This is a pretty good game, Level-5 come through again. I think by this point Level-5 are one of my favourite developers of all time. So yes, if you like games with a deep story and not a lot of gameplay except the odd battle every now and again, this is for you!

At first this didn't interest me, but since I've heard nothing but good things I'm definitely going to try it.

Liberation Maiden was a great little game, while it lasted; and i've been looking for an unusual handheld RPG. When i eventually find somewhere that stocks elusive e-point cards this is top of the list.
