To Heart 2: XRATED

and i thought it can only go borderline fanservice…

To Heart 2: XRATED

To Heart 2: XRATED is essentially the same game as the original To Heart 2 for the PS2, except that new scenes and features were added. You could still refer to my To Heart 2 project for details on each character, since nothing much has changed on each of their stories.

What has changed? If the word XRATED still didn’t give you a tip, I don’t know what will. Yes folks… in a seemingly different (but not so) move, a bishoujo game has turned from all-age to adult! Usually, when an adult-rated bishoujo game gets popular enough, it would be converted to all-age, cleaned-up versions on a console. To Heart 2: XRATED is the extreme reversal of that system. But since another major games maker (Key) has also done that recently (non-ero game Clannad having an ero-game sidestory called Tomoyo After), I wonder if it’s going to be a trend. Reportedly, TH2X is becoming a success on its move to… er… adulthood.

THE SPECIFICS
– The entire game in 800×600 glory (higher resolution than the PS2 version… not that it matters much.)
– Added H scenes for all characters.
– Some CG additions to Karin, the Himeyuri twins, and the first Ilfa CG. (semi-H)
– New character scenario (Sasara Kusugawa), also comes with new CG and background music of course.
– Two minigames.

NEW CHARACTER

The new character that is introduced in To Heart 2: XRATED is named Sasara Kusugawa. She is the student council president, and is one schoolyear level higher than the male lead. More details to come when I finish playing her scenario. It’s kinda long by the way.

MINIGAMES
Super Sweets Scramble

This one is a vertical-scrolling shooting game. You shoot cakes, chocolates, candies, and all kinds of sweets! There is a 3 or 6 minute timelimit, and you collect powerups for shooting upgrades. It’s quite fun while it lasts, and I recommend trying out all the various characters. Each of them have unique ability powerups, and some are so powerful it’s crazy.

Doki-Doki Panic Library

This one is a puzzle game. The object of the game is to arrange books of the same color using your character to interchange each book. Once 3 or more books of the same color are near each other, it disappears tetris-style and you score points. Some special books are there too. There are many game options including a vs. mode.

This is a Summer of Bishoujo feature

Hmm, where did THAT come from?

Posted By: bluemist On: September 22, 2005 At: 4:59 pm

From a demo packed with Leaf’s Kusari game.

Forget Reona. The fans cry out for some Ilfa action. XD

Wow, I’ve just seen the new (awesome) scans of the Lion King and Nightmare Before Christmas worlds in Kingdom Hearts 2, now THIS!? GiggityGiggityGiggityGiggity!

Besides, screw Reona and Ilfa. I cry out for Lucy cross-breeding with humans and *le gasp* Tama-nee entering Atlantica! *shot*

Just a heads up on the game.

Kusugawa Sasara is a member of the Student Council (president I think) and she seems to have quite a troubled life. Her relationship with her one and only friend is going downhill and her parents are seperated (divorced?). This is where the main character comes in and fixes her messed up life.

Her story can be quite touching (if you can get passed thinking about the H scenes you perverts!) and the ending can be somewhat heartbreaking (play the game, I won’t spoil it for you).

Oh, I’d also like to add some things.

Kusugawa Sasara’s story begins as early as March 7, all the way until the end of the game, so be prepared for a rather long scenario. Also, probably because of the fact that she’s in the student council, she involves just about all of the main characters in her story at some point (no matter how brief, like Yuma’s one liner).

Also, I think Leaf tried to appeal to the Himeyuri fans by fixing the twins’ ending a bit. Sure, Ruri still kicks Taka in the face, but you get an extended version of the ending that some fans would probably like.

On a sidenote… Karin-chan… she looks as great as ever and even better with her hair down.

Thank you so much for the heads up! I’m actually halfway through this long scenario. I does get boring at times though, so it would take a while for me.
