Be My Princess Review

 (This the GREE VERSION of Be my Princess)

You are an exchange student in the Charles Kingdom. While strolling around on your first day in the country, you run into an old man (who looks like santa) who seemed troubled by his back. With you having a heart of gold, you helped him out and in thanks, he gave you his number and tells you to call him if ever you needed help. After that, you encounter some meaningful and tragic events with really good looking gentlemen. \(//∇//)\

And one way or another, you found yourself in a party full of nobles and on top of that, you are made to look like a princess! Not only that but the princes of the 6 most powerful kingdoms are there as guest of the head of the castle. You really don’t find yourself fitting in and as you were about to mind your own business, you are offered a dance by a handsome stranger.

Who will be your partner for the night?

There are two kinds of Be My Princess, Voltage and GREE. Voltage is the original Japanese version (though they have an english version) and GREE is the Interactive type of Be My Princess. Jessi plays the Voltage version, and Ichi plays the GREE Version ♪(┌・。・)┌

Gameplay: ★★★★

Jessi’s POV:

Not really much to tell. 【・ヘ・?】It’s in English (you only need to purchase the story of your choosing). Prologue is free though.  Basically, in the story, you get to choose between choices and then you will arrive to an ending, happy or good (don’t worry though, you get to see each of the endings either way).

Ichi’s POV:

Other than the fact, I am a free user that totally uses the ballroom party and that I can’t spend a single penny on it, I like it…. I think.  There is this Gree version which I use,  so assuming its the same…..Well WHY ARE THE CLOTHES SO EXPENSIVE!? GOOD LORD. The gacha version was the only thing that going well, but the MONEY MAN MONEY. How many parties will I have to go just to get MONEY!? (丿>ロ<)丿 ┤∵:.

Also in the Gree version, you get to decorate you’re home and yes, your house changes with the prince you route with, which by the way you’re routing prince will come by once and awhile to look at your house and insult compliment it.

Art: ★★★★

Jessi’s POV:

Art is good. Well, as far as any other visual novel there are in phones, this one is probably one of the top.(ノ ̄ー ̄)ノ (and it should be since each story cost like $3.99!!)

Ichi’s POV:

Art….. I want the back ground changed. No wait… Hmm…. I want to change Lord Micheal’s appearance, he’s too awesome to be an old bearded Santa in blue. OH OH THE CLOTHES. GOOD LORD KEITH You skinned ever single cheetah or leopard for your night wear … SHAME ON YOU. Animals don’t spawn like in MMORPGS you know!? DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON YOUR SWIMWEAR.

Like I said, MONEY. STORAGE SPACE. MY FURNITURE SPACE.  THOSE CHIBIS ARE SO ADORABLE— ARGH! (丿>ロ<)丿 ┤∵:.

Sound: ★★★

Jessi’s POV:

It was…..fine…..I guess??「(°ヘ°)  Kinda melodramatic and majestic feeling into it. I dunno….it isn’t really voiced. Oh! but they do have a drama CD. And they really nailed Wilfred’s voice! Nobuhiko really is a well suited voice for him( aka that perverted space alien Takumi). And Keith is arrogant as usual. Roberto is Rhyohei aka Kise from Kuroko no basket.( ノ^ω^)ノ゚

Ichi’s POV:

Sleepy. It makes it sleep, just like Starry Sky do. As my partner Jessi said the drama CD makes up of the voiceless and sleepiness of the game.

 

Story: ★★★

Jessi’s POV:

Typical story really, prince falls for you/takes an interest in you, you fall for him, love is forbidden, you are hinder in your love, typical drama, with a little spice of love triangles for some routes. ( ノ^ω^)ノ゚

But the redeeming point is the character’s interaction with each other. And sometimes the MC’s interaction with them (at least she is not a sitting pretty log). Oh! and that Wilfred knows his way with his princess! And~~ for bonus points, Voltage throws in three tsunderes!(ノ≧∀≦)ノ

I would like to ask for a butler route, cause who can resist that cuteness and dedication they’re giving to you?!. There is one butler route but—its not the butler of the prince, its the butler of Santa (though he is hot (~‾▿‾)~).

Ichi’s POV:

GOOD LORD. I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE TO START. Its a (。☉౪ ⊙。) ANTI COMMON SENSE story. We got a blonde beast who thinks of 24/7 have a sweet time with the heroine, a uptight prince who was later wanted to make babies that will be half the population of the country, a STUPID EGOISTIC prince who later wants ELVIS to sing in the wedding (not knowing he’s already DEAD) and is willing to spend any amount of money despite having declared to be in a budget, a flowery silent perverted prince who simply love macaroons, MY BELOVED Asian prince who is by the way the only one who has some sanity left,  lastly an MIA prince who plays cob and robbers with his butler as his butler is acting like a stalker rather than a butler with all the tracking device.

The butler mostly goes like (ノ♯`△´)ノ~’┻━┻ DAMMIT GIRL. SIT THERE IN THE ROOM AND DON’T DO ANYTHING. YOU’RE TROUBLE STOP IT . except Al(the butler of the MIA prince.)

Put that all together with the plot of “You are peasant. You cannot marry him”  with a pinch of Butler x Heroine to form a Beautiful love triangle…. I can say, yup, you’d stare at the screen replaying the scene over and over again in your head.

(fanmade but it definitely show the love, it’s a great video ❤  *credits to the owner*)

Overall: ★★★★

Jessi’s POV:

Well, its good being a phone app and all. Its worth the money…i guess. Characters are fun, story is applicable as far as forbidden love is concerned. CGs are good.  Character developments are good too–somehow.(~ ̄▽ ̄)~

Well, Voltage keeps on adding side stories in this, though they are really cute and satisfying stories, I think they are just milking money from us.(〜 ̄△ ̄)〜 I don’t really hate the idea, but I also don’t like it very much. But if it is voiced by a seiyuu (Toriumi, Shinnosuke or Wataru) I might reconsider—then again, its price will increase too.ヽ( °◇°)ノ

Ichi’s POV:

Overall….. I think I chipped off something on my sanity here….In a good way. ヾ(@゜∇゜@)ノ Oh well, if they can only do a psp version of this and of course improve some more of the character sketch, well…. I can predict the circle of fan with this game is going to sky rocket. It a game which I’d like to play again, but with the risk of chipping another shard of my sanity away. ( ̄へ ̄) Parties and dress up. Titles to obtain, even your housing counts too!

I rather play what Jessi plays! GREE you—– (丿>ロ<)丿 ┤∵:.
