Bible Black (PC) review
"Bible Black is a vile, generally detestable anime series that's managed to develop a fan base over the years. What's lesser known is that the series is actually based on a similarly vile hentai game of the same title. The game manages to be a little better than you might expect, but not by much. "
Bible Black is a vile, generally detestable anime series that's managed to develop a fan base over the years. What's lesser known is that the series is actually based on a similarly vile hentai game of the same title. The game manages to be a little better than you might expect, but not by much.
This is the story of Taki Minase, your average college student. One day, he stumbles upon the key to a forbidden room in the school that is said to have been used for occult rituals several years ago. As any average college student would, he takes the key, enters the room, and finds a book known as the "Bible Black", which grants him magic powers... mainly for sexual purposes.
This is complete dreck, right?
Actually, you might be surprised. As ridiculous as the premise is, the game tries its darnedest to tell a compelling tale, and it actually succeeds for the most part. The mysteries surrounding the Bible Black are intriguing and the plot has a number of twists and turns throughout. There's quite a bit of detail to the storyline and there is a lot more time spent talking and contemplating situations than in the act, which may come as a shock for those expecting non-stop copulation. In general, the characters are relatively well-developed (and not just in the chest region), though there are a few too many who have little relevance to the plot. The dialog is typically well-written and humorous, and it succeeds admirably in conveying the character's personalities. At the same time, however, the game is marred by a number of noticeable typos that become a distraction before long. Even with these issues, when you consider that this game is intended to be smut, the plot is still more interesting than it has any right to be.
