More often than not, these days, single player campaigns in shooters are the thing your blaze through to unlock content for multiplayer, or simply ignore for said multiplayer. It’s as if developers either forgot, or don’t know how to make a crafted story experience fun anymore. That’s why it’s a surprise, that out of nowhere, this game has ticked so many boxes. It’s not the emotional rollercoaster of The Last of Us, yet it still provides a well delivered, sincere story while not forgetting to entertain the hell out of us."
