If you are into lewd visual novels then I am sure that Sanguine Rose has come across your radar before. It is a game I have been meaning to sink my teeth into for a while. Thankfully, I had a bit of free time over the weekend so I thought what better time than now to enter this fantasy world and see what all the fuss is about!
The Most Dangerous Woman Alive
The story of the game is probably the strongest aspect of it. As this is a visual novel game that is a pretty good thing! There is a team of four mercenaries that have gone out to capture the high general Carmen Valentine. You end up staying at this snowy place and you soon find out that Carmen is willing to do anything to survive and escape.
The four people in this band of mercenaries, along with Carmen are all fully realized characters. Roman is the leader of the group, but he is joined by Markus who is the rogue and who deals in secret information, Glasha who is great in a fistfight and you also have Crow who is half human and half-orc and one of the most gorgeous fantasy characters I have come across in a lewd game. The story in Sanguine Rose has many different branching paths and endings so there is a lot of reason to play through it more than once.
Like Pages From A Book
The presentation of the game is near perfect in my eyes. The main characters all look incredible and the various locations have a lot of detail to them too. I much prefer this kind of art style in my lewd games over the 3D stuff any day! The facial expressions are done very well and this along with the detailed writing makes you feel much more connected to the characters.
As far as the lewd aspects of the game go, I love it. This is a game that tones down the over the top H stuff that many other lewd visual novel games go for. Instead, we have sex scenes that look great and are very hot, but not over the top and too much if you know what I am saying. Sanguine Rose also has one of the best gallery viewers of any visual novel game I have played as it lets you see pretty much everything.
So Much To Say And Do
One of the strongest aspects of the game is that the decisions you make feel like they shape the story in a meaningful manner. If you treat certain members of the team well, you will have a better relationship with them. How you deal with Carmen can greatly affect the story going forward. It is really cool stuff and I am sure that I will play through the game again to see different outcomes and dialogue paths.
The game is a bit on the short side, but to be fair, this is a game that is clearly made to be played more than once.
I had a good time with Sanguine Rose. I thought that the story and the characters were very interesting and I enjoyed the way that your decisions felt like they mattered. I found something I liked in all five of the main characters and I am certain that I will play through this again. I can see why if you are a one and done kind of player of visual novel games that you may feel the story is too short.
