This game seems to get universal love from everyone but me. Anyone else think this is the most overrated title in years?
The boss fights, love 'em... brilliant. Would keep playing the game if it weren't for the #1 thing I cannot stand about this title. Having to keep going through the same rinky dink mobs to get back to the boss that keeps killing me. They aren't even difficult, just block once and then speed attack at will. It's tedious, repetitive, and dull. Fighting the bosses over and over... I'm cool with that.... fighting their minions of mouth-breathers... over and over again... not so much.
The reviewer at gamespot called the game fair. Really? This is one of the cheapest titles I've ever played. So many things hit you from nowhere that you have no chance of being prepared for. No amount of skill in the world prepares you for some of the cheap stuff this game throws at you. It doesn't feel fair, it feels cheap.
Honestly, as an old school gamer I love that a lot of people appreciate the 'difficulty' and challenge of the game. It reminds me of old school games like Punch-out, you gotta figure out the seemingly impossible boss's weakness and exploit it. You constantly get to be David slaying Goliath. I get that, I love that, it's the other crap that kills it for me. No way am I going through the same mundane crap over and over and over and over and over.... just to get to the good stuff. Trading this thing in. Most overrated title I have played in years. Glad a lot of people are loving it, but blegh, about as enjoyable as eating sand.
