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

VGChartz
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.

Wii Review - 'Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love'

WorthPlaying
26 April 2010
  • Summary: Sakura Wars is a Strategy RPG that features a unique sim-based story system. An in-depth storyline exists, much like in any other RPG; however, the player’s destiny in the game is not predetermined. Due to high demand, Sakura Wars will be available in a premium package which will include the Japanese voice track and a special art cover.

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love

Gaming Evolution
19 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is one of those titles that not everyone will run out immediately to pick up. It’s a great SRPG that took five years to finally reach our shores, and was and is well worth the wait. If you are into dating-sim styled RPGs and or have a history with the series, I recommend rushing out to your local retailer and picking up either the PS2 or Wii versions.
