Well, been playing this the last few days and I gotta say it's definitely not what I had hoped for.
It seems like game devs these days are hellbent on making it as newbie friendly as possible.
I mean, do I really need a screen that tells me to "make coffee", a god damn road direction to the coffee maker on top of having a chick telling me to get the coffee? Way to ruin the little of what's puzzle elements in the game.

The combat is pretty cool though, except for when you have people coming behind you. The lack of a button to instantly turn around is dearly missed.

The game looks absolutely amazing and it carries quite the mood to it. But why oh why did they decide to add a feature where as soon as you spot an enemy, it goes into slowmo, effectively taking out what could've been a good scare.

Story isn't really that captivating either, and some of the chars(mainly Barry) are really annoying. But it might be one of those games where the ending makes everything great.

I guess I just expected this game to be different, not so action oriented. Glad I'm not one of the guys who waited 10 years for it.

Looks like one of the games I'm shelving before it gets beaten.

End of rant.

Anyone else played it?
