No custom controls is always a valid complaint
Personally I never had a problem but I'm not against it. Or maybe I did have a problem and never knew it like a game being harder to learn than it needed to be. I tend to just go with what's in front of me. It's a good idea for action games especially when we usually come up with techniques that weren't intended, thus require weird hand positions or something.
I don't agree with his comparing its depth relative to other action games as that's only doing a disservice to transformers.
It's a disservice to the genre. It's one of the reasons this genre is near dead.
Depth is so context sensitive to each game and even if you can't do as much doesn't mean a game is worse as it may occupy another space.
This is a big issue I have. That more moves or whatever means a game is better/has more depth.
He did ultimately recommend it, but yeh I agree with you. I still don't think his vid is that bad, even if his comments are misleading.
Sure he recommended it, but that doesn't really mean much when the comments are misleading. I've often wondered why people do these 'buy or not' type videos at all.
I always look at plenty of gameplay and multiple reviews/opinions of games I'm interested in, until I've seen enough to know if I want to play it. That's just me so I always take what someone says with of grain of salt until I've tried it.
I don't follow reviews at all other than to see some gameplay. I can usually tell immediately if I want it. If you thought I take the opinions of reviewers seriously in regards to my choices, I don't. What I do take seriously is the damage they do. This is why Saur dropped out and I'm thinking the same now. I was planning on getting the El Gato device and putting out loads of quality, in-depth content for a few games like Chaos Legion, El Shaddai, Genji, Onimusha, Lollipop Chainsaw and others, but I don't think I can be bothered.
