Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity is a unique game for sure. If you're looking for an enjoyable and charming journey with a fun mixture of gameplay mechanics then you can't go wrong by giving it a download.

Still, I genuinely enjoyed my time with Scarlet Curiosity, and it has piqued my interest in visiting other Touhou games. The game is fairly short, and it could definitely use much more variation, but for the relatively low price — one third of the typical cost of a new PlayStation 4 game — you're getting a satisfying experience. Just don't anticipate anything "epic"; keep your expectations reasonable.
The Game Hoard (Jun 18, 2020)
The characters and world of Touhou are transposed into a hack and slash RPG well enough with Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, but is too dependent on the mildly satisfying rhythm of repetitive combat to carry the experience. It dishes out the abilities and treasure rewards often enough to keep you moving along and the level designs, bosses, and platforming segments break things up before the action can ever truly settle into the player’s mind as too basic to enjoy, but unless you’re coming to the game just to see your favorite Touhou girls facing off against each other in a different context, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity is going to feel like just a decent way to waste some time rather than a deep or overly challenging RPG.
