It is indeed a decent game with an interesting world, but I hated almost every character. Between constant brooding, lack of common sense, and fickle attitudes, I found only Sachz the only likable character.
I just spit out my drink when I was watching the cut sense of Lightning's birthday and her sister explaining her curse to her and one of the first thing Lightning says is "Worst birthday ever."
Lightning is a douche queen.
And Hope... Oh dear gawd... I know he's a child, but that child is a psychopath. Willing let hundreds of people to starve to death with reasoning of "Hey, we're already hated so meh."
Anyways, it's no wonder it's only 15 dollars on steam.
