Gameplay: published September 12th, 2021 (2/5★)

Remember back in school when the teacher would play a movie in class? And remember when the teacher would give you a stack of questions you’re supposed to fill out while you watch? That’s what it’s like to play From Paris with Love: Passion with view. The film is separated into eight “parts” with five multiple choice questions. These questions will quiz you on seemingly mundane details, such the quantity or qualities of props within the movie. If you answer a question wrong, you’ll have to wait thirty ten seconds before trying again. From Paris with Love: Passion with view lacks basic media player functionality, so you’re forced to watch each part from start to finish. If you want to minimize time spent on questions, it’s a good idea to review or take notes before watching the movie. It sucks watching one or more timers count down without anything else to do. Whenever I goofed, I minimized the application and went back to writing this article. Once all of the questions have been correctly answered, you’re free to watch the film without interruptions!

Before I posted my review, NSFW18 Games already reduced the count-down timer and implemented enhanced media player functionality. Now you’re able to use video controls to search for your answers!

Sexual Content: published September 12th, 2021 (2/5★)

The game is centered on a single, twenty-minute film featuring a futa/lesbian couple engaging in a variety of sexual positions. The game says it’s “770 seconds”, but I guess I’ll take NSFW18 Games‘ word for it. The movie kicks-off with a a slideshow, which I suspect was avoid the need for voiced lines. The animation leaves something to be desired, but it’s. . . okay. Numerous visual errors and awkward posing took me out of the moment. I thought each position was a little dragged out (it’s clear the animators needed to stall for playtime.) The final cumshot is really something; Ariana’s wiener acts less like a wee-wee and more like a firehose. I love excessive, physics-based cumshots but the duration and viscosity would be more appropriate for watersports.

Story: published September 12th, 2021 (1/5★)

Lory and Ariana are in Paris. . . and then they fuck?

Sound: published September 12th, 2021 (2/5★)

The user-interface is riddled with sound effects. It’s kind of like dicking around in Mario Paint, but not as satisfying. Each video is accompanied by assorted moaning and lewd sounds. They’re kind of hot, and microphone “puffs” are few. However, the distinct lack of dialogue is off-putting. It makes the protagonists seem less like lovers, and more like robots.

Visuals: published September 12th, 2021 (3/5★)

There is no titlescreen — it’s straight into the action! The side-menu (on the left) functions as the main-menu. From the “Gallery”, you may view individual, static CGs or play the “slideshow” (cycling onto the next image every three seconds). You may choose to “download” images from the Gallery; they are saved as 3840 by 2160 PNGs in your “Pictures” folder. This is a cool feature, but the images seem to have been heavily compressed at some point; they’re riddled with JPEG artifacts. Using “Theatere” mode, you’re able to play unlocked movie “parts” without stopping. Theater mode also offers the ability to skip ahead (or backward) by ten seconds. For some bizarre reason, you’re not allowed to control the video outside of the Theatere. From the “Options” menu, you may adjust audio and display preferences. Overall, the user-interface is below average. Navigation is a matter of guessing “what does what”.

As a 3D artist myself, I’m in a position to provide overly-specific criticism. An artist called “Futanarica” is responsible for most, if not all lewd content within From Paris with Love: Passion with view.

Clipping and stretching are rampant throughout the film. While some clipping is expected, good artists hide clipping (or avoid it all together using advanced techniques). I can understand clashing night gowns, but when you have tongues cutting through cheeks that’s when I have to draw the line! I spotted some awful polygon stretching around genitalia; this is likely another limitation of the models, but I don’t think Futanarica even tried.

I noticed a selection of objects that flickered uncontrollably. This is most likely due to a combination of texture reflectivity, render time, and hard lighting. When you don’t soften your light sources, you wind up with harsh reflections and shadows. When you don’t spend enough time rendering an image, lighting issues are aggravated — producing flickering and visual aberrations.

Lory and Ariana move as though gravity doesn’t apply to them. If Futanarica were to study real porn, they would have probably figured out how to convincingly pose humans. People kinda weigh a lot, so they need to maintain balance by holding onto surfaces. Lory and Ariana act as though they’re weightless, their feet leaving the floor as they bang away. If I had to guess, Futanarica probably used premade animations and didn’t bother to adjust them for the scene.

NSFW18 Games, I hope you didn’t pay too much for this guy.

Verdict: published September 12th, 2021 (2/5★)

I have mixed feelings about this game (but mostly bad ones). The artwork and gameplay aren’t great, but the animation is “usable”. Futa/female content is hard to come by — sometimes, you have to take what you can get. The “gameplay” isn’t innovative When you boot the application, NSFW18 Games proudly claims “This game is the first futanari game with a short movie (20 min) included in it!” Unfortunately, I have to call “bullshit”. Puppetmaster’s Sensual Adventures – Episode 5 offers a twenty-four minute, fully animated video with futas. From Paris with Love: Passion with view doesn’t hold a candle to Puppetmaster’s work, but it’s also a quarter of the price. I wish From Paris with Love: Passion with view was an interactive offering (I’m sorry but quizzes don’t count). While Puppermaster’s films offer branching scenes that allow the player to choose between characters or positions. The great thing about software is that you’re able to provide player agency — without worthwhile and engaging interactivity, you’re basically offering a strictly worse alternative to PornHub. If you’re a fan of futa/lesbian content, you may get a kick out of this title (but I’d wait for a sale).
