Ok, so I finally had time today to finish playing through the game.
I played through the game with Minako, but the character selection doesn't alter the overall story at all.
I'll post the story here, but I'm going to post it in a spoiler code for one reason.
I'm going to record a full playthrough of the game and upload it to YouTube so if any of you want to experience the game first
that way without spoilers you have that option.
I also want you to tell me which character you want me to play as. Usagi, Minako, Rei, Makoto, or Ami and whichever gets the most votes will be the one I do.
As for the game itself, it's alright. It's a visual novel so it has voice acting, music, and the occasional choppy animation.
The voice acting is great as expected, the music gets the job done but is nothing spectacular (except the title screen song).
There is also a single mini-game you can play and it's very easy and very pointless, but still cool that they included it in there.
There are no bonuses for completing the game.
There are choices in the game, but they seem to have absolutely no impact on the outcomes.
Now, onto the story:
One night Artemis or Luna (can't remember which) spots a shadow which looks like Nephrite and he disappears into Yume Land (not sure what the English translation of the
amusement part in English is, but I'll just call it Dream Land). Artemis tells Minako about it and they decide to start investigating. The other Senshi get involved as well.
Nephrite goes to Naru's place where he is ambushed by the other three Shitenou members (Zoisite, Kunzite, and Jadeite). The senshi transform and arrive to help, but they
are too late and Nephrite gets taken to Queen Beryl. He was able to give a clue about something before he's taken away though. Queen Beryl forces a mask onto him which
I can only assume she used to temporarily control him. (They were all wearing masks except for him). With the character I chose it doesn't really show what Nephrite does after that.
Then they reveal to the Senshi that they have monuments set up over the city that they'll use to drain the energy of the entire place. They give the Senshi 1 hour to figure out
where they are and to stop them. Minako ends up fighting Kunzite and then they all go to where Usagi is. It's revealed that Past Wiseman brought them back and made a contract with them
to steal the Maboroshi no Ginzuisho and return it to him/her (not really sure what gender to put on it. It's a giant green thing with 2 voices. One man's voice and one woman's voice). Mamo-chan ends up showing up and tells Usagi he'll fight Queen Beryl so she can go defeat Past Wiseman. Nephrite shows up with a piece of black crystal (which I forgot to mention Naru randomly gets earlier on) and says he'll go save Tuxedo Mask. Nephrite uses it to bring the past memories back of the rest of the Shitenou and they remember they serve Endimion. Queen Beryl then no longer has any control over them and the shitenou team up with the Senshi to defeat Past Wiseman. In the end Past Wiseman is annihilated and the Shitenou and Beryl get reincarnated so they can live a normal life (or something like that).
That's the gist of the story. Sorry if I forgot anything. I didn't make any notes so that's all off the top of my head.
There's a lot of the classic TV Show humor and overall the game was quite enjoyable.
It wasn't as interactive or packed with as many goodies as the Urusei Yatsura PC Engine game, but overall I'm glad I played it.
Hope this helps you guys out and please let me know which character you'd like me to use when playing through for the recording.
