User review for "Sonohanabirani Kuchidukewo (Kissing the petal)"

Girls can have sex too... without the help of men.

OK, let's be clear there - I think that two girls making out and having sex is one of the most beautiful sight one can have the honor of seeing. That said I feel there are way too few English language games dealing with that concept. So, saying that I was eagerly waiting for Count Pacula's translation wouldn't be a lie.
First thing I noticed was that "Sono Hanabira" looked good. I really liked the art from the very beginning and dove right into it. This is a mostly linear visual novel. That might be a turn off for some people but not for me. Sure, choices are there but they only determine if you are going to reach the true ending or end the game prematurely. So what about plot, characters and sex? Well, that is where the game is lacking. Plot is paper thin - it's more or less a collage of random sex escapades betwixt our two lovebirds (I didn't expect anything more from a VN that is basically a nukige). But characters are shallow too. Nanami and Yuna act like typecasts and never break out of it. Admittedly, some of the scenes are quite memorable - i.e. Nanami finding out that Yuna has an affection for her, but there are less of them that one would like.
Now what about sex..? Here is a mixed bag. Some scenes are good, some not so good and some are boring. Truth to be told, they get better in the later part of the game as the writer got into the tracks and that saves the game... for the most part. One of the scenes near the end in the bathroom is even very memorable. (In)famously so if I might so say. But here are only a few such scenes.
In the end the game was kind of disappointing. I would have given it a lower score, but I rose it a bit for the fact this is the only yuri themed game accessible for western players. Final verdict 7/10.
P.S. I couldn't run the game on the Windows XP SP2 machine in Japanese locale. I was only able to play it on a Windows 98SE OS on a virtual machine. Minor annoyance, but a real mystery for me.
