The setting does have promise. I won't deny that. Maybe I was just expecting something different. The enemies appear faar too relaxed even if they outnumber you. One demo the guy only had a knife and followed around by a bunch of lycans.Well you do have a shotgun. I wouldn't want to take buckshot to the face either, regardless of how many friends I have. The devs wanted the lycans to mimic wolves hunting in packs. Sometimes they'll just stalk and watch if they're alone, but they do attack if they have the pack around.
Also, this setting is miles beyond some dingy backwater mansion. I did love the Baker Estate, but the Spencer Mansion it was not.
I'm just sick and tired of seeing enemies not having better AI with each new generation. It all seems like copy/paste with new lick of paint.
