    It isn’t what I was expecting, and initially it was confounding, but the more time I spent with it, the more I came to love it for its grungy underground spirit.

    Tokyo Tattoo Girls is an extremely niche strategy RPG that doesn't build off of what is most interesting about the game's systems and instead chooses to rely on cute anime girls for appeal, which might work for some.

    Tokyo Tattoo Girls promises a lot but delivers very little. It appears to be a strategy game but it basically plays itself with only minor input from the player. Some strong artwork at least makes the short playthroughs relatively enjoyable, just don't expect it to tax you.

    Tokyo Tattoo Girls is a simple strategy game which can be fun in small doses but is sadly not interesting enough to keep you playing for long. The story is poor, the characters are strange (and not in a good way), and the gameplay is lacking. The artwork and tattoos look gorgeous, so it’s a pity they weren’t in a better game.

    In an age where people watch other people play video games, maybe it's time that video games simply play themselves. Hopefully, that statement sounds ridiculous to you because it is. Gamers need gameplay and Tokyo Tattoo Girls has virtually none.

    In the end, what we have in Tokyo Tattoo Girls is by far one of the most shallow strategy games I've ever seen, with absolutely a joke of a story, and shallow and repetitive gameplay. It's just so utterly disappointing in just about every aspect. As someone who doesn't have any tattoos (although my wife more than makes up for me), I think I'd rather go get my first one than play this game any more than I had to.

    Tokyo Tattoo Girls stretches the definition of what a “game” is, and not in a good way. The amount of content here would barely be acceptable for a free, browser-based Flash game; for a full-priced Vita release, it’s legitimately shameful.

Just pick a girl, pick a region, and let the game run its coarse. The only time you really do anything is the boss fights, which are a joke in themselves. When fighting a boss she asks you three questions and that is it, the only point to the answers is how much health you get back. So if you answer each question with the worst possible answer you still beat the boss. Not only that, but one of the playable characters is glitched (some of her commands don't work) as well as her trophy; and there are no plans to ever patch this garbage. The game can be beaten in about an hour and even though there are six girls to play as and unlockables, there is no replay value whatsoever. But the biggest offense of all is how boring this game is. I have literally fallen asleep at work during my break playing this game. The only good things I can say is the voice acting is not bad and the art is good, for the little of it that you actually see while playing the game, but that in no way makes up for everything else wrong with this game. Do not buy this game. Pick any other strategy game up on the vita, and I grantee that it will be better. Expand
