Choice of Robots – Video Game Review
An entirely text based game, written by a doctor of computer science Kevin Gold, PhD, that will remind you of the old Choose Your Own Adventure books, where every decision you make dramatically affects the outcome. Though in reality, it is really more of a novel than a game. I played through the first time in roughly 5 hours one day and I truly enjoyed myself. It has tons of replay value, if you want to explore every potential path. I personally, only had interest to play twice through. There were some story-lines I was not interested in exploring.
However, for those 5 hours, this was a fun experience. Every now and then it’s nice to play something that is not made to feel like a cinematic movie.
If you like decision based games or books, this story will be a fun afternoon.
