Just not the game for me. I was disappointed with the controls, graphics, and storyline. Im still really looking for that big PS4 game that makes the $400 i spent worth it. And Thief wouldn't have made the cut on last GEN, i suggest passing on this one.
When I saw this game getting nothing but bad reviews, I was kinda disappointed. I was really looking forward to this, so even after all the bad reviews I figured I'd still give it a shot just to see for myself. Should've listened to everyone else.
This game isn't particularly bad, it's just not good. The gameplay consists of doing the exact things over and over again. Hide, knock out a guard or two, run away when they find you and steal. It's just those few things up till when I stopped playing. I got through a little more than half way through the game and I was doing the exact same thing I was doing in the prologue of the game. They never added any new equipment or abilities. You just had everything from the start, which made it hard to find ambition to get further.
The game looks good. It's got some pretty nice looking graphics, but it's nothing special. Music is good, I enjoyed it, but it was really annoying when I would enter a room (no load times or anything, just walking through a door) and the music would just cut off. No real reason why, it just stopped. Voice acting is fine, but most of the time you have to turn the volume up to eleven to hear what anyone is saying.
Every cinematic seems really cheap and thrown together lazily. From stale movements and conversations to just odd progression and actions, the movies are not very enjoyable. Story is meh. There aren't any characters that you can get attached to. If any of them died in a tragic way, I wouldn't really feel any despair.
So, all in all, the game is just pretty lame. It's not a terrible, broken game, but it's not definitely no masterpiece. Just a disappointment. Maybe next time they'll get it right.
