I'd say it's worth $15. I bailed out after Chapter 4. I liked some things about it, but the combat was too repetitive for me. It didn't help that I wasn't particularly good at it, so battles took me a long time. There's basically only one attack button but by varying the rhythm you get different combos. I could never quite get the hang of it. Also, if you die you resurrect yourself by button-mashing so I was never really forced to get any better at it. I thought the platforming parts were pretty fun. The graphics are certainly unique and interesting and the story concept is intriguing. The game play just wasn't interesting enough for me to want to keep going.
