Review Dies irae ~Acta est Fabula~ Free Download:
Even among massive visual novels, Dies Irae is a Behemoth. Its four vastly different and fast-braching routes, its sprawling convoluted prose culminating in breathtaking action scenes, its diverse and ever lovable cast of heroes and vilains, the five additional side stories included in the full package… They all combine to provide the reader with a uniquely epic reading experience.
One should not pay much attention to the historical context or to the literary references, as they are mostly there for aesthetical reasons (do not play this game if you can’t stand the almighty “Rule of the cool”). The plot is almost entirely character-driven, and boy is the cast awesome. You won’t escape japanese pop-culture clichés, as much in the characters than in the situations, but the game is fully aware of that, and uses it at its advantage.
Even so, the plot should not be taken that seriously either, for it is the brief (but intense) confrontations between lovable and masterfully built characters that compose the true meat of the story. These multiple climaxes are served by a flowery and convoluted writing style that turns even the most absurd Shonen-y scenes into epic engagements. The amazing soundtrack brings these clashes one step further (even if the “emotional” or “casual” tracks do not reach the level of their action counterparts). It is also worth noting that the whole story is not too affected by the typical dating sim structure.
In terms of production value, things are equally brilliant. The character design and the CG’s are gorgeous. The voice acting is by far the best I’ve experienced on any VN out there, and the sound design is on point.
Still, visual novel Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ Ful Version is not for everyone. Despite its looks, it has little to see with an extended anime or a coloured musical manga : the descriptions are lengthy, and the plot more than tends to drag. As explained before, one should not expect mindblowing twists, tearjerking emotional moments, or a revolutionary plot. The game lives by and for its cast, making it a blessing for fans of character-driven drama, a drag for the others.
At the end of the day though, I still spent 100 great hours on this game. All in all, Dies Irae definitely proves that the VN medium can bring a lot to a genre (action/shonen/chuuni) monopolized by manga and anime. Get Dies irae ~Acta est Fabula~ Free Download now and enjoy this game.
