It's not Hakuōki. Stop complaining. People seem to forget that the characters from Hakuōki did exist in real life - though they most likely weren't such bishies. This game uses the same names of said real life people and fits them into their own story. This app is actually pretty good. For the price it was worth it. Some parts of the game are predictable and the choice of wording isn't the best, but the uniqueness of each character is what makes it a good game. I really loved the art also which brings it to life! Overall, good game~ ♧
Hnnng So Adorable! NOTE TO PEOPLE CLAIMING THIS IS A RIP-OFF/COPY OF HAKUOUKI:It is NOT both games have characters based on the Shinsengumi who were REAL people and a major part of Japanese history, that's why the names are the same, as well as some of their personality traits because they're based off the actual people. I got Soji's and Hajime's routes, and oh my god Hajime is just so adorable! I absolutely loved both routes, but I think Hajime was definitely my favourite, although Soji's route definitely had better CGs.
Worth it I played two routes, i bought Soji and Sanosuke and both stories are great! the arts are remarkable, and as usu. The way they blink and move adds up the ambiance in otome gaming. but.. there's this thing. I suggest you guys change the BGMusic for the 'romantic scenes' the sound is quite high pitched and too energetic, it kills the mood for me.. whenever that particular bgm comes up, instead of a soft flirty music, it sounds to me like its a bgm u can listen to during winter while u go skate or play in snow.
Pay and Play I was not expecting to pay, but because it was cheaper that buying a $20 DS game I figured I'd give it a try. Hajime and Shinpachi are my favorite-the other stories didn't quite make sense to me. Sure the main character can be a bit of a push over sometimes, but the choices you're given allow her to have some backbone.
Meh. The art work and everything is outstanding and remarkable, but it's not what I wanted. The character designs are unique, but not the original ones I wanted to play. Plus, this is a whole new story, I WANT the original characters and story line, I just can't stand playing this. Nothing against the game, of course. Just... need to work on their personalities more, just a tinsy bit please. ^-^'
Dont compare and complain I love D3 Publisher games. The main stories are of reasonable price in accordance to the "team effort". And this may be based on the real Shinsegumi but NOT Hakuoki (a popular take of the Shinsegumi in psp) Shinsegumi is one of the most historical figures during the post edo period and I can personally name a lot of anime and otome game spin offs about them. True that the datable characters are the same but if you read the real history of these men, you'll see that only "them" has a story to tell.
A smashing hit Japanese Romance Game is now available in English on Smartphones!
