Yeah, Gameblog (french website) gave it a 40, because "it's boring" and "slow because you can't run". But it's one of the worst kind of clickbait sites I've ever seen, so nothing unusual.
Yeah, you do walk a bit slow, there is no running, but that really is not the point of the game.
A) Everything is very close by, it's not like you need to traverse for minutes to the next "objective" (Ethan Carter had sprinting, but also miles of woods and roads with nothing in them)
B) The game is supposed to be peaceful, tranquil - to allow you to explore the sights and sounds, to look at details and slowly piece the puzzle together. There is no sense of urgency that you need to run everywhere, because - Everybody's already gone to the Rapture...
C) I do wish I could take one of the bicycles and ride it around the village, though...
