I guess I expected more out of GAF but I guess fanboys will be everywhere. Play the game first, then judge it. The point here is that he hasn't even played the game and is already speaking this way. I don't think there are a lot of original ideas anymore so this doesn't bother me.
the entire gaming industry is built on ripping off ideas...look at first person shooters, they "borrow" so much from one and other. Same goes for the GTA clones, the Uncharted and Gears of War clones...not a big deal at all.
Can't say I disagree. Which would be fine if the entire affair weren't so slapdash. It's an aesthetic mess, and even the move sets often have little to do with the history of the characters. It all feels extremely lazy to me, and I cannot understand the excitement people have for it in that beta thread.
