Perfect

Otome are story based video games

Otome (????? otome gemu?, lit. "girl game") are story based video games that are targeted towards a female market. Generally one of the goals, besides the main plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male, or occasionally female characters. This genre is most established in Japan, and is mostly made up of visual novels and simulation games.
My wife recently "gameflyed" this game and loved it immensely, this is not a normal style video game, but if you love Anime and/or historical Japanese samurai stories, this is an awesome use of Gamefly...

FIRST OF ALL, THIS IS NOT A GAME. IT IS A JAPANESE GRAPHIC NOVEL ON DISK WITH A FEW CHOICES TO DIRECT STORY ARC. THIS STORY REQUIRES ALMOST ALL READING. THAT BEING SAID, I FOUND AS I PROGRESSED THROUGH THE STORY I ENJOYED IT MORE AND MORE. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE THE ABILITY TO SIT AND READ A GOOD STORY ON THE PS3, THIS IS AN INTERESTING EXPERIENCE THAT I WOULD ENCOURAGE.

Really Bad

This is a game?

I thought at some point I would be able to "play". This is a choose your own adventure book in visual form.

The story was interesting at first, but it began to get very long winded and the "choose" part was few and far between.

If you like to read A LOT, then you might enjoy this "game". I'm going to give it a 2, and that's being nice.
