Being a huge simracing fan I tend to look for an escape whenever I'm not on my PC. I've tried several games that claimed to be realistic (I'm looking at you, Real Racing 3), but only Assoluto managed to fill the void. It's not as truly realistic as a simracing does, but the game plays close to what an ideal simcade would.

Some of the weakest point of this game is the fact that "exclusive" cars are locked with gacha mechanics. True, you can build any car up to spec, but there's that certain need of "I want this car" that you will never get through buying cars.

Other weak part is how cars don't seem to go as fast as it should. Acceleration seems to be veeeeeery slow even if you tuned your car with higher torque and all. Other than that, the general driving feel is quite realistic, you can expect the game to play like a simcade would.

Game does offer AI race, but it's best to forget it ever existed. The AI moves like a tank, they won't budge if you accidentally hit them, and they'll ram you real hard if you're in their way.

Online lobby has a small issues where the game will stutter slightly when someone joined. No, there's no collision with other players and when I asked about it they seem to not want to implement such feature due to many factors that doesn't work well within their engine.

If you're playing the game expecting high level of simulation, you'd probably be disappointed. But, if what you want is a simcade like Gran Turismo on your phone with online lobby and whatnot, Assoluto is the best thus far.

Blue Oath | Japanese

4.0

By far the closest thing you can get to Kantai Collection Arcade, a faithful clone as it tries to replicate almost every aspects of the gameplay that you want to see. And of course, executed way better than a pile of mess called Abyss Horizon.

Other than that this is your typical ship-waifu collecting game where SSR will always be proven to be superior in every aspects (and yes, this has been a thing when I talked to peeps playing in CN as I also used to play CN version) so bear that in mind.

Equipment system is similar to Azur Lane so you know what to expect tbh, equipments are based on rarity and they're all upgradeable. Missions to get exp and all the good stuff opens everyday, which makes it better because you don't have to wait for day x to get the thing you're looking for.

Unlike CN version, the main mission has more missions you need to clear before you can do X-1 ~ X-4. To make it more "fun", these missions have auto disabled and certain missions will force you to go on a specific route so you need to minmax your fleet composition very early in game.

And then, we have to come to the biggest issue and its generosity; gacha. Every other games hace their own gacha rate but for Blue Oath..... I can say it's pretty bad, but there's something interesting about it. For every new banner you can roll for X times (20 or 30, kinda forgot) and you'll get one guaranteed SSR without having to pay extra cost, there's a box on the right side of the banner for you to press.

What else? I have nothing to say other than "if you're an Azur Lane players looking for Kancolle Arcade clone with mechanics that you'll feel you're at home then this is the best one you can get"

Edit #1: editing my review after a more thorough gameplay, some aspects of the game were changed in JP version, eg. expeditions which is missing from the game.

Edit #2: another edit as I see people are complaining over rarity gap and the abysmal rate of gacha (while obviously only playing for several days)

SHOW BY ROCK!! Fes A Live

3.8

First of all..... much like previous SBR, it takes its inspiration in term of design from another game, but this time it's Bandori. While it's not really a bad thing to me, others will feel like it's straight up lazy design. I don't really care much, but you should take that into consideration.

And because it was designed as such, comparing this to bandori can't be avoided.

Difficulty doesn't scale that much, if you play Bandori, Deresute and all other rhythm games in maxed difficulty you'll find SBR:FaL a bit too easy. It's fun for casual players but not so much for veterans.

Despite these flaws presented in the game, my real honest take is that is has a lot of great songs to pick (not in term of quantity but it's more to quality), one reason I like this more than Bandori. Sure, Bandori has several good originals and huge amount of cool covers but it doesn't stand much chance to SBR's songs, it's just my opinion so please take it with a grain of salt.

Is this game worth your time? Maybe, if you like cute kemonomimis and great songs then this is the one for you. But if you're a rhythm veteran looking for challenge, you can skip this title until there's a real challenge coming to the game.

NFS Heat Studio

1.8

I'm taking this review in regards of how the customization works. Basically, it's nothing different from 2015 or Payback's level of customization. App simply exists to build the hype for the upcoming NFS Heat.

Nothing remotely special to the app other than "you can put the final result later to the game when it's released".

As far as the customization goes.... it relies on the same platform as 2015, to the point that some cars also lack parts, as expected from Ghost Games.

Custom Cast

2.2

As a guy who has been following Custom Maid series starting from the very first CM3D (started actively following the game as they released CM3D2), I'd say that it's a nifty little app that does it own thing. Graphics are pretty much similar to CM3D2 and COM3D2 thanks to their capability of utilising unity engine.

The saddest part of this little app is that it does less than the main game itself (it's understandable as v-tuber is their main focus), lack of content and nothing can be modded as far as I know. KISS and Dwango could've made this much better but it's only as good as it is. They could've made it to play a little bit of LOVE PLUS to engage players with something extra, but I guess that's too much for a mobile v-tuber app (to make it even worse, Reality Avatar did v-tuber app better than Dwango and KISS combined).

Still wished this app is moddable as mods from CM3D2 era is already huge in numbers.
