> It's been almost four years since my first preview for Yu-No at Sega
Force. At that time, Yu-No was one of the most sought after titles
in the Saturn import scene. It's time to make a few more observations
while adding it to Shin Force.
> First off, forget about understanding a whole lot of what's going on
in this game, unless you speak Japanese. The only way I was able
to get as far as I did was simple trial and error. The gameplay consists
of a series of menus to select from and still screens to help tell the
story. Every now and then you're treated to a series of still pictures
to show the tantalizing progress of your character. I'll tell you
one thing for sure, the artists employed in this game are very talented.
> I haven't seen a ton of dating sims, but Yu-No is definitely the best
in my circle of knowledge. At this point I'm not up on the value
of this game. The last time I checked (a year ago), however, it was
selling on ebay for around $50-75. I would imagine it's value has
held steady. Collectors might want this game...
> This is the kind of game we need in the USA so that we can have a little
variety! Because of the nature of this genre, it'll probably never
be seen in English (all too bad). The game is absolutely loaded with
CG graphic eye candy (in every sense). The object is pretty simple
too, instead of conquering vast foreign lands, you must conquer the fairer
sex. Maybe, by some miracle, this game will be localized in England,
where the people are more mature about these subjects. At any rate,
the game looks like a complete blast.
> If not on Saturn, I hope maybe the Dural (aka Dreamcast) will have this
genre covered in the USA. I don't care what Congress thinks!!
I want this genre to be represented here. All Sega has to do is put
a MA-18 (mature audiences - 18 and older) rating on it to warn parents
that are too lazy to read about, and/or look at pictures of the games they
buy for their kids.
> Take a gander at the beautiful pictures below to get a taste of what
people play in the land of the rising sun. In some cases, I'd say
the Japanese get all the good stuff! The pictures below only represent
a small percent of the action that awaits hungry game players...
> The cover says, "Yu-No -- A girl who chants love at the bound of this
world"... This looks like a very interesting 3-disc adventure extravaganza...
Which company will be the first to bring this type of game to the USA?
And on what system??
