Just FYI, I haven't beaten it yet, but I will definitely want to talk about it after I do. How are people liking it?

Totally understand that. That's why it's taken me so long to beat it.

Super psyched for Ghost of Tsushima tomorrow, though.

60 dollar linear story games with essentially no replayability are the definition of a "40% off sale game" in my book, regardless of how good they potentially are.

I'm in the middle of it now. While I'm digging a lot of it, I think it could stand to be streamlined in places. One of the general complaints I've heard is that it's too long and, so far, I'm agreeing.

Yeah, I think so, too. Really think that the gameplay is a step up from the first game. The stealth is really fun.

I really wish they'd do more with situational awareness and other things (people, especially) making noise. There's way too many silent people who suddenly are on one side of you for me to really get into the stealth aspect. That's one of the lessons almost no one seems to have taken from the Thief series (still the best stealth games) but it was the most important.
