This.

The whole "twelve-yr-old boy alone in the wilderness with a fifty-yr-old man" has these fanboys drooling, but from what I've seen it doesn't look all that exciting.

Trust me, it's one of those weird psychological mysteries. I have absolutely no interest in the Switch so I don't hang around the Switch boards.

I'm not sure it has the detail of say, Uncharted, but it does have some moments of incredible cinematic appeal. I say moments because a lot of the environments are restricted by locations: linear caves, ruins, and mountainous paths. Of course, the game does have a few open environments (central hubs) this is where the game shows off its cinematic abilities (but these areas are few and far between)

The story is basically, Last of Us (strong father; naive son) Speaking of son... he's an annoying game mechanic. If he isn't nagging you from exploring, he's pointing out the most obvious details imaginable (he's the adage: it must be obvious day at Camp Stupid) No option to turn him off either (remember Windows paperclip?) You can add exp to his bow skill tree to make him somewhat more useful, but he's nonetheless a digital mosquito.

Combat is one of the biggest sources of dissension. The combat is slower and heavy. There is no combo system (some attributes allow extra hits but nothing even remotely close to predecessors) The shield can only block certain color-coded attacks (mainly trash mobs) Dodging and lock-on targeting is atrocious. Adjusting controls from hand-to-hand to throwing axe needs some tweaking, but tossing axe, fighting with fists, and the recalling axe is its saving grace. Some interesting mechanics around stun meter as well.

Camera can be unweilding and cumbersome at times. Gone is the legendary scale seen in original trilogy - most creatures are identical in size, with a few mini-bosses slightly bigger. A couple of truly fantastically-scaled bosses, but the combat against them isn't anywhere close to predecessors thus doesn't feel as epic. QTEs are gone - replaced with auto cinematic scenes.

Challenges of the Gods makes a return, but to actually be affective, you need to explore entire game map multiple times (favors, labors, and rifts) to find the rare mats to craft ultimate gear... otherwise you'll have zero chance.

TL:DR: I don't think it's a bad game at all, but the hype is definitely overblown - a lot of repetition.
