Considering how reviewers nowadays review games being critically acclaimed means nothing. I have never forced myself to finish a game like I did the 1st one. Once you get the story twist out of the way It's hard to continue playing it.Says this about a critically acclaimed game where the story and combat is the best part. Hmmm.... Haven't played Forbidden West yet though so idk.
They just offered Forbidden West on playstation plus And I'm 2 hours in and it's not even worth playing for free. But that's just my opinion. The Killzone games for me suffered from the same thing. You get to a certain point in the game about midway through and you're just going through the motions. The game play loop isn't appealing enough to get me to finish.
