It was about STORY.
For a game that really doesn't have that good/well-developed of a known storyline (as far as we, the consumers know), this game needed something to differentiate itself from the rest of the AA games out there. It really needed an immersive factor to keep you pinned to the world.[
Graphics are a huge part of the equation in a game like this. Where it is about immersion into the world, not plot, that keeps you at your desk. And they seem to have miserably failed at the graphics portion.
People wouldn't be so darn upset if they hadn't gone to great lengths to make the vertical slice that they showed at E3 so damn good compared to, what is essentially, the release footage of the game.
It is incredibly deceptive what they did. And they miserably failed at hiding that deception.
