Gibo: Stepmother's Sin
Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 07/21/2004

Description:
You are Yusuke. When you were a boy, you saw your mother having sex with another man -- which eventually caused your parents to divorce. You've never really recovered from witnessing your mother's sin, and so many years later you remain cold and skeptical when your father remarries. A gorgeous woman named Misako is your new stepmother, and she'll be living with you from now on... along with her teenage daughter Shiina. Can you ever find it in your heart to accept her as your mother? Or perhaps she'd be more fitting as your lover?

Review:
If the mere thought of incest turns you off, I suggest you forget about Gibo - Stepmother's Sin as early as now. For starters, the three girls available for your screwing pleasure are all family: Misako, your attractive new stepmother; Shiina, your unsuspecting stepsister; and Mio, your perpetually horny cousin. As the story goes, you can end up with one, two, or even all three of them depending on the choices you make.

Basically, Misako and Shiina move in your luxury condominium so that you can live together as a family. Being the psychologically damaged and rather perverted young man that you are, you start entertaining impure thoughts about your new family members the moment you lay eyes on them. Your cousin Mio, who's more or less your female equivalent, is more than happy to help you realize your dirty fantasies. Gibo is the usual multi-path bishoujo game with a twist: there's a love bar and a lewd bar affixed on the dialogue box, representing your feelings for Misako. These bars grow with the decisions you make. The ending you get is dependent on the proportions of love and lewdness you have by the time you reach the final point. The more love you have, the more positive and uh... "happy" the conclusion. Consequently, a longer lewd bar yields a darker ending.

Gibo has a total of fourteen endings, half of them good and half of them bad. I initially got a funny bad ending wherein Misako leaves Yusuke because his penis is too big, so getting all the good endings and CGs can be considered quite tricky. Even if we put the incest aside, there's really no normal storyline in Gibo. There's bound to be some very hardcore and perverse activities in every path, ranging from exhibitionism, role-playing, S&M, rape, gang bangs, induced lactation... variety is one thing Gibo certainly does not lack. I even got the much coveted "secret" ending; it's just too bad I didn't quite understand it.

The artwork is excellent. It took some time for me to get used to the character designs since the way the eyes were drawn tended to overpower the whole face, but in general this style worked well for both Misako and Mio. Even Yusuke looked pretty good in the few scenes that showed his face. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for Shiina, who has got to be one of the worst-looking girls I've seen in a bishoujo game. Sex is depicted very graphically down to every last bodily secretion. Original Japanese voices combined with background music that was unobtrusive and fitting complemented the game nicely.

While Gibo can be considered a dark-themed game, it does have a far more substantial plot and a higher level of challenge compared to "gotta-rape-'em-all" games like "Virgin Roster", "Tsuki", and "Sensei 2". I'm not a fan of incest myself but Gibo is undoubtedly a quality bishoujo game with great replay value and an ample supply of sex in many different flavors.

Miscellanies:
There is a hentai anime version of Gibo entitled "Stepmother's Sin".
