Summary: I've been an anime fan for about 25 years, having started in on it back in Jr. High School. The selling slogan for this game was spot on. Ever wanted to be the main character in an Anime series? Well...here's your chance! With all the trappings of the better anime series, from a somewhat lost and clueless hero, to having to take such a wide away of personalities, earn their trust and help them work together.
Summary: We finally get a fully translated and localized game in the long running Sakura Wars series. The story is excellent, with characters you actually care about. The gameplay is very well done, too- I'm usually someone who usually avoids strategy games, but this doesn't feel like a typical strategy game probably because you're not limited to a typical grid- you have much more freedom.
Summary: i loved every minute of this game. It was the best game ever. Although the battle gave me some helI,I love the adventuring and the building friendships, the strategy needed for this game is immense and should be played only by strategists.if your not a strategist, try another game. But since I'm a strategist I loved it. The best ps2 game I've played. I'm Yune Goddess getting all up in your views -snap-.
Summary: Sakura Wars 5 is an excellent game, both for old players and newcomers. Unlike Tokyo or Paris, the game resets the stage at New York in the 20s. One thing I like about this series is that it injects so much energy into the player that when he or she plays, it totally changes the atmosphere of the room. The characters are all distinguished; and they interact with the player quite well, almost as if they are real people with real concerns in their lives.
A pleasant surprise that has finally reached the U.S.

Summary: This game is a real treat at the end of the PS2's lifespan. All I knew about Sakura Wars before I played 'So Long, My Love' was it had multiple anime productions I was never interested in and it was a long running games series in Japan. But NISA's premium edition release in the States was enough to pique my interest and give it a shot. Furthermore, members of the development teamed worked on Skies of Arcadia and Valkyria Chronicles, two other great games.
Summary: The Sakura Wars series is as close to being able to play an Anime as you can get, especially outside of Japan! The game is divided into episodes, each of which focuses on a specific character or story arc just like an Anime series. There are even eyecatches (which allow you to save your game, monitor relationships between characters, etc) and next episode previews. Don't let the strategic RPG combat fool you: The focus of the game is to play your role in the storyline.
Summary: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love Premium Edition I have long been a fan of NISA and the games they have localized to the NA audience, and Sakura Wars: So Long My Love is another in a long line of excellent releases for the PS2. When i began to see previews of the game and found out it wasn't only based on my favorite genre(RPGs/SRPGs) but also a dating sim, i knew i had to have it for my PS2 library.
Summary: As many of you might have heard, or seen on many websites. Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love (hereafter Sakura Wars V) is most likely going to be the last RPG released for the PS2, all 10 other games coming out for the system are either expansions to FF11 or movie games/sport games. With that being said, Sakura Wars V is an absolutely amazing game, I can honestly say I cant remember the last time I enjoyed a PS2 game this much!
Summary: Since no one is writing a review i guess i will. Just to let everyone know, i have not beat the game yet. I'm taking a little break from it. I will tell you what i think about the game so far. I really didn't know how this game would play. it's just like a normal strategy RPG except your characters don't level up. I have to say this game plays more like a dating sim, which is pretty cool.
Summary: You know, I've played plenty of games in my life. Many were either based on or wanted to be movies, books, tv shows, or, more than any of those, animes. But never have I played a game that did such a good job that I actually feel like I'm both playing an incredible game AND watching a humorous (if more than a little silly) anime. Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love nailed it. The game is seperated into episodes, which is what they feel like.
