And some of the missions aren't very straightforward, which in my younger days I would've liked that I had to search around and figure it out thru exploration. But nowadays I'm more like, just tell me where to go already. I think it may be because it's a little overwhelming how much there is to do.
Enjoying it so far. Looks great. Haven't really noticed any issues with animation I keep reading about. There are a couple minor things, but nothing where I say "omg that's horrible". But then again like I said I'm old - been playing video games since the days of Commodore 64 and Intellevision.
I think it's bad in spots, but not game breaking bad. I've been playing video games for decades too, so I can overlook it fairly easily. I also think today it's very en vogue for reviewers to be negative and snarky, so they find minor things and blow them up. As I said, it's not game breaking, so as a critic, sure point it out, but move on to actual story and gameplay...which so far is fine.
