@Napalm: I've had enemies generate on top of destroyed scenery and thus refuse to be killed, because their animation breaks and I can't shoot their weak spot. I've had to restart checkpoints because the level geometry exploded my head into what I think was a nearby wall, and thus I could no longer escape. The swordplay absolutely, positively, sucks.
I am not trying to hate this game, but everything about it feels cumbersome and barely functional. I don't think the voice actor doing Bryce is bad at all, but the character is severely underwritten. He's just a grizzled cop archetype with a demon hunting backstory stitched on. His jokes just aren't funny, or even remotely clever. It's not bad performances, but bad writing.
I mean, look, I really dug Shadows of the Damned last year, which in several ways is a very similar game, including some of its jankier aspects. The difference is that Shadows had some actual charm to it, and I didn't feel like I was constantly fighting against its own mechanics in order to progress. Also, Garcia Fucking Hotspur this dude is not.
