Finished The Ascent. Wasn't thrilled with it.
I definitely agree with this sentiment. It feels like something critical was missing from its gameplay loop.I really enjoyed the Ascent, but it really did feel like it wanted to be an RPG, not just a twin stick shooter. Its got this interesting world with so many npcs and such, but its just a shooter... Really felt like it wanted to have more complicated systems, maybe still action combat but like moral choices, rpg stats, etc etc.
