Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire (Nintendo Switch) Review

Review for Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire on Nintendo Switch

The Pretty Girls “series,” consists of a bunch of casual-friendly titles, ranging from card games like poker and solitaire, as well as copies of arcade hits like Qix, with the purpose being to “reveal” the girl(s), and of course unlock more costumes to add some kind of variety as well. A mixed bag in terms of quality, no entry has ever been bad, yet not many can actually be considered big recommendations. Luckily, Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire, like it’s cousin Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire, belongs in those few that are, especially on the casual-friendly hybrid that is the Switch.

Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire is… well, a Mahjong Solitaire game. It’s simple as that. It has no additional bells and whistles, and nothing that differentiates it from other similar titles - well apart from the titular pretty girls that stand right next to the game area. Obviously, this won’t go into the specifics of Mahjong, as virtually everyone and their grandma knows the rules. Just remember that it’s entertaining, mildly addicting, and in this case has as nice balance between challenge and casual-friendly fun, with each stage being a bit harder than the previous one, with more tile types, and higher complexity. Add to that some anime cuties, and that fun increases a notch or two… or three… or four.

Yes, the incentive here is once more to unlock more costumes, as well as girls, with each of these having about three to four costumes, with the players having to complete three levels to unlock each one. Compared to Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire the girls and their costumes aren't that varied and… imaginative, but they are definitely pleasing to the eye. This is also one of the games in the series that has a nice audio-visual quality, with clean character design, and crisp sound, whereas others look and sound as if they came straight from the '90s.

Obviously, this isn't something meant to be played again and again. It's a casual friendly card game that one can spend some time with while riding a train, right before bedtime, or while in the loo - just make sure to not let people outside hear the "excitement" of the girls. Despite its simplicity, however, it's great fun, and a perfect match for the Switch's portability and touch screen support. It should also be added that this is one of the few 'Pretty Girls' instalments that have fast loading. Oh, and as always, if you want to make things really casual, there's an Easy mode that enables three hints and shuffles.

Very Good - Bronze Award

Rated 7 out of 10

Definitely one of the better entries in the Pretty Girls "franchise." Simple but fun, lewd yet safe, Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire is a good choice for those who want some anime sexiness and/or cuteness along with their casual-friendly fun - and as always, the Switch is the best platform to experience this on, due to its hybrid nature.
