I really regret blowing a tenner on this sight unseen, it's really not that amazing. For one thing it has pretty high demands or else it ... run... s... so... slo... wly... the lag is unbelievable, almost unplayable. But then I'm on a 2010 MBP so that's my fault really, I need to try it on my new iMac I suppose.|
(insert 'Mac gaming lol' comment here!)
But already I'm getting pissed off dragging my ass across just one area to pick up items I need that got dropped elsewhere because of the lack of inventory, so how it's going to feel when I've got to traverse several areas for the same thing, god knows. Also not sure I'll have the slightest desire to play it all a third time just for one last character.
I remember reading Schafer making a comment about 'how do we do an adventure game without an inventory?' in previews for the game, and the answer is evidently "by annoying the utter shit out of your players by making them haul their ass across the map all the livelong day because everyone can only hold one bloody item at a time". Not a great solution, we can all spot padding when we see it.
I think EDGE's review is spot on.
