Electronic Arts, long vilified (and perhaps rightly so) for cookie-cutter sequels, sub-par movie licensed titles, and yearly updates to their many sports franchises are on the cusp of something that would have been unthinkable twelve months ago – releasing a brand spanking new IP. This IP, when all is said and done, should sit atop the same pedestal alongside such luminaries as Resident Evil, Halo, Metal Gear Solid, etc.
As I said, it's not supposed to be like this. Yet it is. And is it ever!
I was recently invited to EA's Redwood City campus to get a closer look at the title and also spend a fair amount of quality time actually playing it. I arrived full of enthusiasm, but also prepared to be underwhelmed after actually playing it."
