What's with all the hate?
Am I a minority for thinking this game was fantastic? Seems all the threads here are either about the endng, hating on the game, or complaing about some technical issue. I'm actually doing a second playthrough, which is something I very rarely do when it comes to singleplayer games.

Don't let them get you down. The vocal minoreity is always deluded into thinking they are the larger crowd. Metacritic puts this game at 95. That's 1 point below Rank 1.

You're obviously not in the minority. Opinion is actually more positive. There are many, many more positive posts in this forum and across the net than there are negative.

The explanation is simple: those who aren't in here griping are too busy enjoying the game to bother arguing with the haters. =D

Some of the negativity comes from the enormous hype over what is basiclaly a standard single player FPS. Games like this really have not progressed since half life 2, or even original half life and system shock, beyond visual presentation.

And the story itself is very 'forced', as if they change dtheir minds everal times during production and tried to shape what they had to fit the new plot. It's a prime example of circular storytelling, which is to be avoided.

I think you're wrong. This story is not forced in the slightest and is much more engaging than half life, and the combat is miles better. It's just as good in general, and surpasses it in a few ways.

Some people live to hate.

On the contrary to your statement, most people are praising this game. It's amazing. ._.

I would like the author to expand with examples of "forced" storyline in Infinite. Please indulge me.

self-proclaimed critic's best word: "forced."

Well, whenever there is nothing but good reviews you should be skeptical. I mean its like a stock report; if there is nothing bad about the company coming from the researcher then you should be suspicious. There isn't even a mid-way review and those are the best ones to look at for a concept of reality. This game is good but it is at the same time a flashback to a more linear age which i don't think ruins it but it is not a ground breaking step forward or a ambitious concept. It has a great story but be weary of all the 100's being tossed on metacritic. This game reminded me that metacritic is not the word of god, but the words of business.

seriously, i don't even read reviews until after i play a game or watch a movie, etc. if you want to find out if a game is for you the best thing you can do is wait for people to upload a playthrough and watch the first bit of it or a gameplay video that doesn't have spoilers(atleast not big ones)and decide for yourself. I didn't find the story 'forced' in the slightest. a game doesn't have to change 'the game' to be amazing. although the ai of your npc partner is pretty revolutionary.

If you dont like this game then I find it strange you can like any game at all, how can people be so jaded from gaming that such a masterpeice like this disapoints... the people that dont like this game are most likely CoD fanboys...

This title has one of the best stories I've ever been told. Magnificent.

Yet you go out of your way to bash on CoD cause it's the easy thing to do... your pot is no darker than their kettle.
