“An exemplary visual novel with a thrilling premise, memorable characters, and a fantastic "true" ending that may very well move you to tears.”
8/10 – Destructoid

“In the end, Steins;Gate is simply a fantastic visual novel. It has great characters which you can't help but come to care about and a complex and interesting time travel system which draws you in and never lets go. Add to these elements a plot that is equal parts tense and heartwarming and you have a modern classic. If you call yourself a sci-fi or time travel fan, you must play Steins;Gate.”
