Having got this game free with my PSP, as a last resort. I wasnt expecting much play time from it and thought I would stick to the likes on Monster Hunter or Tomb Raider but I was completely wrong.
The card based gameplay is a new one to me, and I was skeptical as whether it would work or not. I actually fell in love with the new type of gameplay, rather than just another generic action game. The new system has a slight learning curve but its worth surpassing this, after a few hours you'll be selecting cards and formulating guard killing strategies with ease.
The graphics are very good for a handheld, and apart from a tiny bit of slowdown when everything starts exploding there are no complaints from that sector. The sound effects and musical score are also top notch.
The story follows the Konami convention of being really far fetched and hard to follow, this particular game involves evil puppets and a mysterious entity named FAR.
8/10. Worth the play, guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours.
