Clearly owes a bit to White Wolf's Mage: The Ascension in it's premise, although it develops the idea in different ways. The similarity lies in the notion of paradigms and consensual reality, along with affiliation groups (7) that espouse differing philosophies about reality and what to do with it.
The layout is attractive, and the manga style art (which is very good) gives it something of a Matrix/Kill Bill feel as much as anything else. The system mechanics work easily enough, with lots of examples provided. Again the core mechanic is similar to White Wolf's dice pools, although it is stripped down a lot. Notably the combat system operates on a playing card-based action system which is novel, while the 'paradigm push' is a lot more open-ended than Mage's Spheres of Magic(k).
Basically, this is a great game for those who liked the premise of Mage, but felt that it was out of ill-suited to the broader World of Darkness setting. In some regards, it can be seen as the equivalent of Lords of Gossamer and Shadow to the original Amber, except for Mage instead.
