  • A slight slowdown in places.
  • The tutorial is fine but it kinda says something then leaves it and doesn’t help guide you around the interface or buttons.
  • The traversal of the world is slow.
  • Loot chests opening is fine but the actual loot is just words on the screen.
  • Not always clear on what icons mean.
  • The interaction window on vendors can be tight meaning you miss them or hit a different person/object.
  • The story is spread out causing long lulls in the action.

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!
