Got it last week. I'm on day 6. It's fantastic IMO. People who bitch Square is all about whoring FF out really need to shut up and play it. It has fantastic gameplay, cool visuals and a awesome soundtrack. I approve of this game a whole bunch.

But did Squar do anything new with the game?

There are a bunch of great games out there Squar has done but they hardly ever try anything new in terms of gameplay, interactivity, or story. Is there anything that sets this game apart?

From what I've seen it looks pretty entertaining and I haven't heard any negative feedback from the people I know playing it. I'll probably give it a shot fairly soon.

Actually...yes. This game has a combat system that's never been done before, having two characters on each screen fight at the same time, one done solely with the Dpad and the other with the stylus. What's odd is that it works pretty well.

The story is sort of an inflective jab at SE themselves. They're notorious for stocking their games with emo characters who are terribly unlikable due to their crappy personality (and yet, adolencent fangirls still love them because they are...ahem..."teh sexors" and the potential yaoi scenario). TWEWY is similar, but the main character is so emo and so unlikable it becomes a running gag throughout the game until the main character himself realizes how much of a douchebag he's being.

So yeah, worth a purchase. Go get it.

Couldn't have said it better myself :3

I love the music for this. After buying it I went on a mad hunt to find the soundtrack. >w< Very nice. It's even better if you have headphone's plugged in while playing.

This game is incredibly bizarre. I can't say I've played anything else like it... and I love it. Awesome soundtrack too.

It really is a good game. I admit that I first picked it up because I was like "Ooooh! SE's cell art~~" and then I read the back and it sounded cool. When I started to play it it just got even COOLER. It's definitely worth it. And now I'm broke because I bought it. ^^;;;

I got it... well, cause it's Square and people said it won at life.

I'm about eh.. an hour in and the gameplay is really cool. And the plot so far is innovative. =3 I love the whole "Gamer trapped by the game" motif in stuff like that.

I love the game so far. x3

this game is so fun! i'm currently on Beat, Day 1. =D I've never seen art like this in any other game, the hp system is quite interesting, the fighting system quite customizabe, which I like, and the characters are well developed.

Played it, beat it, loved it. It's amazing x3 But that's just my opinion. The story is really different from anything I've ever played, and the fact that it's set in a modern day setting is really cool. This is also one of those rare games where you actually see true character development and it seems natural.

Kinda reminiscent of .hack//GU where Haseo starts off hating everyone then by the end cares for just about everybody xD

And the battle system takes a while to get used too but when you do it kicks ass. And there's replay value!!

For anyone that's played the game xD http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1515832/

I played it and beat it. I am currently trying to collect everything because I'm weird and like to complete everything in a game (it takes forever to master each pin. I just do that every time I'm on the bus...)

The game was really interesting and fun. I really enjoyed the dual character battles because it forces you to look at both screens of the DS at the same time. Almost all DS games make it so you only really focus on one screen and occasionally look at the other. I kept moving my eyes back and forth to make sure I don't lose HP because I was only paying to one screen. Also, I like the way trends actually effect the game so it ties in with your personal strategy.

Does anyone have problems using some of the pins? Whenever there's a lot of Noise, I can't use any of the ones where it says to draw a circle and then something happens. I can do the others ones though. I almost never use the obstacle-related ones. Those seems worthless to me.

Storyline wise it was not exactly what I expected. A good chunk of the time, I kinda figured out what was going to happen or at least had a good hunch.
There were a few other times I didn't guess like *WARNING spoiler!: Joshua actually being the Conductor dude. I knew he had powers and such but I didn't see that one. I was suspicious that he was a higher up bad guy but not the Conductor himself.
*End spoiler*

Overall, I enjoyed the game.
My favorite character is Joshua. The way he thinks and how he acts around Neku is really great, sometimes pretty funny.

OK, someone explain the plot for me. I've seen the movies on the website, but I'm not totally sure what's going on.
