Personally I didn't think much of HR to begin with. the RPG aspects were laughable and the weapons insanely overpowered. Silenced pistol + sniper rifle for the fat guys later on. shoot for headshots from cover and win every time. if your feeling lazy just invisible walk through every area, most of the other skills aren't useful anyway.
terrible terrible terrible plot. I mean the main drive for 70% of it was 'save the princess'... and then its just like 'oh your safe... good...' *game awkwardly backs out of the room and she is never seen again*.
then there is the 'which voice over do you want' ending machine that was awwwwwful.
honestly... I'd rather the devs admitted their mistake in the 'style over substance' direction it took and went back to making good games.
stop trying to be the matrix. give me solid gameplay, RPG elements and story THEN worry about polishing it with whatever style you want, not the other way around.
