    Was this any good? I loved the first season to death, but idk from what I’ve seen of the game.

    Reviews stateside are mostly lukewarm about it, but everyone calls it “well written” so I suppose from our perspective that’s the only thing that matters.

    I played it on the Vita and it’s really good. It plays like Chaos;Head on a way.
    You have several ways of taking your play. The events are mostly the same, but you can see them through the eyes of the male and female OCs, can take several choices and every chapter comes with a pycho-pass evaluation afterwards you can choose to take or not take your meds. It’s feels engaging.

    The story was written by Gen Urobuchi so you already know what to expect regarding plot quality.

    Was the anime any good? I missed it.

    Awesome. I’ll keep a look out for it then.

    I felt very “okay” about it. They hide the brutality visually way too much for a Psycho-Pass game, and the visual variety is so little, it honestly felt more like a cheap way to cash in on the brand name more than an actual fully developed VN with heart behind it.

    Personally, I didn’t think it was shit though, just underwhelming.

    Personally, I didn’t hate it, but I found it to be generic and unsurprising. It’s not quite the GitS (SAC/2nd Gig) rip-off some people label it as, but it is kind of similar in tone and style, but gets no where remotely close to GitS in terms of quality.

    There was an extended re-release of it, wasn’t there? Did you watch the extended or the original run?

    I thought Psycho pass was good and interesting in some parts, yes it was trying to be some insightful review on a system that monitors humans, but it did have interesting moments. Plus interesting characters helped.

    Sorry for the late reply; I believe I watched the original. But I don’t think an extended version would have changed my criticisms, which were mostly to do with tone and delivery, not so much plot exposition.

    I see. Thanks for sharing your opinion! In the end, I might watch it to give context to the game if I end playing it.
