Got the game yesterday (and Bit trip complete, and Metal gear solid 3D. So, good times!). I got the email, so I guess I was in time for the coins? I hope so!

Anyway, played the first tower. Short, lineair, easy (but it's the first level of course). Can't fight with the chain yet. Though fun so far!
However, the reviewers are right: Graphically it's terribly weak! Xenoblade chronicles and The last story look a lot better. But I guess I can live with that!

I've got good impressions of the game so far (having beaten the first tower). The controls are a bit hard to get used to (like The Last Story, but less so), but I can get by with sword slashes and chain yanks at the moment.

During the first master, I was having trouble increasing the tension of the chain - are you supposed to just walk backwards away from the monster to raise the tension bar before whipping it away?

But going back to what I think of the game, it looks like a nice little game - linear, so you have a definite target to work towards, with RPG mechanics so you can grow as you play with a versatile combat system. I took to dodging quite easily - it looks like it's going to be a useful technique throughout the game.

The graphics struck me as being slightly rough as early as the title screen, and the voice acting is fairly low rate, but neither of those would really ruin the game for me. I'm glad to hear there are multiple endings and secrets too.

you can hold C as well to pull the chain. and yes, dodging is an essential move.

i really like the voice acting, and the graphics aren't bad, just the blurry textures.

@vonseux,

I made it sound a bit silly, but what I meant was that I couldn't do much with the chain. So I assumed that things like swinging your foes around or throwing enemies came later. The thing is, nothing gets explained. The tutorials are all to be found in the menu. Now I know how to throw enemies and how to swing enemies around. Though I still have get to grips with the controls. Swinging would have been more fun with the wiimote though. I play with the wiimote and nunchuck by the way!

As for the voice-acting: While some people complain about it, I think it isn't that bad. Especially the voice of Mavda is good!

"During the first master, I was having trouble increasing the tension of the chain"

You mean shooting your chain once, and then drain the enemy? Like they show on youtube? I couldn't do it either. So I did shoot and tear, shoot and tear, etc untill the boss was defeated. I know, that's not the way it should be done!

"I think what makes good gameplay is being able to do things different ways"

I agree. Though the way I did beat the first boss was a little bit lame. Now I know how I have to do it: Shoot the chain, then press and hold c. That way you can damage the boss as long as the chain is connected to the target. And when the meter is full you can tear to inflict massive damage (I sound like the "enemy crab guy" now, If you know what I mean!).

"the 5x combos are pretty effetive!"

I haven't tried that out yet. By the way: The way Xenoblade chronicles and The last story handle tutorials (there they appear on screen automatically when there is something new to teach) isn't annoying at all.

So far I have finished the first 3 towers, and it's a pretty fun game! The third boss already was quite challenging to me!

As the reviewers said the game sometimes gives you very cumbersome views. And because of this I sometimes can't hit the target with my chain. This happened for example when I wanted to beat the lance-wielding enemy in the third tower. But a fun game nonetheless!!

I just got the best ending and settled for that.
I was about to go for the locked rooms, but I've got a lot of other vidya to play.

Liking this game more and more was worried it'd be too much of a hack and slash kind of game; but the Zelda'esque puzzles really help make it more enjoyable not to mention the boss battles; at first it felt more like a 6/10 kinda game for me but might be nearer to 8/10 now at about the half way point.

Awesome poster!

This game was a real experience, some frustrating gameplay at times, but it felt new and the challenge was real. Also some of the best bosses i've ever fought in any game. Such a gritty, rewarding game to finish.
