Underdeveloped story branching

The whole point of this game is to experiment with different interactive cutscenes to uncover various endings. Unfortunately, more than 10 of the endings stem from the same dozen cutscenes. And, several mandatory cutscenes don't have any purpose within the current story arc. This makes discovering endings near impossible.

I'm actually a fan of the first 2 WOTS. This one provides a similar combat engine (which they simplified too far in my opinion), and added a twitch instant kill mode. However, I already unlocked all the extras before I had a chance to explore the combat and story fully. Now I find little reason to continue. But sadly, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to a 4th. . .

This Game is beautiful to look at but not very exciting to play. I found the lack of instructions very fustrating even though i'm new to this series i expected to see some clue as to what does what. The fact that you are penalized for looking for items is also a downer.
