The protagonist.

A skilled warrior and pretty competent adventurer whose head is constantly filled with thoughts of sex, which makes him act solely on desire and instinct. In that sense, he’s the perfect star of an 18+ title.

Skills:Sex (Or so he claims)
Sill Plain
Rance’s XXXXX.

She’s a powerful mage, but in the four months Rance has owned her, he’s used her for endless housework, random tasks, and sex.

Her role during this job is to act as Rance’s assistant.

Skills:Housework, Magic
Millie Lincle
The girl who runs the weapon shop, "Lost Hope," in Leazas.

Quiet and not very assertive. She has no real interest in her business and isn’t all that good at dealing with customers, but she’s friends with Patty.

She’s attacked by ruffians every so often (including Rance), but she always seems to make it out okay somehow.

Patty the Summer
The girl who runs the beach-themed item shop, "Baltic," in Leazas. It’s an item shop, but it looks the perfect place to visit in the summer. It has shaved ice, but it’s an item shop. Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem to have any plans to pick one or the other.

She’s never been to an actual beach before, so it’s her dream to go one day.

Skills:Cooking (Noodles), Beach Volleyball
Yulan Mirage
A gorgeous gladiator who reigns as the unparalleled champion of the colosseum inside Leazas Castle. No one can avoid her special attack, "Mirage Sword."

Skills:Fighting a worthy opponent
Weakness:Fighting a boring opponent
Lia Parapara Leazas
The princess of the Kingdom of Leazas, which is the wealthiest nation in the world.

Her father, the king, is in good health, but she’s the real power behind the throne. Blessed with both brains and beauty that make her citizens implicitly trust her gentle smile. She hardly seems to have any flaws at all, in fact, but...

Great game and a bad one
If this were a review of Rance 01, it'd be a 5/5. If this were a review of Rance 02, it'd be a 2 or 3.

So, these are my first entries into the Rance series, and while I came in with the knowledge that Rance was the evil lovable anti-hero he is, I didn't expect how evil or how lovable he'd end up being. Rance is suprisingly cruel and awful, and yet Rance 01 is legitimately one of the funniest games I've ever played, in addition to being a really fun and unique RPG. There's hentai, I guess, but for me, the appeal is totally in the absolutely superb writing. And you know what? The music absolutely slapped too. I couldn't recommend Rance 01 enough to someone degenerate enough to actually make a MangaGamer account, so long as they're okay with Rance "enjoying" some women without their consent while calling himself the greatest hero to ever live.

Rance 02 is a profound disappointment after the absolutely fantastic entry of 01. It's worth noting that while 02 is, obviously, later in the timeline of the series, as a remake it came out 4 years before 01, and while its okay that it shows in the art and music, where it really hurts is that it shows in the gameplay and writing. While 01 was a ground-up remake of Rance I, Rance 02 (and 02 Kai) makes very, very little changes to Rance II. Whereas Rance 01 featured a unique gambling themed exploration and combat system, 02 just places you on a grid that you control with a compass in the top right of the screen and puts you into battles that feel like Persona 3 if you missed 60% of the time, basic attacks took SP, and the ai was actually as bad as people always say it is. This improves in the later part of the game where you're rich enough to just buy 100 ibeprofun (this game's healing potions), but before then it's rather dreadful playing as Rance. There are two short sections where you get to play as Sill, Rance's slave and resident best girl, and those are much, much better in terms of combat. This, of course, is traded for frustrating exploration puzzles that took much longer than was necessary in the second Sill section. 02's writing, as well, starts out terrible but slowly gets slightly less awful as time goes on. In Rance 01, much of the humor relies on the absurdity of how over-inflated Rance's sense of self is compared to his actions and the way it affects the people around him. 02 is frontloaded with a lot of really terrible meta-humor that misses after the first two or three jokes. As the game went on, I did laugh a few times, especially at the scene where Rance summons and H's a demon, (02's plot is so inconsequential this isn't even a spoiler lol), but the game starts you off on the worst possible foot and with how short it is, doesn't really have a lot of time to recover. If you're a coomer, 02 seems to have a lot more H scenes than 01, but if you, like me, enjoy the series beyond the hentai it's... not a great experience.

I want to stress that this is worth the price tag just for 01. 02 is treated like a little bonus for a reason, it sucks! And that's fine. I spent 60 altogether for 01+02, getting its hardcopy, and I don't feel like I overspent a cent. This is the FF Pixel Remaster of eroge, and damn if it isn't great.
Fine Game, Lacking Hentai
This is my first Rance game, and I haven't completed it yet to appreciate the entire story and game, but I've seen enough to understand the game's limitations.

You have to work really hard to get H scenes in this game, and there is no voice acting. I think sound effects have a squishing sound sometimes. The game is interesting, and fairly fun. I would buy this if you're looking for an RPG game with an emphasis on story and dialogue with some HCGs involved, but I don't think of it as much of a hentai game. Escalayer and Melty's Quest are much better H games than this.
