All I say on this review can be applied as much to Heileen 2 as to 3, so I'm reviewing them together.

Once more a visual novel that disappoints. I was really excited about playing Heileen 3 (I got Heileen 2 afterwards from... somewhere, I forget, but it was free so I was like, whatever, cards!, and tried it for a while anyway in case it was good), even though I knew little about it. And then I played it and cried. :'(
No, I kid. XD I played it and rolled my eyes a lot, though.

It's a romance/dating sim/VN/princess maker type of game all mashed up into one, so basically the whole point of it is to end the game with one of the boy/girl options (or none, I guess, as I got none lol) plus with one major profession...
On the upside, you playing a girl who can actually date a girl is kinda cool, so there's that. The general idea of it being based with tarot cards and such is good, basically the underlying idea of the whole game is pretty decent, but the actual way it's been carried on is not.
There's a sort of story there in the back, something about ships, and shipwrecks, and making your way into the world, that in the end amounts to nothing because Heileen has ice cubes for brains and they melt in the heat.

The main character, Heileen, is one annoying, bratty little Mary Sue. For some reason she keeps thinking even the guy I have a 0 points "relationship" with is hot. Like, if I'm cultivating x and y relationships and not at all, z, why would you think z is hot? Ugh. I understand scripting a game is hard, but seriously, since you don't know what relationships people will cultivate, why would you hardcode that you think that really annoying guy is hot even at 0 points?

Heileen isn't the only one who suffers from being annoying. Almost every single character in this thing is. I only liked one of them, and he was still annoying to an extent.

The game contradicts itself constantly. Heileen 2 particularly seems to suffer from odd inverted choices. By which I mean logic will tell you answer x is virtuous and y is greedy, and yet when you choose answer x was greed and y virtue, and totally illogical.
Which, on a side rant, totally reminds me of that point in Shaolin school over in Age of Wushu, when I was given the choice between poisoning a betrayer to find out something or "being kind", whereas being "kind" turned out to be to beat him up to a pulp. lol? Okay... if you call that kinder... moving along...

The options we're given on Heileen 3 are ridiculous (not that it wasn't to be expected from a group of pirates that not only save these random people and not lock them up, but are actually nice to them, give them things for free, help them, and deliberately avoid going after ships as is their livelyhood because gasp, Heileen might be offended/surprised/think badly of a bunch of pirates). Seriously. Did I mention these guys are supposed to be pirates? How are they supposed to make their living? ::)

Someone over at steam reviewed Heileen 3 and said 3 of 4 of the guys on it are jerks: I totally agree. And the 4th one seems to be completely undecided on whether he wants to be a jerk or normal, because at times he's one, at times the other.
Even tho I usually don't go for girl on girl, I tried to cultivate one girl and one guy relationship because all other guys were creeeeepyyyyyyy.

Out of the girl characters the one that annoyed me the most (after Heileen herself, that is) was the 'dancer', because she was also very pushy and got super disappointed whenever she didn't get her way. If you want to find anything good to the game is that they have ridiculously skimpy outfits every now and again, but they aren't even that exciting. Sorry guys. :P

The professions are ridiculous. How come lust + dancing = dancer? Why do I have to be lusty to be a dancer? Just because the dancer girl is? No thanks.

The attributes modify nothing in my relationship attempts and only give boosts if I actually try to do something with the person.... but only gives boost to the attribute if I choose the right person, and unless there's an event, I get no boost to the relationship. You'd think spending time together would +1 the relationship, or +0.5 it at least.
Not to mention you don't have that much time to do things with others since you keep needing to level up basic skills too much.

Basically I finished only Heileen 3, abandoned 2 after I realized it was somehow worse than 3, and I only played to one ending of 3 because I just couldn't care less for anything or anyone in it...

Why yes, I do judge VNs at a completely higher standard than other games, because they're supposed to entertain with their story, not want to make you jump off a bridge.

Well let's see here Heileen 2. It’s uh much longer than the first one. There are way more endings and many more things that affect the outcome of your story. The game starts the same no matter what ending you got in the first game so that was a bit disheartening. Any way I felt this one did fill in some gaps about the character’s past like Otto and Lora what happened with Heileen’s parents. I would say its okay although I still hate Heileen as a character. Also this one seemed to drag on for bit.

First off my time is short becasue I played the game a couple years ago and just reninstalled it to unlock the steam achievements. When I played it the game was not voiced, and I have not played Heileen 1 or Heileen 3. I have both, but I was waiting for them to get on Steam.
Honestly this is not the best game out by WinterWolves (see Loren Amazon Princess or Planet Stronghold), but I like o support English Visual Novels. I didn't play Heileen 1 so I do not know how the two games connect. Just from playing the second one it seems almost as if Heileen 2 is more of a set up for Heileen 3. The art is good and the background music was good. This one is not a dating sim. It is more about your relationship with Robert and Ebele (? I can't remember the girls name). There is some background on Heileen through various events. The game also has a sin and virtue system, so there is a ending for each virtue, each sin, and a limbo ending. Each ending is very different and they range from getting stuck on the island to becoming a pirate. Pretty close to the end of the game you are inroduced to the pirates, Morgan, Juliet, and their crew, who are featured in the next game. Overall the game is okay, and I would get it if you like the Heileen series or WinterWolves games in general.

This game is rather full of contradictions.

I get the feeling that whom'ever wrote the story didnt proof read it at all, and there are many obvious good anwsers that get turned on their head and become bad ones in this game.
The english is also rather scurvy side, one exaple of this is one of locations descriptions, they wrote: "in an Island" not "on an Island", "on the red mark" (in the middle of the water) not "Near the red mark"

Also i question the morals of whom'ever wrote this: I just went trough a Charity/greed event, with 2 choises do nothing or warn your uncle about the impending theft.
I naturally chose to warn my uncle as someone how knows that it is wrong to steal, and the game promtly awarded me with the Greed outcome. I my mind that had nothing to do with greed, Untill the game decided to tell me that there was a large diamond in my uncles posession, wich came after you chose your response.

I enjoyed this more than the first Heileen installment, but I still cannot recommend it.

The Tarot cards brought some more choices into the mix, but personally I would not want to replay to get all the endings. The voice acting is pretty bad, after two lines of it I switched the voice over audio off.
