Do some research on the game, and you'll know what I mean. Don't fall for the blind hype, and consumerist appeal (e.g. "Powered By AMD")...
Hate to be a hater but I agree completely.
The fact the game has been casualised completely goes against what the original games stood for, which is fine, things move one and I'm sure it'll be a fun game for most but the reason the original game appealed to the original audience is gone and thus I don't think those players will enjoy it anymore.
Same thing happened with the new Hitman, lots loved it and I'm sure it was fun if you weren't a hardcore fan but it was too casualised and missed the point of the original games. Played it for 2-3 hours and my god it was boring and lame.
