Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash
Top Critic Average
If you weren't a fan of the past Senran Kagura games and considered them far too raunchy, Peach Beach Splash isn't going to change your mind. But for me, it manages to balance fan service with fun and engaging gameplay; albeit not very challenging or complex gameplay, thanks in part to some of the worst AI I've experienced in a long while. If large wet anime chests float your boat, you'll be right at home with Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash.
The Senran Kagura franchise has explored a few different genres, from beat 'em up to Dynasty Warriors-action and even rhythm games. It seemed inevitable that they would take a stab at something like a third person shooter, and I think they managed to make a solid hit. Peach Beach Splash is not a groundbreaking, esports experience, but its mindless fun, with quirky characters and addictive customization. Fans will probably be more willing to overlook the flaws in the game, but newcomers should still find something worth hiding from their family in Peach Beach Splash.
Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash has exceeded all my expectations and is my favourite Senran Kagura game by far.
Despite its altered gameplay and occasional flaws, Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash still offers more than enough fun and fanservice to keep longtime fans happy.
For those looking for some (not so) clean fun in the sun, Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash gives the series a reason to return the beach and wish this summer vacation would never end. It's an enjoyable shooter, as long as you don't expect it to be a serious one.
The theme of wet t-shirts, water guns, and silly antics is something that I could overlook regardless of how much it just made me uncomfortable at times, but the core gameplay mechanics here just didn't do it for me.
Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash can be a romp in more ways than one. It's a decent third-person shooter with fast-paced, vertical gameplay, and there are some quirks here and there that make it stand out in its market. However, its single-player content can get noticeably repetitive and one-note amid a lot of the fluff that you'll unlock. If there's one thing the game owns with style and confidence, it's the overall presentation. We're pretty sure it's the most important part anyways.
Even beyond the game's inherent boobness, these aren't your typical water fights.
Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash is an average TPS, and it's saved only by it's sexy mechanics.

Qualms aside, if you can look passed the risqué nature of Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash you'll find an enjoyable shooter that can be a lot of fun in multiplayer. Sure, it might not be able to compete with the likes of Titanfall 2 in terms of gunplay, but I've never seen any bikini tops come undone in Titanfall either. Peach Beach Splash certainly has something unique to offer, and while all of its ideas might not be ace, you have to respect the developers for committing to an idea and simply going for it.
