The game is amazing, Don (from the perspective of being 3 hours in at least). Most interested in a narrative I've been in awhile now.
Edit: Did the reviews make you re-think your purchase? If so, go with your original gut feeling, because that was blown way out of proportion. The gameplay does not seem boring at all.
Nope, it is more that I like Kojima games but not all games. So I just wanted to give it a day or two after launch to be able to see gamers impressions as well.
