Good Story, Poor Editing
I just finished all 113 episodes of Campus Crush, and greatly enjoyed it. The story was pretty good (a lot of intrigue, although some of it required me to suspend my disbelief), and the writing was better than some other Episode stories I've played. I had few to no issues with the actual content. My gripe is with the editing.
I found that the writing is riddled with errors. Some of it is annoying but minor things, like forgotten periods and commas. Some are bizarre spelling mistakes (Upsalon? Omacron?). The most confusing though, was referring to characters by the wrong name, or changing the name that a character went by. Carter Blaine switched between Carter and Blaine. Sarah Livingston would inexplicably be Susan Livingston. Some of the minor characters (Alma springs to mind) also had similar issues. I found these to be incredibly frustrating because two to three read-throughs by either the author or an editor would have caught these mistakes, and made the story more professional.
A lot of people have complained about the ads, and while I think 3 30 second ads to play a chapter is a bit much, I would be completely fine with 3 15 second ads, or even 2 30 second ads. Episode does have to pay the bills somehow.
TL;DR: Interesting story, bad editing that sometimes interfered with understanding, ads are annoying but understandable.
Do not get me wrong, I am pretty much addicted to all of the Episode apps and stories. But this is just a minor suggestion. It would be greatly appreciated if the following was taken into consideration. So, who else out there agrees with me that there should be a way to go back and see every choice you made? Would that not be so cool if you could "re-play" the story. Except the difference is, that, when you replay it you do not have the options to choose from. You just click through and you get to see all of the decisions you made along the way. I personally would absolutely love to be able to go back and to read all of the decisions that I made. To be able to see if I now have a different opinion than I did when first creating the story. I think that this would be a really great idea. Not only would it be so super cool to see what decisions you made, but, you could also prevent yourself from making the same decisions and having the same exact outcome every single time you play the story.
Hope this is taken into consideration. It would be greatly appreciated.
I have the app with all of the stories on episode, and also some of the individual apps. there is two things I think make this app's ratings go down; the fact that the episodes are sometimes even shorter than watching the adds & the fact that you have to wait so long for passes. and once you get to your maximum limit, every time the time needed stocks up, you do not get more passes, because you already have the "maximum" limit, without paying money. maybe if these were taken into consideration, I would rate the app higher, but as of right now, I'd give it a three, (still a great game and download).
