The remaster revolution continues, Luckily I never played this game before so I for one was glad when it got released. Ok so the gameplay is so much fun, Just blowing shit up or smashing down a huge complex with nothing but my hammer is just pure anarchy. The story is crap, I don’t care for it and who cares as you can just choose to not trigger them and play how you want. I love the world they have created and weapons you can play with, But I will say it again, The game is all about destruction and they nail it perfectly. Just a shame so many other parts fall down like the story, Driving and boring missions. In short its, a lot of fun but is very short-lived unless you want to battle through the story and see the whole thing through.
