Blue Reflection 

 

I am thankful Koei Tecmo America sent Family Friendly Gaming a digital download code for Blue Reflection on the Playstation 4. This girls only high school role playing game clocks in at 19 gigs in terms of game size. Blue Reflection is a strong 'T' rated game. There is some content in Blue Reflection that could be considering entering the 'M' realm. Blue Reflection goes right up to the line and some might think it crosses it at certain points in time.

The story line in Blue Reflection revolves around Hinako Shirai. She was a ballet star in middle school. An injury to her knee retired her rather young. She finds out she is a Reflector. What is a Reflector? Sort of a magical fairy human who has a ring that lets them go into the emotions of others and stabilize them. Why do they need to stabilize them? Because demons come in and try to take the essences. If a person loses too many essences they die.

The issues families can have with Blue Reflection are lack of attire, nudity, enticement to lust, magic, violence, demons, sexual innuendo, bad language, and more. There are some really uncomfortable situations included in Blue Reflection. I have no idea why the developer thought they were a good idea. In fact I know plenty of people who will consider it a bad idea. More sales would have been made without the highly offensive and controversial content.

There are three main parts in Blue Reflection. The first is all of the dialogue. We can't save with all of the chitter chatter. Then there is the battle areas where we fight demons and eventually bond with the emotion of the person we are trying to save. We can't save in there either. Finally there is massive boss battles. We can't save during that. Blue Reflection saves at the end of a chapter, and when we are running around the school. Meaning between dialogue, battles, and boss fights.

The role playing elements of Blue Reflection are a bit on the light side. I also have problems relating to Blue Reflection. I am not a girl. I am not in a Japanese high school. I wish there were more games based in American high schools. The turn based battles are pretty basic. We can charge up, and there is also an overdrive. Generally attacking normal enemies will defeat them.

I like the music in Blue Reflection. It helped keep me awake. For some reason the Japanese voices in Blue Reflection put me to sleep. I got sleepy every time I went through the long dialogue sequences in Blue Reflection. I tested this with a few others here at Family Friendly Gaming and they all had the same reaction to Blue Reflection. I am not sure why kind of audience Blue Reflection is trying to reach.
