I've had a sneaking suspicion this sequel would be a blatent cash-grab and knowing Ubi's record lately, I'm avoiding it.
what exactly is "blatant cash-grab" about this game? cash grabs are usually when someone does next to nothing, and charges an arm and a leg. not a developer making a fucking HUGE open world, with a staggering amount of detail, and charging roughly the same amount as all AAA games have cost in the last 20 years.
my only complaint is the control scheme, i figured that with a new engine somehow they'd finally fix all those annoyances, but i'm sorry to say they're even more prominent because this is the first title on this version of the engine, it's "throw controller through screen" frustrating at times, pressing left and "jump down" and you guy just stands there, or jumps right, or climbs instead, all while you're being fired upon, or some other time-sensitive mission is happening. it's just maddening.
11/10 for world building, graphics, the new animations look SO much better, very fluid and real-time, there's weight behind the hits now. and not to mention the character count it literally 200+ on screen at one time, which is really insane.
but -1000000 points for the same old hit and miss control scheme. i'm sure someone's put up a youtube video of someone screaming bloody murder on twitch while trying to get through a second story window.
