I decided to give it a shot, I'm about 3 hours in and so far I'm pretty charmed!
I like the writing and acting, the dialog options really make the game feel like a proper RPG compared to Origins. It's a full-on Witcher 3 competitor at this point. The few side-quests I've done were pretty cool and offered interesting choices, it's just a shame I already knew most of them from previews or reviews, so I'll have to wait for brand new ones to see how impactful they can be.
The world is gorgeous and I appreciate the "Explorer mode" which removes quest markers in some situations, forcing you to rely on descriptions and directions from NPCs to find your next destination. Very Breath of the Wild!
I can't say much about the main story yet, feels like I'm running errands waiting for the main plot to find me, unlike Bayek who had a clear drive from the very beginning. But I have no doubt once the story fully kicks in, it'll be great!
I wasn't planning to play this game so it's gonna mess up my Fall schedule!
