Geoff yep, that’s exactly right. if only they had simply elected NOT to put any of that nonsense in there “because they did it in the 90s,” it would be a wholehearted recommendation from me. Mechanically it remains the 2nd best beat em up on the system, very close to the best looking, does stuff with sound no other game does, etc. I’m glad I preordered it 50 years ago for the original price, because I saved literally $130, if I would even have been able to stomach buying it once I knew it had some objectionable stuff in it. It makes playing it a weird experience, that is for sure.
Also before I played Paprium I backed their next game which may never come out ever, so… more’s the fool me. But if it does come out, rest assured, I’ll let you all know what it’s about.
