(Note: This is a single review for all patches by xJeePx.)
The PC-98 Touhou games are largely ignored (even among the majority of the fans of the series), so it’s certainly nice to see so much dedication coming from one person into translating 2~5. Aside from some graphic artifacts here and there, the translations all look quite professional. I didn’t run across any bugs that would interfere with gameplay.
The series’ dialogue is known for being pretty silly, so I’d say it’s worth a read if you’re feeling bored and want some giggles. The dialogue is also different depending on the heroine you pick, so that adds to replay value. Just be aware that the difficulty isn’t for everyone, so if this is your first time playing and you just want to read through the text, I’d recommend setting the difficulty to Easy or Normal at most. Anything higher than that will likely get you wrecked on later stages, making you run out of continues before getting to read everything.
There’s another thing: Gensoukyou only goes up to stage 5 (rather than 6) if you’re playing on Easy. Plus, if you use continues on any game, the extra stage won’t be unlocked. So that’s something to keep in mind if you’re looking for a full experience.
