Repetitive

Let me start off by saying the graphics are to die for. That's the reason I didn't rate it a 2 or 3. But the readon I did rate it so low is because The gameplay is very boring and is the same thing over and over again. The multiplayer is very disappointing and lacks entertainment. There are a couple different game modes but after one play through of each, it becomes repetitive again. I didn't complete the entire campaign because I was bored out of mind. The cutscenes are about the only entertaining part of the game aside from the graphics.

Great Graphics, More of the Same

This game is practically like watching a movie in UHD. The graphics are amazing. Unfortunately, the gameplay is decent at best. If you like killing people with a sword, you will like it. There is a bunch of that.

I played the campaign and never got to multiplayer. If you play the first 2 or 3 levels, you have played the entire game. I felt like I have been doing the same thing time and time again. The finishing moves were cool, but got old quick.

Pros: Graphics, Graphics, Graphics, Finishing Moves
Cons: Repetitive Gameplay (All of it), Not much interaction with surroundings (Some, but not much)

Overall: Worth trying on GameFly, Wouldnt consider buying it.

Short. Short. Short.

Single player campaign took about 5 hours tops. The graphics were amazing, so I'll give 4 points for that. Often the controls don't do what you want them to do. Extremely limited number of moves you could do. Extremely limited number of noticeable upgrades to your character. If all aspects of the game had been as impressive as the graphics, it would have been stellar, but I want a LOT more in a $60 game than 5 hours of single player. Worst Xbox One experience for me yet.
