Where do I start with this wonderful, beautiful visual novel. The story is masterfully written and never once was I in the slightest bored. The music is amazing and fits so well with the story it's kind of scary! This visual novel is worth every penny you spend on it I feel this is the type of thing I would be willing to spend $60 on, you get an unforgettable experience and before you know it you will be playing it again and again.

I recommend this to everyone. Just when I thought you wouldn't be able to top the first Fault, the 2nd one just blows all logic out of the water. The feel train hits you hard in this visual novel.

Clannad and Fruits try to sell as $50 VN's but never has the depth or enjoyment I could get from the Fault series.

If I could describe episode two with just one word it'd be "fantastc". Episode still has the heavyness the first one had, but that's rather a matter of stlye than quality in my opinion. Great chracter developement, spectacular effects (for a VN), a lovely soundtrack and above all a really well written story which will draw you in. Hope for many future episodes. Simply a must have!

Like the first one, prepare a tissue or two.
Beautiful... and full of overwhelmingyness! A demn one of a sequel if I say so. I still have some mixed up feelings between happy, sad, and 'that feeling when you don't know what to do next' after the ending.

Recommended if you liked the first one, you must buy it.
Feel the pain for waiting the 3rd side to pop out.

Fault Milestone 2A maintains all of the strengths of its predecessor while ironing out much of the flaws. If Fault Milestone One was a 7/10, this would have to be a solid 9.

With much of the initial worldbuilding complete, there's a good deal less raw exposition than before. It's not entirely gone, of course; not by a long shot. This world is huge, and the characters of Fault are moving. But at this point, it's more welcome than anything; the details given in Fault Milestone One are enough to provoke your imagination, and at this point you actually want the information to help fill in the blanks.

The art and soundtrack continue to be amazing. The 3D camera system is used to much, much better effect in this installment, particularly when Ritona uses Heavy Rain and when Melano breaks the fourth wall.

The old cast continue to be amazing. Rune in particular takes the spotlight again, when our narrator is abruptly taken from the story. Substantial character development is shown from Rune's thoughts and personality, and we learn quite a bit about Selphine.

New protagonist characters are introduced; and in one of the glaring disappointments of Fault Milestone 2A, I don't really like them. This is mostly because I was too enamored with the original trio, so I'm not sure how much of this criticism is actually valid. But, anyways, I don't really care for them. Thankfully, they don't take up much space at all.

We're left with the plot and the way it is presented now, which was the glaring weakness of Fault Milestone One.

Fault Milestone Two solves this problem.

First of all, the story is now told in the present. As the backstory of Rune has been thoroughly established, we move on to more present character specifications; like Selphine's Path Down and the limit of Rune's body.

The plot as a general thing is moved forward well; the pacing is excellent, because the mix of social commentary, exposition, plot, and character interaction blends very neatly. That's all that really needs to be said, I think.

The social commentary expands from Fault Milestone One; the concepts of humanity and morality are massively expanded, as are the gaps between the poor and the privledged. Compassion, revenge, and emotion as a general topic are heavily involved in the series; this installation of Fault Milestone is far more emotionally thrilling and breathtaking than its precedent and are what make the series shine so brightly.

Fault Milestone 2A vastly improves upon its precedent, and the series will only get better from here.

If you liked Fault Milestone One, you'll love Fault Milestone 2A.

If you like the first, you'll like this too. It's shorter though, probably due to the less time spent on explaining lore. The formula generally hasn't changed though.

Hands down absolutely amazing. Even better than the first installment!

I love how they make references to structures and things in the real world, elaborate on the divide between rich and poor, people's struggles, the value of life, money, compassion, selfishness etc. The story itself is also very intriguing and extremely flexible which is something that really aids in its originality.

The soundtrack was beautiful with some tracks returning from the first visual novel and some new ones. What really stood out most of all was the visuals which, improved immensely. These two aspects were able to create very emotional and gripping moments within the story.

The story still leaves me with many unanswered questions so I sincerely hope a next installment will be released. I cant wait for the next one!

Hands down the best visual novel i have ever read. The characters are wonderful, the world well thought off and well fleshed out. The music matched the scenes perfectly. If i had a gripe it would be the abrupt ending. I cannot wait for the next segment of fault. The ending in fault 2 is truly spectacular.

I have read the 日本語(Japanese) version and this is a review of Fault Milestone Two:Above, a Fantasy;Science fiction Visual Novel, a direct continuation of Fault Milestone One.
Developed by ALICE IN DISSONANCE and translated by Sekai Project.

The Visual Novel starts off with a recap movie of Fault Milestone One as a refresher and continues off from Fault Milestone One left off where Selphine change her personality, to a more ruthless personality that is a consequence of the combination of her lineage, a defense mechanism that comes with "Path-Down"(Empress Syndrome).

The Story
It picks off from the cliffhanger, Fault Milestone One left while travelling to another land and getting their tracks stopped by Melano a omnipotent as she casually negates Ritona's magic with no effort, and with an equal amount of effort, nukes the entire continent with one spell, before bringing everyone back to life and rewinding time to just before she cast thatspell, and then implanting the memories of both thespell and three years of the aftermath into their heads.

Then the game breaks the "fourth wall" by forcing the game to close and reopens after Melano cast her spell to destroy the Outer-Pole completely and then you get to click the "Undo" button after the game reopens looking at Melano staring right at the camera, showing that everyone have died and proving how powerful she is.
Then Melano states that "there won't be a 'undo' next time". I personally find this feature of theirs is really unique in a sense that it sends a solid message of one strenghts.
The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You. ;)

Audio and Visual elements
Visual elements - CGs are really good with extremely polished backgrounds and the animated scenes (Cinematic Novel) are very fluid really of high quality of work being put in there, breaking free from the static nature of many visual novels out there, and adding depth and motion to a scene to create a more dynamic emotional response. It honestly felt like watching a anime with all the camera movement and selective focus on parts to create motion.

Character design - Their clothing are coloured with colours of gems for example (white and purple) and some supporting chracter have royalty colour on them which suits the setting in the Visual Novel.

Audio elements - There is no voice acting, but the music are on a complete different level it perfectly sets the mood and it belongs in the situation of the environment which it was a joy to listen to in fact i found myself just pausing occasionally just to listen to the music which is something i rarely do, while the sound effect perfectly depict all the action that is going on in the background.

To sum up
If you are looking for a high qulity Visual Novel with indepth discussion of culture with fluid writing that is never dull while talking about real world problems like discrimination of the rich and the poor.

Do not give this Visual Novel a miss.

A note: The game grew outside what the developers originally intended, and it was announced that fault milestone two will be split into two parts, Fault Milestone Two side:above and Fault Milestone Two side: below.

Please note too that this novel is a direct sequel to fault milestone one and contains massive spoilers of the first story. Play through of the first title is highly advised.

Absolutely beautiful. Readers who enjoyed Fault Milestone 1 will absolutely adore Milestone 2. In the first five minutes, the story immerses you back into a world of magic and fantasy. New visual aspects aid the readers mood and the sound effects are spot on. Storywise, there should be no surprise to feel absolutely enveloped by it. Readers who have experienced the first part will also notice that certain details get a little kinkier than last time, which is no problem to me. The game does not diverge at all from its original tone and actually gets deeper and deeper into the fantastic fantasy world. The history can be seen to slowly unravel and the quaint little town setting of the first one is changed into a much bigger, broader world, full of new adventures. Best of all, we get to delve into the engrossing expeditions of the adorable (yet brave and breathtaking) heroines, Selphine, Ritona, and Rune! There is no doubt that the Fault series can be enjoyed by both beginners and veterans to visual novels!

For you that just want a quick review, i say this as simple as possible. This kinetic novel story, is the best that i have ever read. The character development, the plot, the art, the music, its all done professionally and beautifully craft. You should buy and read the first one and also buy and read the second one. Now, if you still need more reason, Let me tell you in this long wall of text.

First thing first, the character development is.. wow. Its very good, you will know, care, and feel connected with the characters after you done with this kinetic novel. Usually in a lot of anime or visual novel, the way they tell the ruthless character to soften up is to change their personality instanly once they soften up, but this kinetic novel managed to make the ruthless character stay ruthless, but giving her a deep and logical reason of why she is ruthless. There is no one dimensional characters in this kinetic novel. It managed to makes me care with every characters even the evil one, and also makes me curious about others characters that the kinetic novel still didn't tells. Every characters have a reason to do what they do, even though it feels wrong at first, that is the best part of the characters.

The plot is well done as well, because it depends on the characters and as i said above, the characters development is really good. Although the plot didn't have the "Unique" stuff like the first one have, it is still engaging and also fun while also very touching and might makes you cry. I have to say this however, this one is also leaving a lot of unanswered plot point while didn't really answered the first one. Unlike the first one however, the plot give the main character a better reason of why they do what they do, why they help the people along the way even though their freaking kingdom is in danger !

The art and the visual as you see on the store page is very nice and beautifully drawn, it what makes me even try this title when it first came out. Like i said on my fault milestone 2 demo review, they have a freaking battle cutscene !! In a kinetic novel !!! All the battle CG feels alive and engagging which is really good, not a lot of visual novel could do that to me, to make my imagination fill in the blank. In my mind, the battle CG plays out like an anime instead of still pictures.

I don't know how to comment about the music, but i know when a background music is good and did their job well, and this novel background music did that both. they help me connect to a scene, like a sad scene or a fight scene. One of my dissapointment however, its the lack of voice acting. A lot of jokes felt flat because of it, because i know i would have laugh out loud if i heard the intonation of the characters when they said this funny stuff.

Soo, yeah ! Recommended to the highest degree. If you enjoy visual novel and reading, be sure to buy this. If you enjoy an epic and touching story, be sure to buy this. Just buy this already ! Steamkravter, buy this ! ^-^

Fault 2 is a sequel to Fault 1, so you should play the first one before this

Compared to fms one, fault milestone two side:above is short (i completed this in 5 hour) but more straightforward, with less mystery and more emotion.
Art is as good as fms one and there's more CG. Music fits the scene perfectly and the character development is really good.

Simply put, this VN is fantastic

Pros
+ Emotional Story
+ Beautiful art and wonderful cinematic camera system
+ Character development
+ Fantastic soundtrack
+ High Production Value
+ Strong Villain she can destroy the entire continent alongside with your faultms2a.exe using a spell, then rewind time to just before she cast the spell

cons
- No voice acting :((( (This game is too great not to get Voice Acting)

Final score 9/10
10/10 if Ritona and Rhegan get VA
