How mandatory is the terrorism?
Most of the gameplay I've ever seen for this game tends to revolve around killing random people around the city. Well ok, whatever. Do I have to do that to progress through the story? The free roam interests me, the powers don't look bad, but I'm not especially interested if the game requires me to kill a bunch of random people for no particular reason other.

You don't need to kill civilians to beat the game. But to heal yourself to max you need to consume living creatures (sometimes citizens are an easy way to regain health) however you can often flee from unneeded fights or you can also feed on zombie-like beasts and the military (who you shouldn't be sorry for after you see what they do to civilians themselves)
Also there is a collectible sidequest involving consuming targets which are kind of civil but not innocent.

All in all everyone you have to kill for 100% progression is somehow involved and guilty in a way. But civilians will die if you want it or not because many of your attacks and those of your enemies are area attacks.

the only civilians i kill on purpose are the ones that are part of the "web of intrigue" which are only part of what your memories become. otherwise i prefer to consume the zombies due to the fact i would rather be part of the military personel as a disguise than a civilian. although there are circumstances when you have to consume anyone you can get your claws on just to keep alive. but thats just how it goes. because whoever you consume is who you become when you need to disguise yourself to avoid an alert. play it and find out. youll love it. its really pretty damn fun....

For the record, there is in fact an achievement for keeping civilian casualties to an absolute minimum; you can theoretically play the game only feeding on zombies or soldiers to regain health.

You don't need to kill anything that doesnt try to kill you unless it is for the WoI. But you might as well for the fun of it. why have clays and a sword arm and not use it on everything? besides everone freaks when I just want to walk around with claws for arms of trow a truck the raciests. So for that they earn death by decapitation in my book.

Litterally, runnng around and killing civis is the funnest part of the game.

I disagree, running around, fighting, and blowing stuff up is.

Yes, smashing tanks to pulp with giant fists is much more fun.

Do you mean that, or is it sarcasm?

Lotsa fun, I love a challenge!

the whole damn game is fun,excluding the part when you have to visit dr ragland to regain your powers. that part kinda blows. but the beginning is fun just to see how long you can not complete it so you can just demolish ♥♥♥♥. fun fun.

No spoilers because of story, but, terrorism IS mandatory... You will find out when you finish the game and get to know what your actually are.
