Editors Didn't Like

  • Poor retelling of a story we've heard countless times before
  • Boring, repetitive combat
  • Plagued by glitches and invisible walls
  • Puzzles run the gamut from overly simplistic to wholly nonsensical
  • The torch idea was stolen from Alan Wake
  • Collision detection is awful, for instance, shooting enemies at close range will sometimes cause bullets to pass through them like ghosts
  • Exploration is basically a fetch quest
  • Generic sarcastic protagonist
