When i was starting to play this game i thought the game was interesting, which the story line is. However the game play is not, at least not to me anyways. It was really frustrating to try to climb the tower of blocks to the point where i could not play it anymore and had to send it back. But i gave it a shot and it was a good game but didn't like the game play much.

I was very excited to try this game, but it wound up being fairly mediocre. I enjoyed the story, but found it a bit long winded. The puzzle mechanic was fun. The arcade game in the bar is more of the same with an 8 bit skin, and to be honest, i could have done without it.
Now as far as the pros, it is twisted, and fun, and something that I have never played before. It is a worthwile rent, and thankfully gamefly is around so you can play a title like this, and not feel like you spent too much on it.
This game's story is mostly like a anime so if you don't enjoy anime at all don't play this game.I personally like anime to a extent.If you don't like puzzlers like Qbert or tetris, you will not like this game. It is a fun game and the game rewards with fun and addicting gameplay if you love puzzlers.I haven't beaten the game yet I up to the 5 night. where they introduce ice blocks which really change gameplay.Ok now I will talk about the story and I will try not to give out major spoilers. Ok you are dating a girl named Katharine and she wants to get married to the main character (Vincent). He freaks out and ends up sleeping with a girl named Catharine but with this love triangle Vincent gets nightmares where he stacks block and stuff like that.So as he goes on in the story your choices are effected by your mood and your karma.Also during the lobby stage right before every puzzle before the first one of the night you get to answer a question, which effects your karma but the cool thing is that after you answer it you get to see other players results.The graphics are awesome.The sound of the game is great.I suggest before you rent it try out the demo out on the market or psn store if you like the demo you will love the game. Also here is a note when you get to night 4 I think where you fight the baby boss that thing is freaking annoying and creepy. Also that level is freaking hard and you want to get to the checkpoint as quick as you can. So you cover this all this game is only for a specific crowd. It is made for people who like anime and puzzlers if you like 1 or both of these things give this game a try.
