"Death end re;Quest is a game that takes the classic turn-based RPG and turns it on its head. Players are able to change the game's genre and switch game modes from RPG into fighting, shooter, and even a slot mode. You'll also be able to jump at will between the in-game world and the real world to investigate your missing friend, unlocking one of the multiple endings. Choose wisely, as lines between fantasy and reality will begin to blur.

Even with its issues, Death end re;Quest still managed to hold my interest and keep me wanting more. Being able to switch between visual novel and RPG segments keeps the pace moving and intrigue high. Sure, the art is a bit generic, the combat gets slow, and a completionist ranking is daunting, but there’s a really good, unique experience here that doesn’t deserve to be ignored.
Overall, Death end re;Quest does a good job telling a long story through an engaging RPG/visual novel hybrid. With satisfying combat and some strong story moments, re;Quest might give you that JRPG fix despite having its modest share of issues. And even though it doesn’t bring anything insanely new to the genre, re;Quest builds itself well as an all-around solid JRPG that gives the player something a little darker to dive into.
The visual novel side of the game is definitely the strongest part, and it’s a shame that the RPG sections aren’t quite as engrossing. I found myself wishing that Shina’s sections were shorter, so that I could spend more time watching Arata investigate. The story is such a brilliant blend of science fiction and occult and, with the constant twists and turns, I didn’t want to put the controller down until I’d uncovered the truth behind everything.
