Those willing to set aside their preconceptions of visual novels might just find that Hakuoki is a thrilling, engaging, delightful experience. Gamers looking to try something new may just find this gem will become their favourite book on the 3DS, but those looking for an adventure wherein they can make meaningful choices may find themselves disappointed in Hakuoki’s rigid structure.

Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi is an excellent example of how to pen a visual novel without a horrific female lead, and an intriguing tale to boot. This is a gripping read, with the mystery surrounding Chizuru’s father taking center stage rather than the romance plots. If you didn’t catch the PSP version, snag this one on 3DS, if nothing else but to support the genre so that more visual novels can make their way overseas.

Understanding Japanese, I often find it difficult to watch Japanese dramas with English subtitles that don't quite fit the meaning of the original. There's none of that here. The translators and proofreaders have done an excellent job conveying both meaning and emotion through text. The music is cute, and the art is simple and beautiful. This game is so worth its eShop price.
