Description:
You are Takuya Aihara, just an average guy. You go to school, you live with your dad, stepmom, and stepsister... there's nothing really special about your life. Things change when you accidentally spill a mysterious liquid on yourself in chemistry lab. Suddenly, you're a girl. A very well-endowed and hot-blooded girl. You're no longer unnoticed, and it seems that just about everyone wants your luscious new body! Whether you can change back into your male self is all in your hands...

Review:
Generally light-hearted and moderately comical, Xchange is a rather scintillating little package. It gives players a chance to play both male and female lead in one story.

As the male Takuya, life is pretty ordinary. You're just one of the hundreds of students in school, trudging along the halls day after day. But as the female Takuya emerges, things take a 360-degree turn... can't really say if it's for the better or for the worse. It would seem as if female Takuya is too popular for her own good. Teachers want her, classmates want her... heck, even strangers on the bus want her!

The choices you make will determine how Takuya's life will turn out. If you're not careful, Takuya can become a scandalous nymphomaniac who won't ever revert to his original self. There are several endings you can get, and only two of them are real endings. I was able to get all the endings and CGs in one sitting, which should tell you something about the game's challenge level and length. Xchange is not a pain to re-play because of its swift pacing (meaning you won't get bored to tears by overly long dialogues) and the simply wonderful non-stop option. Non-stop mode lets you rush through the story and brings you to the decision points right away. The game interface is intuitive and user-friendly, although not as refined as Peach Princess' "Snow Drop".

Crisp and eye-poppingly vibrant, Xchange's artwork is terrific to say the least. It certainly won the open-mouthed admiration of the people around me. I only have one problem with it -- everybody has more or less the same facial features... only the hair differs! The nudity and sexual content are extremely graphic. Absolutely nothing is left to your imagination, and all the erotic activities are shown in full uncensored detail. This is one of the most explicit titles I've played, and I'm sure it will please anybody's raging hormones.

With its gender-bending storyline and arresting visuals, Xchange promises something fresh and unique for gamers. The more jaded set may find it too easy though.

Miscellanies:
Game extras include a CG gallery and a music gallery. The Xchange game CD also has a lot of nice pics from other Peach Princess titles.
