There is so much I want to say, but I think it can all be summed up in one sentence. This was freakin' rad! This installment was a little more linear than I'm used to from you, especially after your last iteration. In this case though, that doesn't hurt it. The game actively encourages you to explore every path and then tells you when there is nothing to be found. This is a completionist's wet dream. If I had to criticize ANYTHING about this game it would be the overabundance of money. I bought everything I could see and still had thousands of gold to spare. It might had added more weight to the choices if money was more scarce and we could only get everything if we optimized our playthrough. Who am I kidding? That's not what made this game fun. It's clear early on that I'm basically playing this game with God mode on and stuck in the initial honeymoon period of rampage. It was all the badassery I would imagine in this scenario and the ability to just be a weapon of mass destruction is plain fun.
I admit I wrote this review just to rant endlessly about my experience and had no real significant input to make the game better. That just means you nailed it.
On a sidenote, poor axe-smasher. He had the potential to be so cool. It's too bad he was only a kung fu barbarian and not a kung fu space barbarian or he might still be alive.
Great job! I eagerly await your next submission.
