I have not reviewed any h games for a while. And here it is, Viper CTR, one of the very last Viper games released in 1998. Being a Viper game, you already know what to expect: lots of animations and no gameplay.
Viper CTR has a pretty normal storyline. Unlike crazy stories like alien invasions in M1, this is a simple love story between ASUKA and you. There are difficulties, of course. For example a girl suddenly came to your house and starting doing things (!) Because this game is so short (est. playtime: 1 hour), I don't want to give away too much stuff. Just play and see ^^
Of course, the major attraction of the Viper series has never been the story, the animation is the thing. Because of the normal story, there is no cool explosion nor fighting scenes in M1. Instead, the animation details are in character movement and facial expressions. It really feels like watching an anime beacuse the character animations are really real. This is a major selling point of the series and Sogna has done a wonderful job this time.
Gameplay: 0/10 - OK I said it, 0. There is absolutely no gameplay at all. There are only 2 places where your choice will bring you to one of three different endings. Other times you just sit there and click anything that's avaiable to you.
Story: 5/10 - The story has a nice setting, but the total gametime is only 1 hour, so the character development is real limited. This is a common flaw with all Viper games...
Graphics: 8/10 - It's Viper, and it's hyper! (???) There are no flashy scenes, but as I said before, the detail on characters really made up for it. And h fans will be glad there will be no lack of eye-candies...
Music/Sound: 8/10 - The voice actors are quite good. Them in combination with the good animation really make this game shines.
Overall: 5/10 - Dispite the good animation and sound quality, the ultra-short length of the game makes it not recommended for any serious gamers. But for Viper fans or computer animation fans, this is a title you won't want to miss.
Japanese level: Medium - You can still get through the game and watch the animation without any knowledge of Japanese, but to fully understand it you need medium Japanese level.
