A Nice Otome Game With a Good Story
26 June 2014
Summary: Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi is a text-heavy otome visual novel game with a Japanese historical theme. If you are looking for a game with a lot of gameplay and quick gratification, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a visual novel game with a good, dramatic story, then you may be interested in Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi. In this game, you play as a girl who winds up under the protection of the Shinsengumi warriors.
Summary: If you're a huge otome/dating sim fan, this is the game for you. The artwork is gorgeous and you get a history lesson. If you're not into basically reading a book for a game and making the occasional decision, then this isn't the game for you.
Summary: I bought this game, but couldn't play it on my European 3DS because it is apparently restricted to the US only. Apparently the 3DS is Nintendo's first handheld to do this and there is no way to circumvent this unless you want to hack into your 3DS. The seller did not mention this restriction on the information page.
Summary: Ok I haven't played that far but.... still this game rocks. It is also worth a good chuckle. It sucks that the protagonist (you) doesn't have a voice. Even though the voices are all Japanese it would of been cool. I'm a bit disappointed with the camera feature. I was hoping for in game picture taking. The gore isn't bad, it's more so PG-13 , the cursing isn't too bad either. Limited Edition Bonus: The fan is so cute, but I'm afraid it will fall apart.
Same game as PSP Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom

Summary: What do fans of Hakuoki need to know? This game is the same story as the PSP version (Demon of the Fleeting Blossom) released in 2012. There is an extra mini section of story from the viewpoint of the men, but just a mini bonus. If you have that...you have this. It seems that every single reviewer is new to this series and doesn't seem to realize that there was ever a PSP version. What do other people need to know? This is a visual novel.
A great game for VN lovers, whether History's your thing or not!

Summary: I absolutely adored this game. Personally, I'm not a fan of history, so the idea of a historical game made me a bit hesitant. But the recommendation of this one by a friend was the last little push I needed to get it. And wow, am I glad I did. The characters are dynamic and interesting and you even find yourself wishing some of the characters without routes were datable too. :) On top of that, the voices were well done and the art is beautiful.
Summary: love the game but sometimes it freezes, and then it freezes my ds, and it makes me scared to play it for to long so I don't get to enjoy the game play as much, if it wasn't for that I would give it 4 stars and be totally addicted!
Summary: POSSIBLE SPOILERS! On the face of it, Hakuoki looks like an engaging and beautifully crafted game. Heck, for the first couple of chapters, it's just that. The intermingling of historical goodies, sci-fi elements, and romance is enough to lure anybody in, right? Sadly this game ended up pulling the ol bait and switch on me. Hiding behind its art and intriguing synopsis, Hakuoki failed on almost all fronts. The story?
