Review: Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi (Sony PSP)

  • Summary: Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi is a decent Musou game featuring Hakuoki characters. If you’re looking for plot, stick with Demon of the Fleeting Blossom . For those looking for a portable Musou game, this isn’t the worst choice. Characters don’t have much in the way of moves or combos to differentiate them, and character models, backgrounds, and stages get recycled a lot. This mostly appeals to those who are already fans of the Hakuoki franchise.

  • Excerpt: It pains me to say this, but a combination of lazy writing, ugly visuals, and less than mediocre mechanics make Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi a huge disappointment, and runs the risk of being an irremovable black mark on what seemed like a promising new series.
  • Pros: The first game did well enough to warrant further localization efforts
  • Cons: Screams “lazy franchise cash-in,” but there isn’t much of a franchise to cash in on yet

Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi

2 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Thomas Nickel meint: Interessiert Ihr Euch für die Thematik, raten wir Euch eher zum Kauf des ersten ” Hakuoki – das punktet mit schönen Charakter­designs und gut erzählter Geschichte. In der Fortsetzung tritt die Story zugunsten austauschbarer Metzel-Action in den Hintergrund. Die spielerisch recht simplen Gefechte gegen Dutzende von Gegnern sind nicht direkt schlecht, aber so gewöhnlich, dass sie das Gesamtwerk einige Sympathiepunkte kosten.
