I see some of your points actually. I loved the game's intro with Vass though. It was excellent characterisation and execution. The story isn't too bad either, so far.
This game truly is the emperor's new clothes.
Glitchy, unpolished, terrible story, poor mission design.
Anyone that thinks Vass is a good character needs to read some books.
I'm beginning to think this is actually a parody; someone's idea of a joke. Surely developers don't create rubbish like this seriously? Do they? It's like the end of Path of Neo.
I just failed a mission because i didn't mash the A button fast/hard enough.
And unskippable cut scenes? Seriously? STILL?

The game's got a lot of glitches though, chief among which are the map cursor not locking onto icon locations properly most of the time, the equipped weapon not changing after the weapon select, failing missions for leaving "ZE DESIGNATED MISSION AREA", and having to jump over scenery literally 1 inch high and getting caught on it mid-gun battle.
Couple these faults with a choppy frame rate (on console), a terrible UI, repetitive mission types, and constant annoying on-screen prompts and, on paper, you would think the game is a stinker.
However, I can see past all of this. I absolutely love this game!
