I find Zeboyd's evolution interesting. Mechanically, this plays somewhere between Cthulhu Saves the World and This Way Madness Lies, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. The Insanity skills certainly make for an interesting combat experience, but I can't say for sure whether it makes for a better one. I will say that I never felt the need to spam the rest moves to reset them, so that's a plus. The story is fantastic.

The only real negative is that the soundtrack overused Carol of the Bells. I am barely aware of the music in games most of the time, and I thought it was too much.
