The lesson here is to not buy something on faith.
Having found the most impressive thing about the Utopia series to be the music, this morning I decided to treat myself to the soundtrack (I purchased a FLAC download from another site).
Well, it isn't 1992 anymore and this isn't the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack. So why ruin the music with all this lame dialogue?
I've been listening to the soundtrack as I write this and the dialogue has only grown more distracting, causing me to amend my original rating from 3 to 2 stars.
I regret this purchase.
