    Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash is arguably the best game in the series so far. With it's fast paced, movement focused gameplay and the wealth of content available to a player you will find something to keep you entertained. It isn’t a perfect game and of course it is not going to be for everyone but for those who are looking for a fun and addictive shooter look no further then Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash.

    Peach Beach Splash is a lovely addition to the Senran Kagura franchise. The game acts as a wonderfully fun third-person shooter, with immense levels of customization available right out of the box. Unfortunately, it does at times feel held back by its over-the-top, lewd, anime roots.

    It’s got the sun, it’s got the babes, it’s got the bikinis and it’s got the water guns. Plus, it’s got innuendo by the bucketload.

    For all its playful polish, this is a Senran Kagura game at heart. The story battles take time to ramp up. The dialogue between said story battles can get a little tedious. The controls are pretty good, though at times I felt like they were rough around the edges. The fan service vibes are at full power with Peach Beach Splash.

    Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash is nice and fun, with a sexual overtone that provides identity to the game but also gets in the way of the gameplay mechanics. It is clear that the game is aiming for a very specific audience but it could have achieved much more with a bit of moderation.

    I enjoyed playing Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash but I wouldn’t recommend it over any of the more traditional entries in the series. The game does well as a first attempt at a new genre but it takes away too much of what makes each of the characters unique in anyway aside from voiced lines. The forced grinding can also be a drag for a lot of people, especially if you’re hoping to stand a chance online. Despite this, its quick paced gameplay is fun in short bursts and if you’re familiar with the characters, Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash is essentially an excuse to literally see more of them.

    I pretty much dreaded returning to this game for review after the first go, but I still persisted. The theme of wet t-shirts, water guns, and silly antics is something that I could overlook regardless of how much it just made me uncomfortable at times, but the core gameplay mechanics here just didn’t do it for me. Who could I recommend this game to then? Players that are fans of the storyline and banter between the girls, and the overall visual design of the game might be pleased, but anyone looking for anything past the busting babes or wet shirts are bound to be disappointed.

I was waiting more advanced Senran Kagura fps, but now I can say It wasn't that. Gameplay is ok I guess, but there is two big disappointing things. Totally poor AI and region locked online multiplayer. Story is what it is, but it's not the biggest concern for me.

    If one day you are asking about my condition after playing this game, my room was full of blood (nose bleed) and I will explain later why IIf one day you are asking about my condition after playing this game, my room was full of blood (nose bleed) and I will explain later why I have stayed in this state. This PBS is developed by Tamsoft and published by Marvelous, uses the characters of the series Senran Kagura and is a third-person shooter with weapons of water.

    Imagine this PBS as a Gears of War, but instead of hard people, armed to the teeth and with firearms, we have sweet girls and some of them pervert, who do not have many problems in showing their skin, with jetpacks of water that we can raise and accelerate and, as I said, with water guns. The overall goal of the game, in most of the missions of story mode, missions of the Paradise Episodes, V-Road Challenge and team battle mode online, is to shoot down the 5 (or less) members of our opposing team with Assault Rifle, Grenade Launcher, Sniper Rifle, Rocket Launcher, Pistol, Dual Pistols, Shotgun, Shower Gun, Gatling Gun, Spray Gun, Melee, Pets or skill cards.

    When our opponent reaches zero health, he falls exhausted and devastated, and then there is an opportunity to make a Kunekune Finish aka Squirmy Finish, one of the most fun and hilarious parts of the game and one of the reasons why i bleed. Let's say it's a way of humiliating our opponent through the water-laden rubber ducklings to leave the victim with tears. We can direct and shoot to three victim sites, head, bra or underwear. For example, if we shoot a lot in on underpants, well... the underpants will come out. The same thing happens with regard to the bra and before you ask, no, you can't see the intimate parts of the girls, otherwise the Tamsoft would be marked with iron and fire.

    In Story Mode we have 4 Arcs: Gessen Arc, Hanzo Arc, Hebijo Arc and Homura's Crimson Squad Arc. Negative point for the non-anime cutscenes, sometimes I get the feeling that the characters' lip motions are not well synchronized with the character's speech. In addition we will have missions to shoot down the other opposing team, we have missions to eliminate all the enemies, to put out fires and to defeat bosses. Paraside Episodes are just fillers and there's nothing different (cutting out the fire missions and the bosses) from story mode missions, and as you can see, there are only a few missions in Story Mode and Paradise Episodes. Another detail, in both Story Mode and Paradise Episodes, the user always starts with three hearts, if both are empty, is Game Over. After we have completed some mission in Story Mode and Paradise Episodes, the player is rewarded with X Zen, X-Star Card Pack and sometimes a Memorial Medal, depending on difficulty (Easy, Medium or Hard) and the performance we made on (B, A and S rank) the mission.

    V-Road Challenge has 4 modes: School Cup, Honey Cup, Queen Cup and Venus Cup. Both are about elimination; the team that made the most KO's goes to the next stage and they are divided in 5 phases: 1st Round, 2nd Round, 3rd Round, Semifinal and Final. If for example we win in the School Cup final, the Honey Cup is unlocked and so on. If we lose in one of the qualifiers, we will return to the 1st Round.

    We have 33 playable characters and 8 arenas. I leave here a negative point regarding the arenas. Both in Story Mode, Paradise Episodes and V-Road Challenge suffer from the "reuse of the same arenas" syndrome (there aren't too many arenas, but it also hasn't quite a few) and that's a bit annoying.

    The game gives us the possibility of having pet cards and skill cards that serve to increase the arsenal of our characters. During the deck edit we have 3 slots for the pet cards and while the skill cards have 6 slots. But I will give you a few examples of the skills of certain pet cards and skill cards, Kagura (Pet Card) protects the user from attacks for 20 seconds, we have certain cards from Leo (skill cards) that gives us the possibility of firing a laser in front of the user. In relation to skill cards, there are five types of cards, from one star cards to five star cards. The more stars a card has, the more powerful it is. A good point for the game is the optimum amount of skill cards with different abilities. If we receive repeated cards, we can always use them to level up, our characters, weapons, pet cards or skill cards.

    Peach Beach Splash has a shop where we can buy packs of cards, illustrations, anime cutscenes, hairstyles, clothes and among other cosmetic things that we can use in the Dressing Room. Speaking in this mode, in addition to being able to put clothes, bracelets, hats and other accessories, we can also change the color and shape of our characters' hairstyle, as well as change the Panties and... do perverted and stupid things.

    Soundtrack is just average. Performance problems? No complaints and overall, despite their flaws, Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash came as a surprise to me; is original (someone is watching some TPS game with water guns like PBS??) and a lot of fun to play.

    Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash
    Ridiculous and repetitive
    Peach Beach Splash is a 3rd person competitive shooter with both online and single player modes...
    There’s an 8 hours story here where you play through 10 missions of each of the 4 teams gathered to compete in a water gun tournament for the promise of anything they want…
    but of course there’s a hidden agenda for you to uncover…
    this campaign is pretty repetitive only being fun for about 2 hours and feels the same throughout, though each group has a unique story and boss battle..
    only with Japanese voice actors, so you’ll be reading subtitles for English…
    the game plays like a 3rd person shooter, you have a group of 5 girls and you can assign to them a variety of guns like assault rifles, pistols, rocket launchers ,gatline guns, and your goal is to basically kill everything in the map for a few minutes to progress the story…
    the combat is decently deep, as each weapon feels unique and will have you watching your amount of water to pump some back in for use, and each gun uses a different amount, has a different reload speed rate of fire, and you can equip any weapon to any girl to get a feel for them as you play..
    you can also equip cards and create decks for passive and active abilities in match like having a pet to attack your opponents or heal your character
    you get a pack of cards at the end of every mission and you can use duplicates to power up your favorite cards, weapons, or even character, packs can also be purchased with micro transactions and in game currency earned from playing various game modes…
    outside of the pretty boring boob joke filled campaign there’s a dressing room and shower where you can alter the appearance of the games 20 characters and grope them, because of course
    why wouldn’t there by the option to grope
    the game doesn’t really become interesting until it’s an actual competitive match getting away from the random enemy shooting
    There are 3 different online modes,
    ranked, free and survival..
    Survival is basically seeing how long you can last taking down the lame enemies from the story mode and in ranked and free play you’ll be playing any of the 4 different competitive modes, team battle, queen of the hills, squirmy showdown, and capture the bra in 9 different arenas with the day and night versions of each…
    competitive is where you’ll be putting your cards and jet packing skills to use..
    there’s a mechanic here where your teammates can get you 100% soaking wet to temporality give you unlimited ammo, all while trying to take down the opposing team and humiliating them…
    because that’s how you eliminate enemies in this game…
    Once you lose your health your teammates can revive you, but if your opponent gets to you first they have to try and shoot your top or bottom off to eliminate you
    and there’s a competitive mode where humiliation eliminations are all that count
    However match making is pretty up and down..
    I was only able to find 3v3 ranked matches or launch day…
    some taking up to 15 minutes to find opponents for... so needless to say 5v5 wasn’t happening...
    Though you are rewarded card packs and cash with wins like in story mode... so story grinding isn’t required to have good gear
    Peach Beach Splash is an okay game that will keep you entertained for a weekend,..
    That is if you can find people to play with
    I give Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash
    a 6/10
