That's a little disappointing. This is one of the first games in a while where I'm actually going to pay attention to the reviews. I probably won't pick it up for a month or two because I will be playing Disgaea 4 in my spare time, but I might pick it up depending on reviews and fan reaction sometime later.
The lack of boss fights doesn't bother me much. I didn't care much for the Leviathan fight. It was kind of cool the first time, but it was too slow paced for my liking. Hopefully, the difficulty problem will be addressed on higher difficulties (less health packs/more damage). Five hours is real short for a Resistance game if my memory serves correctly (been a while since I played the first two).
Two quick questions:
1. How would you say the AI is in the game?
2. How much strategy is there in the game? Does it just send a huge mob of enemies at you or are there actually some strategic elements to completing the firefights?
