You want me to PM you the links for it? You're really not missing anything if you don't play it, though. The graphics, music, and sound are the best things it (the intro cutscene features full English voice-acting, strange for a game released only in Japan). Gameplay-wise it's nearly indentical to SO2, it'll show you how unimproved SO2's gameplay really is.
