Tester’s Corner: Chou Dengeki Stryker Ed. Vol. 2

CG03

Hello, whoever is reading this. I just finished reading Chou Dengeki Stryker, and it’s probably one of the best visual novels I’ve ever read. Why you might ask? Well, I’m going to tell you.

To begin with, this is sort of an expansion/fan disc to the original Dengeki Stryker which I never had played before. This meant that I effectively had to read both visual novels so I could understand the plot, characterization, and the like. It was an overall enjoyable experience.

Now, back to why I consider it one of the best VNs I’ve ever read.

To begin with, I read the summary of the game on vndb.org, and thought “Person turned comic book superhero. Sounds lame.” But I gave it a shot anyway, expecting to be not so entertained. However, it was actually really surprising. How you can level with the protagonist is actually quite an incredible thing. There are few visual novels I’ve played where I’ve actually been able to do that, and Chou Dengeki Stryker is one of them.

The characters are actually probably the main selling point for me. I love how their personalities all tend to undergo this dramatic change when effected by the protagonist. You’ve got the innocent classmate, the childhood friend, the mild tsundere, and the airhead. All of these girls are initially a set style, but the main protagonist changes who they are for the better.

The plot definitely is great, but it does come second to the characterization, but that’s because I loved the characters so much. Either way, if you kind of like those battle superhero visual novels, you’d definitely like this.

Thanks for reading my tester’s corner, and this is linktriforce007, signing out.

  1. “this is sort of an expansion/fan disc to the original Dengeki Stryker”??? It seems that you have no idea what you are talking about.

  2. If anything it’s more like the original Dengeki Stryker was only half finished. Love saga is a side story that would make a fitting Fan Disk, but Steel and Light Sagas turn the Zero Saga which left plot threads hanging into a complete story.
    And what an amazing story it turned out to be.

  3. Very neat Tester’s Corner 🙂

  4. “Chou Dengeki Stryker, and it’s probably one of the best visual novels I’ve ever read. ”
    lolwut? you didn’t read many vn did you?
    Dengeki Stryker is an average vn, if you want to read something good try out vns from Age, KID, Akabeisoft2, Type-Moon and Nitro+.
    You’ll be impressed!

  5. Nice! Now I just hope the game will also get a retail release so I can add it to my collection. :3
