AI: The Somnium Files is a must-play for fans of detective games. It’s risky, creative, fascinating, and feels like the next step for the visual novel medium. There are plenty of valid worries I’ve seen pop up from people who felt burnt by ZTD, but I feel like all of those were addressed here. It’s far from perfect, but the flaws are incredibly minor and it still delivers the strongest narrative I’ve seen from a game all year. Fans and newcomers will find a lot to Love with AI, don’t Sleep on this game.
That said, once all of the branches were done and the story was finally wrapped up in an excellent ending (seriously, you need to see it), we were left quite stunned by how much Uchikoshi and Spike Chunsoft had reeled us into the narrative. We were enjoying it a lot before the branches opened up, at which point it was elevated to new levels, and we can confidently say this is a game you should certainly play this year. It's a unique cocktail of dark moments mixed with over-the-top silliness, all of which combines with a web of mysteries to produce a very special game indeed.
AI: The Somnium Files es, en líneas generales, una interesante propuesta jugable que llama la atención tanto por la intrincada investigación que se lleva a cabo a lo largo de la trama, contada a través de cada una de las rutas del juego, como por el elenco de personajes que la protagonizan, cada uno de ellos aparentemente comunes a simple vista pero sus trasfondos muestran aspectos que ocultan mucho más de lo que muestran. A eso sumar que el juego sabe mezclar en buena medida los momentos de misterio con ciertas dosis de acción, escenas cruentas e incluso una pizca de sentido del humor.
