Dangerous Fellows isn’t a bad game, but it requires you to grind and waste time for all endings. Or just for you to open your wallet.

I really wanted to like this game, and although it’s hardly a bad game, it does something I hate. It forces you to waste time. The actual story is relatively long, but even if you skip through most of the dialogue it’s annoying to get enough gems to get a good ending.
It’s a time killer, definitely. If you have time to grind, it will probably be worth the effort. I don’t have that time, nor do I want to spend money on this game.
The story isn’t bad, it was quite interesting and mysterious. It was hard to figure out who you could trust and who you couldn’t. Of course, unless you finish the entire game, you won’t actually get the full plot and the “final” good ending.
You also need to answer specific ways to have a chance to get an ending with one of the guys.
My recommendation is to just play through the game once, then read up on the different endings. It’s not worth to spend all the time or money to get all the endings. It’s fun once, but then it’s just repetitive. Especially since repeating the game once will not give you an ending with a guy.
The characters are well-written enough and each have set values. One is not talkative so certain dialogue options suit him better. One is sweet and supportive, so some answers suit him better.
Certain characters were typical “bad guys” and you instantly knew they’d end up as zombie fodder. The main characters were well-written, and I suppose that’s what counts.
Score: 17 of 25 ~ 3.2 of 5 stars.
