Best Story in a Shooter I have seen in a while

Love the entire game. It gave my GTX 980 a run for its money. Graphics are just awesome. I think my favorite part is probably the end. They leave it open to a possible sequel but the way its done if interpreted correctly make the possibility of a sequel sound even more awesome.. All around great game.

Really great game hindered by its performance

Great story that is well worth your time in both gameplay and TV show hybrid, and really gripping close to the end, with multiple playthroughs encouraged for maximum consequences. It's greatest downfall is just that the game run terrible on every possible configuration available, whether you have intel/nvidia/amd, this game just struggles hard to even maintain 1080p at 60 fps, might as well crank it down and lock it at 30 because that framerate is all over the place otherwise. at my current i7 4790K/GTX 980 4GB/32GB DDR3, this game struggles to run at ultra 1080p in a market where every other game can run at 1440pUltra, and some even at 4K. TL;DR: Great game well worth your time, awful DX12 port with no solution in sight to repair the issues, especially in this version.

Dope!!

This game is dope. Great job!! At first I could not play it at all due to a future windows update needed to fix the game crashing. When the update was installed it work like a charm without stalling. I think I want to pass the game again.

Very unique and beautiful game

I started off playing on a GTX 970, and this game was butter smooth with high settings. After upgrading to a 1080 I had a lot of issues with fps dropping and frame stuttering. I was forced to play on low settings, until discovering that disabling many background processes seemed to fix the issue. Not sure what was going on, but now I'm maxing out the settings and gameplay is smooth. The game itself is really interesting. It's a totally unique game, and has a lot of really cool elements. The scenery is very dynamic and beautifully designed. The live action series adds another dimension to the gameplay, and makes it feel immersive. Overall, I really enjoyed this game, and hope to see a sequel in the future.

Great game and storyline but...

A great game and amazing story line, 4.5 for that but definitely not the best port out there for PC from Xbox One. The in-game small cut scenes even on recommended settings are locked to 30fps only which is very funny considering the whole game runs pretty smooth when there are no cut scenes.

Exciting and Engaging Storyline

Loved the story of this game. I haven't played something this engaging in years. The video episodes add an extra element to the game by enhancing the narrative. I especially loved being able to make choices as the villain. It made more depth for that character that is not seen in most video games.

Great game overall.

This was really a fantastic game all around. The story was great, the gameplay was really varied and interesting and it is graphically very impressive. The difficulty jumped way up in the last chapter, but overall it was excellent.

Poor Performance!

Fix the game! The game is currently running at around 1-3 fps with 2x 980 Ti's!!! Update: Game is blurry! DX12 version (Windows Store version) runs at a lower framerate compared to the DX11 version of the game on Steam. Visually, they look identical. Wish I could just switch to Steam version for free. I guess all the hype about DX12 running better is just plain wrong. Look at Hitman, Rise of the Tomb Raider, etc etc...they all perform worse in DX12.
