Yamato Yuuki has been chosen!
He will get to live out everyone’s dream of being a super hero!
Dengeki Stryker changes the focus of recent Overdrive games from Music to Super Heroes as we delve into a world where Evil threatens the safety of Tokyo under the guise of the Balboran Empire and only one man (it’s always one man for some reason) can save it! Will he save the world? Will the Balborans prevail? Will these questions ever end?
Thankfully, there are enough good parts that you won’t be disheartened for long. Alas, the poor humble tester does not have these options. 🙁
We also have our 2 (3?) lovely heroines joining us and you’ll be happy to hear that I don’t consider Haruna to be a useless moeblob childhood friend!
Haruna is Yuuki’s childhood friend who he’s now forgotten and she’s a girl who’s not going to take this turn of events lying down!
Sayaka is our resident Tsundere who clearly has no feeling whatsoever for the protagonist and wishes he would stop leeching off her coffee shop. I-it’s not like she wants to depend on him or anything!
We also have Mysterious Girlfriend S (That was terrible – Ed.) who whisks herself onto the scene in the final moments of the game to spice up the proceedings as the game hurtles into it’s final stages, however her identity is a closely guarded secret…
The only thing I regret is that this game isn’t as long as your usual Overdrive affair, coming in at 15-16 hours as opposed to 35+ with previous games, however the sheer amount of awesome packed into those 15-16 hours more than makes up for those inadequacies.
Plus, could your body truly handle 35+ hours of Dengeki Stryker?
