| A low budget labor of love
It's half a miracle that the game even saw the light of day, so I will overlook the straight-out awfully technical side and the Japanese VAs all did a good job to make the scenario "come alive". The gameplay itself also borders on being an afterthought in parts, but I can forgive that due to the insane amount of plot-lines the game has to juggle. I will admit that the 1st half was a bit too slow, that the completely new team Q plot could have used better writing but the 2nd half undeniably delivered. Be warned that only the 2 sets of protagonist from 999 and VLR get to continue their narrative but anything else would have been a herculean effort. The lack of payoff to the secret ending to VLR is my only true gripe and i don't mind the slightly controversial conclusion, as the whole game's narrative supports the decision to keep the ending somewhat "open". The overall dark and frankly daring direction and the exceptional foreshadowing of the antagonist's true nature will certainly stick with me, even if the villain could have used a better explained backstory. ZTD may be the least "rounded" of the games (999 should still feature inferior writing) but it ultimately concluded the trilogy rather well and newcomers need to start @ the start. Or wait for the upcoming re-masters. Even ZTD could use one… The same goes for Remember 11, the writers other good game, that still lacks a conclusion.
