Having played the remake Re;Birth 1 first, I kinda realize how substantially different the original game is (compared to mk2 and its remake Re;Birth 2) 0.o
In the remake, I had to go through Noire (ch2) -> Vert (ch3) -> Blanc (ch4) in order. But in the original game, those 3 chapters become like one huge ch2 and I have to keep moving around the continents in order to progress respective stories. And it seems for now the likely order of completion in the original game is Noire -> Blanc -> Vert?
Also, Gust and NISA are not in the remake. Licensing issues? Production cost? (They seem to be replaced with the game characters from Victory) ^^;
The game gets a little monotonous now but I kinda like the simplicity of it. It’s the first game after all.
In this game, I kinda feel the cool-to-cute ratio is slightly higher compared to the rest of the series (which is how I personally would prefer it) (I guess it’s because of the opening movie, the music, the Kamen Rider-like sound effects). Some of the character traits are also not ‘perfectly’ defined yet, so they might be not as funny.
I remember I was expecting another cool opening movie for mk2 when I first bought it. But since mk2 onward, all the opening movies have been the cheerful type ^^;
I’m pretty sure I can keep playing till the end (unless I’m bored to death by the repetition – thank god I can skip the attacks) ^^;
