  • Conclusion: Five years is quite a wait for a PS2 game. Only the most dedicated would care about it at this point and that's quite a shame. They're missing out on the last great PS2 game.

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love review (PS2)

HonestGamers
22 April 2010
  • Excerpt: One definitely has to give credit to the Japanese for their ability to appeal to a wide range of sexual tastes. There’s a female here for everyone. There’s the plucky and inexplicably clumsy redhead, the big-breasted and flirtatious blonde maid, the fiery black-skinned beauty, and a ten year-old. These, and other women, will team up with the Japanese hero to form the Combat Theater Revue to promote justice through the art of song and dance...

  • Conclusion: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is one of those titles that not everyone will run out immediately to pick up. It’s a great SRPG that took five years to finally reach our shores, and was and is well worth the wait. If you are into dating-sim styled RPGs and or have a history with the series, I recommend rushing out to your local retailer and picking up either the PS2 or Wii versions.

  • Conclusion: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is a great niche release if you're into Japanese games that are heavy on anime, SRPG, and dating. For those gamers, they will find a polished, if not perfect, localized title with a lot of content and reason to comeback.

  • Excerpt: JRPGs are like Lost . Those who love them can't get enough and won't shut up about them. Those who don't, see them as a cultural anomaly that can't go away quick enough. Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is one of these titles, so if you count yourself as part of the latter group, jump on over to another review now... you won't like what the game has to offer and I doubt much will sway you.

Review: Sakura Wars: So Long My Love (Playstation 2)

Diehard GameFAN
14 April 2010
  • Summary: : Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is probably the last great game the PS2 will ever see, and if this is the note the system is to go out on, well, that’s not so bad at all. The game is a real treat for RPG fans, between its engaging and well written story, its surprisingly pleasing and well designed graphics and its aurally pleasant and fitting audio.

  • Excerpt: It took five years, but after a lot of hassle and fighting, someone has brought Sakura Taisen V to the US. Sure, we never got any of the other games, but it's still a groundbreaking achievement. And who better to localize it than NIS America? Yes, in the back of your minds, you're probably listing a whole host of other companies you wish would have done it. And given NIS America's track record with localization (not exactly perfect), you might be worried.

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love

Game Revolution
1 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Ai Love New York. There's a scene in the brilliant Age of Sail movie Master and Commander in which a young midshipman, aboard a Royal Navy frigate, ponders his admiration of two very different elders—a thin, bookish naturalist, and a beefy, rough-and-tumble ship captain. The boy muses: “Perhaps I could combine them, to be a sort of... fighting naturalist.
  • Pros: Unique tri-style mash-up of genres, Animé movie-scenes in dual voice-overs, Character-bond 'branching', multiple endings, Pokes fun at ethnic stereotypes, Long patches of "hit the button to continue", PS2 game largely, Dialogue can sometimes d-r-a-g on
