Con Save anywhere does not save character placement
This means that there will be some retreading of areas once a save is loaded as the character will not be in the same place as where they were left off. This will waste time and can be frustrating having to do this every time a game is loaded.
Con The game itself is a bit clunky
Some mechanics feel a little clunky, such as the friendly fire mechanic.
