Test Sakura Wars So Long My Love

Generation NT
28 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Disponible depuis 2005 au Japon, Sakura Wars : So Long, My Love se présente aujourd'hui comme une production techniquement dépassée. Bien loin des standards de la Wii, le titre de Sega propose une modélisation 3D assez pauvre et étonnamment mal optimisée. En effet, il n'est pas rare que quelques animations (notamment en combat) mettent en évidence de lourds ralentissements, tout en accélérant significativement les accès au disque.
  • Pros: Système de combat bien construit, Bonne gestion des relations, Belles cinématiques, Les thèmes musicaux
  • Cons: L'utilisation Wiimote / Nunchuk inadaptée, Réalisation 3D datée, Pauvreté des bruitages, Manque de liberté d'action, Trop de dialogues pour peu de combats, Scénario peu original, Voix anglaise, texte anglais uniquement

Review: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love (Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
21 September 2010
  • Summary: The Sakura Taisen series is considered to be one of, if not THE best, RPG series of all time when it comes to consistent levels of excellence and nothing showcases that aspect more than when Nippon Ichi can take a five year old PS2 game, port it to the Wii and have it outclass every other RPG for that system.

Pretty Girls and Mechs? Not as Awesome as it Sounds

18 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The dating simulation is the high point. In a game about giant mech fighting.
  • Pros: The dating simulation "Adventure Mode."
  • Cons: Long battles, followed by even longer boss fights, without a break. (Or a save point).

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love Wii review

Console Obsession
26 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Despite being an old and beloved series in Japan, it’s easy to see why publishers haven’t exactly been queuing up to localize Sakura Wars for the west. It’s a curious mixture of strategy and character interaction, a concoction that doesn’t have the same appeal over here as it does in Japan. Thanks to NIS Europe, those with a Japanese taste in gaming are finally getting a mouthful with Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love, and, god, does it taste funny.

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love (Wii) - Review

21 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Sakura Wars is one of those games where you feel like you're playing an anime, specifically in this instance it’s like playing Voltron squished together with Tenchi Muyo. You pilot giant robots trying to save the world while working together with a large group of women who can all act as love interests.

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love Review

14 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is a strategy role-playing game that cleverly mimics Japanese animation, presenting a highly original and hilarious adventure. The game unfolds like an interactive anime, implementing wild situations and comical characters. Genuinely amusing dialogue highlights the game's events, but combat and minigames take a back seat to the text, producing an overall passive tone that somewhat limits its appeal.
  • Pros: Entertaining plot and characters, Multiple dialogue paths and endings, Attractive animated sequences and portraits, Novel friendship concept
  • Cons: Poor minigames, Limited exploration, Slow-paced, occasionally buggy combat, Lackluster 3D environments
