I've enjoyed this game so far! It gives you a variety of options to get your missions done. The missions areas are semi-large. There's plenty of side-quests to do on the way! The combat system is pretty good, a lot better than just point and shoot like in most games. You can block and attack with the sword, and hold other weapons in your left hand. I can see why people might think the combat system is repetive and easy, but come on!
Look at other games! Assasins Creed games? Counter one person, then mash attack until everything is dead. Every FPS ever? Aim and shoot. This game was the first FPS melee semi-focused game I've EVER seen, and it looks pretty good to me.
The characters are well developed too!
The plot is a little bit generic, but it's sturdy.
The graphics are kind of cartoony. Most people in other games have nice, or cool looking faces. In this one, everyone looks really disproportionate. Yet somehow, that adds a bit more character to them.
It is no doubt a Bethesda game kind of a mix of Skyrim and Fallout but first Person, has a difficulty element because of the first person view only. Not a fan of duel wielding games makes it feel clumsy and the item wheel can be a pain to use, but other then those things, a good solid game difficult but not not smash your controller difficult.
It has good sound and a good story, and great replay value at least a couple of times. So if you like the games listed above you'll more then likely love this one.
