I was seeing drastically different scenarios play out as soon as the second episode, which only improves the game’s replay value. Louis’s first step into a life of international conspiracy doesn’t go completely smoothly, but it’s a conference worth attending, if the topic interests you.

Despite my misgivings about The Council's first episode, The Mad Ones, I'm optimistic about its future. It uses good writing to tell a fun, compelling story full of intricate characters. I'm infinitely interested to see where it takes me. If future episodes are able to iron out some of the rough spots that haunt The Mad Ones, The Council has the potential to be the game that changed the narrative genre forever. If it leaves its awkwardness behind, that's a confrontation I think it can win.

Adventure games these days rarely have a ton of replay value because of how little actual choice you get, but multiple playthroughs of The Council have enough variation if you choose different skills to make going through it again worthwhile. Someone who wasn't fond of you in one storyline might become a valuable ally your next way through, and that's the kind of freedom of choice all adventure games should have.
