Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.
HIGH It’s staggeringly beautiful.
LOW I never want to hear the word “honor” ever again.
WTF The absolute stockpile of headbands I’ve accumulated.
Although the game isn’t out yet (it’s currently due to release in February 2017) Gamecritics was given some “alpha” codes to get an early hands-on. A number of features were disabled and large portions of the content were not available, but this limited slice gave a very good idea of what the full title will deliver… And it’s kind of awesome.
