Just finished it. Phew.
It is an incredibly, incredibly short game. And that said, I still think the last level (not just the end boss) should have been canned completely. It is the most stupid, idiotic and insulting pieces of shitty dialogue and exposition and ridiculousness I have ever seen. It just left a bad taste in my mouth. Forget Mass Effect 3, I think this game's shitty excuse for an ending takes the Razzie award for the worst finale in games. Also talk about reducing a ninja game into a juvenile WWE wrestling match. That last boss has to be the worst boss I have seen in a game.
The story is all over the place and unfortunately, apart from Mistral and Sam, the bosses don't have much in the way of personalities. The exposition at the end is an overblown rip-off from Vanquish (and Vanquish didn't even pretend to have a coherent story) with the war economy stuff. Are Platinum developers Americans? I don't understand their fascination with all things US.
Back on topic, George was probably the highlight of the story and it's a shame we see him for less than 10 minutes. So character wise,
Doktor - won't shut up
Kevin - his story about the memes and Richard Dawkins saves him from being a bore
Courtney - I think she was written in for the cleavage
Boris - Da, tovarich
Sundowner - Shut up fatty
Monsoon - no comment
Armstrong - what this is, I don't even ...
Wolf - drown in molten lava you sanctimonious tin can
Well, at least I can concentrate on the gameplay when I replay it because this is just a loose set of missions with a few bosses thrown in to give the semblance of a game. I will not be supporting this title by buying the DLC.
That said, the gameplay is smooth but the camera is problematic. 3/5 stars. I expected better from the makers of Vanquish.
