Having played Munchkin and being curious to try Love Letter, I was intrigued when a friend got this for our group.
Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by the game, though on the whole it's playable. It all boils down to the sometimes jerky way the game progresses. I found that we were very much at the mercy of which cards came up. You can sometimes turn your luck around, but more often than not, say if you keep getting the Potted Plant (which is the most common card), then you're limited in what you can do. It's also not as thematically consistent as Love Letter seems to be, as a friend who's played both said.
Also, cubes for loot tokens? They really could have been much better than the glaringly yellow small cubes given, I believe.
Still, on the whole this a game you can enjoy if you like quick games like Coup, for instance.
