Definitely for a niche audience.

Summary: So a lot of people will say this is a adventure sim dating game with an RPG combat system, and they're right. Your squadmates are more powerful depending on the main character's relationship with each of your squadmates (which is affected by the player's decisions.
Summary: This game definitely isn't for everyone, but for its target (and I can tell that it's not a very huge target audience), it will deliver. I'm not yet sure where I stand with this game, but I can tell work was put into it. It's more story than action...by a long shot.
A nice excursion into the dating-sim/tactical battle game scene.

Summary: Other reviews have gone into way more detail about this game and its variety of systems, so I'm going to focus rather on my personal opinion and response to the game when I first played it. When first starting the game, I was amazed at how much it felt like I was playing an anime cartoon.
Summary: I haven't played through most of the game but it is fun. With that said I wasn't expecting this to be a dating sim-ish game. It does tie into the battles and story so that's something. Hopefully after playing through I will have enjoyed the whole game.
Summary: I had to give this game 4 stars, as much as I would love to give it a perfect score. As others have said this game is based much more on the relationship building and dialogue than battle, which I LOVED.
Summary: What really makes Sakura Wars special is the Live Interactive Picture System (LIPS). LIPS lets you pick what you say and ultimately change the course of the game to one of six different endings.
Summary: Developers: Sega/ Idea Factory (Wii) Publisher: NIS America Platforms: PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii Genre: Strategy RPG Rating: Teen Release Date: March 30th, 2010 Story Set in 1928 New York, Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love tells the story of Shinjiro Taiga as he tries to earn his place as a member of...
Summary: Can't give this a 5 star rating because it is not perfect, however this game has a lot going for it. The best way to describe this game would be to simply say its a cross between a anime and a rpg story game.
Summary: Nowadays, it seems that Japanese Role-Playing Games have grown stale and are not selling the way they used to, probably due to their unoriginal character designs (we now have more large-chested girls than we can count) and abhorrent level grinding (8 hours levelling up just isn't cool anymore).
