I reviewed The Caligula Effect over at MonsterVine, and while it was definitely a flawed game, it was good enough that I’m interested in learning more about the remake.
Caligula Overdose has a new “Forbidden Musician Route” that doubles the scenario, the option to play as a female protagonist, two new members of the Go-Home Club (the main group), and two new Musicians (the villains).
The story was written by the writer of the original Persona and the Persona 2 games, and it was fairly good. It sounds like the remake’s new route will let the player join the Musicians, which should be interesting.
In my review, I mentioned how the game could have been stronger if it focused more attention on the main party instead of having 500 recruitable characters with generic dialogue (easily the weakest part of the game), and I hope the remake leans more in that direction.
So far, no localization has been announced for Caligula Overdose, but if it does come West (as The Caligula Effect Overdose?), I’ll be interested in seeing what improvements it makes over the original.Like this post? Tell your friends!
