Yes, at first I couldn't believe my eyes, how can anyone, let alone these guys design something so stupid and disjointed, no sense at all. Then it occured to me, that the base is just old combat with copied elements tacked on, but with perspective that ruins it. Amateurish mistake, and comes off as them just trying to copy actual trends with no confidence.
It's not only the combat, seems they did that also with tone, narrative, pacing, and general systems. Not sure how people who had such a laser focused thing before, went Fortnite for this one.
I'm going to keep playing, making sure until the end, just the theme alone with such production values would keep me on it. Have some faith in these people too, though wouldn't be surprised if it turned out there was a lot of personel change there. I'm also actually interested in what their take on fatherhood is, already used that on kids heh, see Kratos screams too. My style is actually quite similar tbh, harsh though much softer where necessary.
One thing is clear though, even if it turns out to be good here or there, it has nothing on old GoWs, that is actually obvious for me from the first 10 seconds.
