I played from chapter 2 to chapter 7. I'm enjoying the game so far. For those who are interested, the gameplay is Gears of War with a Krull. I don't know what that is.....just think bladed boomarang.
The story is absolutely nonsensical. When I read the reviews and they pronounced the story nonsense...well I didn't believe them. Now having played half the game I kinda see what the creator was trying to do, but MAN it's nonsense!
They don't explain anything really, but I think if they had added some journals or flashbacks to explain the backstory of the characters (which is clearly insinuated) or as a filler for the story that's ongoing.
Just plain fun though; with some tough scenerios to work your way through.
