Feel and act like a very smart person!
One of the best things about playing games is that you get to become someone very special. It could be a hero who saves the world, world's best athlete, detective with an eagle eye, mighty solider, and so on.
This Danganronpa will make you a great debater.
You will be standing up and correcting other people's words, and proposing a right solution when discussion is stuck and going nowhere. You will really feel good about yourself.
Exciting school court
In Danganronpa, you're to go through a series of "investigation" and "court hearing" like a real trial. This trial is called school court in this game and is a lot of fun.
During the trial, when people speak out (fully dubbed by some great voice actors), their words hover on the screen like movie subtitles. You're to shoot them down with "kotodama" (translates to "bullets of words") to outdebate them.
This mixture of reasoning and action in the trial does make you feel like you tactfully outdebated them.
Completely unpredictable stories
The main plot of the game is this. Students that are trapped in the abandoned world will try to take away others' lives for survival.
Each one of them have got a very strong character and none of them look weak and fragile. So you'll be surprised, many times, when you see them actually becoming victims.
Not a smooth port
This game was originally designed for PSP platform and ported to Android. Some of the elements are not perfectly ported, and it'd be better if it recognized an external gaming pad.
There's a high resolution mode for the devices with high specs, but I recommend playing in the normal mode as my smartphone got really hot while playing.
