Utawarerumono – Prelude to the Fallen is just like any visual novel that I would recommend. It might have a slow start, but it picks up the pace once you pass a certain point. The strategy RPG part is interesting as well. If you like visual novels, you can keep a copy, but for just the experience just borrow a copy and be done with it. It is enjoyable as a one-time play only.
If someone is a visual novel fan, then Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen’s story will definitely be reason enough to devour this feast. If someone is considering it because they enjoy strategic RPGs and are hoping for something challenging and new, they’ll likely find themselves disappointed. I would say the saga is strong enough that it makes enduring an occasional, brief battle every once in a while, but people who feel like they need more would be justified in not helping Hakuowlo pick up the pieces.
All in all, I ended up pleasantly surprised by my playthrough of Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen. I can't say if it is worth playing if you've already played Mask of Deception and Mask of Truth, given that I imagine many of its plot reveals will already be known to you, but if you're at all curious as to how the story first came about...then it could be worth a look.
