Pros and Cons
- many HD videos
- bonus sites with similar themes
- easy to navigate
- nonexclusive content
- not all scenes have English subtitles
- many scenes have censored genitals
I've had to review quite a few hentai sites during my career and I have to say that often they're a disappointment. The last time around I had mixed feelings about 3D Hentai Video. This time, though, my opinion is more easily formed.
Even though updates are often just a few times a month, 3DHentaiVideo has grown in size to bring you 882 videos, which is a very decent amount and, unlike some sites, you won't simply see scene after scene from the same DVD - there's quite a bit of variety here, with lots of bad schoolgirls, corrupting teachers, misbehaving maids and naughty nurses in hardcore XXX scenes.
However, the last time around, most of these flicks were good in quality and some even came in HD. That's no longer the case, though, because you can only count on average-quality playback for the most part. Some are below average and others are good. They used to come in a variety of formats, but now even the oldest scenes have been reformatted into MP4s.
You can rate the scenes, sort by title, rating and popularity, and post comments. It was in the comment sections that I noticed some members complaining about something that, in actuality, demonstrates the purity of the content here. These hentai scenes come from DVDs imported from Japan, so the genitalia is often pixelated. You can actually filter for censored or uncensored scenes, though.
I should also mention that many videos don't have any English dubbing or subtitles. Personally, I like that I'm getting hentai straight from the source and censoring doesn't really interfere with my getting off - I can add my own cumshot to the buckets of jizz in many of the scenes. All the same, you can filter your view to show you flicks in English or Japanese as well as movies with subtitles in either of those languages.
There aren't any pictures and you'll no longer see the DVD box covers or the sets of vid caps. Still, thanks to the one large thumbnail and four smaller ones labeling each scene, you'll notice that some flicks appear to be computer-generated 3D and almost look like live-action footage. Others simply use drawing and animation techniques that add depth to the flat images, which makes them appear more cartoonish.
A half-dozen bonus sites are included with your membership and they pretty much all follow the same theme, like on Hentai Video World, Hentai Niches and Hentai Pics World, so you're not just getting a bunch of unrelated extras. In general, though, I think you'll notice a decline in quality on the various sites.
Now although it's a disappointment to see the quality on a site diminish, let's be honest and face the fact that with animated scenes the stats don't really need to be super high for the footage to look decent on screen. So, in the end, if you're a true fan of the genre, 3D Hentai Video is still worth checking out despite being a little less impressive this time around.
