Yeah, I really agree. Thanks to Slugawoo's guide it only took me about 15 minutes to find my key. The step was tedious, but at least you knew that everyone had a key and would find it eventually if you approached the maze systematically.Foghawk wrote:The card game, though. There is no user input! Literally none! Cheat! is more strategic than this. (Also, I love that the dashing, shady fighter pilots are betting on the game better known as Old Maid. "Stealth Bomber", hah... go on, guys, break out the teacups, we know you want to.)
But this card game? Good grief. It's horrible. Has the person who came up with that ever played cards with other humans before? Have they ever had fun before? Who decides on a game like that and thinks, "Yes, everyone will really enjoy this!" There are literally hundreds of half-decent card games to choose from and this is the one we got. It's all just luck. No matter how strategically you approach it, there's no guarantee you'll ever get five wins. I did, but only after about 40 minutes of growling at the damn thing.
While I'm at it, I don't care for the cards themselves. Most of the plot's art has been great, but the cards are kind of strange. Why are they so shredded up and folded? That makes the deck really hard to shuffle and deal. Think of the paper cuts! Come on, boys. I know you're very badass criminals or... whatever, but there's no shame in investing in some decent cards if that's what you do all day. Also the face cards really confused me. I think the jack is Jaxon, which I guess I accept because it's punny. The queen took me forever. Turns out it's the bumbus from the blue building, not just a big smear. I still have no idea who the king is... All I can tell is he has very strange hair so I assume it's Keith?
