This is a title I find quite difficult to describe in traditional terms since I’ve played few games like it. Focused primarily on the narrative aspects and almost what I’d call a “slice of life” feel for being on the busy streets of Akihabara, but mixed with some vampires and serious perviness, Akiba’s Trip is at least unique. It’s interesting to walk around and get sidetracked by some shops or other distractions (though some of the mini games are also a bit gross, unless you’re into it) but it also doesn’t feel like enough time and effort were put into vital elements like the game’s lackluster combat… unless you’re really into the fact that clothes are shed along the way. The result is absolutely an experience unlike anything I’ve played, to be sure, but it is very much not going to be for the mainstream crowd.
