Editors Didn't Like

  • Not much in the way of a narrative, occasionally finicky platforming
  • Shallow combat, Repetitive encounters
  • Repetitive gameplay that doesn't evolve much after the opening hours, Tedious exploration that has far too many moments of instant death
  • However, what is this story?, The map is very difficult to navigate, It can have nearimpossible bottlenecks due to positioning of monsters in platforming areas
