I heard this game was good, and thankfully, I've managed to acquire sufficient funds shortly after its release to purchase it - went with the digital copy off PSN which is paired with the "Military Pack" DLC for week one customers.
I've spent several hours on the game so far - and it's highly avant-garde in every single respect. Amazing artwork, with a unique story - there's a serene atmosphere, yet still some mysterious aspects. The heroine's character design is lovely - and she gets through both story missions, as well as more lighthearted, or rewarding, side-stories.
Of course you'd have to finish the main story to win the game, through the game allows you to take your pace towards it - for example, after I finish a story mission, I could just free-roam, or I can go do some extra stuff, missions, gather info, whatever. The optional tasks are diverse and useful if completed.
The game guides you along very well - it acquaints you with tasks just enough so you learn how to do it, yet it doesn't keep babying you beyond that. It also doesn't just drop you somewhere and have you figure out what to do - it's as if the game somehow checks to see how well or often you complete something and depending on that, it determines whether to provide you further instruction or not.
Aside from her looks, the heroine's personality is also very cute - and best of all, she has a neko companion with her who aides her.
I'm certainly having fun with this game - going to post more as I progress.
