Sorry to say that but i think game is not worth. I already finished it before so I know what Im saying. And that game cant compete with proper japanese visual novel.

- Game is very short, you will finish it in half day. Most of japanese VNs takes weeks to finish all routes.
- No Voices!
- Only 2 chararacters
- No deep story
- Information I gained about Japan after finishing the game was not very worth
- Girls only have one pose and small amount of CG pictures.

All i can say I expected more from game.

so you missed the all point of this "game". it's not a "proper" visual novel, but more a small touristic guide made by Japanese for foreigners, no point in making it all shiny whimey or paying a fortune to have voices. (no point in making a VN costing $100 like a normal one)
so except point 5, which is questionnable/depend on the "player", all others are irrelevants.

It's unfortunate that this game did not meet your expectations. However, one should note:

- The game may be short, but that's not to say that a short game can't be good. After all, Narcissu is also short, but is a true classic. Besides, the game is priced accordingly. You're not paying the same amount as you would for a 50+ hour game, for instance.

- It would have been nice to have voices, but to be honest, voices aren't necessarily all that important. There are loads of brilliant VNs that feature no voices at all. Consider the brilliant Ace Attorney series, for example.

- The quality of the story is arguable, but what I would say is that Go! Go! Nippon! is designed to be a travel guide to Japan. It's not meant to have an especially riveting story. If you want an exhilarating plot, there are other VNs that would do that job.

- I personally think that the game features a lot of interesting information about Japan, and am glad that I played the game. Of course, how interesting/useful one would find the information varies from player to player.

- The girls actually have quite a variety of poses, and a greater number of facial expressions, so I don't see this as a problem. I think there are a decent amount of CGs for the length of this game. Since this is a shorter VN, it is to be expected that there would be less CGs than in the average VN. Besides, there are hundred-hour VNs that only have one CG, so it's not completely outrageous at all, in my opinion.

If you don't think this game is worth it, then that's too bad. But I feel that it's definitely worth giving Go! Go! Nippon! a try.

I only wrote the facts and you are now trying to vindicate the game as much as you can. MangaGamer "fans" always vindicate their games even the quality is low.

IMHO the art alone is worth 10 bucks.

I was quite disappointed by this game, it's more like a basic touristic guide in form of a visual novel than anything else. There's no interactivity whatsoever in this game...

For someone who hasn't lived in Japan, it might be fun but for someone who lived there for a few years, it's really not that great
