I disagree with you (in the sense that this is about expectations, what it could be vs what it is), and I am an outsider looking in, I highly doubt the game is bad, I highly doubt it is great either.
(Yes I edited my post a couple of times, I am still not sure I worded it perfectly).
You can edit it again if you like lol. Sup Ace?
Value is opinionated. Expectations could kill the Pope, or doom a President. Even a review expected to judge a game based on how much of what it was going for that it actually accomplished very expectations.
