Sakura Wars Thrives With Endearing Characters and Gorgeous Music
If you go into games with a desire to connect with new and interesting characters, Sakura Wars is a very enjoyable experience. It provides a unique experience in that its a strange mix of a JRPG, dating sim, and epic anime that somehow works. That said, the combat is severely lacking and the story has its moments of contradiction. Despite that, though, the game endears itself with the player by delivering memorable characters you can't help but connect with. Here's hoping this leads to more Sakura Wars games coming out West!
