I must apologize for getting this review out late. Hurricane Irene decided to leave me without Internet for a few days, so I tried to get this article posted as soon as I could. With that out of the way, let’s get to the review!
Chaos;head, or ChäoS;HEAd as it’s stylized, is a visual novel jointly produced in 2008 by famous developer Nitroplus, who were involved with this year’s top hit Madoka Magica, 2007′s Blassreiter, and the upcoming Fate/Zero , and 5pb., a record label and videogame publisher who now ports and even makes visual novels. Madhouse has also made an anime out of it (albeit a terrible one). How does the visual novel hold up though? While it starts out really interesting, showing a lot of potential with a very good initial narrative, the story gets worse and worse, eventually making the game very mediocre.
