Yet another possitive review; though the game holds a 58 Metascore by some magazine review scores that, up to my guess, wrote it off as "hurr girls stripping durr otakus".

Yeah definitely. I'm playing through the game right now and even though it's not perfect, i'm definitely enjoying it. It's at least a 70 imo.

That's pretty much exactly what happened. The same thing happened to Neptunia.

Meanwhile, generic buggy shooter #23574897389 that happened to have a big devloper/publisher gets 9s across the board.
