Summary

Such a fantastic idea for a game and for the most part they manage to pull it off. Allowing you to replay characters last day from a multiple of perspectives really empowers the story. The combat all through a lot like Arkham, Works well with a fluid engaging experience when it works as I did have a few instances of it missing combo hits. The levels apart from looking spectacular are very big and open and encourage you to go outside the box with it all and for that, I am truly thankful. The bad sides are many bugs and glitches, A one and done feel to it all and the fact you can clock it in just a few hours. Anyway, I say give it a chance because the premise and story are excellent and must be witnessed.

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!
