Hearing Jeff and Brad discuss it during their GOTY deliberations was really interesting because they were both right. It looks, sounds and plays brilliantly. It's got terrific aesthetic and premise. But the content and story are just bafflingly lacking.
There are some truly excellent elements but the overall package they've been delivered in is hugely disappointing. Especially considering the team that worked on it and the money they must have had to do it.
The silver lining is that with this engine now in place, the sequels could be (should be?) superb.
