I'm honestly uncertain if I want to recommend this game or not.
-Interesting world, characters and story.
-Good voice acting
-Extremely linear gameplay, almost boringly so. I've been on actual train rides that have been less railroaded. I get that it is for console gamers originally, but please, they cannot be that weakminded. Not a single place in the game can you figure stuff out for yourself, which pathway to take, or which way to solve a problem. You're basically just following instructions the whole game.
-A lot of the gameplay involves jumping, but you can't jump wrong and there is only one path, so most of the time you don't need to see or aim where you're jumping. Just hit whatever direction you're going and jump, jump, jump. Ta-da, you're there.
-Occasional annoyances due to camera angles
-Some sections are impossible to succeed at unless you're very lucky or you know where the next obstacle is going to be.
-The port from console is not flawless, sometimes when selecting menus with the mouse the cursor is not where it is supposed to be.
-Unskipable cut-scenes. That you have to watch again and again if you die at a difficult section. Seriously, this is not acceptable!
This could have been an awesome game. But the way it has been designed, it should have been an animation movie instead. There's just not enough actual game in it. The player has no agency. I still finished the game, because I wanted to see where it was going and I was marginally pleased. No spoilers, but a waste-disposal related question popped into my mind when I saw the end cutscene, which is the kind of thing that annoys me. Aside from that anal-retentive (pun may be intended) technicality, the game as a whole just doesn't do it for me. There were times in the early game when I thought, this is going to be neat once all the hand-holding and easy linear paths become more complex, but that never happened. As such, I would not recommend this game if you're looking for a good game. If on the other hand you're looking for a cute interactive animated series, then, heck, it's all right for that purpose.
