    Ah that's a pity, I do prefer things short and sharp. Can you save-and-quit in the middle of a mission? Even Ronin frustrated me occasionally with the inability to do that, and none of those levels...

    Indeed! I tend to be slightly compulsive in the way I play non-infinite games, anyway -- for as long as they're sitting there unfinished (but not abandoned) I feel slightly uneasy, so I end up...

    Just beat it! It was a fun challenge but not overwhelming; I think the most important things I'd learned were that you can get away with quite a lot before triggering the turn-based combat, and...

    Looks like opinions are mixed, but people who loved the swinging in 2 were a bit disappointed by Ultimate? Good to see there was a decent PC version, though.
