  • Combat can get very messy and clumsy.
  • Combat takes a bit of getting used to.
  • Sometimes it’s hard to see who is an enemy.
  • The items that drop out of enemies and objects roll and bounce far away fast.
  • In the inventory menus, the primary and secondary weapons are all mixed up.
  • The menu structure doesn’t lend itself well to the fast swapping of weapons.
  • The tutorial is far too basic and misses out on some key information.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
