Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 2/5
Opinion: Graphics are large and round as well as mildly detailed? They are nice.
OH MY GOD THE PLOT. SO FAIL. I mean, there was nice sentiment, and they tried but it failed miserably. Everything was so circumstantial and bland. If I’ve learned anything from script writing class it’s that you can tell when the story leads itself, or when Authors force events.
There was NO believability in this story. That she finds her love, why she is sleeping with random men? And I’m sorry but why does it always mean a woman is pregnant when she pukes? There are other symptoms. Just… so frustrating. It wasn’t even amusing. When I finished the story I was like: WOW I haven’t accomplished anything. And it wasn’t just because it was a short story, I’ve seen the exact plot line in a oneshot and it worked well. This just sucked on so many levels. You can’t even get emotionally involved with the characters. Ugh.
Don’t read this. It’s not even so bad it’s good. It’s just bad.
Final Rating: 2/5
