I didn't hate it. I actually really enjoyed my time with it. However, I would say it's massively overrated online.
My main problem is that the main story is mostly bad and filled with out of nowhere nonsequiturs (Such as the underground bitch with the radio, secret old commie ending, the conflict between Union and wild pines ends with a shootout). Which makes it feel very unsatisfactory as a mystery game. Further, the endings of the main story have pretty much no influence as a result of your choices.
Other than that the political dialog is not particularly interesting or funny after the initial start. Mostly political compass meme tier shit.
On this topic, the writing is good for games but not unbelievably amazing as its made out to be.
Further to this, the game ends too quickly IMO, without really diving into most of its stories or providing resolution for its characters.
Btw this is not to say the game is not good, or better than the vast majority of RPGs. It's just not the medium-altering masterpiece it's made out to be. If people said , its an 8 or a 9 fun play I would of agreed. But people will say it's a 10/10 masterpiece best RPG EVA!!! Which I don't think is truebrocialismBrocialism
