The AI is just a fucking joke. The combat isn't great. The physics sucks. Game has an identity crisis, is it a GTA type game? Is it more of a looter shooter like Borderlands? Or does it have RPG type systems? It doesnt know what type of game it is, and it does it all wrong or bad.
Its a bad game. So many events are just scripted. I like the main storyline a lot. But outside of that the game is just trash. Money is completely pointless. So much of the systems and things to do suck. The little that there is to do.
Its just such a poor game. It needed another 2-3 years of dev. Which makes sense. A game of this size and scope, made by a studio that has never done a FPS sci fi RPG, you'd expect to take a very very long time.
Even beyond bugs this game is just a complete mess.
Yeah it is kind of the king of eurojank to rule them all tbh (or at leat it is definitely the most expensive eurojank project ever).
But that does not necesseraly prevent it from being good. Vampire Bloodlines for example (even if that does not really go into definition of eurojank as it is an American game) was broken beyond belief at its launch and is however still highly regarded.
And as an aside I just replayed Ghost Town mission with Panam. Man it is so fucking impressive. The characters, landscapes, narrative delivery, fluid dialogue, tension, and oh my god the music. 10/10, it's next level stuff and just rivets you to your screen all the way through.
The highs of this game are higher than anything else in gaming imho. There is so much to love.
