There were parts that I would have gladly cut out (the way too long LARP session, zzz, and the family flashback sequence was unnecessary, I read all of that between the lines), but there were also parts of original LiS that I would have cut.
I was actively annoyed at one of the twists.
Also, hippie commune vs. the evil mining corporation? Give me a break with the stereotypes...
I did enjoy most of the character interactions though, which I guess is what matters most for this type of game.
