Stick with it.  I think it's an amazing piece of work.

I will...I figure I'm early enough in that this is still the obligatory "learning
curve"...just need to slog through that part.

Yup.  It takes a while for the world to open up.  Once it does, I think your initial opinion will change.

Nope..Done. Boss fights are too much of the button mash crap I hate. Can't
even get interested in the story enough to see where it goes at this point.

What difficulty do you have it on?  My default is one less than apocolyptic because I like to challenge myself, but with this game I had to put it to normal.  I liken the fights here to the ones in the Arkham games which were all button mashing.  You're right in that you're really on a track for the first hour or so.  It takes a while to get to the lake, but that's where the world really opens up and you can start modifying your equipment.  

I dunno.  If you have the patience, I'd at least get to the open world and make your determination from there.  Set your difficulty to easy until then.  The story becomes really rewarding.  Just my two cents.

I got so into the mechanics that after I finished GOW on normal I was better at Assassin's Creed Origins combat. Parrying is super important

Finally had time to transfer all my data to my new Spider-Man PS4 Pro and play the game. So far, it plays like a mash-up of the best parts of SPIDER-MAN 2 and ARKHAM ASYLUM (with some of the formerís flaws).  Webswinging is much improved over previous games. The parkour mechanic keeps his movement flowing so even when you land on the top of buildings or hit the ground, you donít lose momentum. Loving it.

THE NEW ADVENTURES OF WONDER WOMAN.

I do prefer the WWII setting of the first season, but there's enough to enjoy in the seasons set in then-contemporary times.

Hey Matt Reed, I just thought I would point you in the direction of this title. It's the latest game from the Yakuza team and essentially plays as a post apocalyptic Yakuza game. I don't know if the licence is a deal breaker for you or not but I thought you might have some interest.

Thanks for the recommendation, Richard.  Is the title region free?  

FYI I have Yakuza Kiwami 2 waiting for me after I finish Shadow of the Tomb Raider.  Big fan of the franchise.  So glad they're rereleasing them.

Never mind the region free question.  Amazon sets its US debut on Oct. 2.  Into the queue it goes!

I played the demo and it seems like it's just as content packed as the Yakuza games. It even has a fully fleshed out racing game.

Kiwami 2 is waiting for me as well... probably another 30 hours on Dragon Quest 11 before I can get to it.
