Gawd! I hate metacritic. Sites like that examplifies all that's wrong with editorial rating system and why they aren't neccessarily healthy for the growth of the industry.
'meh' is pretty vague maybe you can help us out by explaining what you didn't like? For me this game is quite underrated at 85 on metacritic.
I started the game right before the 4th of July, and was pretty impressed, and a little dissapointed that I would have to leave it for about 2 weeks while I went away on vacation.
But I came back and started playing it again, and must admit that it's one of the funnest games I've experienced in a long time. I don't really know how far in I am, I just reached the 2nd island late last night, but I can't wait to get home tonight, get all the normal day to day stuff out of the way, and start playing again.
It's not perfect. The character models are a little basic and I'm not a huge fan of the black and white good vs evil morality system, but all that is pretty ancillary.
The fact is that I played the game a ton over the weekend and I'm looking forward to getting to play more.
