This game, in my opinion, is extremely mediocre at BEST.
Combat is just variations of repeatedly pressing the square button for various lengths of time.
Any movement that isn't webslinging is like original Assassin's Creed level of bad.
33% through the campaign and literally NOTHING has happened besides the Osborne interaction.
TC SJW can have positives to it call them NPCs now. Also I would have given it an 8 personally
It was a 7 until I hit the prison. Creeping up to an 8. But man, the first 60% of the game (even the f'ing story) is just pressing square and clearing out bases with annoying MJ segments sprinkled in.
Combat is easy enough so that you can button mash your way through but deep enough that you can take combat up several notches. (i.e., Easy to learn but hard to master.) That's the mark of a good game as it caters to a wide audience and it's up to the player to determine what you want to make of it. SoW combat is nowhere near as fun or as skill-based as this game and since you rated that 5 stars, I'm going to guess you haven't really bothered to do anything more than just button mash your way through this game. If you only utilize a fraction of what the combat is able to offer then your opinion is probably going to be low since you're viewing the game from a very narrow perspective. That's fine as it's your opinion but the reason this game got higher scores than what you think it deserves is that others have noticed/experienced things about this game that you haven't.
Personally, I rate the combat the best part of this game. Story and voice acting are above average/good. Stealth missions are overdone. Boss fights are crap. I'd give the game an 8.0 or 8.5.
