"As Kouta, the overanalyzing, virginal lead character, you’ve got to choose between these three ‘ladies’ (lucky guy). There are several decisions you have to make along the way that will impact which stream the game takes you on, and which ending you earn. The decisions you make will lead to sex in any case, so you needn’t worry too much if your head isn’t in the game. Random clicking will still enable your seeing not only Kouta banging multiple ladies, but the ladies pleasuring each other. Good times."
It’s unlikely that you stumbled upon this review by chance. You’re here because you’re into graphic hentai adventures, and you want to know if Amorous Professor Cherry is the next big thing.
Well, no, not quite. But it does deliver for the most part, in all the expected areas. The girls on offer are hot, boasting big boobs, unusually voluminous vaginal secretions, and flawless pale skin. Amorous is certainly among the best looking hentai games on the market.
It doesn’t hold back on the hardcore either; you can expect every possible synonym (in the dictionary or otherwise) to be used to describe male and female genitalia, and you can also expect Peter North-esque loads to fill and ooze out of various female orifices – when, of course, the loads aren’t painting tits and faces.
There’s a good – if small – roster of the usual hentai girl archetypes too: the popular ‘it girl,’ Kiyoka, a fellow student; Mamiko, the experienced and knowing professor and sex teacher; and of course, the game's eponymous Professor Chieri (Cherry) Hase, the uncertain, klutzy and lovable primary object of your affection.

The problem I have with Amorous is in the journey, not the destinations. The translators have laced the game with the usual stock of corn – some of Kouta’s ‘deep’ and utterly uncharacteristic reflections are so atrociously groan-worthy as to kibosh your budding erection. What’s worse, his reflections and pseudo-philosophical pre-coital banter go on for ages.
It’s a shame really, because fans of the genre aren’t solely playing for the sex scenes – the build-up lays the groundwork for the money shots, and some of Amorous’s slow builds do a genuinely good job of whetting your appetite for the glistening skin shows to come. Regrettably, the off-putting bits are so jarring, and the duration of the jabbering so consistently drawn out, that you may find yourself just clicking ‘skip’, rapid-fire style to get to the next scenario where Kouta gets his manhood wet.
Still, even when reduced in this way, Amorous manages to captivate with its lustrous, lusty scenes – some which are actually animated (joy!), and its premise. Sure it’s hackneyed material, but that’s precisely the point – the fact that it’s nothing new that mostly every boy has had a crush on one of his teachers is what makes the premise so compelling.
And so, despite the overcooked and overlong foreplay chatter, Amorous comes recommended. It’s got hot girls, and the especially soft and milky mammaries of impossibly malleable Professor Cherry on its side (I wish my crushes had been this naďve, perverse and agreeable). And with some diligent and timely fast-forwarding, Kouta’s blather won’t leave you with blue balls.
