Thoughts on Galaxy Angel

Posted in Rants with tags , , on December 2, 2011 by Mazyrian

So, as you may have noticed, I’ve been making reviews of the Galaxy Angel II games. The reviews are mostly positive, especially the EKnT one; and while it’s true that I liked the games, they’re not without their flaws. However, those flaws for the most part are not game-specific, but somewhat more fundamental, that permeate the whole series.

I had thought also of making a reflection on the series as a whole. It was to be mainly a list of random points in respect to the games and universe, but is also an opportunity to comment on the negative points the games have.

Spoilers for all the games follow. Translate them with rot13.

Galaxy Angel II – Zettai Ryouiki no Tobira

The original Galaxy Angel game came as somewhat of a surprise to me. I had seen some of the anime, which didn’t prepared me at all; and though the gameplay was easy to the point of triviality, it was at least good looking, and the story was nice, if not particularly deep, and the heroines were for the most part likable (at least some). Also, space opera is one of my favorites genres, and is not very exploited by the Japanese media. The sequels didn’t leave such a good impression, though; Moonlit Lovers felt much more rushed, and Eternal Lovers was dumb on several levels.  In spite of that, after EL I decided to try the GAII series; I mean, at the very least it couldn’t be much worse than EL, right?

Galaxy Angel II – Zettai Ryouki no Tobira is a Broccoli game, and the first of the Galaxy Angel II trilogy; it came out in 2006 for the PS2. This will be a review mainly comparing this game with the original Galaxy Angel series; as such, and this being a sequel, there will be spoilers for those games. Read at your own risk.
