The Sagara Family is a traditional Japanese adult hentai game. These are quite different to traditional adult games so may require a little practice at first; however, stick with it because they are fun to play, amusing and surprisingly sexy. Bishoujo games, or dating sims as this type is also called are very in depth and absorbing.
From the main screen of the Sagara Family you get five options; “new game” and “quit” need no explanation and “continue” allows you to start the game from a previous save point. “Extra” offers you the ability to enjoy CGs, erotic scenes and music from the game; CGs are only added after you clear the game, so get to it. “Option” displays the options screen for you.
It is worth taking a look at the “extras” and then clicking on “Scene Recollections”; you will not be able to access them initially but it shows you just how involved the story can be. Once you have accessed an erotic scene in the game you will be able to come back and replay any of the open scenes.
The “options” menu provides graphics and sound choices plus allows you to exit the game; also you can set the game to full screen mode, return to the opening menu, or get help. The help is worth reading as it covers everything you need to know about the game.
Whist playing the Sagara Family you can access a command menu; from here you can Load or Save a game. You can also set the story to Auto which will display the text automatically; “skip” lets you fast forward (clicking on the screen stops the skip). There is “backlog” which will step the dialog back one, and Options (as above). The keyboard can be used too, but this is all detailed in the help.
The Sagara Family is a command selection adventure game (similar in operation to the old text adventures). This game has a multi-ending system; the choices you make when a command selection is displayed will determine how the story unfolds. Therefore the game has a vast amount of different twists, turns and endings.
Getting your head around this adult game style isn’t difficult, it’s just different. The story is very entertaining and the graphics are very good. The erotic sex scenes are surprisingly arousing, you will not get bored waiting for the choices!
Whilst playing the Sagara Family you can switch to full screen at any time which is well worth doing. Also you can right click the screen to clear the text and menus so you just see the picture.
The Sagara family consists of four beautiful daughters and one very sexy mother. Yusuke, the main character of the game, and male, goes to board with them whilst he attends college.
Yusuke is absolutely ecstatic to be surrounded by beautiful women, but he may have a hard time getting along with them. Each character is unique and they’re not used to having a man around, and many unexpected events occur. Mostly the characters enjoy the excitement, but sometimes the events are pretty hard to cope with.
The Sagara Family story unfolds with background music that changes depending upon the mood of the scene; the music is well suited to the scene but does seem a little repetitive on occasion. The characters talk in Japanese and the voices are quite appealing, all dialogue is in English. The sound effects overall in any of the sex scenes throughout the hentai game are quite erotic.
You play the part of Yusuke; as you progress through the game the personalities of each character becomes apparent and you start to feel as if you know them. The ages of the girls range from 18 year old Ruruka to 22 year old Arisa with Erisu and Sanae being 19 and 20 respectively; Maria, their extremely hot mother is 38, Milf or what!
If you have never played a Japanese hentai sex game before then search the internet for a walkthrough to help you out; for example search for “Sagara Family walkthrough”. If not just take a chance and see what happens. I searched for a walkthrough and followed the advice to get a good ending for Ruruka.
The game took me several hours from start to finish, possibly due to my newbie h-gamer status. However, based on the possible variations and outcomes of the Sagara Family bishoujo game this would indicate that the repeat playability of the game is extremely good.
As the game plays out and the story unfolds you find yourself getting engrossed in the storyline; it is like reading an adult comic and playing an adult game at the same time. The story unfolds with different threads and emotions, humour, excitement, sympathy, arousal and many more.
The scene changes as the story unfolds and the graphics are very good. In places throughout the Sagara Family there are animated sex scenes which are even more of a turn on.
Finally the story will reach its climax and depending on how you made your choices the ending for specific girls will be good or bad. A good finish to the game however is extremely arousing, not just due to the images, but largely due also to the accompanying dialogue.
