It's been awhile for me, but 999's focus is definitely on the branching routes, and it's super solidly plotted because of that. As far as I know, the other games follow that pretty closely.

About the comparison to Danganronpa--as somebody who has experienced both, I'd say that 999 has a much stronger story overall, while Danganronpa shines more when it comes to the individual mysteries/puzzles themselves. (Interestingly, Kotaro Uchikoshi and Kazutaka Kodaka, the writers for 999 and Danganronpa, respectively, are actually good friends. Though I think you might already know that.)

As for the final puzzle: That was actually changed from the DS version to the re-release. Spoilers for the final puzzle in both the DS version and re-release of 999, as well as spoilers for the overall plot.
