Introduction:

Muv-Luv is actually two visual novels consisting of Extra and its pseudo-sequel Unlimited. Extra appears to be a fairly typical visual novel scenario with the player taking on the role of Takeru, a typical Japanese high-schooler who's completely unaware that his childhood friend Sumika is in love with him. One day he wakes up to find a strange girl in his bed, Meiya. She's the heiress to a large corporation and has designs on marrying Takeru, a fact that Sumika is not too pleased about. Unlimited takes place immediately after the events of Extra but with a sudden, serious and dark twist; Takeru wakes up to find himself in an alternate dimension where an alien race named the BETA have invaded Earth and killed off over 80% of the population. Meiya and Takeru's other female classmates are now military cadets in training and Sumika doesn't appear to exist in this dimension.

Set-up:

Both games are quite short but you're going to have to play through Extra from the start 5 times at least to get all 7 different endings. Unlimited only needs to be played through the once in full but you're going to want to save near the end so that you can reload and quickly do the other 10 endings. Don't worry, I'll tell you when.

If you're here just for the achievements then there's good news and bad news. The good news is that there is a fast skip option, the bad news is that you have to keep holding down the right trigger to keep it activated. During your later partial playthroughs, you could use auto skip (toggled on/off by right bumper) but IMO it runs the game slower compared to holding right trigger. In addition, auto skip will stop whenever it hits a new piece of dialog that it hasn't seen before (e.g. everytime you choose new dialogue options for the later walkthroughs) so fast skip is still a better choice if you ask me. Finally on this subject, there are a few scenes that the game doesn't allow you to skip regardless of auto/fast skip, you're just going to have to sit back and enjoy the Japanese voice acting there.

IMPORTANT: Whenever you finish/quit the game, be sure to save your system data by choosing the left hand option everytime it asks you a question. The achievements only unlock when the system data is saved and the game returns you to the title screen.
