The prequel to Fear Effect: a anime styled game with good voice acting, interesting characters, and a mature storyline. Spanning four discs just like Fear Effect, Retro Helix shows how the characters met, also adding a new character Rain who seems to be very close with Hana. The characters are all anime based again and the story-line is just as mature. This game plans to offer many more secrets and replayability then the first one. Load times, which was the biggest complaint of Fear Effect, have been reduced greatly. Looks to be a big improvement, and after playing the first I can't wait for it. Look for it on store shelves in winter.
