The meat of the game has you receiving missions via e-mail on an in-game laptop computer. The missions contain text instructing you what to take pictures of, and a small video clip that demonstrates roughly what you should be trying to capture. This is where the language barrier surfaces for those of use who do not speak Japanese – while the first few missions are obvious, later missions can have tricky subtleties to them. For example, you might have to take a picture in portrait mode, use a remote camera, or capture specific behaviors of animals. If you know Japanese or can get past this with the use of online guides and forums, though, you'll find that everything else is pretty intuitive.
