A lot of people like to be right about anime. I respect that. In reality, I am often so wrong. Whenever I watch something new and am wondering what it was and will be, I watch a few episodes, and I can tell within the first five minutes if it will be worthwhile. Often these times are not worth the time to watch. Sometimes they are! VenusBlood Frontier is one of those times. I had watched one of the episodes on Hulu, and I saw that it looked like a fairly fleshed out MMORPG. It looked like something I would want to play, so I watched the rest of the episodes, and was hooked! It was a game based on anime, but with a more historical setting, with some Knights and Samurai, and a ton of class based units.
Nothing feels more satisfying than when you finally get that crucial victory in which it seems so hard but then you realize you can actually fight again. This is something that VenusBlood Frontier Internationaldoes so well. Its not a combat heavy game, and its not an RPG, but its so satisfying to find that wave of *love* that is coming from the defeat of everything you have faced up until then. It made my night to be able to get such a feel!
VenusBlood Frontier International is very well done. I love how they put a lot of thought into the story and characters, and have several awesome characters to choose from. I am a little disappointed that I can only use my keyboard and mouse with it, but I can understand why. That problem is mostly for me while playing at home, but I would not refuse to play this game again.
VenusBlood Frontier International had me hooked from the opening scenes. It took a lot of effort to quit playing when I discovered that I could not use my controller, but I was so disappointed to realize that I could only use my keyboard and mouse. My experience only goes so far without mouse and keyboard controls, and I will only play this game on my couch. I would not hesitate to buy this on my next trip overseas, or at a steam sale. 3d9ccd7d82
