I really wanted to like this game, but my favorite critic (Chris Carter at Destructoid) has confirmed my fears that they changed too much. He gave it the 5th lowest review on Metacritic so far. 

I tend not to let people decide what I buy. I've seen a lot of stuff from game play that I don't like at all. Especially the kingdom building. Only reason I'm going to get it day one is because I'm getting it for $35 from Best Buy,otherwise I'd be in your boat too and pass on it till a price drop

It's not so much that I'm letting him influence me, I've had these fears ever since it was first revealed, he is just confirming them. I wasn't a fan of them dropping realistic character models on the overworld for chibi models, I wasn't a fan of them dropping familiars for higglededies or whatever those little pikmin looking things are called, the kingdom building didn't look great when they showed it. On top of those initial concerns I had, I'm seeing some reviews saying that there is alot of padding and poor story pacing. Not sure this is the game for me, with other games releasing soon that I want to play, like Sea of Thieves and Far Cry 5.

86 on meta... and probably under-valued by reviewers.

*edit:
Easy Allies gave it a 9.5!! omg.
Thats more in line with what I was hopeing for it.



When is it out?



Looking good, so my preorder could be placed if it carries on like this.

Ahh I see. Yeah I can see definitely how those things could be issues. I personally don't mind the chibi.

Unless they really screw up the OST or story it’s automatically better than the first one for me because of the combat.
Dear god the “””combat””” was a mess with the first one.

Can’t wait to try it out.



Saldy they ruined the combat for me, I liked the combat in the first game with using pets you captured ... now its just a hack n slash



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

nice to see ninokuni doing that great



Interesting to see IGN and Gamespot give it lower scores than most any other publication. That's rare. They both gave the first some of its best reviews.
