Where to start.
This games story mode had amazing potential. However, the direction it was taken left it with an extremely unfulfilled, bitter taste in my mouth. The ending felt empty. It left much to be desired.
The choice to kill either Del or JD was terrible, especially since we have no idea which death will be canon going forward. So ill leave that be.
My real issue with the game was the progression of Kaits narrative. Throughout nearly the entire game she is having “violent” visions of leading the swarm/locust and becoming part of the hive. They really screwed up by not making Kait a future villain for the series.
I felt as if the whole story was leading me to Kait turning to the dark side and becoming the new swarm/locust queen. Something similar to Darth Vader originally being a jedi. To me it just made sense. Instead, the entire story fell flat after killing off Del or JD, with no real point. We only see the queen once briefly, and there was not a clear enemy I was after it seemed.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the exploration either but I’m still up in the air about that.
The story did have some good moments and memorable battles but not capitalizing on Kait and what seemed to be her destiny was a huge misstep in my eyes.
