    Afaik it isn't, because the dialogues are also differently structured at times. Or at least that's what I remember folks saying in the Elex thread.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned but the Age of Decadence devs are also big fans of ELEX.

    yeah VD wrote a glowing review of Gothic 3 when that turd first came out. I would concede that ELEX is definitely much better than G3 tho.

    I find this review to excuse too much about the game. The vast majority of the content in the open world is fucking terrible, the dialogue, the quest design, the main quest.

    The author seems to be in agreement with you about the main quest.

    Do you really want to see any of the hideous degenerates that populate the Codex on YouTube? Every video would feature some neckbearded Chernobyl refugee with skin tags droning on through a review about some half-baked, shitty Eurotrash game in some horribly broken English, with breaks to comment on immigration and transgenders. It would be a horror show.

    Also, "alpha chad" is redundant, all chads are alpha.

    Very err moderate review. Roxor made fun of people bashing the game and playing it 3 times, yet ended up bashing it a lot for the most of the review, ending with "but it's fun".

    Like the clouds, like the wind like the game, like the review
    Just ELEX things

    I feel like lots of it is just paraphrasing what was said many times however, and review could use a bit more of that in depth look.

    Say, 3-6 more pages.

    Please don't make it so short next time.

    Wait, what? On what chapter are you on? Starting on Chapther 3 (or is it 4) some main story desicions are locked for too Cold or too emotional characters. Like, my elex-devouring monster could not get along with Separatists and their hostility was inevitable :/ Later on there were a couple more forced replies which I could not avoid because of too high cold. Basically high cold makes you side with the Hybrid leaving no option to declare full war to him.

    In other words Cold impacts your main story options and available endings.

    that's what you get for not including a little box towards the end of the text with an explicit 1-10 grade and ennumerated pros and cons you clueless rodent
    we call such stuff "reviews"

    This is the game that cured my addiction to grindy games.
    So thanks for that, Elex.
    Other than that it was a complete waste of my time but to each their own I guess.
