For eroge recommendations, I +1 Crescendo wholeheartedly. Easily one of the best visual novels I've played, period. Eroge or otherwise. The writing is absolutely gorgeous. Sure, some girls' storylines are more compelling than others, but even the most straightforward one is well done. Fantastic game, highly recommended to anyone who likes visual novels. If I were allowed to review Crescendo for RPGFan, I'd give it an Editor's Choice stamp.
