    X Change 2 | Spoilerless Review

    >-- X change 2 | Spoilerless Review -- <

    Title: X Change 2
    vndb link:
    Length: 10-30 hours

    vndb description:
    In X-Change 2, you once again take on the role of Takuya Aihara, the unlucky chemistry student at Miyanomori Private School, who has a tendency to get caught in bizarre chemistry accidents that cause you many problems. When a strange chemical turned you into a girl last year, you had a bizarre string of experiences as you learned "how the other half lived." Now, one year later, you're enjoying your school life with Asuka, your steady girlfriend. But unhappy days are around the corner, as chemistry club member Chisato uses you as a guinea pig for a new experiment, which changes you into a girl once again!

    As a girl, you find you're much more popular than before, but with practically everyone around you (both male and female) yearning to have sex with you, it can all get to be too much.

    This latest X-Change adventure features the old familiar faces, as well as many new characters and erotic plot lines. The shy boy Kouji, whose virginity you took last year on the roof of the school, bides his time waiting for his chance. Then there's Mr. Sano, the teacher known for his interest in his female students, and he's got his eyes set on you. What will you do when you encounter Maiko-chan, a girl whose confusion about men has lead her to prefer girls? What about the shy Megumi, who confesses that she's in love with your male self? And while all this is going on, you're trying to keep your tenuous relationship with Asuka intact, which isn't easy, to say the least. The biggest danger is that the changes to your body will become permanent if you don't change back soon -- but how can you find a way to become male again?

    my personal description:
    A bonafide dating sim that heavily focuses on fun and comedy and has a wide range of heroines and possibilities.
    and a dating sim can't get any closer than this one.

    this vn is for you if:
    1) you want a vn that is heavily influenced by your decission
    2) you love funny, school life, random logic vn
    3) you want multiple heroines
    4) you are tired of serious vn's
    5) you want tons of outcomes and endings
    6) you want boyish heroine

    this vn is not for you if:
    1) you wan't to play a vn with serious and deep plot
    2) you can't handle 90's art style and quality graphics
    3) you can't handle h-scenes

    Personal experience with this vn:
    Looking back to the prequel of this vn, X Change 1 or X change, this vn has obviously a huge improvement in comparison
    to its predecessor, both in content and system related stuff, which will be discussed later.

    i enjoyed this vn because it's dating sim mechanics, it really feels like legit interaction of a day to day life in the shoes of
    the protagonist, the weak point of this vn is probably that some heroine have less exposure than the others and makes
    you feel less attached to them, but other than that i really love the intertwining decision making which can't get any real
    than that.

    despite being a nikuge, this has a kinda well developed characters which is kinda unusual for a nikuge which focus heavily
    on H-scene, it is true that this has tons of H-Scene.. but it is very well placed.

    graphics:(x change 1 vs x change 2)
    in comparison to its prequel X Change 1 or X change, which was 1st released in 1997 in japan, the graphics Quality hasn't
    changed much, considering they are within the same decade, but whats improved was the number of cg and sprite animations
    which was more than doubled.

    Music, music is still a music typical of 90's... which also has an issue that will be discussed later in game issues portion.

    Voice Acting:
    this vn has been finally voiced. its prequel had no voice and at last they finally decided to voice it, and the voice of the protagonist
    indeed fits my expectation of her voice. the she delivered the speaking mannerism of the character well.

    story is practically basic then got complicated as F, thanks to certain events, which is what made it interesting plus the deep interaction

    Game issues:
    the issue here is related to music, i am not sure if this is related to my pc alone but i've checked the comment section of the download page,
    and it seems people have been getting extreme lag due to the games' mechanic on playing the OST's which are MIDI files.. i played this with an
    average spec pc: windows 7 64bit, 16gb ram I3-6100, GTX-750i and it still lagged. for a vn... that's kinda absurd... it is probably related to the
    OS since this was made for older Operating systems, i'm not sure if it will lag less on older os, but the others with lower spec computers probably
    experience a lag far worse than mine, i lagged for about 3 or 2sec when this vn changes ost or bgm.

    there is also a scene with one heroine that failed to load the ost bgm. which made the scene quiet as F, and it was an H-Scene part too.
    i'm not sure if this is a bug but this happened after 1 segment of the game, then the sounds never returned til i finished that heroines route.
    good thing is, when the sounds went away, that route was almost finished anyway..

    overall, i liked this vn more compared to xchange 1 which was 2hrs long. and this one had 10-30hrs of gameplay, and expanded the possibilities
    of the game outcome, but i would rate this one as 6(decent).
