Friends with Benefits. It’s a term that usually sounds a lot better than it is in practice. The complex nature of these no-strings relationships usually prove tough for us emotional humans and lead to heartache, frustration and a whole lot of hidden strings. So that’s why visual novels have adopted this theme and created stories that show the ideal scenario without all the awkward pitfalls. That’s exactly what Friendship With Benefits does, giving those fuck buddy fantasists exactly what they want.
This game plays like a lot of other lewd visual novels and dating sims out there such as HuniePop, Monster Prom, The Sims, Nekopara Vol 1, College Kings, OPPAI Academy, Her New Memory and Riddle Joker. This game is a comprehensive waifu game which allows you to live out your dating dreams but is it a true dream come true? We find out in our review of Friendship With Benefits.
Benefits And Disadvantages
Let’s begin with the good side of this game. The amount of content on offer is truly fantastic. You will have access to 30 different romantic interests to chase. Each with their own unique style and personality. You will have a full open world map to explore with a fully functional day and night cycle a well-designed resource management system and a wealth of sexual encounters with over 40 unique sex scenes. So you’ll seldom find yourself without something to do. Then as for the art style, we can certainly see the appeal. The game mixes furry and anime girl options in a hand drawn meets realism kind of style. It’s one that certainly will appeal to the Bronies out there but we can see where the more traditional visual novel and dating sim players will find this a little childish and over the top. However, you can’t argue that what they have done is very well carried out.
Then on to the story for this game, or the sheer lack of it. The game places you in a fantasy world that is bright and colourful but there is no lore, exposition or back story offered. Plus, the writing is just so lack lustre throughout, making the characters feel lifeless and uninspired. While the more horned up players out there will be willing to look past this. Those that need to engage with the content to enjoy this type of thing simply wont get what you need here.
If you are looking for something that will hold your attention, get your rocks off and offer decent visuals. Then we will say that you can do a lot worse than Friendship With Benefits.
However, if you are looking for a superb setting, a gripping narrative, deep, multi faceted characters and a deeper emotional connection, you won’t be getting it here. Overall, it’s a decent experience but not one that compares to the greats in the field.
