    Great review, thank you. You have convinced me to get it.

    A small typo on the first page "...body on their conscious." Should read "...body on their conscience."

    Thanks! I think my spellchecker had a hiccup.

    Let me know how you get on with the game!

    My involuntary diaphragm spasms are none of your concern!

    Mostly a good review and bang on about how, to my surprise the episodic nature actually worked really well but I feel you missed one fairly significant issue.

    The games reliance on a constant connection, so bad in the early days that even a momentary loss of connection meant you were forced back to the main menu with all in mission progress lost... seriously shitty. It's marginally better now, as it pauses the game until connection is restored but this issue is regularly mentioned in the negative steam and meta-critic reviews. What's worse, is because the saves for off-line and on-line are considered separate, if you’re forced to revert to an off-line mode, you lose all progress and unlocks.
    It's not on and it is unnecessary and it mars and otherwise excellent game...

    Level wise, Hokkaido for me was the best level, followed closely by Sapiensa with Paris in third place.

    I think I liked Hokkaido and Bangkok the most.
