A Mage Reborn Book 1 is written by Adam Alamsyah and published by Hosted Games, one of the platforms where you can find some of the best choice-based games in the community. As for book 2, it's still in the process of rewriting. With that out of the way, let's continue with the review.
1. How would I rate this game storywise, gamewise and it's choice-based system?
Differently from what you'd encounter from other HG games, this one starts it's story by making the fate of the mage known from the very beginning. It makes use of the flashbacks the mage is recalling during their stasis state, in order to show to the player how things ended up this way. The romance and friendship moments are very satisfying.
From the first flashback, the player is presented with the customary aesthetic customization options along with the magic area proficiency choices in the form of the gift they are given by the good old woman of the inn they are staying in.
While the relationship stats do exist, they don't play as much of a role in the way the other characters interact with the mage, as much as the choices you decide to make during the dialogues between them.
On the other hand, the "Other abilities" and "Magical Abilities" stats, do play a role on the combat scenes and "help scenes" where if you don't meet a certain threshold, some options will not be available for the player to choose. "Other Abilities" stats play a major role on the flashbacks where the mage is in the Parami court, deciding on how the mage is perceived by the other nobles.
Due to the nature of stories of the fantasy genres which include magic, each with their own take on it, there's a "Magical Codex" section which explains, in detail, the magic types/abilities along with the "World History" explaining the lore and worldbuilding.
While there are choices which will increase or decrease the stats, there is a lot of "fake choices" too, of which I'm not fond of.
2. Which sort of players would you recommend it to? Those that have read my reviews, will have an idea of who I'm going to recommend this game to: fantasy genre lovers! I'd also recommend this game to those who seek good romance routes with an angsty ending (you will be reunited in book 2 don't worry).
