    I loved this game. I decided to just check it out and then I couldn't stop playing it. Great story, extremely well done. Challenging, but not frustratingly so. I highly recommend giving it a try if you haven't played it yet.

    Agree with the comment on Galerius being awesome, lol
    Such a fun game, both in terms of gameplay and story - really excited to see what the devs come up with next.
    Also a great write up - really enjoyable read :)

    I'm kind of surprised only 164 gamers completed it since it's not that long of a game. Regardless, This was such a fun and interesting game. A perfect Playlist pick.
    Cheers!

    As always, a big thank you goes out to BetaSigX20 for writing the TA Playlist Wrap-Up!
    Most definitely! Another exceptional TA Playlist Wrap-Up!

    This was an ideal game for the Playlist. It’s a tightly plotted game with some dramatic twists. It encourages discussion & has a lot of achievements so players are constantly being rewarded as they progress through a rich, fast-paced, & compact game.

    And how could one not like Galerius? Salve, friend.

    I saw a couple people in the thread that were concerned by the high number of missables. It's a bit misleading for a game like this though, where you could realistically mop up everything you missed in an hour or so with cheats enabled.

    Launched and uninstalled few minutes later. I personally didn't like the first impact...

    I played without a guide. Understandably, I missed out on the Minimalist achievement. However, I started a new game and, with 20-20 hindsight, played a close to optimal path. By that time, though, we were in September.

    The game made it's way onto my list of all time favorites.
    I ended up playing Hades right after which made that experience even better since I went in with some better knowledge of ancient Greek culture.
    And before this I played Assassins Creed: Origins (Egyptian). It was just lucky timing that really taught me a lot about this stuff.

    I should really play this before it leaves Game Pass some day...

    You can get Minimalist in about 15 minutes from a new game with the walk through walls code. I had already beaten the game and seen all the endings at that point, so I was OK with using the code for that last achievement.

    I enjoyed figuring out an efficient path through the game after stumbling around and discovering things by accident. Although I was inefficient, at first, I tried to be systematic. The whispers helped a lot and the quests provide very good tracking. So, it was just a matter of rearranging the order in which I did things to avoid unnecessary loops. I still have three achievements to go but I should have them unlocked soon.
