A.W.: Phoenix Festa attempts to combine an action RPG with a dating sim and is actually able to pull it off. It is a short game that can be completed in just a few hours, but it has some replay value since getting different partners for the Phoenix Festa or trying to date different women can offer a different experience the second time around. There is not a great deal of challenge to it but it is a cute game that can be casually enjoyed, provided one has thick enough skin to handle repeated rejection from digital young ladies.
Overall, A.W.: Phoenix Festa presents what it has well, though there is a lot left to be desired. Rather than tying into the source materials, the game may have been better off if it had its own definitive ending and did not rely on the player to know relevant background information. Despite having a shallow combat system, the gameplay remains fluid and enjoyable, despite being too easy most of the time.
A.W.: Phoenix Festa is a title that doesn't know what it wants to be; offering something for everyone, but failing to make all the bits work together in harmony. If tuned properly, this could be an enjoyable title, but as-is it's so easy and/or monotonous at times that it's only slightly better than doing nothing at all. Only slightly.
