You ever have a game that you're SURE that you're not going to like or will only play for a few minutes and then to your shock and horror find that you're actually ENJOYING the hell out of it? I have to admit that since I got my XBox a few days ago I've spent the most time playing this one.
What can I say? It's fluff, but it's FUN fluff.
The graphics are very nice, the music is decent, the volleyball games are quite fun and hard to master, the casino games are good as well, and the girls are nice to look at.
Even though I also got Shenmue II, Panzer Dragoon Orta, and Gunvalkrie with the system, this was the first game I tried and it's actually the one that I've been working on, trying to master the volleyball games. The controls are my only gripe -- sometimes my girl will jump at the ball as soon as it comes over the net without me even touching a button, which of course means it fails to go over and results at me cursing at the screen.
I just wonder what else there IS to this game. I mean, you play games, you win them, you buy items and swimsuits in the shops, you find items to give to girls so they will partner with you.....and that's it. Is there something deeper here I'm missing?
Still not a bad way to kill a few minutes.
