Anyone hugely disappointed by...

This is kind of a dead board, but why not? Was anyone disappointed by the story in this game? Around the 5th or 6th chapter, the story seemed great and had lots of potential. What was the mystery between Karen and the Divine Maiden? What was the true purpose of the shadowy Endrum Collective and Magshi's true goal? Was there any hidden truths about Ethan's father or any other character? The answer was no. Everything sort of tumbled downhill from there. Everything was explanation was either really lame and unimaginative or nonexistent. I don't know, it seemed at first that it had so much room to grow then it was sort of dashed in my face. I dunno... I put too much stock into the story I guess, I just wish it could have been what I imagined. If anyone still lurks on these boards... did you feel the same way?

You're missing the AOTI story, Online only story, and side mission stories. All of your points are covered there.

The major downside to the AOTI storyline is that Episode 3 (PSU being Episode 1 and AOTI being episode 2)- which would've almost certainly tied up story arcs that were left hanging - were only available to those who were online.

Heck, there were various characters visible in the AOTI introduction FMV that were never introduced through the story mode.

Oh okay. I tried to go online once, but I think they've taken that down now.

They took down Online access quite some time ago ( I made a topic here around about when Online was removed...)

As I said, Episode 3 - which would've solved all the plot-holes - was online only.

There are various private server projects, but I cannot link you to them on GameFAQs or give you details on them.

I think the Xbox 360 servers up, so if you can get that version, you'll get the rest of the story. Still frustrating for a large group of players though. It's why I may not bother beating ep. 1. Doesn't seem to be much point.

I recall hearing that they either announced the 360 servers were coming down, or that they were down - I don't recall which.

Of course, I could be wrong, but I won't be buying an Xbox on the chance I might get to see the rest of the story - which isn't likely on my connection.

Well that sucks. I've nearly beaten episode one, and AOTI's sitting at my local gamestop, but there's no point in buying it when I won't be able to play it. A shame too, because is has an interesting story and world. Guess I'll get PSU Online 2.

You CAN play AOTI - using your PSU "Extra mode" save as well (if you made one). You just won't be able to use the online aspect of it.
