DL, I hate turn based RPGs but I couldn't put this down. I beat it today and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I did all the side quests though, so the game did get a bit easy towards the end.
Canada was really awesome, but I won't say why. If you've gotten there and didn't enjoy its creativity, you might want to reconsider gaming.
I have not played it but I have seen what makes Canada awesome, and it does look kick ass, but I probably will never see it. I sent my copy back to GameFly this morning.
I only get around 5-10 hours per week to game these days so I am more and more particular about what I play as a result. This past week I only played about 4 hours for the entire week., If I had the time like I once used to and/or if there were not other games currently out that I am more interested in playing, I would have powered through the game despite me disliking the gameplay mechanic.
Since I do not have that luxury anymore and there are other games that I do enjoy playing I made the decision not to continue forcing myself to enjoy the game. It was not an easy decision either, I want to like the game, I truly truly do, and despite me actually loving certain aspects of it, I just do not enjoy other aspects of it enough.
Absolutely a situation where the good does not outweigh the bad unfortunately.
