Review: Sweet Fuse: At Your Side - [Save/Continue]

Jacob Ross at Save/Continue writes:

"Few genres have the ability to cultivate a sense of earned camaraderie between characters as well as visual novels can – a welcome byproduct of the intersection between unusual length and strong narrative focus. It is a potent mixture that gave us two of this generation’s very best games in the form of the Zero Escape series, and it has now yielded yet another delicious fruit, though this one of a decidedly different flavor. Sweet Fuse: At Your Side, an otome developed by Idea Factory and published by the once again on-point Aksys Games, does not reach the dizzying heights of Spike Chunsoft‘s magnum opus, nor does it attempt to. But what it does, and what it does damn well, is present an incredibly likeable and ultimately cohesive cast that does not inherit these traits, but attains them. And in an industry where even inheritance is routinely bungled by incompetent storytelling and characterization, that is a feat most impressive." (PS Vita, PSP, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side) 7/10
