User Reviews

 
Don't quit, the game does some things that basically filters the quitters out very fast. Stick with it, you'll see why.
13 November 2019 | by ioio32lSee all my reviews

At first you'll think this game is boring. But hold tight. Keep at it, you'll soon leave the tutorial area and move on after a boss fight or boss escape. You'll be glad you kept at it when you reach Episode 8. TRUST ME, DO NOT QUIT, everything starts making sense and you will suddenly have everything hit you all at once, and you will thank me and anyone else that told you not to give up. When the credits roll and you set the controller down, enjoy the music, you just beat the best game of all time. You will be emotional during the end. You will be proud of yourself! I'll be proud of you!
