I'm 35, I consider myself to have fairly broad tastes in games. My least favorite genre is the Half-Life 2 style, limited weapons, basically not many ways to screw around kind of game.
I've played this about 1/2 way through mission 1. Dinked around looking for cool things, took control of rats to torment npc's for a bit. Upgraded things, experimented, generally doing what I do in any game.
I don't see what makes this such a "good" game. It seems like typical same old same old crap honestly. I don't see any new innovations, choices don't matter at all, limited customization, bland storyline ala Fable 2, etc.
SO, what gives?
