I've been pretty interested in this game since I enjoyed Recettear quite a lot. I've managed to find a smattering of opinions and previews (some dudes at Neogaf think it's a bit meh) but nothing from the press.

How're you guys finding it so far?

I saw a thread about someone being inquisitive about it being a hentai or not.

You can download a demo of it. It seems cool enough. There's loot (so far that I have seen) and a simple but kinda neat magic system. It does seem to get a little repetitive though, since you just run around all over the map trying to find every red dot and make it dead. I'm sure there's more to it, so I don't know. There's always a steam sale to send people over the edge.

I was hoping it was going to be loosely based on the South Korean film of the same name, but I was dissapointed.

The only significant downside is that you NEED a gamepad for this to reliably control the camera. On a positive note, it's one of the few games where mixing 2d sprites and 3d environments somehow doesn't look like crap (the sprites actually look pretty nice).

From what I saw from the demo and read around the internet, I would have to say that it is much simplier and more shallow than Reccetear. In Chantelise all you have to do is enter a dungeon, kill some monsters, go to the next level, kill more monsters and repeat until you find the boss. So unless you like dungeon crawling and hack & slashing, I should want to waste your money on other games.

It's kind of bland and repetitive. The camera is never in the right place. Makes me want to play Oath in Felghana again.
