Gal*Gun: Double Peace
Top Critic Average
Genres: RPG, Strategy
Double Peace takes place a year after the events of the previous title with a whole new batch of heroines, students, and teachers, bringing the total number of women in the game to over 70.
In an attempt to lead Hodai astray, as well as tempt him away from his 'chosen' girl, many of the other girls will be quite aggressive with their expressions of love and affection. Some girls might just try for a hug or a kiss, while others will bombard you with their love letters or pushing and hitting you. Girls who are possessed by demons will be especially aggressive!
Players can use the "X-Ray Zoom" feature to see through obstacles, potentially revealing information about various girls and even more. Players can also charge up their shots by holding down the shoot button, landing such a shot will cause the girl it hits to falter making her easier to take out.
Heartthrob Mode is the part of the game where players can view up to three girls from multiple angles, as well as make use of the touch panel. In order to enter Heartthrob Mode players must first max out their Heart Gauge.

I have to say, even with all that problematic content, I kind of love Gal-Gun: Double Peace not only for daring to be as stupid and perverse as it is with no excuses, but also for being one of the most content-rich and replayable games in its genre. If you can overlook (or enjoy) the cringeworthy perverseness found here, you'll find an enjoyable little shooter. Those looking to be turned on will probably be better served elsewhere unless you have a young schoolgirl fetish. I don't see how anyone could find the content found here sexually arousing, but some people also like to suck on toes, play with poop, or wear diapers, so what do I know? What you do in our own time is your business, so who cares if I think you're creepy? You shouldn't, you weirdo.
Truthfully, I went into Gal*Gun Double Peace with below zero expectations. I figured it would be a cheap, dated game that only had its obvious “fan service” going for it. It’s clearly aimed at that niche audience, but Gal Gun is fun, funny, and easy to pick up and play for countless quick sessions. The poor visuals and complicated story requirements are a shame, but they never truly soured my time with the title and as soon as I finish this review, I plan to play more.
