GP: "School Days was considered pretty revolutionary at its time, and still could be considered so. It even went on to spawn other media releases like an anime and manga series. One of the reasons that the visual novel became so popular is that the whole game is completely animated. How often do you see that? That fact may lure many into checking the visual novel out, but you might still be skeptical about the other elements of School Days HQ. Does its story, characters, and so-forth meld together with its animation to make a worthwhile game?"
