- that its just halo with a dialogue sim
Yup, completely the same mechanics. Definitely nothing different. Nope.
- not even as well done as kotor
Not even as well done as one of the best RPGs to have been released just about... ever. I guess getting the bronze medal is the worst failure ever, right PSC?
- bullshit linear gameplay masquerading as "open ended" by giving a handful of endings that are all basically the same anyway
Name a completely open ended RPG. Do it.
- a cash in on a franchise where each installment gets worse and worse because the marketing budget gets bigger and bigger
So name specifically the differences you feel worsened the franchise in 2 and 3, in particular how the marketing budget somehow affected it.
