READ: I hate storybook type bishoujo games. They're generally
brainless, boring, and repetitive. Worse, they have no actual
gameplay. I amuse myself with clickathon bgames because consoles
don't provide what self-proclaimed pervs (I am one!) need.
In addition, hentai RPGs like Knights
of Xentar don't come by that often. So you can see that
I habitually sacrifice my sanity just to satisfy a twisted
need to update this site.
Now that we've established my extreme dislike for these types
of games, you can, at this instant, imagine my shock when
I found myself liking Critical Point. Enough to give it a
10. The plot is so involving; I couldn't wait for the next
scenario to unfold. There are 24 diverse paths, with endings
that can either be stupidly tragic or hilariously rewarding.
It's like playing a game of Clue (Cluedo in Asian releases).
You identify who did what, where and with what weapon. And
every path you take leads you to a different culprit. The
fun resides in the guessing
and of course, the opportunity
to jump into bed with the most voluptuous females available.
The last sci-fi bgame I played, Time
Stripper Mako, wasn't as well thought-out as this one.
I shouldn't be taken aback, since the story was written by
Kenichi Matsuzaki. He was known for his thorough involvement
on popular anime such as Macross/Robotech,
the original Gundam,
Orgus and Bubblegum Crisis. Critical Point really puts you in outer space,
where the possibilities are limitless. The dialogues are astonishingly
fast-paced for one that has intricate storylines. You don't
have to make your clicking fingers bleed trying to figure
out what happens next. What's more, the fast-forward button
helps you run through scenes at lightning speed. The English
isn't all that bad either, except for the titles of the endings.
The sounds are okay but it's the Japanese voice actresses
that make the experience all the more erotic.
The characters are solid. They're not simple-minded bimbos
that you can ravish one moment and forget the next. You don't
just empathize with them in order to get into their pants.
Your sensitivity affects the path you will traverse with them.
Take heed: there's enough history and secrets to uncover that
will keep you connected to these women. And they are pretty!
Man, are they pretty! You get to choose: Corporal Reiko Shinozuka,
your computer genius "assistant"; Lieutenant-Colonel
Carla Benedict, certified MILF (Mama is Looking Fine); Lieutenant
Elise Triad, a sophisticated human-like android; Captain Lai
Wong, a power-hungry S&M queen, Lieutenant Maretta Dias,
Lai Wong's precious toy; Monica Brown, a sneaky bipolar reporter;
and 2nd Lieutenant Julietta Thorndike, one of the sexiest
commandos in charge of the local investigation. Choose well
because the hentai sequences vary from mildwhich includes
peeing, oral sex, conventional humpingto severe. I mean,
expect whipping, ass-fucking, and the participation of inanimate
The graphics boast of exquisite 2D and 3D CG, plus real-life
pictures on occasion. Watch out for the gore, though! Other
than that, I have never seen any other storybook bgame that
looks and feels this good.
