Title: Sakura Sadist
Release Date: 25 May, 2018
So idk how to say this without sounding weird. But I love this game! So I know these games are always weirding people out whenever they hear about them. But if you get over the fact that they do indeed include Nudity and Sexual Elements, this game has great characters and character design, it has great story. It's overall an a ok for me! So that's my review of this game! :) <3. So after playing through the entire game, getting every ending, i gotta say this was a blast! I know that Winged cloud doesnt have the best reputation with some people, but i think they truly did an amazing job here!
First of all, ive always been a huge fan of Wanaca's work, ever since i was first introduced into the sakura series. Matter of fact, ive always been inspired from her work, so seeing her style with these characters were very beutiful. The writing was great through out the story, Though i felt like there were a few unnessary moments with some of Azusa's inner thoughts, but her odd internal ramblings started growing on me and i liked the character more for it in the end. Each character felt unique in there own ways, and never felt to out of place with the plot.
The music was pretty good too! Without spoiling some of the story, there were some scences where the music matched exactly what was going on, and set the tone perfectly.
The backgrounds were very good! There wasnt to many diffrent areas, but that doesnt mean it was bad, if anything, it made these areas feel more alive, my fav being the maid cafe. If your interested in playing it, id reccomend it, its an easy read with beutiful art work and stoytelling.
This next part has a few minor spoilers, so just a fair warning! I felt like the story was more impactful because i went into Mari's route first, then when i went into Mamiko's route, i felt like i just backstabbed Mari so hard, and the more i went into hers, the more i felt like i was betraying Mari. Though im glad i did eventaully go down Mamiko's route, it has a pretty interesting twist of events that made me feel wrong but at the same time led to more curiosity. If you just go down Mari's route, it might feel short and sweet, but thats because the story really takes an odd turn when you start to pursue Mamiko, and opens up more. All in all, it was an engaging experience!
(O BTW If your trying to get the "Hidden" ending, But not sure how to get it, i got you fam! Youll need to complete both Mari's route and Mamiko's, then reload a save where you were going down Mari's route, basically to the last choice you can do with her route, but instead, send the photo. The next morning when she asks if your the real Azusa, you'll have a new promt saying that you remember that you two made a wish when you were younger. Afterwards, youll need to jump a head until she confess her love to you, then you just choose that you love her AND Mamiko, then from there your set for the secret ending!)
But yeah, hopefully this review meant something to somebody! If your on the fence about it, maybe get it when it goes on sale again! But all in all, it was very nice to see Winged cloud make this awesome story!. It was a funny VN with some phases where you were hit back by your own thinking. I honestly did not like Mamiko at all, though I love any type of character, even the psychotic ones. Since the story seemed boring to me because of Mamiko I'm glad it was a short VN.. Bought it when it was on sale. A perfect way to waste 3 hours of your life with sadistic lesbians. And as always, get the patch(its not a lewd game if theres no 18+ patch). If you like anime girls then really any Sakura game can be for you. They're alright but there's way better stuff out there.
Immersion - 6.5
Music - 7.7
Art - 7.6
Content - 5.3
Story - 4.3
☆Overall - 62.8. After years of playing the sakura games "religiously" according to some of my friends, the day arrives once more where I must play the newest title and give it a review. As usual with Winged cloud, every title sees some change, but unlike most, this game left a strange taste in my mouth (not THAT kind of taste either...). While I do reccomend it, I think this title could have been one of the best and ended up being lower on my personal list of sakura games.
before the review, I must add, IF YOU ARE NOT FOND OF MILD BDSM-RELATED STUFF THIS IS NOT THE GAME FOR YOU. LOTS OF KINKY♥♥♥♥♥♥GOING DOWN IN THIS GAME AS FAR AS DIALOGUE AND ART IS CONCERNED.
Otherwise, have fun you ♥♥♥♥ing perverts. on to the reveiw!
Firstly, the writing and story. after sakura cupid, I was expecting something in a whole new direction with sakura sadist, given the title and all. apparently my expectations were a little too high, even for winged cloud. The story starts of really slowly and stumbles at the beginning. I think this is due to a change of writers from the last game back to the one who usually doesnt do the best job writing the games. A lot of things seemed all-too-familiar to sakura cupid. Pink haired dopey protagonist who also happens to be quite the pervert is put in a love triangle. the difference with this game is I really think that the writer wanted the player to read the story in a certain direction because SPOILER: The sadist isnt the MC like I thought it would be, and the sadistic girl has a MUCH MUCH longer route than the childhood friend. one route was noticably (and i mean like 1 hour longer) longer than the other route, which made me feel like I made the wrong choice. in a visual novel. thats a dating sim. where you get to pick your favorite girl and see some... ahem... quailty content.
The ONE thing that pretty much negates the story's fault is that the MC actually had to change in order for the story to progress, and faced consequences for her actions, something that believe it or not, the previous titles lacked. additionally, the game is much longer and includes more dialogue than most of the other sakura games, I sure hope you like reading! lastly, there are a handful of good anime references and good little jokes around the story.
Next up, the art. Wanaca, who is my personal favorite artist is back for another title. the characters are definetely cute looking as always and the adult content (with those like me who have the uncensored patch because they want to see some B I G T I D D Y A C T I O N) is well drawn out...? to put it that way...? get your tissues out I guess. The porn quality of these games has never been an issue, especially with Wanaca doing the art. small gripes with the art here and there is that the characters look similar to the ones in sakura cupid. if you're a dedicated sakura game player like myself (probably nobody) it might bother you. additionally, no animated backgrounds. I was really dissapointed after welcoming and praising them in sakura cupid. it added so much to the art and it was a shame to not see it. however I do think that due to the whole thing about steam asking VN devs to ♥♥♥♥ off then doing a 180 did cause Winged Cloud to have to do some last minute things to the game, which may have affected the quality of a few things .
quick little tidbit about the UI - its nice to see something way more subtle than some of their games that have almost intrusive and distracting UI. this entry had a very minimalist UI that made reading a little better than it usually is.
lastly, the music. I didnt think id even have to touch on such a thing since usually the sakura games music is just something that most wouldnt think about and probably wouldnt even care about in a game thats purpose made to be wanked to, but holy hell the music in the beginning of the game is almost unbearable. like wow. I usually give the benefit of the doubt to WC to just making music thats meant to fill the empty audio void and to not distract you too much but holy ♥♥♥♥ some of the music in this was bad. That said however, it did improve as the game went on with different scenes and tones being especially good, but UGH i dont even want to think about the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ music at the beginning.
This game is an endurance fight for sure. hold out, and youll get some quality BDSM and other lewd action/dialogue (for those with the uncensored version, which I HIGHLY reccomend since it adds dialogue and some pretty...ahem... GOOD art). but that doesnt discount the fact that the beginning is very clunky. be warned. Again, I still reccomend this game for the porn of course, but the story gets better as you go along.
overall, if you are buying this for the porn and want to support the winged cloud team, do it. but if you are looking for a SUPER SERIOUS DRAMA FILLED ROMANCE VISUAL NOVEL avoid all sakura games. these VNs are meant to be enjoyed and give a comedic/not-too-serious feel like a rom/com ecchi anime, not taken as seriously as a Triple-A title.. I'm new to the sakura series but liking the story so far. Still playing, but checkout my first 25 mins of me playing on my channel :D https://youtu.be/poUlaLxgiow
