What's New in Version 5.03
BEWARE: Progress Disappears
Really enjoyed the first chapter, but when I upgraded to season pass, all my progress disappeared. I had read someone else review the same thing, but I have read stuff like this before but it does not usually happen to me. This time is different. To make matters worse, I had gone through chapter 1 in almost the whole entirety again, and next time I opened the game, everything was gone again. There is no option to save your game, and it supposedly does it automatically for you. But no progress, not even the game slot was saved. So I decided to just start chapter 2 without going through chapter 1 again, but nothing you've collected, nothing you have upgraded stays. It is basically like starting from scratch but from a harder chapter.
In addition, the additional chapters take another 6-7 gigs, and I had to delete almost every other app I had on this iPad to be able to download.
I am seriously considering asking for my money back unless the developers update this issue.
I actually downloaded this game when it came out and loved it but it took up way too much space and I deleted it. This time around it took days to get, I mean it would not download at all, not with Wi-Fi or without. I completely cleared my phone for this game and still. I managed to download it eventually and reading here it says the episodes are free now so I was excited to be able to continue the game. Turns out they're actually not free... I wouldn't mind paying either if it wasn't for the reviews. Things like the last 2 episodes were disappointing and that buying the pass rather than spending more on individual episodes caused the game to crash and become unplayable. And those people didn't get refunds nor did the game get fixed. I loved the first episode though, this game is pretty great, I just wish it was more accessible.
Updated for Episode 5. The "multiple storylines" was bull. The devs had an incredible start with Episodes 1-3 and obviously decided to turn their backs on the game and their community with a lousy final episode and incredibly disappointing ending.
From 5/5 to 1/5.
My first review is below. Now we wait months for Episode 4 and:
1) The voice acting in the first two three characters alone are completely superficial and don't bring the emotional connection they did before. What a let down.
2) The great disembodied voice and digital attitude of the "secret helper" has been replaced by a monotone voice with no expressions and speaks in heroic couplets??? Come on!
3) The "boss" in Chapter 4 manages to become an offensive stereotype in under 30 seconds.
It seems like the bar may have been set too high by Chapters 1-3 and maybe they lost some key writers or voice actors, but Chapter 4 is so far not even in the league of Chapters 1-3. It's too bad -- this could have been one of the best games of the decade.
(Original Review of Chapters 1-3):
This is an outstanding stealth game with the most compelling storyline I've ever seen in a mobile game! Outstanding work! (PS - Buy the season pass...the dev commentary is VERY worth it!)
