A near-direct port of the handheld release that delivers an enjoyable experience - if you don't mind all the fanservice.
All in all, it’s a simple turn-based JRPG with a unique setting and silly mechanic for leveling up the cast, with some fairly generic presentation in terms of sound and the art for the overworld, with the quality coming in from the unique character interactions, setting and punishment scenes. Fans of whipping cute girls will find it very enjoyable, while some of the more hardcore JRPG fans might find the combat system interesting enough to give it a run through, but for anyone else, it’s hard to recommend. There’s not much there for people who aren’t JRPG fans already in terms of being able to bring in new players, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
While Criminal Girls has been heavily censored, it's an enjoyable JRPG experience that's more than just fanservice.
