, and BTS is so cute, who couldn’t love the Graphics, actually?
Voice: 10/10 – BTS gives voice clips for the sport too. You’ll be able to hear BTS speaking to you :).
Music: 10/10 – What BTS sport wouldn’t have good music? duh lol.
Replay Worth: 2/10 – I’m unsure… it’s solely been out for two weeks – will they’ve time-limited playing cards, particular occasions, and many others? I hope so, in any other case when you full the story (which isn’t even that good within the first place) I see no purpose to maintain enjoying the sport.
My Rating: 51/80 64% D “Common Sport For Women” – Yeah, I’d say this sport is absolutely simply Common. A lot better video games on the market… however when you love BTS – and know rather a lot about BTS – like I do know Thousands and thousands of ARMYs do – then you’ll in all probability tremendous love this sport. For me, it’s simply kinda cute/amusing however finally not an excellent sport in any respect, regardless of that I like BTS fairly a bit, however my lack of intimate information of the band and its members finally hurts my enjoyment of this sport. Your mileage could fluctuate, particularly when you’re a BTS tremendous fan. lol.
