I freaking LOVE this game omg! This is good enough to be released on a handheld console like the DS no joke.

I am currently at the second map and I can't wait to see what happens next in the storyline.

As a reviewer below me said: Its like an awesome visual novel with an added shooter into it.

Seriously, it has to be of the BEST games I have ever played on Newgrounds (and I've played quite a few of them, just check out my profile lol!).

You should seriously look into getting this ported to a game system :D

Amazing

That was an beautifully made game, the art, the combat, the upgrading, the music and the story. It all fit together nicely, though some of the story and talking were rather long for my liking, especially in the beginning.
I liked how you could upgrade you ship and level up in your own way, not being restricted to one type of battle. As well as the seemingly endless supply of upgrades on hand.
The music was very fitting and well made as well as helping to fit the atmosphere and improve the impact of certain scenes.

The only fault I can see in this game is in your Author Comments, saying that it is a Dating Sim. I did not see this as much of a Dating sim, as you could never ask user choice questions to romantic interest, or give gifts or find out how far in a relationship you were with someone.
The main character kinda seemed to be a "playa" as whenever I hung out with the female characters he seemed to get infatuated with all of them. Though this doesn't hinder the game that much, I wouldn't give it the description or genre of a Dating Sim.

Overall, this was an amazing game with very little faults. A good Long game, especially if your not looking for a 10min game.
10/10

Epic.

Ill start off with the only thing not awesome about it i guess, the in-battle graphics and stuff wasnt super awesome, not bad, but nothing really that outstanding.

Now with the other stuff: the upgrade system was nice, only thing i woulda liked in addition is if i could always somehow upgrade stuff i had ;-; (didnt even see a wave cannon thingy till about 4 levels after deadeye researched it) but it was still a great upgrade system for a flash game

The story was... just... mind-blowingly awesome. In my opinion, this rivals and may beat the epic battle fantasy series (person to person opinion of course, i personally couldnt say which i like better) for the best story for any flash game out there, all the characters were great, lots of plot twists and surprises; the story is probly what kept me hooked on to this game, and the ending was enjoyable.

So... suggestions from me would include... well, better graphics in the game if possible, maybe tweak the upgrading system a little, to make it so you can upgrade some weapons more easily so you dont have to rely on chancing by them which is a little bit of a problem late game (although it does add a fairly unique aspect to the game), the module system is a nice feature though, liked it cause it kept people from just buying a billion of them and becoming practically invulnerable. Also the cafe thing was a nice feature but i might have liked to have had a little control in the conversations where it wouldnt directly interfere with the plot, since the description says dating sim.

So, without further adieu,
MOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRR.

Breathtaking

Starwish is easily the best and most finished flash game I've ever played. The shooter part alone could make for selling, but with the story which like I have not seen since Baldur's Gate the game simply makes my body ache and my heart beat uncontrollably.
At first, I wanted to be able to make more decisions, to be able to change the story. Later on, I would hope that I didn't have to choose sides in a war that had been going on for an eternity. I actually can't believe that a certain person died. I won't tell you who, but until the end I still expecting her to come back.

The girls in the game, as opposed to dating sims, have own personalities and are all quite lovable. The same goes for male characters.

I know it's silly to say this, but some of the philosophy in this game (particularly the ending) influenced me to change my life for the better >.>

Frankly, I know I'm going to play this game again. Thank you for making this, keep it up.
