What amaze me is even though Girls Frontline revenue isn't that high compare to other mobile games, the main team Sunborn/MICA has the balls of steel creating this game and other projects. This shows that this game doesn't meant to gain as much money as possible. But to show thank you to their fanbase for supporting Girls Frontline.
The graphic is cute with combination of 3D Chibi model and 2D Live2D/illustration. They even add tiny detail in latest update (Yes, i'm talking about Clukay's skirt and stockings). The special effect is variable and 'clear' enough for each characters.
I don't put so much thought for audio since mainly i play on mute. But if the soundtrack is from Vanguard studio team, you know what they capable of.
The story, their progress and explanation for players really put your brain through the cloud. There's so much 'unknown' words and not your everyday conversation. The first 2 or 3 chapters might be boring, but it will be getting more interesting. Of course reading some outsource lore here and there really help understanding the flow. Check their discord/reddit, you might found some interesting things created by other players.
Gameplay was old style, rogue type. But wait, there are some complex system. And everything can't be push through with only 1 team. The beauty of mixing and setup your characters unique ability is good enough. Stamina system hold your progressing faster, and this game is slowburn type.
Don't start with gacha, every account has different luck. In my opinion, it's not a cash-burn gacha type. It's not punishing like F/GO (Yes, i was a masochist playing that game for 4 years). And for me, i'm doing fine without purchasing currency for gacha.
Summary, it's just an OK game. But it's great for the Girls Frontline fans. Yuzhong deserve the respect.
