< report >Even if I keep reading bad reviews, I don't share the same idea. I did enjoy the battles mechanics and the sexual scenes are kinda nice if you like all those extreme sexual scene with tentacles, monsters, eggs, living clothes and such.
Yes the story it's weak but it's not worse than the average nukige. But the game has lot of potential gameplay wise so if you like the game mechanics, even without reading the story in depth, there are 17 endings to achieve and many difficulties to challenge yourself with. I'm actually on my 4th playtrough and I just build a treasure hunt/bounty hunter army to amass medallions, metals and gold to prepare to go for Niddhog difficulty.
I'm actually glad they released an english translation.Last modified on 2020-01-05 at 03:03

< report >My main gripe is that it is 50% action/introductions, 30% H, 10% "Intrigue" and 10% Character building which is not focused on either of the prior.

I really am no fan of action, especially shounen one which just has to be always a close call, where there is always a bigger baddy even though you can even decide the order which however does not matter.

And yes, the characters in VenusBlood (Abyss, Empire, Frontier, Hypno) never really gave me the feeling to love them or violate them. Being a bitch is not enough especially when everybody is and not really more than that. Lillicia is probably the sole exception, albeit barely.

I don't really recommend it, also based on the gameplay but one can decide themselves but do simply never expect it to be different to any other entry...

< report >Yes the game has lot of action so if you don't like that it's probably safer to stay away from this game, and yes there are deeper and better strategic games out in the world.

Despite the fatalism it's a game series so obviously shares a common theme between the games and this can be viewed both in a negative way but also in a positive way. For example I decided I'm gonna try another one after completing this one.
Not that any person buying bigger AAA games like a new Assassin's Creed is truly looking for something new either.Last modified on 2020-01-05 at 13:00

< report >im looking at content most of time, venus blood series offer something that we mostly seen in doujin (tentacle, slime etc)
Story wise, it was just okay as its certainly boring and predictable. Some character did frustating me (odin and jorm duh) but not really infruating tbh. Gameplay just meh, too much going on and isnt clear enough, yadayadayada. I just interested Into collecting the scenes and CGI, now i just done chaos route dang. I need 100% savedata lol

Overall, its just ok game. Not so good but no so bad either, especially for certain people who have certain fetish lol.Last modified on 2020-01-06 at 17:24

< report >I agree somewhat with aluswina. "the worst" is too strong, I'd say game is bland and the story and twists are garbage. I don't recommend this game to anyone.

Actually those 2 character are the one standing out for me together with Thor as the winner (even if the best sexual scene is won by Freya hands down) I guess not everyone has the same tastes. Also I don't understand why story should be considered SO important in a game like this... there are VN that just aim at a big and good story but fail at it. For me as I said the story was weak but it's not really what I was looking for when I started playing so there is not much disappointment on that side for me... I mean if story was good it was something of a plus. I prefer people rating this game badly because of "boring game mechanics" or the "lack of some particular fetish" then for it's story. It's like rating poorly a porn movie because actors didn't get married in the end.

I need 100% savedata
I can give you my savedata sadly I miss 1 CG...for god sake I cannot understand how to unlock it. It seems a Fena CG.

i am pretty sure #7 is aluswina with new account lol
Hopefully he is not, I don't see the point of hiding in the shadow...Last modified on 2020-01-08 at 21:34

< report >That's a fruitless claim anzzz , where did that even come from? I assure you. I'm not aluswina.
Like I said, saying this game is the worst is going too far. this game has a boring and bland story. I just replayed through the important bits and I can say that it has okay twists in it but not amazing by any nature.

@skorpiondeath Yeah well, thor is to be expected, you cannot go wrong with Thor in a story. I actually expected a game like Bunny Black or Evenicle, but those are far greater than this specific game in the series. The voice acting was top-notch, in my opinion(even though I don't know a bean of Japanese). ...Though there was a mishap in a Fena scene. the voice actor's cough was left in the audio.

< report >@phunk: nice to hear you share your own opinions on this game and I get your point of view and I respect everyone opinions on the game, I just wanted to give mines. Yes I loved Bunny Black but I haven't played Evenicle. Rightnow I'm waiting for Eiyuu*Senki GOLD english release, hopefully it will have a better story than this one but I assume sexual scene would be more vanilla.Last modified on 2020-01-10 at 20:40

< report >It's an average eroge with extensive gameplay. Building out your army can be quite fun. I don't like tentacles much, but there were less tentacles in this compared to Abyss, so I found it to be a big improvement personally. Anyways, you can count on your fingers the number of gameplay-focused eroges that release each year, and given the long-term decline, I'm expecting the market to completely die within the next 10 or 20 years. For me, playing eroges with decent gameplay is the closest thing I have to a life purpose, and I treasure everything I can get. When these stop being produced sooner or later, I'll probably kill myself.

I hope your kidding m8, I bet you'll soon find something more worth living for, maybe not that 'soon' but I'm quite confident you will in the future. Beaside you still have 10-20 years to find something!
And yes if you ask yourself this is one of those made up circumstantial phrases to try cheer you up without even knowing a fucking bit of your life, but it's not my fault... I cannot shut my mouth in front of such a degree of depressive thoughts.Last modified on 2020-01-11 at 15:24

< report >@12 You should try Japanese RPG-maker games - there a lot of them with decent gameplay and all of them have sex content, there also a lot of translated games (you can find them on ulmf or zone95).

< report >@anokutara I don't know your circumstances. but as an Ex-Homeless man, I can tell you that nothing is really impossible, I've worked and pushed through a whole lot of pain, stress, and tears. but In the end, I've pushed my limits and got things done. Now I have a home, small but it's my precious life accomplishment.

@skorpiondeath Oh damn, Eiyuu*Senki GOLD has some stunning art. I might buy it when it's released in English and give it a go, see what's what. I actually don't really care what happens in the sex scenes. since I'm not really playing these kinds of games for the sexual content. well, I am but not in the general way its purpose was made for. I only like to play eroge games with gameplay and story-filled world and characters because if I play those games without the sex scenes... I'd feel like I've missed something of the story and characters. Like what really happened???. You know? It's kind of a let down since they usually hint at a sexual act but after that, It cuts to black and the next day magically appears with them being shy about what happened last night... It's stupid.
