      I hope this turns out to be something special, but it's honestly looking pretty "last-gen" both in graphics and gameplay. Not sure I need another grim-dark anti-hero who is out for revenge via a stylized murder spree.

        It kind of sucks it's straddling the line between current and last-gen. :/
