If you think a few sentences equates a story than you haven't read anything beyond childrens books and even that is stretching it.
The story was so basic, and so bare... it was pathetic. Quality story, like in Esseles is what we wanted. They can do it.
They had minimal atmosphere, that's what you really mean by "it having story".
When did I say a few sentences equated story? Oh wait, I didn't. There are more ways to tell a story than mass conversation dialogues. Broaden your horizons.
