There's just not enough depth there, and in just one run through the campaign you'll have sliced off enough identical barbarian arms to last a lifetime. The story was not to my tastes at all, wallowing as it did in historical inaccuracy and cliched elements (although I'm sure some people won't mind that at all). Yes it's very pretty, but it's also pretty dumb. It might be a great advert for what Xbox One can do from a technical perspective, but it's also likely going to be one of those launch titles that nobody remembers in a couple of years time."
