    Epic Adventures: La Jangada

    Starts out slow and picks up interest level after the first few scenes. The notes after almost every single rose in the first scene would have normally made me say, "Forget this," but I continued on since I'd read some nice comments about the game a while back. I'd like to continue to see how it all plays out...

    Except that I can't stand it.

    I've seen people talk about fuzzy graphics before, and those have not bothered me. These graphics, however, don't seem fuzzy - they're blurry! Not a junk pile in sight, true, but you also can't find anything without hints (after the first few easy items).

    Ugh.Meh

    This is the first game I've played where I didn't care about actually playing it - I wanted to skip the gameplay and see the story >_< NOT a good sign. I see zero replayability in this whatsoever, which is a shame since they put so much work into the story.

    Fix the blurry graphics! then we'll talk Silly face
