Hentai Vs Evil – PS5 Review

Hentai vs Evil is probably the most audacious cash grab I have ever seen. It employs a provocative title in order to appeal to a certain sub-culture of society. While delivering the actual bare minimmum it can to be called a game!

Hentai Vs Evil is a weird title to be writing for a PS5 game and an area of “Internet Culture” I am happy being ignorant about. But when the review code arrived from EastAsiaSoft in my email I thought I would see how bad it could be. Oh, it is bad…but not for the reasons I thought!

I was intrigued to see just exactly what Hentai vs Evil was all about. There is no way that Sony is gonna allow some bizarre Japanese porn simulator onto their platform! So what exactly is Hentai about Hentai vs Evil…Well, nothing. The three “anime style” playable characters are the only thing Japanese about this game.

Now I am in no way asking for porn to be available on the PS5 but surely this title is false advertising? Once you realise that then you suddenly see Hentai vs Evil for what it is. A cash grab at a subculture. Sell them the title and deliver nothing!

Seriously there is nothing in this game. Watch the trailer above. There, now you know everything about the game. Seriously I am not joking it took me 27 minutes to complete the whole game and get the platinum trophy! It only took that long because I tried rushing the last level and died twice.

Think I am been harsh and hyperbolic? OK let’s take a look at the press release:

Sometimes a little zombie killing and demon slaying is all you need, but a dash of naughty flavor to spice things up certainly can’t hurt, right? In Hentai vs. Evil, demons have invaded the city, the suburbs and even the beach, turning the residents into flesh-eating zombies and throwing cute girls into cages. It’s time to stop the madness! Rescue those girls, have them join your ranks as you take down the source of evil in a rain of bullets and look good doing it!

Featuring three playable characters, all customizable to your liking, Hentai vs. Evil offers a hedonistic action experience that prizes freeform fun above all else. Navigate wide open stages on-foot, utilize a variety of weapons to take down your foes, survive by grabbing power-ups and make sure no waifu gets left behind!

Now lets go through that press release…

“Sometimes a little zombie killing and demon-slaying is all you need, but a dash of naughty flavour to spice things up certainly can’t hurt, right?” The naughty flavour they are talking about is the three female playable characters and their skimpy attire. That is it. No naughtiness, no innuendo or entendre in the dialogue because there is no dialogue. In fact, this press release has more story for Hentai vs Evil than the actual game does!

In Hentai vs. Evil, demons have invaded the city, the suburbs and even the beach, turning the residents into flesh-eating zombies and throwing cute girls into cages.” This sentence right here conveys all the content that is in Hentai vs Evil. There are 3 levels in the entire game. The suburbs, the city and the beach. On each level, you have to kill 12 reapers and then stand in front of the cage the cute girl is trapped in to complete the level. I say cute girl because that is what the press release calls them. Hentai vs Evil is so devoid of content that the three playable characters don’t actually have names!

Featuring three playable characters, all customizable to your liking,” There are as mentioned before 3 skimpily clad playable characters. The customisable to your liking bit of the press release eludes to the fact you can change your characters size, weight and breast size. Although I really don’t see the point in changing breast size as you never see your character from the front. So pointless really.

utilize a variety of weapons to take down your foes, survive by grabbing power-ups” There are about half a dozen guns in the game, 2 machine guns, a shotgun, a sniper rifle, a grenade launcher. I didn’t find any other weapons and to be honest, couldn’t be arsed looking for them. There are two different power up’s in Hentai vs Evil which are obtained by shooting down yellow toolboxes that are floating in the air. These are instant kill bullets and incendiary bullets that set zombies on fire.

and that is it. That is pretty much the entire game content of Hentai vs Evil covered. I am not joking there is nothing more.

Graphically Hentai vs Evil isn’t bad. It looks slightly dated and like it was thrown together using free asset packs or something. It isn’t terrible. It is serviceable for what the game is and let’s be honest here that isn’t much.

I wasn’t expecting mind-blowing PS5 graphics but Hentai vs Evil is a couple of levels above a game you would expect to find on Miniclip.com and that is probably the nicest thing I have said about Hentai vs Evil in this entire review

Final Thoughts

Hentai vs Evil is probably the most audacious cash grab I have ever seen. It employs a provocative title in order to appeal to a certain sub-culture of society. While delivering the actual bare minimmum it can to be called a game!

During my time as a games reviewer, I have played some bloody awful games. But even in the worst games, I have played I can see some redeeming features, Understand what the developer tried and failed to achieve. or at the least appreciated that time and effort has gone into creating the game. I can hand on my heart and swear to Nimah that I cannot do any of that with Hentai vs Evil.

Hentai vs Evil is currently £7.99 in the PSN store and honestly, I can’t recommend it even if it was free. You can achieve a platinum trophy in under 30 mins so…Trophy Hunters have fun!

Final Score – 0/10
