SKIDROW – Before playing Gaokao.Love.100Days Full Version I had no idea about how the Chinese educational system works. Now I know a little about it. So this game was not only fun but it was educational as well. However, the game is pretty grindy and not easy. And there are so many endings that I’m never going to get all of them. But I don’t have any other negative things to say about this game.

Review Gaokao.Love.100Days Full Version:
Gaokao.Love.100Days Full Version is a visual novel detailing the experiences of the protagonist in the 100 days before the major college entrace exams in China. As the protagonist, you need to balance two key aspects of these 100 days — your need to study for the exam, as well as the needs of your new girlfriend. Along the way, you’ll dictate what sort of actions the protagonist takes, as well as how he reacts to certain situations.
The artwork is solid and professional, and is definitely up to par for a respectable visual novel. The characters are lively and well drawn. The background images are also detailed and rich, and the novel makes good use of transitions between locations and times.
The music, likewise, is fitting for a visual novel of professional standards. For approximately 75% of the novel, the same songs are used in most situations. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though, because the songs are well composed and fit the situations they are played in. For important parts of the story, however, unique songs are used, and these musical pieces really add to the significance of these scenes.
I can’t speak to the voice acting, because I am not fluent, but the characters’ voices were unique and non-annoying.
The characters themselves are interesting and possess a good amount of depth. There are three main characters in the novel (excluding the protagonist), and each of them has a unique personality and interaction. Stom’s character is hilarious, and his exclamations really add a nice comedic effect to parts of the novel. Xiao is composed, intellectual, and contemplative, and her character also adds a measure of stability to the story. Ironically, I thought Muxin, the protagonist’s girlfriend, had the weakest character construction of the three, although I think it’s because of the choices I made in the game (more on that later).
One interesting part of the novel is the gameplay. Unlike other, more viewership-oriented visual novels, Gaokao.Love.100Days Full Version requires the player to guide the protagonist on day-to-day activities. You can decide whether to study, exercise, nap, talk to your girlfriend, etc. You are supposed to strive to balance your commitment to study with your need to interact with your girlfriend. In reality, I was confused from the start as to which direction to take. This novel is a classic case of “♥♥♥♥ on the player” mentality, in that random events can cause you to lose attributes or waste your time. Certain choices seem like a crap shoot at times; for example, you may choose to study one night, but because you “become pessimistic” your studying attempt backfires and your time is wasted. There isn’t much predictability in these events, either, but I was never overly frustrated by this; remember, this is a visual novel after all, and I am along for the ride, so I’m not too frustrated when the game seems to make arbitrary decisions against me.
There is one part of the game that is seriously lacking — the translations. To be blunt, the translations are a disaster. There are syntax errors throughout the novel, as well as misused pronouns and deconstructed sentences. There are also examples of poor word choice — my favorite being one line, which a character says: “A person is dead if you kill them!” There are also some typos in the novel; for me, that above all else is inexcusable. Nonetheless, I am not the type of person to be annoyed by translation issues, so it didn’t really affect my enjoyment of the game.
Finally, the plot is… unique, to say the least. I initially felt as if there was no real choices being made in the game, and that the options the player has are merely there to provide the illusion of choice. Imagine my surprise when it was revealed that I got ending 51 (!!!). I was floored that there could be at least 50+ endings to the game.
By the end, I kind of realized that I had royally screwed up in the game, as I did not have a high score and (to put it mildly) I did not do well with my girlfriend. Part of that did frustrate me, because the game is not very specific on how to do well. Nonetheless, I am looking forward to my next play through to see what I could do better.
Overall, I would recommend Gaokao.Love.100Days Full Version because I appreciate the effort that went into it. I am surprised that it has such a high rating, considering my poor ending to the game; then again, maybe my failure was worse that I realize. Hopefully my second play through brings a more succulent plot than my first.
