Admittedly I would not have liked to pay full price for this game, but at 17.99 I think it is more than acceptable.
The main issue that seems to crop up is the length, I completed this in three and a half hours on casual. I did not feel short changed by this, as I enjoyed it that much I started again instantly on hard mode (which I already know will take longer to get through).
It looks fantastic, this is no cheaply made rush job. Lovely graphics in game and during cut scenes, great character designs.
You will no doubt be more inclined to like this game if, like me, you love Japanese culture, anime, manga, cyberpunk and all the rest of it as this is clearly a fully Japanese creation.
I have read of people criticising the setting, saying that it is all too similar. Please bear in mind that the game is set solely on a space colony, that in reality would follow some sort of stylistic continuity! Wasn't a problem for me, there was enough subtle variation to keep me pacified, plus I was mostly too busy being engrossed in a chaotic battle to notice!
Not to give away any spoilers but a sequel is surely on the cards, I hope so.
