So, I'm finally getting a chance to play this after hearing a ton about it. I haven't been playing that long, but I'm pretty impressed thus far. The setting is pretty awesome, as well as the battle system. I'm still getting a little use to the controls though. One interesting thing is how fashion forward this game is. The whole game is about insane fashions that only Japan could come up with. Everything has a modern feel. Now, I'm not a terribly huge fan of Tetsuya Nomura's story ideas, but his designs are neat and clean which I enjoy. Plus the whole dedication to street life (like grafitti and the fashion and all that jazz) appeals to me as well. I'm having a ton of fun with this. At this moment in time, I'd give it a 4 out of 5. But I may change that as I progress. I'll probably update this mini review.
Some of it even reminds me of Donnie Darko.
