    I can see where the team is going with this and it feels like what we're getting here is essentially the opening scrawl of a series or big-budget film to explain the structure of things. It's clear enough but not populated enough for us to really connect it well as it mostly focuses on just on our two leads and a handful of other characters. I do like the premise and the way there's strict controls here which makes me curious to see how they intend to break things going forward. But it's mostly just operating in a kind of clunky way to set the foundations here as quickly as possible but without it being a full infodump. Maine handles this well in showing off a lot of different places so we understand the expensive size of the clans overall and that definitely helps. Read Full Review
