1.02 is like a two knights fightins with HUGE swords and a shield the size a a spoon. The only blocks you get are almost purely luck, and just about every hit kills you, or come close to killing you.
1.03 is like having someone let you in a room full of weapons and saying "pick anyone you want." At first you are thrilled but on closer inspection you realize that all the weapons are made of rubber except for one. That one weapon is called "pull + backstab"
1.04 is like dirty movie with all the nude scenes cut out. It still looks like it will be good, but it leaves you frustrated and annoyed when you realize that all the good stuff is gone.
