Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom for PSP Review

Gear Diary
15 May 2012
  • Excerpt: This “visual novel” provides a very unique, narrative experience from Japan where choose-your-own-adventure-type choices rule over button mashing gameplay. The Hype Japan’s Edo Period was drawing to a close.
  • Pros: challenges traditional gameplay (no gameplay, fighting, etc.), introduces otome Games (specifically created for a female audience) to U.S./North American audiences, interesting characters, strong story, multiple endings, high replay value, learning about Japanese history
  • Cons: spelling errors in the text translation, more choices/chances to make Chizuru a stronger heroine

Review: Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom (Sony PSP)

  • Excerpt: I know, right? Normally I review a game in the first week it comes out. Unfortunately for Hakuoki , it came out while I was on my honeymoon and when I came back I had other, more current games (tabletop and video game) to review. So too bad for Hakuoki .

  • Conclusion: Since when did Hijikata of the Shinsengumi swear like a sailor?
  • Pros: Gorgeous illustrations and plenty of heartthrobs for all persuasions.
  • Cons: A little lacking in the romance department for an otome game.

  • Conclusion: Less game, more interactive narrative: this curious and very distinct release weaves a lengthy tale of samurais and love to good effect
