The setting and characters are all good, but nothing ever happens to really make you care about either. The game does feature a free patch to add back all the censored content, so anyone looking for a nukige title will probably enjoy Sakura Nova. Unfortunately, those looking for a memorable story or plan on playing without the patch are likely to be disappointed.
Gameplay: There are choices to be made and three different endings, but the story is a bit lacking.
Graphics: Like other titles in the Sakura series the visuals are beautiful, but static.
Sound: Not much to say about the music, but the voice acting is pretty good
