(This review is for the game as it is and for the ps vita rendition)

Gal*Gun Double Peace, a game I’ve been looking forward to playing for a long while now, has not disappointed – for the most part. Naturally, given the scale of the developing company and the concept of the game, I wasn’t expecting to much besides what I was offered. The game itself has a neat, funny, and sort of “out there” story in which you assume the role of the student who suddenly is the most attractive man to every girl on campus. However, you need to fend off these girls with pheromones and euphoria, or you will be loveless forever. The story is farfetched, and leads for a typical anime romcom tale, but it works to entertain.

The game is a rail shooter, and as far as its gameplay goes, it’s pretty solid. Between the multiple alternate stories/endings and the side quests, you are given a rather challenging shooting game to play through through each stage. The game as a whole is really good and entertaining; you can clear the main stories with about and hour and half each, but for trophy collectors concerned, you can comeback for more.

On the topic of the ps vita version, however, the differences are small, and there seems to be (to me) just two problems. Graphic degradation aside (because this is the vita, not the ps4), the ps vita port takes a decent amount of time to first start up the game (about 1-2 minutes total to load the game entirely) and each screen before and after shooter stages take about 1 minute to load as well. It’s nothing too bad, but it still is a little bit inconvenient for those trying to speed through. The most major issue with this port, in my opinion, is the rendering of multiple enemies. Regardless of stage, the gameplay will go smooth for you – so long as there are 3 or less enemies on the screen at the current time. If you are moving and multiple enemies are coming into play, the game will definitely begin to lag out and affect the ability to accurately aim. However, this lag ends quickly, but it does take a moment to re-adjust.

All things aside, Gal*Gun is still a very entertaining and fun game to play, and this port retains all of the PS4 features with a few loading bugs to boot. Highly recommended, especially for those wanting to grow the Vita collection.

Top Critical Review

Very, very short review:

While this game may come off as being perverted in the sense that you’re firing hormone bullets with the intention being to get young girls to orgasm in order to get them to stop chasing you… I still say that it shouldn’t be shunned. The game features no graphic imagery, and the worst it gets is “unsettling” during the touch-screen portions (Vita Version) of the game where you have to rub specific parts of the girls.

The gameplay is simple: Lots and lots of girls want to express their love for you via love letters, kissing, punching you (it’s a fetish, I guess?) or yelling their affections openly (all of which as taken as damage in the game). The reason for this mass-affection is that your character has been accidentally hit with an overpowered cupids arrow (or, in this case, some sort of bullet). The angel that hit you, as a way of apology, decides to show you how to fight off the girls using the same power you’ve been cursed by. The reason being: You must find the girl you truly care for and let her know your feelings or you’ll be stuck with whichever random girl successfully grabs you.

True horror, I know.

The story has multiple paths (up to 8 or so? This is based on memory) and is incredibly wacky and cute while keeping the perverted stuff to a tame degree. While there is some odd DLC available for the game, I’d recommend NOT buying it as it adds nothing to the gameplay. (Read: Nothing.)

There are some major reasons for my 3 star rating, so I’ll list them below:
– The loading times for this game are AWFUL. If you switch screens to ANYTHING at all you will load for a while. New level, shop screen, point screen, setting new options in the menu… you name it, you load it. Poorly optimized.
– The aiming controls are awkward and bad. The cursor either moves too slow or too fast, and with it being on a Vita I’d have expected to be able to either using the Vita’s motion controls for aiming, OR the touch screen for shooting. Neither are allowed for able to be used.
– The game is not PSTV compatible. With it having a PS4 version, it definitely should have been.
– The game is very short per path. Each stage lasts 1-2 minutes, tops, and there aren’t many stages before the final boss in the path chosen. You realistically spent more time loading than playing in some situations.
– The auto-moving camera moves far too erratically to allow for quick reflexes or aiming of any kind. This means that you can easily miss items that you were fully expecting and waiting for, despite playing a stage several times over attempting to get it.
– With that, there is no easy way to replay any given stage. You cannot pause and retry a stage, you cannot choose to attempt that stage a second time after finishing it, and you cannot go backwards on the timeline while on a story path. Replaying a stage is a no-go.
– Finally, there isn’t much extra content to collect or do other than the main gameplay. Collecting girl’s files gives next to nothing and is of little importance. The stats in the game matter little, and there aren’t any unlockable costumes, accessories, bonus modes or sound tests to speak of. You unlock next to nothing.

There are several more nitpicks about the game, but those are the major ones. The game is cute, but I don’t truly recommend it to anyone.

5.5 / 10 – Vita Version.
