I'm going to start the voting off on this one with a three. This story is sort of a mixed bag. On one hand we have an excellent and original idea, a brilliant antagonist and some great characters, but on the other hand it is drawn out quite long with not a lot really happening. As a result of the pacing I think a lot of potential tension is lost. I also think some of the games were a bit on the weak side. We are meant to believe that The Toymaker is practically impossible to beat, and yet Dodo and Steven manage it pretty easily, not because they are super bright, but because the games and players are so flawed. It hardly makes him seem like a mastermind. I think that this story would be wonderful if it was made shorter, perhaps a two parter, with a tighter script and more challenging challenges. And perhaps more of an explanation about the trilogic game. Despite seeing the recon numerous times I still have no idea what it is or how you play.
