Good Game With Great Potential

It's Metacritic score doesn't do it justice. This game is surely better than a 5. Fantastic visuals that truly represents next-gen. I actually didn't mind the combat as much as others. While the executions can get a bit repetitive, during free combat you decide how you want to fight. I played throughout the game & it didn't affect me as being boring. Besides, unlocking all the execution single/double portions gives you more variable ways to play or finish enemies off. The story is also very well done & keeps you locked in. I chose a 7/10 because it's definitely a good game and well worth a play through. I feel like it could have done better with the lack of gameplay options that you have. The freedom to do more stuff in the game would have been welcomed.
In conclusion, it's a good start for the game. Sadly though, it's possible we may not see another game like it because of it's Metacritic score. I hope not; it's a good start to a series if a sequel is in the plans, with a ton of potential for expansion.

Great game, I played it on Centurion difficulty and enjoyed it. I wouldn't buy the game, but worth renting. The graphics are next gen and a great way to burn some time. There are some gimmicky stuff they did in the game to utilize the next gen xbox, things like voice commands and recording game clips randomly. Xbox One has a limited number of titles right now and this is one everyone should at least try. I almost didn't play the game because of bad reviews from sites across the web, glad I gave it a shot!
