Gal*Gun 2 is a game in which you shoot schoolgirls full of your “pheromone shot” until they collapse on the floor in ecstasy to prevent them from kissing you.
If you’re already put off by that opening line, then you don’t need to read any further. This is a strange, perverse game built for a very specific audience in mind, and outsiders will not feel welcome at all.
But even those sticking around might not find much to enjoy here, as Gal*Gun 2 is riddled with issues that even its weird charm can’t mask forever.
Notice me, senpai
Gal*Gun 2 isn’t an entirely new game, instead taking a lot of its inspiration from last year’s Gal*Gun VR but with a few changes here and there to suit traditional consoles.
It plays like a gallery shooter, with you moving a reticule around the screen with the left thumbstick and shooting at approaching girls with a tap of the A button. Hit them in the right spot and you can one-shot-“kill” them with an “ecstasy shot”, which is exactly what it sounds like.
