I admit I couldn't wait, and I have to say I love it. The entry has been successful, but still nestles harmoniously sluggishly against each other. The voices of the figures are well chosen, only Philip seems too young and immature to me. I don't...

It is said that at the beginning you will be killed by the many players, but hey whoever gets carried away to dive into the game will enjoy it on the contrary. The sound background music hits the nail on the head. I am looking forward to experience more of it after the short test. I think the graphics and the captured atmosphere are very good, the credits are well done. The new 'business model' with the three books doesn't bother me very much. I knew before I bought it. If you criticize it would be thrown onto the market too early and dismembered, you can wait until it all comes together. So, I enjoy waiting for the next parts. I don't need everything at once, I want to dive in piece by piece and enjoy it, with a hot cup of tea after the hard-working day.
I recommend the game, not just my friends list.
