Higurashi When They Cry Chapter 1 Onkakushi Review | Attack On Gaming

"Higurashi When They Cry is a game described by 07th Expansion, the developers of the game, as a “sound novel.” Where a visual novel relies on the visual aspects, such as character design and background art, the sound novel relies on music and background noise to set the atmosphere and the tone of the story. The series dates back to 2002, when the first chapter, Onikakushi, was released in Japan, with an English release back in 2009 by MangaGamer themselves. Since then, another seven chapters have been created, with various spin offs and fan created chapters developed for various platforms such as PC, Playstation 3 and even the Playstation Vita. The series also has a PSP fighting game. In this remastered release on Steam, filled with updated sprites, achievements and updates, the story starts off with Onikakushi. Served as the introduction to the series, Onikakushi does have an interesting plot, it suffers from terrible pacing, juxtaposition that goes for way too long and music that is way too generic. With that said, sticking around does reward the player with an interesting middle and climax." - Attack On Gaming
