Pros
Cons
Interesting sub-stories and memorable characters .
Well-written dialogue that ranges from thought-provoking to downright shifty.
Multiple endings.
Lina’s emotional state can affect the dialogue choices you can make.
Chill vaporwave soundtrack is a mood-setter.
Anti-corporation narrative is ham-fisted and a bit pretentious; some cringy lines of dialogue reflect this.
Stiff facial animations.
Difficult to stay both financially afloat and maintain your user review score.
Not a particularly lengthy title.

Verdict:

Neo Cab is a wonderful visual novel with many great stories to share and thoughtful conversations to take part in. Admittedly, it’s not a lengthy title, and some of the major themes are pretty on-the-nose at times, yet it’s immersive enough to justify a purchase, and a second or third replay.
