Watch the last 30 minutes of The Lord Of The Rings where you think it finished about 18 times. That's how playing this game feels. I feel a deep sense of betrayal and confusion and disappointment after playing this
The story is weird and tries too hard to be way too intellectual.. Reading all the reviews, my jaw didn't drop once, Elizabet's head is too big for her body so she looks strange. The guy you're supposed to shoot in the heart is so fast and strong it's silly. So I ran into a sideroom on the airship and he lost sight of me and when I came out he was gone. So wth was that all about? And part of the story is Columbia attacking the USA? Then it's Cyndi Lauper in the future with "Columbia" (CBS) and Merry Melodies... Devine must of been on a heavy trip when he wrote this story, cause it's like he got a blender and filled it with religious and social stereotypes and cliches. And out spewed this mess. Oh and then it's Rapture. The only reason my jaw might have even twitched would have been at the absurdly predictable and bombastic self-congratulations this story kept piling upon itself. I was in disbelief at not how good it was, but how atrociously bad. Oh the stars are all doorways to different universes. Did Levine raid the bargain bin at Comicon?
Trying to access all the gear setups and vigor combinations is a joke. No presets can be saved and the Dpad with a bumper could have made it as easy as a keyboard. Bleh.
Released at about the same time, Tomb Raider is brilliant in comparison. I don't normally consider myself a knuckle-dragger, but I must be because the average review scores and comments seem like my case had the wrong disc in it. The fact that I bought the season pass makes me feel even more ill. The joke is definitely on me. :(

Average User Score: 8.5Jan 26, 2013Fantastic game, great graphics, (the fire effect is nowhere near as good as FC2), and some really amazing environments. The hang gliding isFantastic game, great graphics, (the fire effect is nowhere near as good as FC2), and some really amazing environments. The hang gliding is just terrific! My only criticism is that some of the voice acting and repetitive dialogue by the NPC islanders us just atrocious. The 2nd rate Kiwis used to mimic this tribe were cringeworthy bad. Can't a big budget game afford a) in real voice actors, and b) more than 3 of them for all the NPCs? And in 2012/3 using the same 3 lines hundreds of times over and over and over again is just lazy. All up an excellent game, but once the story was complete, very little reason to keep playing, gets boring and annoying.… Expand
