Good game but....

Summary: since when do new games not come with cover art. I bought his game new from Amazon, but it did not come with cover art. If your a stickler about that kind of stuff beware...some games Amazon sell might not have the cover art.
Summary: Localization: 2/5 The game itself: 4/5 Hakuouki was very shoddily localized. The translations are amateurish at best, romanization of Japanese names is inconsistent, and typographical errors are rampant throughout the game. Hiring an editor, and maybe some professional translators, would likely have improved the localization considerably.
Summary: I was excited to see that an Otome game was comming to the US and quickly ordered when it came out. I was happy to hear the original japanese voice acting, which was top notch, and had beautiful game art and pretty settings. To the end it turned out to be a pretty decent visual novel though at times can be long winded in some scenes.
Summary: Well the first three chapters is pretty linear. You get a bit of dialogue change but stuff doesn't really happen until the later chapters. Even then, if you've watched the anime you can pretty much guess how things will turn out. There's no skipping already viewed parts so if you're buying this to get all the endings then you'll be in it for a while. Other than the replay value, it's not a bad game and you get to name the lead character whatever you wish.
