I've watched some non-spoiler reviews. Though one of them described how the 'connecting people' aspect worked in general with a few examples (but avoiding the more impressive/spoilery examples) and that part really has me intrigued.

The other review, along with Digital Foundry's tech review, described how traversal works. Also with a limited amount of examples. And this is the part I'm not sure if I'll like until I try it.
It sounds like it could be very interesting, and something I may like. But if I end up not liking it, then it could become a tedious thing I have to do 99% of the game.

Yeah i watched a couple myself including that excellent DF video and it really looks incredible i just want to get lost in that world and explore. I'm with you on that part about not being 100% sure if i will like it but i'm about 90% sure i will because it really seems that it's my kind of game one that it's so immersive and takes it time and with a lot of small details etc.. definitely not for people with short attention span xD

Now on topic.. listen to the wonderful soundtrack please it's sooo good.
