XBlaze: Code Embryo is set in the same universe as the BlazBlue fighting titles, but no prior knowledge is required to enjoy the story. The game features an intriguing storyline and multiple endings, but reading news articles to influence the path you take is a little confusing at first. Once you figure out the system, it is a lot of fun though, and the stylish visuals as well as great soundtrack make it easy to recommend.
Gameplay: A typical visual novel with a rather unusual system for choosing your path to the multiple endings.
Graphics: Not a lot of animation, but very detailed and colorful.
Sound: Plenty of music tracks and some great Japanese voice acting as well
