Game Visuals

Game Audio

I want to mentioned that the audio for this game is well done even its simplistic and somewhat repetitive. The audio can be adjusted in the option menu as well.

Game Voice Overs

Normally, I don’t have any comments to say about voice overs in games. Since that they’re generally decent. But it’s a different story with this game. The voice overs in this game isn’t so great. The voice actors/actress aren’t interested in what they’re suppose to be doing.

The interactive map allows the player to fast travel between each location quickly. It also indicates there are tasks that needs to be done at certain locations. It isn’t given automatically at the start of the game.
