Combat is fine, I prefer it to RE 4&5 though I don't love those games. The point is to see the weird shit Suda came up with and he does not dissapoint. I hate all non mario/zelda boss battles but these were no worse than the majority of games out there and at least here they break the fiction less.
It is a fun 8 or 9 hours but certainly nothing mind blowing. I got it for 50 bucks and feel that was a fine price if Suda and Co. are getting a chunk of that.
