I've read a few reviews on this, apparently the gameplay and progression system is absolutely atrocious.
I definitely enjoyed the game, when it was released I purchased and played the game non-stop for 5 hours. My wife was really mad at me because I stayed up late until 3am :-D You can watch my gameplay here https://youtu.be/b92zgNuOyws
