IGN: Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale Review

Have you ever wanted to man the item counter in a role-playing game like Torneko from Dragon Quest IV? That's exactly what you'll do in Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale. It's a game packed with content and personality that challenges you to comb through dungeons and a spend-crazy customer base on a quest for profits. Though the entertainment value of the haggling and combat mechanics gradually wear too thin, that won't happen until a number of hours in. It's a refreshing take on the traditional role-playing game, and if you wind up loving the gameplay, a number of modes wind up unlocking after the main game is complete. At the very least, it's probably the most fun you'll ever have repaying a loan.
