"I know I know i can't pronounce that title either. Solid hack and slash, though very short its highly replayable. Nice upgrade system for progression."

I love it, because it is a quintessential action game and nothing else whatsoever to annoy a person who wants to play a solid, challenging, learnable game. Just make absolutely sure you're playing on Hard.

There's the core mechanic (a DMC-style system). It's put to use. There's nothing else - no levels, no puzzles, no platforming. Every now and then there's a boss battle. No bells and whistles, perhaps 20 seconds ofcutscenes.The system is tight, controls are very tight, and the whole thing's quite adequately challenging. The whole affair is so tightly put together that, although there's exactly one challenge to the whole game, it never gets repetitive - simply playing and challenging yourself to get good and beat it is both the incentive and reward for playing.

Also, she keeps flashing 'em.

(Some people write that it's a button-masher. That it is the opposite of truth.)

If you have seen or heard about this game, then it was most likely a "panty-shot". Even though the game has by far more to offer ... than panties. It has a really really hard to learn combat system. Perfect timing is essential to survive in this game. It also has an upgrade system and you want to upgrade health first, Trust me! Getting started with the game is hard, because it doesn't explain you that much. You have to try everything on your own and learn how it works. If you are done with learning, you will see how you block attacks from enemies. How you are beating a large amount of enemies with no problems, and then the game starts to show you all of its potential and fun. It is one of those games: "Easy to learn but very hard to master".

Suffers a crippling lack of depth, variety, & replay value // A bit of fun, but not enough to justify the purchase

*A gamepad is HIGHLY recommended for this title

+ Saves and upgrades can be accessed and applied at any time in the arena, and effects are immediately applied
+ As upgrades are unlocked, combat becomes drastically more fluid and cinematic
+ In stark contrast to mobs that populate the waves of a given stage, boss fights are actually quite challenging, and are noticeably skill-dependant
+ Character models are rendered with plenty of detail and look generally adequate
+ Japanese voice-acting is well-done; feels very organic
+ Combat is generally very fun, fast-paced, and visually striking

- Camera is sub-par and operates unreliably
- Boring and uninspired environment and audio design
- Game quickly becomes repetitive and a chore to slog through; this is largely because each level offers little more than the last, and it essentially boils down to 'hack, slash, rinse, repeat' with nothing to break up the pace or keep one interested
- The game suffers an achievement bug; Steam achievements that have been unlocked during gameplay will remain locked in the Steam application until the game is closed (this is a problem because they will all share an idential time-stamp)*
- Plot is underdeveloped to the point that it may as well have not been included; utterly forgettable
- Enemy mobs are cripplingly generic and suffer from lack of variety; each stage is essentially a massive copy/paste of the previous stage, and 'upgraded mobs' share the same design with a different color scheme and slightly higher base stats
- Extremely short campaign (1-2 hours) and little else in the way of replay value, save for a drive to unlock all achievements, and a narrow selection of unlockable outfits

*While this may not affect everyone, a quick glance at the forums indicates that others are experiencing this issue
