Whenever you take control of a town or any other significant location on Arulco, the action switches to the castle of evil dictator Deidranna for a brief in-engine cut-scene. For some reason, all news of your progress is relayed to her by some poor sap known only as ‘Elliot’, whose reward for his dedication in keeping his boss up-to-date with events is a solid punch in the face. Unfortunately for him – and you – these conversations take exactly the same form each time, with the only difference being that his portrait shows more bruises and cuts as the game progresses. Though clearly intended as a hateful simpering sidekick, after he’s taken a beating for the third or fourth time, you can’t help feeling a little bit sorry for the poor fella – he’s only doing his job, after all.
