You know what they say about opinions dontcha?
Everyone's got one.
With that said.and I'll post it again.I never played the original 2 games.
This is a console port.
I'm no game developer.but I would imagine consoles are far more harder to program in than a pc..giving the fact of a consoles limitations.
Pretty sure these guys know what they are doing.
They made a stellar game as far as I can tell.
You can't please everyone.And they shouldn't have too.
I like that you pointed out the good..which is your opinion..and the bad...which again..is your opinion..some people may see it the opposite way.
I really enjoy reading posts where a non game developer ie 80%of gamers...try to tell them how to do their job.
I would like to see said posters...even try to render a single line of code
but let's be real here..
neither one of us..would have a clue where to even start.
And I've coded a little in Maya with the Unreal engine back in the 90s early 2000 with Unreal Tournament and UT2003 [for personal team use]
With consoles.I'd be lost at sea.
as would the majority of us.
I'm sure these guys will take constructive criticism
which you clearly have done.
but to call it good or bad?
let's just say it's an opinion.
and not..where did they go wrong
