Oh God no! I started playing this last week, racked up a 5 hour save file and decided to check out chpater 1. I saved my game in the first slot for both as i didn't know it woud carry over. No i have a 20 minute save, so all my hard work is down the drain :( But the game itself is excellent, funny dialogue and the reactions system spices up combat. 4.5 stars because i'm too upset to give you 5.
