If you enjoy strong story elements and deep emotional connections to characters, this may not be the game for you. However, if you’re looking for a balance between all of the above mentioned, it’s definitely worth a look. While I expect a variety of patches to fix some of the minor issues, this is a game that is thoroughly enjoyable (especially in the right company). Touch up a bit around the edges and it could be absolutely amazing. Just, ah, watch out for the propane tanks."
