Summary

A game with potential shot down by serious programming bugs

The Good

Almost everything apart from the initially hard to get secrets and the propensity for the game to crash and corrupt gamesave files.

The Bad

Hopelessly incompetent programming and quality testing has resulted in a game that is not worth playing, in spite of showing many strong points. Game saves often become corrupt to the point of having to start at an earlier point in the game, or even a new game outright.

The Bottom Line

Don't buy it, unless you don't mind end after end of serious game bugs.
