It's not a battle game. It's a visual novel. and a horrible one at that. In retrospect I wouldn't even pay five dollars for this.
This game turned out to be a big dissapointment despite what I had expected of it. I thought I had bought a cute tank game with cute characters cabable of entertaining with an underlying theme of Japanese militiarism and imperialism. I love war games, especially those in which you can play from a Japanese perspective. This game is far from having any historical grasp and instead has no relevence or significance to anything. This in itself can be easily excused however since taking historical viewpoints can be taboo and perhaps lead some people to avoid a game for something more palletable to their sensibilitie. However, actual battle simulation is a complete after thought. Instead, the game is hardly even a game, consisting primarily of visual novel content. I wasn't expecting this game to be a poorly-written visual novel.
The visual novel aspects of the game are horrible. The plot is so crushingly bad and the characters flatter than those found in an Ayn Rand novel, setting aside the obvious problem of a) why the hell this has to be a visual novel and b) why muh tank game needs characters with agency to begin with. THEY'RE HUMAN TANKS. I SHOULD BE THE ♥♥♥♥ING COMMANDER AND THAT'S IT. I could express how ♥♥♥♥ing bad the vn is but experience serves best. Spare yourself by not gaining the expereince.
Don't buy the game. If you do, skip all the ♥♥♥♥ing dialog. All of it. This is a trash vn with a tiny bit of user controlled combat in between sledgehammer prose and cliche, one-step-below-novice writing. If I could skip everything else I'd just play the battle sequences. In fact the entire game should be the battle sequences, WTIHOUT the destitute attemmpts at plot and characters. And without renaming Japan to Japon. And without Splitting the Empire of Japan into the Empire of Japan and Kingdom of Japan. Just u ♥♥♥♥ing wot m8. What's the purpose of any of this.
If the game were just the battles it would be good. The battles could also be a lot better but obviously weren't the focus.
edit: changed one little grammer error that didn't convey the correct meaning but left other unchanged
