I'm not surprised it doesn't have a rabid following but personally I am excited for it. Love me some top down shooters and I love that this one has a slower more deliberate pace (which is my favorite for the genre, even though it's super rare).
It looks like basically Dawn of War but you control the heroes individually. Which I'm super into.
Imagine how good of a game this can be if they actually do halfway decent missions and a plot that is any better than one of the worst game stories I've ever had to play in JC 2. Or not play. I mean that was the beauty of JC 2 (and I still played it a lot) but there is so much potential.
