Ok right off the bat, if you don't like provocative dialog and images do everyone on Earth a favor and don't get this game. I'm glad a company has the guts to put a game out where not every character speaks properly and doesn't swear. I'd say about 70% of the game is oozing with some form of innuendo or racy comment. The game centers around the main characters relationship with the Heroine, who uses songs to aid the party giving bonuses such as attack power, resistances, etc. The twist is the more clothes she takes off (called Purging), the stronger her abilities. You build your relationship via dialog and Diving. Diving allows you to enter her mind and play through various events. As you complete the levels of her mind you gain additional abilities. Aside from the Heroine aspect, you can synthesize a variety of equipment from recipes you find. The battles are real time. As an added feature there is a Harmony Bar at the bottom. Ideally, you want to hit the attack button when the line crosses a high bar, which causes more damage. Sounds odd but it's actually really fun. Also, as you fight the Burst Meter builds as does the Heroines heartbeat. The Burst allows for a powerful attack, and the heartbeat allows for Purging. Unfortunately the game isn't very long even with level spamming and re-exploring areas. Nonetheless, it's a definite rent/buy.
THE GOOD Provocative dialog & game play. Good amount of humor. Synthesis. Twist on standard battle system. Good graphics.
Jiggling girls aren't enough to make this worth it

I don't think anyone really explained what this game is before I got it in the mail, so here's a simple explanation.
You (a guy) follow two girls around, who can change physical bodies depending on how well you get to know them.
You (the guy) never change what happens in battle. Only the girls have the ability to buff and heal, and different abilities are found by entering their minds at any town you visit... the more you spend time with them, the deeper into their minds you can go.
Also, the girls power lies in their ability to feel the spirit of the planet, so the less clothing, the closer to the planet they are. They only go down to underwear, so it's not that racey.
Gameplay-wise, the game is a normal RPG, but attacks scenes are live, with you running around hitting the only attack button over and over. After some time, the girls have built-up power to buff or attack.
Overall, the game just isn't fun. It's very VERY text/talk heavy, and there are no bosses or ancient weapons to gather... meaning the story is really you simply following the girls around, occasionally making boring decisions on which one you like, so you can get multiple endings... probably the most endings in any game ever.
It takes a lot of time, a lot of reading/listening, and little thought. This is not quirky fun like Hyperdimension Neptune, or dating fun like any of the Persona series... it's just bland.
