I like how they’ve taken the time to improve on what people wanted more from the game, especially the combat/hack system. As well as a hopefully better character and more world building, because in the last game it was mostly just about you and CTOS you don’t really get a sense of the city and the people. Speaking of the AI of the people were pretty boring and repetitive in the first game, people have said that there were missing stuff that was hyped about but didn’t made into the game.
I’ll keep an eye on this one, and buy it someday. I enjoyed the exploration and gameplay elements of the first game which I think is where it all it really comes down to. But seeing the improvements of areas that were lacking and taking what we loved and increasing it times 10 is very encouraging.
It wasn’t I think it was one of the more popular new IPs of that year.
A lot of people don’t do their research when they go buying games and basically just jump on the hype-bandwagon. So what ends up happening is their unrealistic expectations (in some cases shady tactics by devs/publishers to sell their stuff) is not met and they go on venting online spewing hate dumps. With how review systems work, people whom aren’t well informed in talking about the points of the games and stuff that matter. All you end up getting are “game is repetitive, game is shit, devs are greedy, game is walking stimulator” comments, that will make you facepalm.
This is a very toxic behavior, one that I don’t think will go away for a while, until more people start making better decisions.
