Rather kinda glad when new games get bad reviews. I have a game backlog to get to. Day One Patches are fine, but hell, this is a friggin' lengthy list, man.

Thank god it's not a day zero patch! man the nerve of some publishers. A day one patch is ok though.

This game is a bit entertaining, but very very far from being good, very far. Not worth full price (glad I only paid 25 bucks for it, which is a bit too much anyway)
