The upgrading system is great and there's plenty to buy. The combat is great, although it might take an hour or so to get used to the button mapping. Once you've mastered the controls, you'll quickly realize how much there is to take in and get through. Thankfully, the gameplay doesn't get overly repetitive, mainly thanks to a great story and some awesome enemies."
