Sure the art is great, and the story is ok, but the gameplay is extremely underwhelming, boring, and unbalanced. Everything ties into a single gameplay mechanic called Morale, which honestly doesn’t do much. You can play almost the entire game without resting, feeding your caravan, and winning any battles. There is absolutely no challenge and no balance. What’s the point to even playing? I played this hoping it would be an epic revisit to games like Oregon Trail, but it’s just utterly stale. And talk about pricey too. $20 for 9 hours of mindless pit-stops and redundant strategy is not worth it. Every hour I spent in this game, the more disappointed I became. This could have easily been great, if only the developers knew some basic fundamentals of game design, instead of trying to make everything look pretty.
