Everything is wicked smooth, just polished beyond belief. Controls are very responsive, menus are pretty simple to navigate, nothing as far as the UI seems to be getting in the way or working against you. My ONLY gripe so far is the limited inventory lol. But I can deal with that. I've only played to the powering on of the Reactor, so I'm still pretty early in. But so far, just color me impressed! The art work is on point, its a pixel style, and it still gives you that survival horror type atmosphere. The music... Ok, so I listened to the preview on the blog and wasn't exactly a fan. But that really doesn't do it justice. It almost has a Parasite Eve kind of vibe to it in my opinion, which I really like. I guess my issue was that I couldn't really put context into it. I'm interested in how the story will unfold, I love the hub style thing that is going on. And let me tell you, at this point the game is worth every penny. I am loving it. I would have bought it if it was on some backwards ass release mark up. The price point is great. Happy to say I am a day one player!
