2.0 out of 5 stars really dissappointing, 20 Mar 2014
This needed a ton more playtesting. The graphics are very good, but very drab and it loses out badly compared to Dishonoured (which was not without its faults) as an experience. The story was dull, and the gameplay was dreary. There is no excuse for the combat mechanics and animations. Stealth was sometimes stupid (run down a dead end corridor turn a corner and jump on top of a cupboard and immediately become invisible to those chasing you). Reload times were lengthy (and frequent) and stopped it ever really building a flow. I stopped at what was probably about 1/3 distance and I have not done that with a game in years.

The pros are it looks great and the story is engaging and well acted.

The cons are it plays like a pig at times with no real challenge to the game play. Its crying out for a simple 'jump button' as you often end up running against obstacles you should pop straight over (or through) and the climbing is effectively on rails with no possibility to mess up. The camera angles are often dreadful and I have gone through whole fights with the camera hidden in a block of scenery so I can see nothing (but still won as it all comes down to button bashing).

I like it, but it needed several months more play testing pre release.
