He might be playing it because he likes it. I hope so anyway. He was obviously very much looking forward to it.
It sucks that this game is apparently going to fall short of even minimal expectations for a great many people. This franchise seems like it was made for video games and yet it just can't seem to come out quite right.
Hopefully a buddy will take the plunge and let me check it out. I too was hoping it would be good, but given the reviews so far I won't be purchasing it just yet. A playable demo might be the difference between me buying it on a Steam sale for 5 bucks in a year or so or buying it sooner for 20-30 bucks. I have been known to like a franchise enough to 'overlook' some glaring issues, but only after I have been able to spend some time actually playing it through a demo or at a friend's place.
