This game kept me on the edge of my seat. While it's not the cleanest storytelling in a game, it still delivered a narrative that made me want to connect the dots and dig into the mystery even further. The characters were all fun to know and play as, but a bit flat by the end of the game.



I really enjoyed the RTS section of the game. It provided a straightforward challenge that weaves in well with the story and gives you a glimpse at the personality of the 13 pilots. It's a good break from the visual novel portions that, while addicting to play, does wear on you after a while!

Una trama y un guión soberanos que enlazan a la perfección 13 historias de 13 personajes completamente diferentes.



Todos los protagonistas son de sobresaliente, están muy bien diferenciados y eso hace que el juego sea divertido de principio a fin, además tiene unas referencias maravillosas al cine sci-fi de 1980 a los 2000.



El sistema del modo batalla pese a ser repetitivo tiene la variedad justa para que no se te hagan pesados las más de 30 oleadas, además la banda sonora encaja perfectamente.



El único punto negativo que le podría dar al juego es la no-linealidad de los eventos que a veces hace que te confundas o incluso te spoilees algunas historias conectadas.



El resto me ha parecido perfecto, ojalá Vanillaware se replantee sacar más títulos similares.

As long as you approach the title as a visual novel with some light strategy rather than a strategy game with some light story, you'll find a lot to like. It's an easy recommend for fans of Virtue's Last Reward or Steins;Gate or those who have enjoyed previous Vanillaware offerings.

Vanillaware’s previous games include fantasy-inspired fare like Odin Sphere, Muramasa, and Dragon’s Crown. With 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the studio doesn’t just dip its toes into sci-fi; it jumps into the deep end with a story that takes inspiration from the genre’s most iconic works. While that doesn’t result in the most original plot, it is still a fun and ambitious experience that combines high-school drama and huge robots in a (mostly) beautiful package.

Had Vanillaware crafted a title where the story and the action wove into one another flawlessly, we'd be looking at the greatest game the developer has ever made, without question. Unfortunately, that's not what this game is, and while what is here is great, it's crushing to see just how close 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim came to perfection.
