SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! - Full Course
Top Critic Average
It might be a little difficult talking about this one with your friends...but then again, maybe not. If you like teenage girls with large chests, food, and rhythm games, then Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! - Full Course will deliver for you.
Bon Appétit is one part rhythm game, one part cooking, and endless amounts of grimy sexuality. The more time you spend with it, the more likely it is you’ll come away feeling dirty and depressed. If you want to both enjoy a game and look at boobs, there are plenty of better titles out there.
Bon Appétit will still have its followers, and while not inherently bad as far as gameplay goes, the songs used don’t really do much for me and as we all know, the visual style and content makes me feel gross pretty much all of the time.
In Bon Appetit, the woman are well designed and varied. The animation and physics have been amped to provide far more bounce in their breasts then you’d find in reality.
Overall, Senran Kagura Bon Appetit is going to be exactly what was expected for fans of Senran Kagura titles. It’s a decently fun game that may or may not last depending on how into rhythm games the buyer is, with the heavy fan-service that makes Senran Kagura the lewd but not nude series it’s built itself on. Not complex, but it doesn’t really need to be, anyone who was looking forward to this title already had their eyes on it, and for those people, the Steam release offers the definitive way to play the game, at full resolution with any controller that has at least ten or so buttons. Fun but fleeting.
If Iron Chef and Russ Meyer collaborated... this may well be the result (but with a bit more humour).
Senran Kagura Bon Appetit Full Course delivers a good fan-service experience with the pretty girls and all the other things, but it's far from being an even decent rhythm game.

Overall Senran Kagura Bon Appetit! is fun, as the rhythm portions and the soundtracks that they use mesh well together. But let's not pull punches about this; this is a game that is going to be exclusively of interest to existing fans of Senran Kagura, and who are also fans of rhythm games. It's not going to convert anyone to the franchise, and unlike the likes of Persona 4 Dancing All Night, it's also not meaty enough as a rhythm game to appeal to people who aren't already deeply involved in the genre. It's pure fanservice.
Whilst this should really have a 7.5 score, because of how polished and self fulfilling it is as a Senran Kagura game. I can’t justify a lower score unless rating it as a game for everyone. Even if the fan service is a little over the top, it’s too tongue and cheek to take seriously.
While Bon Apetit! feels more like a fan-service spin off than a real game at times, it’s actually a lot of fun… It’s light-hearted and witty with a silly side that helps to de-sexualise the more lewd content.
