Lot of the same
Now this has a great idea, great theme, and lots of great animations. But what i cant stand is that you can pretty much go anywhere and hear the same dialogue and same text. Apparently all the people in this world just blabber the same way. They took something great and got lazy on simple to program text, character development, etc.
The other thing is that the challenges are so often the exact same. You have new skills, new talents, but do the same old thing. They didnt do much to wow or trick you, and honestly once you learn how to play its easy to beat most of the levels.
-I stopped playing because i got to a part that i cant beat a boss. Well turns out hes immune to a bunch of things, and it turns out by no mening of my own i equiped a lot of the same type "damage" weapons to my characters. And best yet, its like 5 waves into an area you "cant return" from, so it means i have to go back like 15 saves to find equivelent weapons for the characters and replay all sorts of crap to get back to the "no return" area, then beat a bunch of the same things to go beat the boss. Its super dumb and has no real reason to be there.
-They just had such a great idea and theme, then didnt do anything to capatilize on their foundation. Ive read reviews for the sequel that recently came out and they say a whole lot of the same things. It seems like the company who developed this cares more about building the cool car and not doing simple things like making the buttons ergononmic or hell even putting the speedometer in front of the driver instead of the trunk.
I woudl say buy this game for 15 dollars or less, its still worth it, but just dont get your hopes up. I would say this is for 15 and younger, they wont get annoyed by it as much as an older person.
