About this game

After a sudden car accident on her first day of school, the protagonist finds herself in the afterlife, standing before a strange school for lost souls. The confounded protagonist attends the school's opening ceremony. And then, suddenly—a loud blast tears through the auditorium. In the midst of the chaos, a red-haired young man appears. Without a shred of hesitation in his voice, he reaches his hand out and asks her: 'Do you want to live?'

After the first playthrough, I set down to write the review, before convincing myself that a Good and Bad play through would make for a more thorough review. By the time I had finished my fifth play through, all ten endings, and even unlocked the platinum, I had no excuses left to keep playing. Even then, I still wanted to look back over my favorite scenes. Despite plot holes and some lazy writing, Bad Apple Wars has utterly charmed me.
For fans of otome games, Bad Apple Wars may feel like a love-it-or-hate-it experience that will mostly depend on how much you’re able to put up with. If you’re able to find aspects of the characters you like, its romance subplots will probably pay off. Yet, even if you can’t, there’s an interesting enough plot that will make its few hours long of a campaign feel justified.
Bad Apple Wars explores the afterlife in a way that is sure to grab the interest of visual novel fans, especially those who are already fans of Angel Beats!. However, the inconsistencies in character routes and a few dull events involving Rinka’s pathetic attitude holds the game back from being a great otome. There is plenty to love of Bad Apple Wars, but to me it doesn’t stand out when compared to some of the better otome visual novels available.
