10 years of development for this?

Ok. So I was tracking this game for several years. It had a lot of hype surrounding it. But when it came out, it got bad reviews. I still wanted to try the game so I purchased it. I should've went with my gut, because this is one of the worst games I've ever played. There are so many broken elements that it's hard to believe that there are any with the game taking 10 years to produce and exceeding $80 million of production funds. Storyline is jagged, zig-zagging around without any real substance holding it together. Combat is terrible. The health system is abysmal. Lack of healing items and the tremendous amount of damage done to you by enemies means you'll be dying hundreds of times in a few playthroughs. I've literally been one shot a couple of times at the highest level. As if this wasn't bad enough, you have to watch the most annoying video you will ever see in your life. Every single time you die, a Valkyrie will swoop down and pick you up. Sounds like something that should be short, but in reality, I don't think Silicone Knights could have drawn it out any longer. It takes over 30 seconds for this to occur. Combine that with the many, many times you'll be dying, this is a slap in the face. I've probably spent an hour of playtime out of 35 total hours watching these stupid videos. Background visuals are pretty to look at, but the camera system doesn't allow you to really enjoy it. Bottom line, this game is a huge disaster. You can't tell me that 10 years and $80 million to produce this is worth anything more than a 3.0. If you do, you should be nowhere near video games. Don't waste your time. Don't waste your money.
