Am I worried that this game will kind of sink and blend in with the rest of the modern-day action games by adopting influences from other titles? Somewhat.
Am I mad that I'm not getting a game that plays exactly in the style of its predecessors? Not in the slightest. I think the age of gratuitous nudity, coitus minigames, wanton gory violence for the sake of it and mad berserker protagonists has run its course for this series. But that's just me.
