7 Sins (PlayStation 2) review
"7 Sins too many."
I get the idea behind hentai games -- you'd need to be pretty dense not to. I understand that it's like getting a girl naked in the real world: you need to plough more time and effort than you may feel is worthwhile into both before the first bra hits the floor.
Now try to imagine a Westernised hentai title being released on a platform with a markedly strong morale backbone. Like the PS2 and its sometimes-enforced anti-smut laws (it's only okay if Sony break it themselves a la God of War). Perhaps hentai prides itself on walls of text disguised as deep character development snugly tucked in between raping girls continuously until they love you for it, but that's not how we do things here in the West! Maybe instead we'd use slews of mini-games. And, of course, despite the game being illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to purchase, no actual nudity would ever actually be shown. Sure, the title would be peddled as interactive smut, but gratuitous grinding in silky underwear would be what our audience is clearly after.
It might surprise you to learn that such a game exists. It certainly surprised our very own senior editor, Jason Venter, who, shocked and bewildered at this EU-only, porn-laced PS2 game, spent a good hour pleading with me to cover it. It's not only true, but gives inane justification for my dealings with 7 Sins without bringing my outstanding gentlemanly reputation into dispute.
