Over the Christmas break people have been shopping, eating and playing games. What did I do a bit all in one. I played a cooking rhythm game where I unlocked lingerie. I played the latest instalment of Senran Kagura Bon Appétit to hit the UK.
To be honest all I knew was it was a cooking game and thought it to be like cooking mama. Indeed I was wrong it was a fast paced music rhythm game to control the cooking (and clothes) of the high school ninjas.
Bon Appetit! rivals games of the same genre like Project Diva and DJ Max, but with it's own niche with a unique blend of fan service, music, customisation and rhythm. If you looking for a in depth otome with strong story this is not the game for you. In fact some of the plots in story mode are ridiculous. A fella by name of Hanzo holds a cooking contest to eat food and look at boobs, in return the winner gains a scroll to give the winner their ultimate wish. This is all fraud but each gal is happy. Yagyu gains a stronger 'friendship' bond with Hibari and there is a lot of 'sister' fantas there. Where as Asuka is determined to prove that big and thick sushi maki's are the way forward and this of course leads to obsene conversations between the competitors. Katsuruga has the most crude wish to be the harem Queen and collects all the losers for her own personal grope fest.
Even though the story is weak the game is in no means easy, rhythm part of the game is very difficult. Best to start off in easy to unlock items then move on to hard. And very hard especially when you have distracting zoom in's of ahem boobs jiggling around. I'm not a pervert but it was so annoying, so much jiggling and their distraught faces. Can't be comfortable to cook in the nude. each round you are to beat the opponent and whoever loses get's a layer of their outfit destroyed as with the previous games. If you lose all three layers you are censored by chibi's on your nipples and flash of light on your vajayjay area.
If you complete the heart meter you unlock a photo of the opponent on a plate naked covered in dessert topping. I also figured out you can move the camera angels to get a good clse up or out...
Most of the characters are locked and are unlockable DLC which I think is a plus for hardcore fans of the series to know the characters. After beating story mode you unlock the character's ending photo, voice set and other bit's for your personal shrine.
This game is great to play on a journey on the train, after a solid three hours of playing this continuously I got bored. Also extremely uncomfortable to play in front of my mother. This game is far more explicit than Burst. Perfect for Otakus and rhythm game fans.
