Entertaining enough The story is entertaining enough as it is. But your decisions matter fairly little. Most decisions have no direct impact on the story beyond altering a Stat or two. The outcomes are mostly predetermined. There's also a great number of poorly written/planned passages. "The Countess threw HIS knives..." for instance. Or how She's dead on my victory but yet she never died during the story, the hero's director did. I'd say buy this for a quick and interesting read. Second pass didn't change. Try MetaHuman.

Love this game This game is awesome it gives you a whole different perspective on your role not many games give you perspective of what its like to be the bad guy and i love how there is humor and it allows you to imagine each and every scene and the people in it. Btw fav joke in this is "personally im a big fan of heavy metal" XD i could play this game nonstop
It's great, but (spoilers) From the moment the drake pointed a flamethrower at my face and told me I was cute, I wanted a piece of that. As I realized his gender was set to be your preference, and how often you were given the option to flirt, I got hopeful I would be able to. But no. For some reason, he's not available. It's really disappointing to me.
Absolutely amazing I thought it was so cool the entire time. It's long and full of twists. It really shows how it is with being a villain. You want to rule everything but not everything goes as planned. Definitely worth your money
"Slow claps" SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL It was epic,but the ending was kind of sad.Because i can only save one freind,it would be awesome if we can return to earth.The four of us,maybe we can work together.
Hilarious, had me in tears laughing! I would be devastated to know the man who wrote this isn't writing another choice of games as I speak!
What a great find! Thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well written and not boring at all. A lot of humour too, especially Mindy and Biff. I wish there was more.
One of my absolute favourites! I have played nearly all Choice of and Hosted games here and this one is really one of me absolute favourites. The humour is brilliant and even if the story does not part paths, it is a game that I do come back to replay once in a while!
Decisions do not matter. They are either completely overridden or they don't matter. 0/10 do not play this.
Amazing Love all of the tounge in cheek humour of the choices especially the theatrical choices you have to choose from
Fun read Enjoyed this one. Good humour. Fun being the villain!
Cliffhanger Look, I know that you have to pay after 2 chapters but COME ON.
Fantastic ride hope the author makes another :)
A very fun game but... Not much in the realm of replayability. It's entertaining to play the first time through, but gets old after the second or third time. The only dramatic changes are the last decision you make in the game and isn't worth playing all the way through for a couple of extra paragraphs.
Boring and pointless The point of the choice-of series is to let you make a choice and present the consequences, good or bad, that you must then work with. This game presents you with many choices that make no difference to the outcome; if you choose to kill a character that the author didn't plan on you killing, the game just denies the event in the next page. If you can't write for the choices you present, don't bother offering them. Save your money and get one of the other games, I recommend The Sea Eternal.
Loved it! It's a legitimately fun game to play.If you enjoy interractive stories and enjoy riveting tales of villainry, you'll love it too! A real shame the free version only offers the first two chapters.
Don't play past the first two free chapters The game gets severely worse after the first two free chapters. There are way too many, better, choice games out there to waste time on this.
I would rate more if I could. This was absolutely amazing and has limitless replay value. The only thing I was disappointed with is that there's no Drake romance, but that doesn't diminish my love of this game at all.
Cool but... I know it's cheaper than a cup of coffee but saying free and then offering only two chapters annoys me and feels deceptive. So, no.
Very capturing It was really cool being the villain instead of the hero and the plot was amazing. Good enough to play how many times you'd like. Hope they make more games like this.
Disappointing I can deal with waiting a while to play and then them offering to let you skip that wait for a price, but having to pay to play the whole thing is just not cool.
Had me laughing But also confused at one point
Amazing This game is probably the best supervillan interactive story ever, I only wish that they had a superhero one just like it.
This game is perfect! I've never read a game be so hilarious! The references, I love them! There's a jokes like almost every third sentence. You're never really not given a choice. Even when told not to kill, you can make a bomb and set people on fire. I also love the fact that romance isn't something to worry about. This title is so much better than choice of robots, this makes CoR looks like a linear game! Best interactive story ever. Period.
It was a fun read... Unlike some other reviewers, I didn't really mind the lack of gender options because the ambiguity felt weirdly amusing and refreshing to me. The lack of explicit romance also didn't bother me because that wasn't what drew me to read this particular story. That and I don't care much for romance anyway, well at least in what I usually read. Also, what I really appreciated about this story is the fact that it's a hilarious read, at least to me.
Great but... The story was great and it gave the whole being evil thing in a better light. The fact that they had a little comedy in the story really have it a more human feel. However the romance was sub par at best with only a few scenes of actual romance and just a lot of flirting. If they did better with romance I'd give it 5 stars
Pretty funny, but romance was bad The game is pretty humorous to play through, especially the little snipets of internal dialog but I was extremely disappointed with the romance aspect. I felt like they should have either scrapped it or given it more attention. It felt rushed and like an afterthought and falls well below the expectations of other Choice of Games. Honestly the game could have worked better without it. All in all it's a fun little game but I don't see much replay value like other Choice of Games
Insert Diabolical Laugh Here Seriously a good read. You get to play as a bad guy and have all sorts of fun! Have to admit I laughed out loud several times throughout this story and enjoyed the range of options it presents you with. Will definitely play a few more times before revisiting it in the future :) I hope there's a second one and, if there is, I'd pay more if there is better stat charts and relationship stats to follow throughout the game.
Let down I'm a long time fan of Choice of Games. I still remember when the games were free. This game maybe me laugh a few times and the narrative was well written but the choices you make ultimately do not make much of a difference. A lot of events just happen and are given minimal importance. Compared to games like Zombie Exodus, Sabres of Infinity, the amazing Choice of Robots, this IF game was quite a let down and sub par what I would expect.
DEVS PLEASE READ Doesn't work I'm able to load the game up but after it shows the image of some pro/antagonists, it switches to a white background where the text is supposed to load up but doesn't. Devs please see this and try to fix this bug.
It's pretty good (Spoilers) It's a pretty good interactive novel. But I think its the fact that you actually have to look for the planning points that's kind of a bother. It seems kind of difficult to find a romantic relationship I think Steelheart and the Count but idk. If they are anymore kind of romantic relationships that can happen then I have not found them yet. There are grammar errors. It also feels like when you go through a plan you don't get much satisfaction on the outcome, like your being walked all over and really weak.
FREE Free 2 chapters were awesome but i am not willing to pay for something like this don't get me wrong choice games are my favorite thing to play but why do we have to pay? I know that it takes a lot of time to make this but some animated games take longer to make and more money AND ARE FREE.
Great fun game. Maybe need some work on romantic part The game looks great. More work on the relationship like the rest said. Steel heart sounds like some body I like to lock up on my dungeon as a trophy. Great comdey too. Hope this is fixed. Keep up the good work.
Do not claim you can choose your gender when it's not actually possible in the story. Really irritating. That said, there were very few errors and some genuinely funny moments, but neither are enough to save this from its overall mediocre plot and EXTREMELY rushed ending. Plan points are a joke and don't really change much(like most choices...) Romances were also an afterthought; potential was there but execution was not. Get Tin Star, CoR, or one of the other excellent IFs. Pass on this one.
Brilliant This writing is superbly done. It masterfully mixes humor (the news anchors were great), action, and thought. This would be an out and proud 5 stars if I felt like I had more control on my character initially. I don't like that I can't have a secret identity or determine my gender. It hints at a backstory that I found funny but never once says why who I am. I must applaud the ingenious way that you thoroughly flush out your character through playing and would love to revisit this story setting again.
Pretty awesome, but the romance was rushed. The overall game was pretty awesome, it's just a shame that the romance part was so rushed...it seemed more like an afterthought than an actual part of the story. All in all, I had a lot of fun playing this game, and it would be great if there were a part two.
Good but... The writing was good and so were the ideas, but for CoG LLC standards the romance was very disappointing, it looked like the writer just wanted to get over with it and return to the main story.
