I kinda understand that a game journalist needs/wants to show off the best and worst of a game, you know… when they arent paid by the dev to give a amazing review.
But IGN only showed the bad parts. Which isn’t fair because now we have seen there are some good parts aswell, quite alot of good gameplay parts.
Then again a dev would only show the good side of their game. So from what I can make out is that there are some amazing looking and playing parts of the game with some meh bits here and there.
Does that bother me? A bit, but I backed this game and would do so again.
Look at Destiny 2, it looks polished but it still has alot of faults.
Atleast with KCD we know where weaker moments are, and they can always be patched.
And yes the game will probably receive quite a bit of ‘hate’ on release. Which is mostly from people who don’t know what type of game you guys are making, so listen to the fans and mostly ignore the general public.
