G-senjou no Maou
G-senjou no Maou or if you prefer The Devil on G-String is one of the most interesting visual novel games I have ever played. Unlike many other visual novel style games. G-senjou no Maou/ The Devil on G-String is not just all about very graphic sex. However, this is still most certainly an adult kind of game and a game that is very intelligent in its story.
Rise Of A Boss!
The most compelling aspect of G-senjou no Maou/ The Devil on G-String is the story. The game has you playing the role of Azai Kyousuke who is the adopted son of a Yakuza mob boss! He is a high school student who is trying to balance his high school life with his underground gangster activities. Azai is a very, very compelling protagonist in that he is not good or bad or even what you would refer to as an anti-hero. He is a character with some real depth and your take on him will probably be different to mine.
The main story of the game is him trying to pay back a debt to his father. I really, really wish I could tell you more. However, this is a story that is so strong that you owe it to yourself to experience it without any of the major plot twists being spoiled. Part of what I really liked about the story here is the way it unfolded. It moved at the perfect pace; pacing is something many visual novels struggle with.
It Is All About The Characters
While I think that Azai is a fantastic protagonist. G-senjou no Maou/ The Devil on G-String has some other very memorable characters too. Your buddy, Aizawa is a bit of a dirtbag, but he is very well written. As you would expect, girls are aplenty here, but they are more than just eye candy and characters for the males to have their way with. The main female character, Usami is awesome! She is smart, geeky, socially awkward and also very deep. I found her one of the most intriguing characters I had come across in a visual novel game for quite some time.
Know What You Are Getting
As is the case with all other visual novel style games. You probably know what to expect from the actual gameplay that is on offer here. You mainly read the story, but you do have a few decisions that can move the story in a particular direction. The visual style is truly remarkable and the game has a very high-quality look to it. Which along with the excellent voice acting do move the story along very well.
I think that G-senjou no Maou/ The Devil on G-String is a great game and one that did grab me. It is the kind of game that I played through and then bugged some of my friends to do so. I did this so I had someone to discuss it with as the story was so impactful for me. I cannot recommend this one highly enough if you like visual novels!
