The only warning you will get of being attacked by the manny is the rambling that will make your spine tingle every time you here it. The stat building element is very well intergrated into the game, it never fells like its focued on that, but you will not be able to progress through the game if you so not use it. If you find it onsale or for a download, you should get it.
