I'm sorry for Arkane. Deserved to have a greater success. The gameplay it's a little too clunky but the atmosphere it's awesome. Characterization of the characters and the game world is wonderful.

I blame the crap decision by Bethesda of not sending review copies to reviewing sites.Game had no hype whatsoever before launch

I played the demo for it, and I really wanted to like it... but there's just something that was something about it that I just didn't like, can't quite say what it was since I don't know, but it just didn't play or feel as great as I thought it would based on the trailers I'd seen beforehand. Although it's unfair to say the entire game will be the same, since I'm sure it gets a lot more exciting and such as the game goes on.

For a Bethesda game, this is more of less a flop.
