Having not played the first 4 games of this franchise, the controls are relatively easy to pick up on.
First impressions, the game is pretty bad ass. And killing red coats at every turn isn't bad at all!
However, there are some ugly flaws. The pause menu is a nightmare. Finding out how to save your ****ing game is increasingly painful.
Some of the graphics overlay so things look a little off here and there.
I won't comment too much further, as I've been crazy busy outside of work so I have only played maybe 30-40 minutes of the game (and most of that was getting used to the controls and exploring).
