I really like the Choice of Games. I check for new offerings at least once a week and auto-buy I only ever do this with Choice Of and Kairosoft games.
I feel like CoG as a company must be going through growing pains because I feel the titles are providing less quality now as the originals did.
I disliked The Fleet, but… I can’t like every game. And then I found Slammed was incredibly linear - it pushed you into what it wanted you to do. Despite the fact I chose polar opposites in my second run-through, I still ended up with basically the same story.
But Choice of Ninja only took an hour for me to complete. I was flabbergasted - I bought it before a road trip expecting it to last most of the journey, as the others before it have done. At the end I had “1 Ally, 1 Enemy and 1 Wound” – But they didn’t affect the storyline at all in it’s current iteration, and feels like someone had grand plans for the book, but then gave up half way through and hurried it out. It’s the first Choice Of that I’ll be asking for a refund.
As said; these games are brilliant and my faith in Choice of Games has not been knocked. While my favourite isn’t even a Choice Of production (It’s Life Of A Wizard, so deep and diverse) I know that Choice Of are making some of my favourite games for the iDevices.
I’d love to see the quality get back on par with what it used to be.
