Yeah, the rigidity of the way the game delivers such a promising idea was my chief complaint. I don't think I slammed it though.
Maybe "Slammed" was too strong a word, but you weren't a very tender lover...
... Oh, wait, the game review?? Yeah, fair call.
It's such a shame that an original, interesting, new idea like this went down that kind of path and didn't offer up what could have been a bounty of brilliant inovation. Me? I blame the Terrorists, by which I mean the game designers.
