It's Like Dating a Stripper... by Ursus April 4, 2006 - 9:13 AM PDT

This series is like dating a stripper: visually stunning, but completely empty from the neck up. Divergence Eve is too much fan and not enough service... of the plot and story, that is; allow me to explain.

It is true that the animation and digital FX for this series were well executed, that was no exaggeration. However, the combination of ridiculous anatomical proportions for ALL female characters -these ladies make a 36DD look like a mosquito bite- plus some truly minimal costume design (skimpy and provocative barely comes close to describing them) along with a healthy dose of partial or total nakedness, these short-comings can't hide the glaring lack of substance that is missing in this title.

Now please, don't mistake my position. There are few things that can compare with the loveliness of the female form (frankly, one of the good lord's better decisions), but while watching DE I found myself not liking breasts -biologically, genetically, this should NEVER happen. Ever. Perhaps my expectations may have been too high regarding the brains behind this skin-deep beauty, but all the in-your-face sexuality and fan-service can't hide the emptiness inside.

So, unless you fall victim to the "racoon syndrome" of the male homosapien, i.e. falling pray to shiny, beautiful objects or you don't have cable, save your money and your rental for another more worthy distraction.
