It really is that good
23 April 2018 | by ryanoflynn1See all my reviews

How do you have zero loading screens but maintain an awe inspiring level of graphics and a deeply engrossing story? The rendering is something to behold.

The combat is superb. There was a part (several tbh) where I thought, this is too good to be true, but it wasn't and I was actually playing it.

Santa Monica Studio did an an absolutely incredible job and deserve all the credit that comes their way.
