So much negativity in here. I just picked up game and have played one match (while mostly tinkering with controller settings). It is understandable to have gripes with a new version of a franchise we all love.
I started playing GoW1 (top 100 rank, so played too much) and I took my ball and pouted for several releases before coming back to GoW4. Sure, it’s a different game and nostalgia blocks a lot of the bad in the old titles. This game is the same, it won’t be just like whatever title you appreciated the most. But have some patience and try to embrace the change with some patience. There will be lots of tinkering and retooling to improve over time. Bringing in new players and offering them an olive branch to enjoy the game is not a crime; it’s necessity. That’s all I’ve got.
Now, wtf is going on with these flash bangs right?
