  1. Can anyone who’s played this tell me how it is? I keep hearing how good it is but honestly, the aesthetics are putting me off. I don’t like the artstyle, and it looks very slow and unexciting.

    1. I don’t think you would like it based on what you said. Gameplay is a bit slow, but it can definitely be exciting seeing your heroes pull themselves together when crap hits the fan and it’s even more fun when you get a grasp of party composition and start making odd groups.
