I like it. The Gattling gun is a waste of money, so weak. I went from a 16mm gun to a 9mm gat and it's pathetic. Rate of fire is increased by a lot, but just feels like I'm shooting with a pea shooter.
OOooh called you on that one pretty quick. I am so up in the air on this game. Some people crap on it, but I see quite a few swear by it being pretty well underrated (ie: good.) Quite a few posts in that original Japanese release seem to comment on it being decently well handled and a nice blend of action and rpg.
