  • In the tutorial, it doesn’t mention anything about supernatural enemies.
  • The game just doesn’t feel as smooth as it should be.
  • Only a few locations.
  • The failing of a heist just ended and then I had a delay until the game told me it failed and how I was doing.
  • No way to check operations progress when in the game.
  • The operations feel a bit flat and disconnected.
  • You do not create your character, you are just given an avatar and you just dress them up.

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!
