The most interesting part about Gal*Gun is its branching storyline and the systems it uses. Players get to choose which girl they want to date (although certain choices are locked at first), so they’ll see different storylines depending on who they chose to romance. All of the girls are presented as likable, so it actually was tough to decide at first. This is definitely a game meant to be played multiple times, which is good since it only takes a few hours to beat once.
Gal*Gun: Double Peace has a surprising amount of heart for a game that has its head lodged firmly in a gutter full of panties. The characters are likable, the plot is goofy in its seriousness, and the premise is so over the top that I couldn’t help but laugh. Sadly, the gameplay simply doesn’t hold up its end of the bargain. This on-rails shooter is too simplistic and doesn’t do a good job of keeping the gameplay feeling fresh.
Gal*Gun 2 releases on March 15 in Japan. The title has been confirmed for a Western release, but there’s not currently a release date.
