    While I don’t think Criminal Girls 2 goes anywhere near far enough to be the extreme Sadean experience that it clearly wants to be, at least we have a game that achieves something down that path. Art needs extreme experiences, and genuinely extreme experiences (aside from those laden with gore) are rare indeed in this industry. Kudos to NISA for not only taking a chance on the first Criminal Girls, but backing up its faith that people do appreciate this kind of experience by localising the second too.

    Many will shy away due to the concept alone but if you’re not put off by the ‘motivation’ scenes then Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors is a great JRPG. A nice change of pace from your usual ‘save the world’ adventure, a variation on the usual turn based battle system and a very well presented game all round.

    A very deep and sensual JRPG and a far superior game than its predecessor.

    Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors is a niche release for sure, but it's also a solid RPG experience which is ideally suited to the Vita. If you've got Sony's handheld device and an open mind regarding how female fighters should be motivated, then this is a slice of good quality JPRG that can provide many hours of battling pleasure. Just take our advice and try not to play it in public.

    It's difficult for me to recommend Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors for two reasons. One: as far as RPGs go, there are far more robust RPGs available that offer more satisfying questing experiences. Two: with regard to "sexytime" games, there are plenty of dedicated eroge (translated in English to boot) out there to more deeply fulfill any extreme fetish desires you may have. That being said, this sleazy game certainly had a visceral effect on me and actually had me contemplating the contradictory aspects of myself. However, this experience taught me that my inner monster decidedly prefers the taste of Cannibal Corpse to Criminal Girls.

    This sequel is no longer surprising, but if you enjoyed the first, you'll like this one. Still, it's a little bit milder and if you focus on its core gameplay, quite dull.

    A bog-standard dungeon crawler with added boobies, Party Favors offers forgettable titillation but almost no actual substance.

    We´ve got quite the interesting rpg right here.
    The gameplay is rather unique and breaks the monotony of many similar games while leveling up, I found it rather addicting.
    As for the mini games to unlock and improve abilities, they may not be for everyone but it´s one of the series main characteristics. (Plus it no longer has the annoying fog that the first one suffered of)
    The artwork is beautiful, `nuff said.

    TL;DR: Addictive gameplay, well made pervy minigames. Not to be played in public.

If you arent an RPG, Ecchi, Anime, fan. this game may not be for you. This game was heavily censored down, but from a mechanical standpoint it is much more enjoyable than the original. This one has the same premise but a better story, better soundtrack, and better characters. The dungeon crawling has the same aspects but combat feels much more intuitive, and the motivation scenes really give this game its rating. a high pick for those looking to spice things up in the dungeon Expand

    Characters are pretty solid, but some of the fun when motivating (as it's not about punishment) the girls has lost some of it's bite.Characters are pretty solid, but some of the fun when motivating (as it's not about punishment) the girls has lost some of it's bite. Especially compared to the Japanese version. The system in which you can change how the girls address you and all voices in general is just gone. Other then that, the story is still okay, but it certainly feels like something is missing. Gameplay is the same as the first game minus some slight improvements. The soundtrack is more or less similarly forgettable. Development and the story is alright, but when weighed against everything else, I couldn't see myself recommending this to anybody who wants a complete game. Sorry NISA. Expand
