For a Choose Your Own Adventure type story, KNOWING that at the end of your first play through, there is and can ONLY be one ending is bull.
What's worse, is I came into F/SN after watching the Anime.
I look at the game and go
Only to be shot in the face with a resounding "NO!!"
I don't mean to say X is better than Y, but even Tsukihime had three possibilities for endings on the first run through, and a fourth if you were really desperate.
I'm GREATLY looking forward to UBW and HF of the game, but I don't think I'm ever going to play Fate again.
It has good moments, and a rather good second H scene, but regardless of what choices I make, I cannot change the outcome of the story.
Fate really is like Fate. Try as you might to change it, the result will always be the same.
I absolutely hate that. If you're going to give me "control" over a story, it shouldn't be only a mock control.
"Yeah, there's multiple ways you can die, but sorry dude, you can only live this way! >8D"
Did anyone else feel the same way, or enter in the same conditions?
