Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you have genuine reasons for marking down there's no problem with going against the grain. Barmy how much people let it affect them.
I'm hugely enjoying the game and it really is worth the hype but it's not perfect and some of the criticism is warranted. I think the inventory management could have been slicker, weapons break a little too soon, and a full button remap should have been allowed. This to me has made the combat unnecessarily frustrating at times and as a result less enjoyable. However, I am clearly getting better as i can now finish off earlier enemies no problem. Maybe it's just the difficulty curve. I would have liked a repeat cook recipe option somehow too.
As i say though, despite this it's loads of fun and I'm only a fraction through the game. Can't wait for the rest.
