Go ahead and throw all the rotten tomatoes at me you want... I thought Unity and Syndicate were underrated, seen through the lens of an extremely harsh backlash against Ubi... which they frankly very much deserved. I'm really into the idea that they let Origins bake an extra year to get out of the annualization slump AC was mired in.
I haven't been this hyped for a new AC since AC3... cautiously optimistic that Origins won't disappoint like 3 did.
I never knew there were more like me on this forum.
The wolfenstein games aren't bad. They are just unremarkable imo with their best quality being the writing and story. The actual game part just felt bad to me. A mishmash of new and old which doesn't know what it wants to be.
Felt like I was taking crazy pills, since everyone here seemed to fucking love the game.
I only feel Wolf 2 got a boost in public perception due to current real world events, but honestly game wise it still looks unremarkable as the first but there is more color due to environments not all being Nazi Super Concrete, and the nuanced writing of BJ's inner monologues which I highly enjoyed haven't been shown at all.
I would at least hope those are still there.
