Questionable Strength In Numbers

Utawarerumono: Mask Of Truth Review

A Not-So-Surprisingly Improved Sequel

HIGH The story is more complex this time, and has shed some of the dumb boob jokes.

HIGH It splits the difference between Freelancer and Masters of Orion

LOW …by building one game and grafting it onto the spine of the other.

WTF Awkward mouse and keyboard controls for a PC exclusive.
