So I borrowed this game from a friend who just won't shut up about it. So after weeks of pestering me I finally caved in and took his copy. Anyways, been playing it for a few hours now and I must say that I really don't get what is the big deal. I mean, I don't think the game is shit or "Just another Gears clone" but I really don't understand the reaction this game gets from gamers. Is it because of the leveling system? Is it because of story? Character?
I know the guy who made it has sort of connection to the Yakuza series but since I never got into them or have any intentions to, then I'm afraid that legacy is lost on me. Is it because of that legacy that people will stand by this game?
Right now I am at the part where I have to fight that giant spider monster so I don't know how far long I am but if the story doesn't pick up soon then it's gonna go back to its owners with a "Meh" reaction to it.
* I am not trying to troll this game. I merely trying to understand what the big deal about this game is.
