The premise is interesting and decently presented. The types of characters seems rather varied, providing for a good variety of backgrounds. I would have liked just a little more information on the status of both Canada and Mexico, but that certainly would not distract from game play.
The reason for the low rating is Chapter 8. The Equipment section (or catalog) is nearly illegible, with black text on a dark grey background. Unless you zoom in rather closely, it can't be read.
Should this be corrected in the future, the game would receive a much higher rating from me.
