I didn't want to kill that first dude... He didn't do anything to me :(
I'm not really a fan of the cooldown on the bow, it makes everything so much slower. I tried the sword once and then never again: way too slow, way too short a range, and way too much down time after you hit the enemy. It felt like the story was a bit too predictable too.
Other than those small grievances, I'd say the game was well polished, the little particles and animations really gave it life, and shooting the bow was satisfying. I think that's what kept me playing to the end.
