In case you didn't get enough birds in the last game, this is definitely enough to sate that lingering craving. Though it wasn't as much of an emotional rollercoaster as BBL was (in my opinion), this was still fantastic and chock full of quality content - an engaging, emotional storyline with some of the best character interaction, the typical humor (and semi-surprising sad parts) we've all come to expect from the game ... and this isn't even touching on all of the extra content that unlocks as you play through.

Definitely a must play for any Hatoful fan.

Hatoful Boyfriend -Hatoful complete edition-
$3.97 / 432 JPY
The full version of the world's greatest pigeon dating visual novel, in English.

Back when I first played the demo, all I could think was "haha, pigeon boyfriends!" And then things got serious. There was plot. There was drama. And I fell in love with birds through it all.

And the complete edition? It brings all of that and more. The demo version left a lot of loose ends, which the full does a perfect job of tying together. This game is full of humor, but does a brilliant job of sobering up, especially once you start up the Hurtful side of things (and that route is so very aptly named). The characters are all unique and have amazing personalities, and the PC is probably one of the best (what with her hunter-gatherer instincts and such) - you'll definitely grow attached to them. The plot is like a roller coaster ride at times, and replaying the dating aspect after completing the Hurtful route just adds another level of depth to to the game, shedding new light on the birds. There's a certain complexity to this game that I never saw coming, and it was a joy to experience, even through all the dramatic feelings I had for the characters.

Can I really express how good this game is? Probably not. It's certainly unique, and it's definitely got enough content in it to be more than worth the money spent on it. Yeah, you're going to romance some birds - but really, it's the best love there is.
