It is a great game overall thanks to the developer and can be a quick time pass. The game lacks so many features that are present in its Xbox version. The new look makes it more interesting but the slow loading makes it creepy. The addition of a new location certainly makes it better while the other unlocked content that you are prompted blurs the fun while you are playing at it. The game has many shortcomings but once overlooked it’s a leisure time pass.
