You will certainly get a lot of joy and challenge playing through the game on your own, but when you will be craving some interaction with friends, you will return to the console versions. Had they held off from releasing this until later in the year and added even a basic multiplayer mode, I would have said to buy this without a doubt. But since there is no ability to play with friends, it is probably better to try before you buy or hold off until we get a follow-up that includes multiplayer".
