I can respect that. But you claimed that you're not sure why some people are hating on the combat and then went ahead to say several journalists praised it. I simply showed that it is... decisive to say the least.
Well, you raise an interesting point, and I actually mentioned as much recently when making my Ryse metacritic prediction on another thread. I think that Ryse is going to be a very critically polarizing game. I get the feeling that we're going to see some 8's and 9's from some critics, maybe even one perfect 10 from a huge fan of Rome, and then we're going to see some 5's and 6's from others, maybe evenone 4. It's going to be one of those hate it or love it games I think. We'll just have to wait and see. One thing's for sure, preorders are decent so far, it's looking like it's going to hit at least 130,000 preorders here in the US before launch.
