Touhou Hyouibana Antinomy of Common Flowers is a simple fighting game and nothing more. It has a good soundtrack and mechanics that any player can master. Its biggest flaw is perhaps this simplicity that quickly becomes monotonous.

As a more traditional 2D fighter, Touhou Hyouibana: Antinomy of Common Flowers will scratch your itch for 1-on-1 combat and it features a lovely presentation as well. However, the lack of content and instructions is surely a tough pill to swallow.

A few well-crafted character sprites and a passable J-Pop soundtrack don’t make up for the poor localization and a nonsensical fighting system.

Touhou Hyouibana ~ Antinomy of Common Flowers can be considered one of the best official fighting games in the franchise, even if it lacks some important aspects. As much as it does not have any innovation for the genre, it has a very solid presentation and easy and simple gameplay, making it a good title for both veterans and novices. Without giving up the elements that make Touhou a highlight within the shoot 'em up genre, Antinomy of Common Flowers may even be the gateway to the franchise for consoles - and for the West as a whole.
