And I loved it!
I'm not kidding, I actually liked it. The attitude was there, the pizza was there, he's now buff-er which is good and he's supposed to be a terrorist because he wrecks havoc everywhere given the whole city is chasing him...not bad! I still feel weird about the sword and all, but damn, the settings were so pretty, and the gameplay so fluid I think I'm changing my mind about it.
They might as well be on to something good. After all, if this is a reinvention then they're doing a pretty good job.
