Okay, I spent an entire 6 hours and 9 minutes completing this mod and getting all 42 of its endings. Oh yes, the absolute joy in playing this mod is completely unparalleled. Way of the Warrior? What's that? Adam's Story? Oh please. Gangs of Fury? Utter rubbish to this grandiose masterpiece
The stages are beautifully designed and expertly crafted. I appreciate the WSE team for deciding to rip stages directly from Beats of Rage, with all the lifebars and sprites still embedded in the graphics. It makes the stages incredibly lively with all those creatively designed sprites in kickass poses fighting static enemies. The blur effect is especially a great touch, making the stages much more dynamic. The custom palettes are especially genius, and I'm surprised the WSE team managed to create proper naked renditions of not only the enemies, but of the characters, with working anatomy and all. Delicious.
Speaking of working anatomy, did I mention the soundtrack? To be honest, it felt like an afterthought, especially with all the moaning and cries of agony that drowned out the sounds, but even that made the mod all the more excellent. Granted, it's not the kind of mod I'd play in front of my parents, but it's dark and edgy, and that makes it all the more mature for taking these risks.
The true glory of the mod is the gameplay. Being able to elevate your street status from street slut to full fledged pornstar is a first for modding everywhere, and it's handled oh so perfectly. Each profession grants you a variety of perks such as bashing foes with gigantic rubber dildos and fleshlights. Your characters skills change too, and suddenly everyone were grinding and ass rushing like Ash. It was a glorious moment managing to power up all my characters to such a level and I felt a rush of clima- I mean sense of accomplishment sinking all those hours into turning all my characters into STD-ridden prostitutes.
The enemy placement is absolutely FLAWLESS! Granted, all the Galsias and Donovans have been replaced slashers and kickboxers, and you're guaranteed to find them in mobs of 5-6 at a time even on Very Easy, but it's the CHALLENGE that matters. I mean, think about it from a realistic perspective - if you were a crime boss who wanted to stop a bunch of do-gooder vigilantes, you'd send out the best of the best, no? Each route carries their own special quirk, ranging from fending off three Abadedes with only one stick of candy to fighting an entire group of suits and jugglers with just a six bullet peashooter on a truck. The level design is brilliant and you end up in a wide variety of places such as a whorehouse, an airport, a brothel, a hospital, an orgy, a university, an orgy in a university, and much more! I can't spoil the last few stages, but you're guarantee to leave with a happy ending!
Speaking of happy endings, how could I forget the massage mini-game at the end of stage 5? It's definitely a challenge, but now I'm always consistently able to get happy endings every time and all the time.
And how could I forget about the plot? Oh yes, it's quite possibly the best written material on the planet. At first, I was absolutely disgusted with Big Momma's diabolical plans of taking over Wood Oak City and turning into her giant brothel. But as the game progressed, I learned about her tragic backstory and how she rose to power to the Imperial Palace. I knew it was right to stop her, but I felt so sympathetic to her cause, I couldn't resist serving under her, no matter where she may go. The character development was equally impressive, ranging from Axel's gradual acceptance to his new profession or Blaze's openness to her very first bukkake scene. It was heartbreaking to discover Elle's gruesome fate at the end of her scenario, so much I don't think I'll be sleeping for weeks. Oh did I mention each character has their own ending? This is quite a first for scenarios, and it's about time other modders take this as a reference for future works to come. Works like 1984, Godfather, and Metal Gear Solid have nothing on this epic, NOTHING
PLAY IT NOW! Not next week, not two days from now, not in the next few hours, not even in five minutes. Play it IMMEDIATELY
! You'll be thanking me for it, and entire WSE team for it later. It'll change your life and the way you think about life forever. It did for me.
What? You're expecting me to say something different?
