Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire (PC) Review

Review for Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire on PC

The video game market is flooded with Mahjong solitaire titles - so much, in fact, that, although definitely a genre that belongs in the Far East, the West simply could not resist the pleasure offered by this tile-based variation of good ol' solitaire. With Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire being nothing more than an updated version of Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire, though, the question is simply: why choose this over the original or any other on the market? The answer? Because, typical of Zoo Corporation's creations, this has pretty girls in it.

Want an explanation of the rules of Mahjong solitaire? Google it! This review won't waste any time with going into depth about this title… Mainly because there is no depth, as this is nothing more than just another one of its kind. In fact, if pleased with any other Mahjong solitaire, and especially Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire, there's simply no reason to try this out… other than the fact that the current and updated cute girl roster is both larger, and twice as… delicious.

Yes, that's the selling factor of Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire, and, to be perfectly honest, that's not a bad thing as, unlike the vast majority of fan service-y products, the sexiness here is the cherry on top - not the cake itself. Furthermore, Ayase Hazuki, while not the most innovative or talented amongst manga artists, has crafted a nice variety of cuties to ogle at, each with their own assortment of clothing attire.

You see, the goal here (besides winning the actual game) is to complete a series of levels to unlock more outfits. Yes, expect a parade of stereotypes, ranging from the coy and busty young girl or the extra… err, sensitive mature housewife, to the petite blonde Lolita, cute J-Pop idol, and then some.
Generally, its typical anime stuff, so haters probably won't want to touch this with a stick, but it's hard not to accept the fact that it still looks pretty.

The thing is that, as mentioned earlier, the girls are not the main focus - instead, they just manage to make the left side of the screen a lot prettier than your basic freeware Mahjong solitaire game. Finally, while the OST is another example of a lack of originality, it actually offers a nice variety of pretty catchy tunes, although some definitely smell a bit more date sim-esque for their own good. Some may want to lower the voice-overs, though… Not because they are bad or anything, but mainly because some of the girls can get… pretty excited by the simple process of finding a pair of tiles to delete… Nothing too NSFW, but definitely not something that the neighbours should know about, either.

As for the game at hand, it's freaking Mahjong solitaire, with nothing special about it, other than the fact that each girl represents a different chapter, with each subsequently a bit harder than before. For those who don't know anything about it, it's a game that involves quick thinking skills, strategy, and a fine pair of eyes, especially if you want to make it to the higher levels of the leaderboard hierarchy. As for those who just want to chill out, just turn Easy Mode on, forget about the timer, and acquire three shuffles and hints per match to make things a bit easier.

Back to the big question, though: why spend any money on this when there are literally hundreds of Mahjong solitaire titles out there, with some even mixing things up a bit? Simple. Try this out not because Zoo Corporation's creation is very good despite its simplicity, not because it is coupled by a bunch of yummy girls to keep you company, but because Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire is super-cheap.

Very Good - Bronze Award

Rated 7 out of 10

Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire won't win any awards for originality, not even in the super-bloated world of Mahjong solitaire games, yet fans of the genre will enjoy it despite the lack of any extra bells and whistles. Furthermore, the price of the whole package is almost as delicious as the girls in it.
