School, Love And Friends
You have probably already guessed that School, Love And Friends is a visual novel type game. There are so many of these and so many of them share assets that I feel many of these games are all starting to blend into each other and it is getting kind of hard to tell them apart. Anyway, I managed to spend a fair bit of time with this one and these are my thoughts on it.
Hey At Least We Are Not Related
I recently found out that this game started life out as School, Love And Cousins, and was a game themed around incest! Thankfully they got rid of that as while I am not one to judge it just does nothing for me. I also think the name, School, Love And Friends sounds better. The basics of the story are that you have been sent to this new town to live with your aunt where you are going to be attending school and of course, you are pretty horny and want to get laid as much as you can. There are many different stories in this game and more often than not, you will be in the middle of a whole bunch during any time you are playing the game so it can be hard to keep track of everything that is going on.
Haven’t I Seen You Before?
This is one of those games that goes for the more realistic approach to its visuals. The thing is, School, Love And Friends is one of those games that has given me a major sense of Deja Vue as I played it. I say that because there are so many of these games that do not just have this same style of visuals, I am 99 percent sure they use the same assets.
As a result, this game does not have its own identity. Do not get me wrong some of the characters are very hot. There is one school teacher in a tight white top that had she been teaching while I was at school, I would have paid way more attention in class! The game has next to no animation either and while everything looks decent enough the game is kind of lacking any personality.
You Gotta Do It Right
One thing that is quite impressive is that there are a ton of characters for you to interact with in the game. You will have many different things that you will have to do to make the ladies like you and you will also have to work on various stats as you go as well. I do like how it feels like there is always something you need to do. However, the game kind of screws you around a great deal before it lets you get to any of the good stuff.
While I would class this as a visual novel game, it does also have elements of point and click style games as well. You have to get objects, give them to a certain person, do stuff on the computer make choices of dialogue, and so on. Speaking of dialogue, the translation can be hilarious at times!
Hmmm, School, Love And Friends is a very strange game to talk about. It tries to have a lot going on, but the whole game feels like it is incredibly padded out and makes you wait for ages until you can get down to the nitty-gritty if you know what I am saying. I would not say that this is a bad game or anything like that, it just did not click with me and I do not think I will be going back to it.
Final Score: 7/10 (that is a generous 7 by the way)
- Plenty of characters to talk to
- Some of the ladies are very attractive
- There is actually quite a lot to do in the game
- I liked the way you could “take classes” to improve what you can do
- Some pretty hot stuff if you can get to it
- The game is not that exciting at all
- There loads of typos in the game
