Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Technical issues could ruin moments for some players
  • It's too easy to go into "sneak" mode when backing up with the control stick
  • You will forget what it means to sleep or have meaningful social interactions outside of the game
  • Combat isn't very visceral, and victories and losses feel unearned
  • Menus and interface are terrible
  • No multiplayer mode
