The Press Reviews

  • Like a surly teen pilot, you, too, might find yourself bored and muttering, "Honestly, maybe the fate of humanity and the world isn't important to me, either.'' Full Review

  • For the most part, this is the kind of immersive fanboy experience that doesn't suffer wandering attention spans. Full Review

  • It's strictly for the fans, who will furiously parse the changes in the narrative (including a new female pilot) and the nonsensical stew of philosophical and religious symbolism. Full Review

  • Sets the stage for new, apocalyptic changes in the next "Rebuild" feature, and they appear to be the kind of changes fans have been waiting on for years. Full Review
