I could love this game a lot if not for the bugs and the cut and paste overuse of maps. These two things kill an otherwise wonderful game. At the same time the game had moments that were so heartwarming and moments that were totally heartbreaking. I am on the fence about a score for this game. If I was reviewing today I would give it a much lower score than 8.5, but if they patch the game I think this is a perfect good score.
