After a while, Ac­quire seems less con­cerned with its sto­ry­line than the dy­nam­ics of your group, which is to the game’s ad­van­tage. The writ­ing is at its best when it comes to on­line in­ter­ac­tions, adding flavour to al­ready strong char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion. In-game so­cial net­work Pit­ter is a joy to leaf through, though the abra­sive na­ture of cer­tain posters is taken a step too far, with a trans­pho­bic slur strik­ing a sour note, even if you could make the de­press­ing case that it only adds to the authenticity.
