"One of the best games of all time."
Indeed, one of the best. The fact that is a hentai game merely...makes it appeal to a certain audience. (hentai=Japanese for perverted/Adult)
It is a dating game. You play a student at college and generally live your life. Except that this guy seems to get more chances at sex than most do in a lifetime.
A major thing to consider is that this game, although for the PC, is smaller than some SNES games. This game could technically have been ported to the SNES. Impressive, non?
Graphics - 9/10
Very clear anime style. The H-scenes are interesting and not just lewd pornography (notice the just). Also the changing expressions and nice transitions add up to a very smooth appearance. The 9 is just as a game, as a hentai game it is above the competition (lol, like Miss world) and really deserve that score.
Sound - 9/10
The music is overall quite perky and is mostly made up of slightly synth styled notes. There is a stereo on the menu, so you can hear any of the songs you have heard in game so far. And while each song is all clearly part of a theme, they each are unique and fit each girl and situation nicely. Arisa's for example is so perfectly like her personality.
Gameplay - 10/10
Unlike some games where you have to exhaust a menu of choices and labour back and forth during the day seeing the same things, you just select what you want to do during the day at the beginning. For example you might go to college in the morning and catch up on some shopping later on. Or work in the morning, do some personal groom in the afternoon and then go on the date you promised someone. During the day people will talk to you, bump into you if you happen to be in the right place at the right time or just have a laugh as you ineptly try to chat them up. And of course you do get to choose the answers from what you want to say. It is an open interface and it means you make a difference in the plot. Being able to save at the beginning of each day (and being prompted to do so before a very important day, or reminded of an event) is also very useful and saves frustration.
Replayability - 10/10
It is possible to do every single girl in the game. But unless you are one of those losers that must get a walkthrough after 2 hours playing, you won't. One of the girls is extremely well hidden and most require a bit of luck in going to the right place in the right day to bump into them. Plus, completing it over and over to get each girl for the end sequence is going to take a while.
Overall - 10/10 (9.5 rounded up)
Considering it is out on the net for free and is one of the best hentai games out, it is certainly worth a look. A very long look. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
(unless you are a total graphics junkie, ie without PS2 and up graphics you assume its a crap game.)
