Overall? I guess it's OK.

Alright, long review alert coming up. I have always loved games that involve anything paranormal. I have always loved games a bit novel-based. So when I discovered that this game existed out there, I went ahead and bought it with high expectations. And I'd like to say...that I am slightly disappointed with it. Now we should all know that every game has its high points and low points, and we'd be naïve to think otherwise. It just so happens that this one is pretty even with both points. Be forewarned that it is a VERY HEAVY dialogue-based game. About 85% of the time you'll be reading dialogue with a few Japanese voice acting lines thrown in here and there, so if that's not your shtick, you will not like this game. However, the characters that are introduced have their own little quirks to them, and that makes it more enjoyable. Think of it as you're more observing what everyone else is doing rather than actively getting too involved. And speaking of interacting with others, the way you interact is probably one of the worst things I have seen in a video game. So you have these two wheels that appear once someone starts a conversation with you. I had no idea what these did, since the game does absolutely nothing to give you a guide as to how to use them, so I just spammed random buttons and got really confused when people started getting weirded out by me. Turns out that the first wheel is, apparently, your emotion towards the situation/question, I guess(?). The second wheel is your senses (touch, smell, etc.). It's an interesting concept, but in my opinion it fails in this situation, because every time I have to "pick an option", it seems like it turns out like I'm making an observation of the environment rather than helping/hurting the situation. And then there's fighting the ghosts. Think of it as an RPG/turn based strategy kind of fight that is a small fraction of the gameplay itself. You have limited items that you can place in the area, and you can't go over the amount that you're being commissioned when buying items. (Oh, and you're able to break items in the enclosed space you're fighting in, so be careful about those, too.) Although frustrating trying to figure out how to go about fighting the ghost and guessing where in the blazes it's at while trying to cause as little damage to the area as possible, it is a rather fun experience overall. And finishing off the ghost is satisfying as all-get-out! Then there's the art style of the game. Just about any other review I've seen praises the style, and I'm going to be with the majority of them. It is BEAUTIFUL. The characters are in 2-D, but the flow is marvelous for a novel-based game. The characters also fit their designs without being too over-the-top. So! Long story short: the characters are awesome, the style is awesome, the strategy part is difficult yet fun, and the "dialogue wheels" need to go bye-bye. Is it worth the price is it? I'd say wait for it to drop from the $40 to around half the price and save you some money. Would I recommend it? I would, but only if it's a friend or any other person that I know would enjoy this type of game enough to give it a chance.
