Great Value for Money

Sep/24/2019   By JJM Top Reviewer: Top400 Verified Buyer

Loved it!

This game is great value for money - there are hours and hours of content here and lots of H-scenes and CGI's and animations. The story itself is divergent with multiple paths and endings that take you to different areas and missions instead of just retreading the same scenes with different options. It's quite well done.

The art content and the vocal sound track are both top notch and the scenario writing is good as well. Even the overall plot of the game is on part with a good visual novel, so you can tell the developers took pride in making a solid piece of entertainment and not just an nukiage type H-game.

There are two downsides to the game in my opinion - First is that the battle system is too easy and while there are a lot of interesting items and power ups they are all mostly useless because of this. I know some people do not want to have any 'challenge' in their H-RPG games, but the developer already includes a difficulty mode selector (normal and easy) so it's disappointing that 'normal' is so easy.

Secondly, the divergent paths require you to lose fights to unlock the content, which is something I think is a bad game design decision that most people are starting to move away from. Still, once you complete the game and start a new game + you are able to select the divergent path from a menu upon changing chapters. Because of this it's recommended to play the first time all the way through as a 'good' and non-H character to unlock those endings, then on the new game+ work on a slutty and evil character. At least that's my opinion.

Not sure if we have SakuraGame to thank or not for giving this game more care on this release than the others just as contrast to the past, but this one has been given a coherent translation (Can't vouch for the English Translation) and it's quite refreshing. No crashes/errors either. Perhaps this is their way of saying thanks for bearing with them and the bugs associated with the translation of the other games:

If you've played Marauder of Dystopia (Killing Time), Dark Elf Historia, or Botsuraku Reijyo (The Heiress), expect more of the same type of gameplay / game / branches / art but with some Refinements.

I might be dreaming it but the battle animations feel a lot more fluid, the resolution might've gotten a boost since the prior games, and lastly the two vocal tracks in the soundtrack really show the care in the production. They are simply great and grounds alone to get it.

Biggest gripe I'd say on the anthology I'd say is sometimes the dungeons/etc seem a bit long and if you're going for 7/10 endings you will need to play through the game at least 3 times. Some dungeons feel recycled from the other titles as well but I can't vouch for certainty. I suppose it's fine if they're cutting this corner to channel work into everything else which really shines, but if you're not a fan of the avoid monsters run which most of the levels consist of, you'll have to bear with it a lot.

It'd be cool if more cutscenes were able to skip like the h scenes to reflect that, maybe some dialogue to be a bit lengthier than needed, but some of this might come down to translation and pacing so some of the avoidable may be indeed unavoidable. Can't say for sure.

All in all DLSite / 111 should be very proud of this one. For some reason this title isn't in their circle list. Play this one for the story / production / vocal tracks. I didn't go over the story much, but goes into comedy many times, serious at others. No spoilers, you should grab this game and enjoy.
