Why is this game rated T? This looks so kid appropriate. Wow ESRB, you guys do too much stuff to think this game is T.

While this game has a story behind it, unless you have the instruction manual or look it up online you'll never know what it is.
The game controls almost entirely with the analog sticks, shoulder buttons, and the L3 and R3 button. The L3 and R3 buttons are used in conjunction with the R1 button to perform the "scarf bomb" attack which is used to exorcise a demon of vanity from your older sisters. On the downside the "scarf bomb" attack is so powerful if it connects successfully that you can decimate any of the bosses in a matter of seconds. The only thing that attempts to balance out this ability is that you need points to perform this move, but you can accumulate points rather easily in the EX stages where you engage enemies that rarely attempt to fight back.
The game also suffers from a lack of innovation to be honest. While the idea of pulling and stretching out the environment itself was an interesting idea. The only thing you can do with this stretch ability beside damage enemies with pinching attacks is to fling yourself across the screen by grabbing something with the R1 button and then pressing the R3 button.
While the game does feature a small number of polygons the developers use them in a way that gives the game a visual flare. The game seems to take it's visual queues from stuff like Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.
There isn't anything majorly wrong with the sound to be honest. The lack of sound in some areas adds to the creepiness factor of the game and contributes to the visual style. The only small issue I have is how annoying the music is before every boss battle.
This game doesn't have any replay value to be honest. The game starts to grow old after a few hours which is all you'll need to beat this game.
