From what I have gathered here and elsewhere, they're walking a careful tightrope. It's a balancing act.

They want to "westernize" this spinoff of the series (fewer enemies, fewer levels, but online co-op, a "horde-like" mode, slightly better graphics, and no more frame rate dips as in 2017 at least in NTSC versions, basically a more polished and focused game,) but they want to try to give us as much of the EDF "formula" as possible within those confines (tons of grinding, shooting bugs, destructible buildings, cheesey dialogue, much of it lifted straight from 2017 and re-performed by the new voice actors, insane variety of weapons, etc.)

It sounds like they're achieving this. It will be a matter of taste as to whether one wants to play this westernized iteration of EDF, or whether one wants to hold out for the "real" sequel made by Sandlot. I'm going to do both, because I want to support this franchise and I see this as a part of a long term strategy to make this profitable and marketable in the states and other western markets. So... I'm getting this on day one! :D

And I'm also looking forward to a "proper" Sandlot developed sequel. :)
This is the gen of the 599 U.S. dollar PS3, RRoD, DLC nickel and diming, broken games, motion control, false advertising, and rampant preorder bonus scams.

Well I might have concerns here and there, but at the end of the day I am pretty excited and looking forward to IA ^^. And obviously future titles
