The Superlatives user reviews :
I actually purchased this book. This is a sequel to the first Superlatives book. The story introduces a handful of new characters and a whole new world right from the beginning of the story. There is a lot of politics in this with factions vying against one another. My only complaint would be there were times where the narrative moved slower than I’d like it to and the romance was under developed. Those who like more political adventures with meaningful stats this is for you.
great story definitely on par if not slightly above the first my only problem is i missed my powers and didnt like having to rearrange the resonance constantly. also, seeing my team from the first game would have been great didnt see but 2 from last game. please keep future stories more superlative oriented. the conclave was cool but an unnecessary plot point. i think that my character could have handled things as a superlative with his team, but i understand due to the treaty stuff.
Immensely enjoyed this one. With one possible caveat, imo: it works best as a standalone game, sharing the Superlatives setting. When restoring a save, certain things (relationship flow, your former team unavailability) didn’t make a lot of sense to me. Plus the tone of story overall felt different, with superhero theme moved to background, which to me was more of a positive. Great work!
I really dig the first instalment and have been excited to sequel. I think the story itself is good, given the world building and interplanetary story. However, the new characters are not as appealing as the first one. I was expecting a continuation of MC’s story that I build in the first instalment. This is like a spin-off that I get from another perspective.
It’s a little different to the other choice-based novel games. Mostly in the way how characters perceive and feel about you. Nevertheless, aside from little hiccups to the plot and gameplay I have found myself greatly entertained and am satisfied with the overall game. I thank everyone involved in creating and releasing his novel game
The story was well thought-out and immediately brought me in but also had inexplicably amazing writing that got me attached to the characters in a way that I never thought possible. The choices that were given were clear and explicit while also giving an aura of mystery
Very good story, felt rushed a tad bit but enjoyed it through and through. Wish the romances were more in depth. Interested in a third installment. Really would make a good foundation for maybe a Netflix series or something.
