Idea Factory does it again! Another half-baked piece of otaku-bait garbage. This time, we've got cute girls -- wearing what looks like a cross between a school uniform, a maid uniform, and a space pilot suit -- ostensibly artificial life-forms created to be "ultimate super soldiers", who pilot giant robots in order to protect the Earth from some vaguely-defined evil. There's a pervasive sense of emptiness permeating at least the small bits I've played, making the world feel as if it's already dead before you even start.

The best(?) part is the battle sequences, which play out as a really lame rhythm game where you simply have to hit the right direction at the right time to, essentially, tell the girls that they should move if they don't want to get hit by things. The whole thing is devoid of any redeeming value whatsoever.

My copy is technically the limited edition, which originally came with a drama CD, but I've only got the game part. No big loss, really.
