Adventure and Romance in the Twilight of the Shogunate Era

Japan's Edo Period was drawing to a close. The Tokugawa shogunate, which had held power in the country for more than 200 years, found itself challenged by the imperial court, and by several feudal domains who had chaffed under shogunal rule. In this midst of this political unrest, an organization rose to prominence: The Shinsengumi. Originally formed to protect the street of Kyoto from master less samurai, they came to represent the last, tragic bastion of the honor-bound samurai culture that had defined much of Japan's history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah for Original Japanese Voice Acting! February 15, 2012
By Xuan
Style Name:Limited Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The only thing I was worryied about with this English version of Hakuoki is that the company might not keep the original Japanese voice acting. I got the game on Feb 14 (from my local game stop, the amazon pre-ordered copy is still on the road) and yeah the voice acting is still in the original Japanese! Yes!

Hakuoki is one of the top names in Otome games, and apart from great character design and story lines, this game features some of the best voice actors in Japan, which to me is a must have for a visual novel style game.

I really hope this game can sell well in the US, so other games of this series can be introduced as well. And maybe some day Koei's neoromance games will also see its way in the US market.

==============================================
One update after playing through the English version: I realized the English version does not include the extra story sections (hakuoki ibun-senyu emaki). In the Japanese psp version, you get access to extra text stories (with voice acting) for all characters once you finish one character's route. Reading the story will unlock an extra CG of that character. In the English version, you still get the CG after beating the game, but there's no story, which is a shame. Because of this, I would like to take half a star off this English version if I can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Visual Novel! February 15, 2012
Style Name:Limited Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Playing Hakuoki, I can see why this game has been such a huge success in Japan. I know a lot of reviews make it sound like this is a dating sim, but it is much more than that. Hakuoki takes place in the middle of a war that actually happened in real life. Most of the characters and events are (loosely) based off of real life, so there is a historical aspect to the game. But the fantasy and romance prevent it from getting bogged down with history.

The art is beautiful and the Japanese vocal cast is amazing. Idea Factory spared no expense with their voice actors, getting some of the top in the field.

As long as you feel comfortable playing a game from a female's prospective, I think that this game actually caters well to both genders. The only reason I could see someone not liking it is if they purchased it not knowing what a visual novel is. As the name implies, it is completely text-based with no actual game-play aside from choosing paths like in a choose-your-own-adventure novel. If you like to read books, I think this game might be just up your ally!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely addictive February 16, 2012
Style Name:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game off the PSN (so I could play it on my Vita when I get it) and I have been very satisfied with my purchase. Gaming has always been about the story and the characters to me and this game, while lacking in actual gameplay, has that. As you make your choices, you learn more and more about each of the characters, fleshing out the story and learning more about what the time period was like. The story takes quite a few liberties, combining supernatural elements with historical events. The artwork and the music is so beautiful, I'm actually considering buying the limited edition of the game off of Amazon just for the art book and the soundtrack. The game has a very handy rewind/fast forward option so you can replay certain events or fast forward through the text you already read if you choose to go back and choose a different option.

Disclaimer: This is a very text heavy game. If you don't like reading, don't buy it. If you think you would be bored making choices and then reading the outcome (similar to a choose your own story book), this game is not for you.

Edit (2/25): You can't play the game on the Vita yet but according to Aksys games, they are working on getting it approved by Sony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicted and Need Rehab August 19, 2012
By Niki R.
Style Name:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Have you ever read an exceptionally good book or seen an amazing movie that you constantly think about even after you've finished it? You think about the characters, the plot, you get a butterfly feeling in the pit of your stomach as you read/watch because you're just so into it? That for me is Hakuoki.

As you can see by the product description, Hakuoki is an adventure/romance game that takes place during the end of Japan's Edo period. Much of it's events and even characters are based off of actual pieces of history, with more fantastical elements thrown in to spice it up. The route the story takes relies on your choices as the main character, a girl named Chizuru who originally comes to Kyoto to find her missing father but instead finds so much more than she bargained for. The game plays out much like those old create your own adventure novels, where the wrong choices can lead you to a "game over" aka "you're dead." However, choose the right paths and you're led to multiple different endings, many of the romantic variety with one of the choice main male characters. This alone gives Hakuoki large re-playability because even after completing it, you're far from finished. You'll need to work you're way through each route to fill in all of the holes.

The characters were very distinct and engaging, and I found I was easily able to grow attached to (or distrust, even despise) them as if they were real people standing in front of me. Of course, each character having a voice actor and being able to "talk to you" helped too. And learning about each of their specific paths is perhaps even more compelling then the overall underlying plot.

But the sweet icing on the cake would have to be the suburb voice acting and beautiful artwork.
