In this day, bad camera control is no longer acceptable. Period. Bad parry and blocking mechanics in a hack n slash is no longer acceptable. Period. If you have no care to acheive the primary goals of combat (to get those health and money packs inside your enemies which require both a mastery of the combat and the camera) and just want to run through without any of it, you may not mind those things, because this game if full of it. The fact that everyone has to make mention/excuses/browbeat others about their skill level and go elsewhere to LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE GAME is NOT acceptable. Period. Blah blah it's pretty blah blah not stealth... who cares when your controller is across the room in peices.
Ignore the metacritic paid for glowing reviews and save yourself the frustration.
