Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is the new installment of the series and followsv the anime abit then vers off in to in own story. Was ordered on Wednesday and quickly came by Friday into the mailbox very happy.
Pretty Solid Game if you a big SAO fan like me and love following the characters with an exciting combat system
The game covers season 3 in the underworld and expands upon the swordcraft academy arc which was awesome (too short in the anime IMO) but it doesnt cover whats happening in the real world of the anime which is fine (i would watch the first 3 seasons and the movie of the anime before playing)
Then after covering season 3 it branches off into an alterior story line, SO I WOULD DEFINITELY WATCH SEASON 4(the final season) before you play the alternate story line, im a few hours in it and it seems really fun, just waiting for the show to finish to get back innit
Conclusion: i suggest you watch it, its my all time favorite show and the final season (4) is currently airing... its amazing, great characters, brilliantly done VR worlds, top tier action an animation, breathtaking emotional and epic moments, story has depth especially the last 2 seasons
LAST THING, there is 1 movie(Ordinal Scale) and it takes place inbetween season 2 and 3 and is a actual arc in the story! (Its so good)
While the game is not perfect I did find a lot of enjoyment in it. The first chapter of the game is like an interactive movie that goes through the Alicization arc. It dragged at times but Alicization is my favorite arc so far so I didn't mind going through it since it has been a while since I saw the anime. If you are a SAO fan then I would say it is worth buying. It has tons to do and there are a wide variety of weapons, the bow is my favorite. There is just something cool about seeing Kirito slaying monsters with bow skills. The music is fantastic and really adds to the mood of the game, the locations are all very interested and pretty varied. The map is big considering the previous entries and lots of costumes to unlock. Not a perfect game, it has flaws but so far it is my favorite SAO game and I really enjoyed it!
