    Compelling to read and very well-translated, Hakuoki invites players to experience all six of its character storylines.

    Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom brings the world of Japanese girl's romance games to America-but is a game that both sexes could find a lot of enjoyment in.

    Less game, more interactive narrative: this curious and very distinct release weaves a lengthy tale of samurais and love to good effect.

    Despite lackluster music, Hakuoki is an enjoyable visual novel that could actually make gamers rethink their perception of Idea Factory.

Providing a deep, interesting historical backdrop (Japan before the Meiji age) and some memorable characters, the game enthralled me since the first hour, and I had to complete it two times (different paths are in there) because of how awesome the writing and story were. It's definitely the best visual novel localized in a long time, and something not a single lover of Japanese games should miss. Full Review »

    Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom is very close to my heart, and needless to say, I am very biased in its favor. The historical elementHakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom is very close to my heart, and needless to say, I am very biased in its favor. The historical element is thorough and well-rounded and I like the setup: how you don't just pick a guy from a list, you have to figure it all out in one route.

    One of my all-time favorite otome games - it's a classic. I could (and have!) easily play any route without getting bored or feeling like the romance or the story is getting overused.
