This is one of those titles that I see being divisive, especially since I think enjoyment ultimately will spring from how much you enjoy the game’s sense of humor rather than the gameplay itself. I’ll give it credit for setting a stage for overall amusement with you playing as the under-appreciated healer of a pretty typical ragtag party of miscreants. Most of the game’s humor springs from this sort of love/hate relationship with your group, though there are also general self-conscious jokes about genre tropes and the like as well. The game unfortunately needs to lean pretty hard on the funny in order to compensate for generally lackluster action as you’ll need to battle cooldowns while you try to keep your party alive through a mix you’ll choose of buffs and healing skills, which you’ll then be able to customize a bit through the upgrade trees. Overall a pretty light but somewhat grindy affair if the humor amuses you it serves as a great hook but not it’s also not going to be for everyone by any means.
